Condair RS resistive steam humidifier

This electric steam humidifier delivers accurate humidity control without the expense of plastic disposable boiling cylinders and simplifies maintenance with its patented scale management system.

Scale that forms on the heating elements breaks off under normal operation and falls into the externally located scale collector tank. Scale removal is a simple process of draining the scale collector tank with the push of a button, allowing the unit to cool then disconnecting the tank and emptying it.

The Condair RS can operate with mains water to provide ±3%RH control or on reverse osmosis (RO) water to offer ±1%RH control. When operating on RO water, scale build-up is virtually eliminated, significantly reducing the unit's required maintenance.

By locating the water inlet and drain between the twin walls of the outer cylinder wall and an inner cylinder liner, the temperature is kept at a level that inhibits scale formation in this area. This "cold water pool" prevents blockages of the inlet and drain by scale to further enable extended periods between servicing.

An advanced touch screen controller provides intuitive control over operation and very detailed reporting, including downloading performance, fault and service history into Excel for advanced diagnostics. BMS connectivity is standard with BACnet and Modbus protocols.

UK Managing Director

“Dryness is the enemy of pianos so humidity is really important. We need 40% to 50% humidity all the time to protect the wood, whether they’re in the showroom or the workshop. Condair’s units are ideal for the job. And because we rely so heavily on the reliability of the humidifiers, we also contracted with Condair to service the humidifiers at regular intervals.

Would I recommend Condair? Oh yes, they’ve supplied great service.”
