New Condair RO for Better Humidity Control

New Condair RO for Better Humidity Control

Condair is launching the Condair RO-A reverse osmosis water filter, specifically designed for use with humidification systems. The Condair RO-A removes 95% of dissolved solids from a humidifierís supply water in order to reduce maintenance, improve energy consumption and benefit ongoing running costs.

When operating on regular mains water, a steam humidifier will frequently need to drain hot water and replace it with fresh, in order to dilute mineral levels in the boiling chamber. This process requires more energy to heat the incoming cold water. It also impacts humidity control, as when the boiling chamberís temperature drops so does the steam output. By operating a steam humidifier on reverse osmosis (RO) water from a Condair RO-A, these drain cycles are reduced by up to 97%. This in turn reduces energy and water consumption of the humidifier and enables a close humidity control of up to Ī1%RH.

With the use of virtually mineral-free RO water, the lime scale build-up inside a steam humidifierís boiling chamber is minimal, reducing humidifier servicing requirements. When used with evaporative humidifiers, this reduction in lime scale formation results in evaporative pads having a much longer lifetime. The required frequency of an evaporative humidifierís water tank drain cycles is also reduced, saving water. Operating spray humidifiers on RO water prevents dust from precipitating into the atmosphere as the spray evaporates, improving the performance of the system.

The Condair RO-A has been designed to deliver water at an ideal quality for humidification systems, whilst minimising waste water from the RO process. Many standard RO water filters provide product water at a purity that is much greater than that required to benefit humidifiers. The high purity means more water is sent to drain during the RO process to achieve a very low mineral content. By typically removing only around 95% of the minerals, the filtered RO water effectively provides significant benefits to humidification systems with minimal water being sent to drain.

Four models are available in the Condair RO-A range, with maximum outputs of 40, 100, 200 and 300 litres per hour. The 40 and 100 litres per hour models have an integrated water tank and a single RO membrane. The 200 and 300 litres per hour models have two or three RO membranes and an external water tank with up to 100 litre storage.

An independent wall-mounted touch screen controller provides an intuitive user interface with comprehensive reporting features. Alternatively the Condair RO-A can be controlled from any Condair humidifier that incorporates a Condair touch-screen control panel.

The Condair Group is the worldís leading specialist in humidification and evaporative cooling, with energy efficient, hygienic and innovative technologies for commercial, industrial and heritage applications. Condair is represented in the UK by Condair plc, which offers system design, manufacture, supply, installation, commissioning, maintenance and spares. Condair plc is the new name for JS Humidifiers following the organisationís rebranding in October 2014. You can find out more by visiting the companyís website at
