Steam Injection Humidifiers PURE Humidifier Co. Steam Injection Humidifiers are “job-engineered” to assure highly efficient steam release into the air stream. Each humidifier is designed for your specific capacity, steam pressure, and duct size requirements. Single and multiple injection tube units are available to meet the most demanding applications.

Our unique round injection tube requires 80% less welding than rectangular designs and provides 100% steam jacketing of the inner tube. This design creates a stronger and more aerodynamic tube with less metal fatigue and improved air-to-steam characteristics. The increased steam jacketing area provides a hotter tube which delivers PURE steam free of condensate.

High quality control valves and actuators assure accurate response and metering of steam flow. If you prefer to use your own valves and actuators, we will factory mount them for you. Or, if you have a preference for certain valve/actuator combinations, we can usually supply them with the humidifier. Just another way we “job-engineer” the humidifiers to meet your needs.

All PURE Humidifier Co. Steam Injection Humidifiers are equipped with our patented centrifugal steam separator (patent no. 4,509,965). This light weight stainless steel separator completely removes all condensate from the humidification system and provides instantaneous warm-up.

Only high quality corrosion resistant stainless steel is used in the construction of the separator and injection tube. Steam jacketing around the inner tubes means any condensate is “flashed off”. Only PURE steam is delivered, free of water or particulate matter.

A variety of piping options gives you the flexibility of installing the PURE Humidifier Co. Steam Injection Humidifier in confined spaces. The versatility of our steam injection humidifier will allow you to design them into any system simply, efficiently, and reliably.

All PURE Humidifier Co. Steam Injection Humidifiers are designed with a steam jacketed injection tube(s) and a patented centrifugal steam separator (patent no. 4,509,965). Used in combination with each other, these components ensure the delivery of condensate free, PURE steam, into the air stream. Single Tube, Multiple Tube, Mini-Mult, and Area Type humidifiers all operate with the same basic design. However, the steam path is slightly different in the Single Tube and Area Type humidifiers versus the Multiple Tube and Mini-Mult humidifier.

Figure A—Single Tube Strainer

“A”

In the Single Tube and Area Type humidifiers, the steam enters the humidifier through the strainer and travels into the injection tube outer jacket at connection “A” (reference Fig. A). The steam then continues to circulate around the outer jacket of the injection tube and leaves the tube jacket at outlet “B”. The steam then travels through the interconnecting piping to the inlet of the steam separator (connection “C”).

Figure B—Multiple Tube

Inside the separator, the combination of steam and condensate is directed into a circular flow by the internal baffle (reference Fig. C). The condensate, being heavier than the steam, is forced to the outside wall by the centrifugal force created within the separator and is removed from the system by a steam trap. The PURE steam, free of condensate, then rises past the inlet/outlet baffle and flows out of the separator to the control valve (reference Fig. C). On a call for humidity the control valve opens and allows the proper quantity of PURE steam to flow into the jacketed inner tube and thus be emitted out of the injection tube into the air stream (reference Fig. A).

Separator

In the case of Multiple Tube and Mini-Mult humidifiers, the only variation is that, after the strainer, the steam supply is piped directly to the inlet of the separator (reference Fig. B). An auxiliary steam supply is piped to the first injection tube to provide the steam jacketing. The auxiliary steam supply circulates around the injection tubes and is independently trapped (reference Fig. B). The injection tubes are piped and trapped separately to ensure that the additional resistance created by the extra piping does not reduce the steam supply to the humidifier. This also provides extra trap capacity to handle the additional condensate created within the multiple injection tube steam jackets.

Single Tube Humidifier Selection Single injection tube humidifiers from PURE Humidifier Co. are factory piped and assembled (after piping at the factory, units over four feet (10.2 cm) in length are disassembled at the unions for ease of shipping).

Example

Total humidification load = 76lbs/hr @ 10 psig Number of injection tubes required = 1 Duct width = 5 ft (12.7 cm); Pneumatic valve required

From Table 1 you will see that a Model 50-10 is required. Adding the proper prefix and suffix;

To properly select a single tube humidifier: 1. Select the correct model from Table 1 by referencing the steam supply pressure and humidification load required in lbs/hr. 2. Add the required valve actuator prefix and injection tube insertion length suffix to the model number (reference “Model Nomenclature”)

The correct model number would be: P50-10-5’-1

Multiple Tube Humidifier Selection

Recommended Quantity of Injection Tubes

Multiple injection tube humidifiers from PURE Humidifier Co. include all the features of the single tube units. However, the separator/valve assembly and injection tubes are ordered separately to match the correct capacity for both the separator/valve assembly and the injection tubes.

When steam is emitted from the injection tube, it immediately condenses into tiny water droplets. As the steam (fog) travels downstream, the air slowly absorbs the condensed steam until all the water droplets have changed state back to a gas; this distance is called dissipation distance.

To properly select a multiple tube humidifier: 1. Select the correct separator/valve assembly from Table 4 by referencing the steam supply pressure and humidification load required in lbs/hr. 2. Select the proper injection tube model from Table 5 by referencing the steam supply pressure and humidification load required per injection tube (total load ÷ qty. of tubes desired). Reference the “Recommended Quantity of Injection Tubes” section on this page to assist in determining the quantity of injection tubes required.

In many installations a single injection tube will provide the dissipation distance required. However, there are applications where the conditions necessitate the use of multiple injection tubes to achieve a shorter dissipation distance.

Example

To prevent condensation on in-duct objects, such as dampers, coils, filters, or turning vanes, it is very important that the dissipation distance be shorter than the distance from the humidifier to the in-duct object. The following recommendations should be used when designing a multiple injection tube system:

Total humidification load = 383 lbs/hr @ 10 psig Number of injection tubes required = 2 Injection tube humidification capacity = 191.5 Duct width = 60” (5’); Pneumatic valve required.

Recommended Qty. of Tubes † Duct Height Up to 36” …………………………………. 2 37” - 48” …………………………………. 3 49” - 72” …………………………………. 4 73” - 96” …………………………………. 5 Above 96” …………………………………. 6

From Table 4 you will see that a Model 70 Separator/Valve assembly is required. From Table 5 you will see that a model 10 injection tube, at 10 psig can emit the required tube humidification load. The correct model number would be:

† Final duct relative humidity air velocity and available dissipation distance will affect the quantity of tubes required.

Mini-Mult Humidifiers The Mini-Mult humidifier from PURE Humidifer Co. includes all of the features of the single tube units. However, the Mini-Mult humidifier is designed for applications that require small humidification loads in a small duct size.

The humidifiers are shipped completely assembled and ready for installation. They fit into a slot cut into the duct wall, and the slot is sealed with a factory duct plate. Specially designed low capacity valve Cv’s assure precise humidity control without over-humidification, valve “hunting”, or saturation. A complete line of pneumatic, electric modulating, and electric on-off controlled valve actuators are available.

They are ideally suited for any high humidity job where fast steam dissipation in cool air, in a short-run duct, is essential. That means hospital delivery rooms, the O.R., the I.C.U., or “clean rooms” in any high tech application.

Piping Notes: 1.

A steam trap and strainer (not shown in the above illustration) are provided with each Area Type steam injection humidifier.

2.

On installation, allow 3 to 4 feet (7.6 to 10.2 cm) above the humidifier to prevent the rising steam from condensing on the ceiling.

3.

When piping, take steam supply from the top of the steam main. The steam trap should drain to a return line with no back pressure; a check valve should be utilized.

System 1 In this simple heating/ventilating system, the desired location of the humidifier is downstream from the fan. The use of a highlimit duct humidistat is recommended if operating conditions are such that saturation could be reached in the duct. The high-limit humidistat should be 12 to 14 feet (365-427 cm) downstream from the humidifier injection tube. A space humidistat controls the humidifier.

H

System 2 This is a 100% outside air system with preheat and reheat coils. The desired location of the primary humidifier is downstream from the reheat coil where air temperature is highest. Where operating conditions vary considerably from design, two humidifiers may be used; control is sequenced from a single space or exhaust air duct humidistat. The first humidifier will deliver one-third of the total capacity. The second humidifier is sized for two-thirds of the total capacity. When control is sequenced in this manner, much closer control is achieved.

When outdoor air conditions are milder, the first humidifier will satisfy the space conditions by supplying a portion of the total design capacity. As the outside air becomes colder and humidity demand increases, the second unit begins to open in response to the additional demand. When the humidifiers are sequenced as described, much closer control is achieved over a wide range of outside air conditions and super saturation of the duct at minimum humidification load is avoided. Use of a high-limit controller is desirable.

System 3 Shown here is a 100% outside air system using a primary and secondary humidifier. In this system, the primary humidifier is controlled by a duct humidistat 12 to 14 feet (366-427 cm) downstream from the humidifier and at a level that maintains a space condition of about 35% R.H. at 70°F. The secondary humidifier is controlled by a space humidistat. The secondary unit can be sized to boost space R.H. from 35% R.H. to a higher level such as 55% R.H. Combining humidifiers in this manner allows humidity for each zone to be controlled at a level higher than would otherwise be possible.

System 5 is a simple face and bypass unit. The humidifier is located downstream from the damper section so moisture enters the air stream in the area where best mixing and air temperature conditions exist.

This is a high velocity, dual duct system. In this system, best results are achieved with primary and booster humidification. The primary humidifier is located as far upstream as possible from the fan and is controlled by a duct humidistat located ahead of the hot and cold deck coils. The booster humidifier is located downstream from the mixing box and is controlled by a humidistat in the space. The primary humidifier should be located no closer than 3 feet (91 cm) from the fan and the booster humidifier no closer than 3 feet (91 cm) from the grill. In both cases, the use of multiple injection tube units should be considered.

Condensate Return Line In order for the steam trap to remove condensate, it is essential that pressure in the condensate return line be substantially below the steam’s supply pressure. In the event the return line is at a higher elevation than the steam trap, the trap should be drained to a floor drain or the condensate must be elevated. In elevating condensate, an intermittent discharge trap, such as an inverted bucket type, should be used. Every 2 psi (13.8 kpa) of steam pressure will elevate the condensate one foot (30.5 cm). Also, a check valve must be installed on the outlet of the steam trap to prevent back flow of the elevated condensate into the humidifier.

Expanded Duct Section To avoid restricting air flow in a duct 8 inches (20.3cm) or less in height, use of an expanded duct section is recommended.

Proper Length Injection Tubes For best dissipation of the steam into the air stream, always use injection tubes that fully span the widest dimension of the duct.

Vertical Tube Humidifiers In those installations where the duct is taller than it is wide, a vertical tube humidifier may be used to gain tube length. NOTE: Vertical tube humidifiers must always be installed with the tube(s) pointing upwards to avoid trapping condensate in the outboard end of the injection tube.

Insulated Injection Tubes Where specifications require, insulated injection tubes are available. The insulation is 1/2” (1.3 cm) fiberglass covered with a 24 gauge stainless steel jacket. NOTE: Insulated injection tubes must be installed with the stream emitting with the air flow to prevent condensation on the outer insulation jacket.

Fan Interlock Switch PURE Humidifier Co. recommends the use of an air flow proving switch or fan interlock to prove air flow prior to humidifier operation. Humidifier operation without air flow will result in over-saturation of the air stream. Air flow proving switches are available as optional equipment from your PURE Humidifier Co. representative.

High-Limit Humidistat PURE Humidifier Co. recommends the use of a duct high-limit humidistat to prevent humidifier operation when the duct humidity level exceeds 85% relative humidity. Humidifier operation above 85% relative humidity can result in over saturation of the air stream. High-limit humidistats are available as optional equipment from your PURE Humidifier Co. representative.

Temperature Interlock Switch PURE Humidifier Co. recommends the use of an Interlock temperature switch on applications with steam pressures below 5 psi (34.5 kpa) or as a safety switch to prevent humidifier operation in the case of a boiler or trap malfunction. Interlock temperature switches (pneumatic or electric) are available as optional equipment from your PURE Humidifier Co. representative.

Location of Humidifiers Humidifiers should be located: 1. In the center of duct or air handling unit. 2. Not less than 3 feet (91.4 cm) upstream from fan inlets, tees, “ells”, turning vanes, discharge grills or other in-duct objects. 3. Not less than 10 feet (304.8 cm) upstream from high efficiency filters. 4. Not less than 10 feet (304.8 cm) upstream from humidity or temperature controllers.
