An electrode steam humidifier is an isothermal humidifier which generates electrons to heat water. The technology uses water’s conductivity for electrical resistance. The flow of electric current and the volume of steam generated is determined by the surface area of electrodes and their immersion depth. Electrodes with large surface areas provide a place for water hardeners to settle. The hardeners crystallize onto the electrodes and act as additional insulators. As the cylinder slowly fills with scale and minerals, the water level gradually rises to provide the necessary current consumption as electrode surface area gradually becomes smaller. When the cylinder is full, an indicator light on the unit will flash to indicate 72 hours of service life remaining and that it’s time to replace the cylinder.
All scale and mineral sediment is deposited into the cylinder which is easily changed and discarded. Cylinder replacement requires no special tools and can be done in a few minutes. A light on the unit indicates when the cylinder needs replacement. Installation requires only a potable water supply, water drainage and 110-240V power. Units can be mounted for direct room or duct distribution.
