Condensing gas-fired steam humidifier

Condair’s GS condensing gas-fired steam humidifier recovers heat from exhaust gases to preheat the incoming water supply (pictured) to improve energy efficiency. The lower flue-gas temperature also allows plastic, rather than stainless-steel, flues to be used — reducing installation costs. Outputs range from 23 to 272 kg/h. Recovering heat from the flue gases to preheat incoming cold water improves humidity control compared to non-condensing gas humidifiers as the steam output remains more consistent. Compared with electric steam humidifiers, a condensing gas-fired unit has around 60% lower energy costs and will pay for itself within a year or two. The touchscreen controller shows all operating parameters. BMS connectivity is included as standard via Modbus, BACnetIP and BACnet MSTP (slave).
