Humidifier Sizing/Calculation



Works For Less
An average computer room with 10 air conditioners using an infrared humidification system will draw about 96 kw/h or 9.6 kw/h per air conditioner for humidification only. At a cost of $0.10 per kw/h, the energy cost of this system at an average yearly operation of 3,750 hours is $36,000. By comparison, for this computer room, 10 Humidifirst Ultrasonic humidifiers will draw only 3 kw/h or 0.300 kw/h per air conditioner at an approximate cost of $1,100 per year. In this example, the Humidifirst system saves $34,600 on energy costs alone. Typical payback periods are about one year.




Even More Savings
The ultrasonic humidifier cooling effect reduces the cooling load by 1,050 BTU per pound of moisture generated (latent heat of vaporization). The ten units will provide 158 lbs/per hour which equates to an added $5,000 savings from the cooling effect. That's a combined energy savings of nearly $40,000 per year, before utility rebates.

Low Maintenance
The ultrasonic system is virtually maintenance-free. That's because the use of treated water eliminates the build-up of deposits on any part of the humidifier. With no minerals and particles entering the system, no scaling, plugged nozzles or clogs occur in the system. Likewise, this greatly reduces the need for servicing the equipment since no cleaning is required.

Speed up your payback schedule with a rebate from your utility company
Many utilities offer rebates for new energy efficient technologies. Check with your utility company for details.

Customized Ultrasonic Design

The Humidifirst Retro-fit kit is custom designed for your existing Liebert computer room air conditioner - for Liebert 20 ton to 24 ton downflow units.

The ultrasonic’s energy efficiency arises through the humidification process itself. To vaporize water at a given temperature, a fixed amount of energy is required regardless of the method used. However, instead of using expensive electrical energy to heat and vaporize the water, the ultrasonic process uses much less electrical power by utilizing the ambient heat in the air stream. Through a process known as adiabatic cooling, vaporization removes heat from the air stream to further maximize humidity control.

Simply put, the ultrasonic humidifier system does not generate heat at any point in the humidification process. As a result it saves you energy in five ways:

* Reduces the humidifier's power consumption
* Eliminates unwanted heat added to the air stream
* Eliminates heat lost in the flushing process
* Eliminates heat-based inefficiencies
* Reduces compressor use via free cooling

Not surprisingly, ultrasonic humidifiers provide a remarkable return on your investment.
