Hygromatik HyLine; The mode of operation of all electrode steam humidifiers is based on the fact that water contains minerals and is therefore conductive.
• “normal” tap water is ideal.
• but what is “normal” tap water exactly?
Users of HYGROMATIK units in the most diverse areas consider their tap water “normal.”
HYGROMATIK typically defines “normal” as feed water with a conductivity between 200 and
500 µS/cm (microSiemens per centimeter) at 15° C.
Some areas, however, are supplied with tap water whose quality is outside the parameters
specified by HYGROMATIK. If the HYGROMATIK steam humidifier’s control is not adjusted
correctly in these areas, the unit cannot perform optimally. For example, the electrodes could
wear out particularly quickly or the steam production could be too low.
The operational parameters set by HYGROMATIK in the factory are intended for normal tap
water. However, they can very easily be reprogrammed to fit the special requirements of a
particular area. In addition, it is possible to install a plastic star in the cylinder in order to increase the life span of the electrodes or to provide a flushing mechanism to extend maintenance intervals.
Because of this you should monitor your new unit during initial operation. Make sure that it
has been properly installed and is operating to your satisfaction.
Consult your HYGROMATIK specialists. We will test the quality of your water and advise you
on installation and initial operation. Your HYGROMATIK steam humidifier will be carefully
adapted to your particular application.
