While designing an air handling unit, it is important to consider the parameter of humidity. A range of 45% – 55% relative humidity level should be maintained for the comfort. At the times of summer or winter, the humidity level of the air goes down, causing discomfort to the occupants inside. This is where we find the importance of a humidifier in an AC system. The humidity of the air can be increased or decreased using humidifier or de- humidifiers.
There are various types of humidifiers available such as,
- Spray Type humidifier, which got a header and spray nozzles that spray water with a pressure of 15 psi.
- Steam Grid Type Humidifier, which has holes on its pipe for steam distribution. The water is conditioned to avoid odor discharge to the room.
- Steam Pan Type Humidifier, which has a pan and a heating coil to heat the water in the pan. This increases the humidity level of the room.
In HVAC systems, different types of air distribution devices are available such as grills, registers and diffusers. Diffusers are of various types such as,
- Ceiling Diffusers
These diffuser types come in round, square and rectangular shapes. They consist of inner cones made of vanes, which are arranged in different directions. A square diffuser is more common for supplying air. They are normally mounted at the center of the conditioned space and provide shorter throw for conditioned spaces with low head space. The air is discharged in all directions through the concentric air passages. The deflecting vanes change the air distribution pattern.
- Slot Diffusers
Slot diffusers are mounted on the sidewalls or in the ceiling. Linear slot diffusers are used for supplying both the supply air and return air. They are suitable for large open- spaces.
- Jet Nozzle Diffusers
They are suitable for supplying heated and cooled air in large areas. These can be adjusted to make the airflow in any direction. They have advantages for long distance air supply, low noise levels and come in various sizes and colors. They can be installed anywhere like a sports hall, airports, and shopping centers or at indoor markets. Contact Tecnalco for a professional jet nozzle diffuser installation anywhere in UAE.
So what will you prefer; a humidifier or diffuser?
Humidifiers increase the humidity of a room or a building. They are used in medical facilities like ventilators to make patients comfortable. Humidifiers are large and are connected to a HVAC system. It is really helpful at dry or hot climates, when the humidity level goes down.
Diffusers are used as return air vents to make conditioned air in to a space, evenly distributed and with minimum noise. HVAC diffusers reduce the velocity of the airflow from outside and direct to ensure an effective mixing with maximum benefits and less noise. So rather than a humidifier, diffusers can add the benefits of air conditioning for a space.
