EVAPORATIVE PRINCIPLE GENERALAire humidifers are 100% evaporative, adding moisture in the form of water vapor only. They are clean operating. The nuisance of airborne water droplets or mineral dust is avoided. Forced warm air heating systems create a pressure differential that diverts some heated air through a bypass duct to the humidifier. There, the warm air absorbs moisture from a water-soaked, drum-mounted evaporator sleeve and then rejoins the primary warm air stream for distribution throughout the living area. The drum-mounted evaporator sleeve picks up moisture as it slowly rotates in a water reservoir. A float valve controls the level of water in the reservoir.
