SKV - Overview

Overview

In an evaporative humidifier, water is supplied to the top of the evaporative module and flows down the wet media (like a waterfall). Warm dry air passes through the wet media, evaporates water and thus raises the humidity level. The SKV also offers up to 12°C (21.5°F) of cooling as a result of the transfer of energy when the water evaporates.

Features

  • Custom designed with Humidisoft to meet your specific duct/application dimensions
  • Energy transfer while water evaporates results in free cooling up to 12°C (21.5°F)
  • Low energy (< 1 kW) consumption ensuring an environment friendly application
  • Available with 4 humidification efficiencies
  • Minimum blanking plates resulting in lower pressure drop
  • Silver Ion cartridge to prevent microbial growth
  • Staging valves up to 5 for flexible and accurate control
  • Includes SKV electronic controller
    • Microprocessor based, field configurable controller
    • On/Off or modulating control type
    • Master/slave configuration for up to 4 evaporative modules
    • Easy connection with only one 6-wire control cable
    • BACnet communication (optional)

BACnet Communication (optional)

  • MS/TP @ 9600, 19200, 38400, or 76800 bps
  • Set MAC address via controller menu
  • Manual or automatic device instance configuration
  • Automatic Baud Rate Detection

Operation

This configuration consists of an evaporative module that is installed in an air handling unit or duct.

  • Water enters the evaporation module from the main water supply and reaches the top of the unit.
  • The water distribution system disperses water over the evaporative module continuously like a waterfall.
  • Warm dry air passes through the wet media, evaporates water, and raises the humidity level.
  • Recirculation pump collects and recirculates the un-evaporated water to the matrix again and the evaporation process continues.

Application

The SKV Evaporative Cooling humidifier is ideal for applications requiring low energy and water consumption such as:

  • Data Centers
  • Paint Shops
  • Amphitheaters
  • Greenhouses
  • Commercial Buildings

Media Panels

The SKV Evaporative corrugated media is made of fiberglass material bounded with a special inorganic compound, which allows exceptional moisture absorption, ensuring continuous humidification and evaporative cooling even at a high air velocity. The inorganic compound makes it hygienic, fire resistant and incombustible.

  • Inorganic and inflammable material (UL900 Class 1)
  • Hygienic and safe
  • Low pressure drop
  • Trouble free maintenance
  • No water treatment required
  • No risk of over saturation
  • Four efficiencies: 65%, 75%, 85% and 95%

Water Quality

Hygienic operation with any type of supplied water quality (tap, RO or Di).

  • Self-cleaning, odor free media
  • Water treated with 5μm pre-filter
  • Anti-bacterial silver ion dosing cartridges prevent microbial growth
  • UV sterilizer on water line (optional)

How Silver Ions Work

They inhibit the reproduction of microbe by:

  • Silver ions break through the cell wall
  • Silver ions disrupting respiration of the microbe
  • Silver ions attaching to DNA of the microbe to stop cell replication
