The Jetspray Humidifier Gets an Upgrade

13 November 2008

The Jetspray Humidifier by JS Humidifiers has developed its skills to include a host of new features.

The improved Jetspray Humidifier now includes a remote user interface, advanced hygiene technology, easy commissioning and an increased capacity from 300 to 600 litres per hour.

The JetSpray humidifier was initially launched by JS over 25 years ago and has been humidifying industries and air handling systems around the world ever since. It comprises of a control panel feeding compressed air and water to rows of nozzles that produce sprays with droplets just 7.5μm in size, which rapidly evaporate raising the humidity to the required level.

Due to a self-cleaning mechanism the nozzles never require internal maintenance, which means the system needs very little attention. Just an annual check is often sufficient. JetSpray is also very energy efficient compared to steam systems, using less than a tenth of the energy.

The recent developments to the JetSpray include a new easy-to-use remote interface that can be positioned up to 100m away from the control panel. It can be linked to a BMS and shows current ambient humidity, ambient air temperature as well as the desired humidity set-point.  On/off timers and hygiene flush cycles can be set at the push of a button and a fault diagnostic system gives indication of operational errors and service requirements. A range of options is available, including incoming water temperature measurement.

Hygienic operation of the JetSpray is guaranteed with the use of new automatic flush cycles to ensure no water can remain in the system to stagnate. These cycles can be adjusted depending on use to ensure water consumption is kept to a minimum. Also a PureFlo Ag+ silver ion dosing system, incorporating a new self-regulating antibacterial material, is now attached to the in-coming water supply. This prevents microbial build-up in the water and has a strong residual effect throughout the pipework. 

On/off and modulating versions are available. Output from the new JetSpray modulating control panel can provide between 2.5 – 600 litres of water per hour ether directly to an atmosphere or ductwork system. This, combined with an option to have up to three humidity sensors feeding back ambient conditions to the control panel, enables the JetSpray humidifier to offer very close control of humidity to within ±2%rH for both direct air and in-duct applications.

As well as raising humidity, the system can supply up to 12oC of cooling, helping to reduce a building’s energy consumption. It also suppresses dust and eliminates static build-up to improve working conditions and increase productivity in industrial manufacturing.

The JetSpray can run on mains, demineralised or softened water and has the lowest air consumption of any air/water spray humidifier. It is very easy to install and new commissioning software on the remote interface make it simple to set up.

Each of the precision engineered nozzles carry a 10-year warranty and JS’ customers have the added reassurance of Europe’s largest specialist humidification engineering team to assist in installation, commissioning and servicing.

JS Humidifiers is the UK’s largest specialist humidification company with the widest range of products and offers a service of advice, design, supply, installation and maintenance. It also offers a comprehensive range of humidifier spares, not only for JS equipment but also for a large range of different manufacturers’ humidifiers, mostly available ex-stock.
