PMP Operations Question - Humidity?
    #17954863 - 03/14/13 02:34 PM (8 years, 10 months ago)

I have placed a cake in my PMP and have it operating.  Should there be moisture on the walls of the PMP?  I have a base of Perlite sitting on airstones being fed by an air pump.  The airstones are covered with regular tap water.  The PMP has an air-tight cover with holes drilled in the top for air circulation. 

My question is on operations. Should the operating PMP have moisture on the walls or am I doing something wrong?

its normal since your cake produces heat, the temp difference will allow moisture in the air of your pmp to condense on the walls.

What I am saying is that there is NO moisture on the walls.  Am I okay or is something wrong?

no its not an indication somethings wrong.

your face is not a hygrometer
condenstion on the walls doesnt mean high humidity

etc etc

:whathesaid:
Though you might want to put that air stone on a timer if you think your humidity is low.

I went with the PMP on the basis of the idea that it was a lot less maintenance and hassle than a SGFC.

It's not though.
Plus, SGFCs provide the best possible FAE for the levels of humidity that naturally occur inside.

SGFC

Drill the proper holes, fill it with the proper amount of moist perlite, and place it in a room with no fans.

Sounds pretty simple, and it can go up to 14 hours without misting/fanning.

Done.  When you mist is it okay that the cake gets hit or do you take the cakes out of the SGFC and then mist it?

Mist the cakes directly with a fine mist until they glisten, then fan out the chamber.

Do this with the cakes in the chamber.

We mist to replace lost moisture in the cakes.

We fan out the chamber to make room in the air for evaporation off the cakes, which is a main pinning trigger..

When you mist the cakes, this should also rewet the perlite.
