Casing humidity/fanning?
    #2839341 - 06/29/04 12:14 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

How long is the optimal fanning duration (3+ times a day) for each fanning, and also, will raising the humidity above 90-92% during prepinning speed the rate of pins forming because I may be approaching overlay and would like to start pinning asap (I cold shocked for 24 hours). I was told 95%+ during prepinning, is 91% ok? Would increasing the number of fanning sessions speed pinning? Thanks everybody

Basically when you feel the air has been exchanged, depends on your chamber, and method of fanning. If hand fanning, it only takes a min or 2.

For casing, that humidity is just a tad high, remember the casing itself provides humidity to the substrate layer. The humidity around the casing is ideal at about 85%. If you go too high, you will get overlay and I guess less pins would result.


> Would increasing the number of fanning sessions speed pinning?

Yes if your humidity is running a little high, as i stated above, this would reduce chances of overlay.
