Question about UltraSonic misters
    #3064333 - 08/29/04 04:38 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

I looked around, and couldn't find the info I was looking for.. So I figured I'd drop a Q.

I'm curious to those of you who have ultra sonic misters, in how they function.. Do you set a timer, and they come on at certain interavals.. Or are you able to specify a certain RH level which you want the mister to keep things at?

Also, how efficient would a cheap one be at keeping a small (11'x6') room humidified for fruiting?

Any specific brands of preference?

Many thanks for your knowledge. :smile:

I find that they are best used with a cool mist. martha

You mean using two systems of humidification? Seems a little redundant to me.. If its to promote proper air flow, thats not a problem.. The room's air will be fully vented every hour. Would you suggest a coolmist over an ultrasonic mister? I'm having difficultly finding information on which is best. :P

I think it depends on your fruiting chamber. The room's air? Is this to mean you are going to use an entire room and keep it at 99%? That would be a bit different then running one for a smaller chamber. I know of people who use Ultrasonics alone, about 15 minutes every 1-2 hours (bigger chamber, is the 1 hours smaller chambers every 2 hours.

I think the reson behind the dual humidification is that cool mists really work the best over all since they give you pretty good humidity (high 90's constant) and excellent air exchange as opposed to an ultrasonic which would have drops in humidity starting when it stoped until right when it came on again. This would give you fluctuations. However ultrasonics do provide that extra omph that I think takes away the need for misting by hand (as I feel its nessasary to do with only a cool mist). So the cool mist is there for air exhange and humidity but the ultrasonic acts as a mister every hour or so.

Well anyway, I think I rolled away from the train of thought but just venting the room that the chamber is in wont do anything about air exchange in the chamber. Maybe your setting up a fan setup or something to fully vent the chamber every hour and thats what you meant? Well if so, keep in mind if the fans are always on you will be pumping in dry air into your terrerium. Maybe you got it all figured out but just wanted to make sure you didnt forget about something :smile:
