humidity/air exchange
    #3939133 - 03/19/05 10:07 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I am going to run a cool air humidifier into two small foam coolers via two hoses. Questions: should i leave it on 24/7 or should it be on a timer. if so whats a good schedule? also, should i worry about a humidity Gage. from what i read they are inaccurate anyway. thanx

should i leave it on 24/7 or should it be on a timer.

Generally, they are left on 24/7, but they can lower humidity so in your situation, this may be to much. It may not be. Only you can tell that since your the only one who knows what the ambiant humidity is in your room and how your particular chambers/substrates/casings will react to it.

if so whats a good schedule?

Its different for everyone. Start with 24hours, if it dries out the casing to much, cut it back slowly until the casings stop drying out and you maintian 85-95% humidity.

also, should i worry about a humidity Gage. from what i read they are inaccurate anyway. thanx

They can be inaccurate, get one that isnt. Usually the problem isnt that they arent acurate, they just stop reading at 80-85% because people dont normally want higher humidity then that (not very healthy for people). A Caliber II (roman numeral 2) served me well off ebay and was cheap. Dont leave it in the chamber all the time though, just leave it there until you get your setup maintaining correct humidity and temps, then remove it and use it only if needed, or the humidity will cause it to crash.

Time is precious to everyone. You want help from people, you ask for it, leave and then come back later and see what people say. Everyone else has questions too, why you should keep bumping yours to the top like its any more important?
