HIGH-PRESSURE AIR HUMIDIFICATION

MICRO DROP technology from merlin®

Air humidification at its best! All merlin® high-pressure air humidification systems come with our MICRO DROP technology for extremely fine atomization. This means that the water will be finely atomized on the ceiling (in the case of direct room humidification) or in a ventilation shaft (in the case of duct humidification).

The two types of high-pressure air humidification

   

1. Direct room humidification

The merlin® ALPHA and CORE air humidification systems are used when the room has to be directly humidified. In this case, the MICRO DROP technology transfers the treated water via a high-pressure network to innovative humidification units. These units are installed on the ceiling or the wall where they emit finely vaporized water into the room.

Central control units use humidity sensors to regulate the on and off times for the air humidification. Every merlin® air humidification system is designed to exactly meet your requirements and can be readily integrated into existing rooms, and also be extended when needed. It can usually be installed without interrupting normal operation.

 

Your benefits:

  • Functional modular design
  • Variable humidification system
  • Low maintenance and operating costs
  • Low energy consumption
  • High operational safety
  • High hygiene standard
  • Self-assembly possible with CORE
  • Easy handling
  • Visualization and data storage on PC possible
  • Individual interface to building control systems

Multifunctional high-end system

The ALPHA air humidification equipment is the high-end system from merlin® for direct room humidification. It works with filtered and hygienically safe water. If desired, the water can first be run through a water softener, a reverse osmosis filter, and a disinfection unit. Then the water is pumped through a stainless steel hydraulic pump at a pressure of 70 bar to the humidification units where it is finally atomized with the MICRO DROP high-performance nozzles.

The flexible PLC multizone control with touchscreen in combination with high-quality humidity sensors ensures precise and constant ambient humidity.

The optional PC visualization gives you an overview of the entire system at all times. It is also possible to record data.

Advanced quality in an intuitive design

Treated drinking water is compressed by a high-pressure pump and conveyed via high-pressure pipes to the individual zones, where it is spread across the humidification units. The MICRO DROP high-performance nozzles ensure the finest atomisation over a long lifetime.

A central control unit regulates run and pause time of the humidification process, while humidity sensors transmit the current air humidity value to the graphic touch panel of the PLC control.

The new design not only implements the user-friendly and up-to-date plug-and-play-principle, but is also technologically and not least optically future-oriented.

Modular system for trade shows, events, and more

Stay easily cool with COOLER! The COOLER concept that merlin® developed back in 2003 is based on the adiabatic cooling effect of water. Mounted on stands, COOLERS atomize water under high pressure into microscopically small parts that are immediately absorbed by the ambient air. This cools the direct ambient air which then sinks, providing a pleasant cooling effect.
Our COOLERS are in use on many luxury cruise ships around the world and also provided a refreshingly cool atmosphere in the “German House” at the Olympic Games in Athens.

The patented* ORBIT WING® elements make it possible to specify the aerosol swirling on the separation edge. The aerosol flies in a circle, flying longer for a shorter distance. This results in extremely short evaporation distances, which has proven to be highly hygienic and particularly space-saving.

 

Your benefits:

  • 98% rate of water evaporation under ideal installation conditions
  • Minimal energy consumption of only 2.5 to 3 Watt (an energy savings of 90% compared to steam humidification)
  • Modular design for easiest installation
  • Can be integrated into almost every ventilation or air conditioning system
  • No chemicals used to maintain the water quality
  • Patented* combination of step control and pressure regulation
  • Minimum maintenance
  • Condensation-free
* Patented in AT, PCT patent pending

For integration in ventilation and air conditioning systems

In the new patented* ORBIT WING® air humidification system, the air is humidified by MICRO DROP high-performance nozzles directly inside the duct. Unlike the ALPHA and VISCORE direct room humidification systems, this system does not require any humidification units on the ceiling or wall.

The patented ORBIT WING® elements* make it possible to specify the aerosol swirling on the separation edge. This saves space and provides enormous water and energy efficiency! ORBIT WING® also features extremely low energy consumption of only 2.5 to 3 Watt. This represents energy savings of 90% compared to steam humidification.
