Water Quality

Steam humidifier Corrosion problem
steam humidifier corrosion problem
Reverse Osmosis filters makes water acrid. Plastic tubing is needed for RO water. It eats copper.

Corrosion has been major problem with steam humidifiers. The manufacturers blame chlorine and include a charcoal filter. The charcoal filter needs to be replaced once a year to be effective in removing chlorine. Never the less we hear from customers with heating elements showing premature corrosion. On the top left photo is a Honeywell HE440 that was in service for a week.

The Skuttle and White-Rodgers steam humidifiers have been in service for decades. A few years ago they upgraded the heating element. The element is now larger and surounds the float. The float was plastic but now it is stainless steel. We stock only the new models. Premature corrosion is NOT covered under warranty.

Filters such as reverse osmosis can leave water acrid as shown on the buttom left photo. Acrid water can be balance by calcium treatment, a filter that slowly dissolves calcium in to the water. For steam humidifiers we recommend an expert experienced with your local water to help determine a series of filters and treatment that will balance your water.

Humidifier Reservoir Treatment

Corrosion has been major problem with steam humidifiers which are related to water supply chlorine and minerals.

The NuCalgon 4296-60 primarily used for keep condensate pan drain lines clear can also be used to treat humidifier. Pan-Treat tablets can be used to condition humidifier water in order to prevent odors and deposit build-up.

Pan-Treat is formulated with ingredients proven effective in cleaning and preventing these deposits, and its use will eliminate the extra maintenance costs associated with odors, mineral build up, plugged drains and overflows.

Easy to use and safe, water soluble, non-corrosive, non-toxic and biodegradable. Use 2-4 tablets every four to six weeks as needed. Clean and rinse out the humidifier's reservoir on a regular basis.
