What is Wet Bulb Temperature?

Wet bulb temperature is the lowest temperature that can be achieved by evaporating water into air at constant pressure, measured using a thermometer with its bulb covered by a wet cloth. It provides insights into the cooling potential of air through evaporation and is a key parameter in psychrometrics, commonly used in HVAC engineering and meteorology. Wet bulb temperature helps assess humidity levels, determine dew point, and evaluate the efficiency of cooling processes without direct application mentioned.

What is Humidification Process?

The humidification process involves adding moisture to indoor air to increase its relative humidity. It begins by measuring the current humidity level using a hygrometer. A desired humidity level is set, typically between 30% and 60%. Different humidification methods like evaporative, steam, or ultrasonic are chosen based on space requirements. The humidifier, often equipped with a humidistat, is then operated to release moisture. As the humidifier maintains the setpoint, it continuously monitors and controls humidity levels. Regular maintenance is essential to prevent issues and ensure safe and effective operation, especially in dry environments or during winter when indoor heating can dry out the air.
