Mini One Technical
General operating principles
Air is pressurized in a free standing pump and directed through an optional pollution filter to a proprietary mechanism in the main module. In the Mini One module, moisture is either removed or added by the single mechanism. This air is directed through a small flexible tube to an input port in the showcase. Air flow to the enclosure is constant.
In normal applications the air is delivered only at the preset relative humidity. Higher or lower humidity feeds will be used to balance showcase leakage and other demands, returning to constant humidity feed when appropriate.
An optional valve with integrated sensor (the sensor / valve) may be used to guarantee an unchanging humidity feed, and will isolate the showcase from the airflow should the feed humidity exceed preset limits. (The sensor/valve must be used for multiple enclosure applications, with a total volume usually not exceeding five cubic meters.)
A direct feed (with no sensor / valve) can provide extremely effective operation, allowing the Mini one to control humidity on very large or leaky cases (see below)
Recirculating Feed: a return hose may be used to reduce water consumption where ambient humidity levels are drier than showcase targets. When necessary, the Mini One will use water from the built-in reservoir to raise the RH of the air entering the enclosure. In dry conditions this demand may be substantial, and use of a remote reservoir and/or the recirculating option is suggested .

Minimum Humidity Settings
At normal room temperatures (22 C / 71.5F) the unit can theoretically achieve an RH output of 25%. Lower ambient temperatures will substantially limit minimum achievable humidity, and we do not recommend settings below 35%. Click here for more information on minimum humidity settings.LINK????
The Mini One is well suited for close control of humidification chambers, where humidity levels can be ramped and maintained as needed.
