hello i’m randy lens with andin and
today we’re at our point net
manufacturing facility all of the engine
products are made right here and point
out Wisconsin I’m gonna have a quick
overview today of our steam humidifiers
model a s 35 and a s 35 FP the anti
Steven Mehta fires our electrode type
steam it afire so they are creating
steam by sending electricity through the
water which excites the water molecules
makes them hot and creates the boiling
action you know similar to like a stove
the higher the voltage the higher you
turn the knob up the more it’ll output
so there’s six capacities in this unit
it runs off of 120 volts 208 volts or
240 volts so there’s a jumper in there
that you move depending on what voltage
you’re gonna apply it to the unit
there’s a dip switch in there that
allows it to run at 16 amps or 11 and a
half amps so if used to put it to the
lowest voltage and the lowest ampere 820
volts at 11.5 amps the unit’s gonna put
out about 11 to 12 gallons of water into
the air a day go to the highest setpoint
240 volts 16 amps and now the unit’s
gonna put out about 35 gallons of water
a day which is roughly two hundred and
seventy seven pints of water inside of
this unit is a canister a cylinder this
is where everything happens that’s the
brain brings the operation that’s where
the water is boiled and steam is created
and comes out at the top of the unit so
I’m just gonna pull that out of there
there’s a high water pin and by the way
this is all the maintenance if there
really is when you change out the unit
take the spark plug wire looking things
off they’re called electrodes and just
lift the cannister out of there
out of the drain out of the drain valve
down inside of here if we were replacing
that we would look for any buildup and
just wipe that out there’s an o-ring in
there that we replaced comes with every
new canister so inside of this unit
there is actually these these two
connections are connected to voltage on
these two electrodes there
two plates waffle looking plates inside
of here and when we put electricity on
them electricity passes through the
water from one plate to another back and
forth and back and forth exciting the
water molecules and creating the steam
in order for steam to be created and
electricity to pass back and forth in
the water between the plates the water
has to have enough conductivity so in
this in this application we would want
to use straight tap water don’t tie into
any of your RO systems deionized water
systems we want to go straight tap water
to have enough minerals in the water it
works well with softened water as well
just don’t use deionized water or
reverse osmosis water there won’t be
enough minerals in there to conduct the
electricity from plate to plate we’re
looking usually for about 125 micro
Siemens of water conductivity to make
this work really well if it’s lower than
that if you get it on around 100 or
maybe 80 micro Siemens we do have a low
conductive canister the unit comes with
the number a s 80 that’s the standard
canister and then we also offer the a s
80 LC for a low conductive canister as
well for low conductive water the
canister life itself will vary if it
depends on the amount of run time the
unit has and the type of water the going
into it so the longer it runs with the
harder the water is more minerals in it
it will have a shorter life than water
unit that doesn’t run as long and has
water with less minerals in it so but it
will be it will need to be replaced
several times a year and every time you
replace this canister it’s like going to
the oil going to Jiffy Lube and having
your oil change and they give you a
brand-new motor every time this is where
everything happens so getting this new
canister every time starts up like a
brand new unit every time you replace it
so the steam is created in there water
is boiling creating the steam allowing
that’s come out at the top of the unit
and we have this comes in the Box this
heavy duty marine grade steam hose that
would connect to there to the top of the
canister with a hose clamp to make sure
it doesn’t leak the other end of this
unit would go off to our
method that we’re gonna use as I had
mentioned we have two models we have the
a s 35 the a s 35 comes with a steam
wand like this and this would go into
the ductwork and I would call this you
know a professional HVAC contractor
installation at this point because we’re
gonna we’re gonna go into the HVAC
system we’ve got some things to worry
about about how much absorption distance
we have for the steam to get absorbed
into the air we tie into the HVAC
systems electronics to make sure that
the unit only runs when the air
conditioners on or the air-conditioner
of the system span the a s 35 I’d
recommend having it professionally
installed so again the steam comes out
of the top through this hose connect
either to this one or to our fan pack
this is what the fan pack looks like it
was originally designed to be recessed
through a wall so there’s mounting
bracket so this would all be covered up
but in a grow room
we’re aesthetics are not as important
this can just be screwed right straight
to a wall and just set out there like
this so the steam would come out of the
top of the unit come out through that
hose and connect to the steam dispersion
tube which is setting inside of this
unit it bolts it bolts into here and the
steam hose would connect to the bottom
with a hose clamp as you can see there’s
a little basically a computer fan a
little bitty computer fan in here so
it’s a steam as the steam pushes up
through the steam hose comes out this
block air is coming in through these
holes going through that fan pushing out
these louvers and going straight out
into the space so this was set this
could set right above it it can be you
know as far away as you want it to be we
have that six foot hose but that can be
cut down to shorter distances it does
not have to be six feet this is hot so
of course we want to have it somewhere
where it’s safe or somebody’s not going
to necessarily touch it we don’t want
the steam blowing right out on the
plants we don’t want this really down to
floor so we’re blowing steam onto the
floor so we would put this up you know
maybe six to eight feet in the air and
let it blow out over top of the of the
Anna P this is great for for mother
clone rooms for veg rooms and it even
works well and flower bloom rooms and
there are people use them in cure rooms
so that we can slowly bring down the
humidity and bring the humidity back up
they’re getting more and more popular in
cure rooms as well so the a s 35 again
is the steam dispersion tube model the a
s 35 FP is the fan pack model the FP for
fan pack so if you buy the 30 s 35 FP
you’ll get everything you need including
the fan pack all units come with this
control this controls allows us to get
up to high humidity levels you can set
this up to 80% or higher if you’re
trying to keep things very high like in
a mother clone room this attaches to the
unit and turns it on and off on the
front of here there are there are lights
that light up the on-off light here is
embedded into this into the switch and
it turns on and it is green and most
these other lights are green as well one
word of caution when it does need
service at the end of the canister life
this the service light turns red so you
may not want that in the room or just be
aware of it you may want to shield that
with something so that if you don’t want
any that little red LED coming on if
you’re in a bloom room then that can be
covered up just like all in the products
this has a complete five year
bumper-to-bumper warranty for parts call
our tech support number if you have any
questions and we’ll be glad to help you
install this unit and get it set up
properly

Steam Humidifier Review

For many years, the steam humidifier was the only way to get your family’s health in check. They were especially useful for the elderly and those with respiratory ailments, as well as for infants. Nowadays, there are several other options to consider as well. If you are considering getting one of these devices, there are many factors that you should keep in mind. By taking the time to do so, you are sure to find one that will best suit your needs.

Steam humidifiers have always had a reputation for being a very effective way to cleanse your air. They work by heating up water and the water is then converted to steam. The steam in the steam humidifier acts in conjunction with your boiler. The boiler will facilitate the dispersion of steam in a lower velocity to the home. As the vapor moves through the air it picks up dirt, dust, and bacteria. In some cases, the air is also purified.

Today, there are more advanced versions of steam humidifiers available on the market. They come in the form of portable units that can be moved from room to room, as well as those that are placed in the bathroom. This helps to make the device even more handy. Some of these devices can even be set up in the kitchen for the added convenience.

Steam humidifiers are usually quite large and bulky and have a relatively high price tag. However, with a little bit of shopping around, you can find models that will fit in any room of your house. For instance, many models can be put in the bathroom as they can be used in conjunction with an existing steam shower. In fact, some models have built in showers, which makes them even more convenient than they already are.

In terms of safety, you should check with the manufacturer of the steam humidifier to make sure they are approved for use in your area. You should also check with local authorities to make sure the device is actually legal in your area. As with any appliance, never try to operate a steam humidifier without first checking the proper safety precautions. This includes the use of goggles, earplugs, and gloves. Also, it is advisable to keep an extra pair of air filters in case of any spillages.

The final consideration to make is whether you will be getting a steam humidifier for your home or business. For example, if you are going for an office setting, you may want to stick with a portable device. As such, you would not want to use a unit that is too large for the area you plan on using it in. If you want to get a more traditional looking device, such as a table-top model, it may be wise to stay away from those that are bulky and heavy.

  1. M. Smith

    This handy little device can be found in our nursery. I set it to medium and it lasts about 24 hours (I set it at 55 percent humidity, it usually only reaches 40 percent according to the hygrometer – but we normally have all the doors open so its a big space). It rumbles a bit, but I think it’s pleasant white noise. As an added bonus, when the door is closed, it slightly warms up the nursery. I connected it to an energy meter, and it costs about 17 cents per hour for three hours (on medium). I took the liberty of pouring boiling water on myself (the water that lives in the bases, the mist is tolerable) and it’s very hot – certainly not for small hands. I would not trust my child around this until they are no longer trapped by a crib. I went through one cleaning cycle, which took about two weeks, and the build-up was shocking, but it was pretty simple to clean with the Air-O-Swiss AOS 7417 EZ Cal – Cleaner/Descaler (the main ingredient of which is citric acid) – run this cycle, give it a little toothbrush scrub and rinse, and you’re ready to go.

    Cons:
    – The water tank does not seal securely and can leak on the way from the sink to the unit, only to be turned over at the last minute.
    – Since there is no satisfying click or lock when the water tank is in the device, it is convenient to get it off-center.

  2. Grayson

    To be honest, I’ve only had this unit for 4 days. I did a timed run, and considering the limited tank size, the unit ran continuously on the highest setting and highest humidity for 10 hours 42 minutes before running out of water. I was concerned because I read a review that said it expired in 3 hours, but this was not the case for me. I am very happy with this unit and will recommend it to anyone who wants to avoid the bacteria and mineral accumulation caused by the famous “cool-mist” units on the market today. Thank you, Boneco, for producing a decent steam humidifier, which is difficult to find these days.

  3. Swift

    It increased the humidity in our living room/kitchen and was not unsightly.

    Cleaning it wasn’t too difficult because it doesn’t need filters; however, the silicone cup and heat part were a little difficult to clean and often needed a few hours of soaking in vinegar. This will need to be done at least once a week.

    Then it seemed that something in it began to overheat, causing the silicone cup to bubble.

    I increased the frequency of cleaning/de-scaling to every three days.

    I know it said to use distilled water, but that wasn’t always the case. Distilled water costs $1 per gallon, and the humidifier will use 1-3 gallons of water per day only for our living room and kitchen.
