HumidiClean Series HC-6000 Humidifier

HumidiClean Series HC-6000 Humidifier
Revolutionary ionic bed technology that carries a lot of weight
The Ionic Bed. The Final Resting Place Of Ordinary Humidifiers.
Brace yourself. The Armstrong HumidiClean™ is going to
change everything you know about humidifiers. The process
starts with an extraordinary technology that will make
­traditional humidifiers obsolete. Leave them dead in their
tracks, you might say.
The ionic beds you see on this page are made of a fibrous
medium: the ionic bed. There are six such beds per tank
in a HumidiClean humidifier (more in the Models HC-6500
and HC-6700). They attract solids from the water as its
temperature rises – ­minimizing the buildup of solids on inner
tank walls and heating elements. So you have a humidifier
that stays clean except, of course, for the ionic beds. And
once they have absorbed their capacity of solids, the unit even
tells you to change them. It takes about 15 minutes and is
absolutely hassle free.
See For Yourself How Much HumidiClean Could Save
Over Traditional Units
As Table 118-1 illustrates, maintaining a HumidiClean with
­patented ionic bed technology is more economical than caring
for either traditional cleanable or non-cleanable electronic units.
When you combine costs for labor and materials and calculate
the differences for seasonal maintenance, the new Armstrong
HumidiClean is the obvious winner.
But to get an idea of just how big your advantage could be,
multiply your savings by the number of units you have and
­project your answer over a few years. Can you think of a better
reason to choose HumidiClean? We can’t either, but we can
think of several more reasons.

HumidiClean Passes No Current Through Water
HumidiClean’s resistance-type design has a proven track
record for safety. Totally different compartments keep
plumbing ­completely separated from electrical components.
In addition, Armstrong has built several other safety features
into HumidiClean. These include a key-locked access door,
password protected programmable keypad, diagnostic
indicating LCD display, continual-checking diagnostic routines,
high- and low-water level detection, internal tank temperature
sensing, overcurrent protection and connections for a Class 2
alarm device.
HumidiClean uses submersed electric heating elements to
­generate steam. In other words, water quality or conductivity
do not affect the unit’s ability to generate full output on
demand. Although normally used with tap water, HumidiClean
can, upon request, be installed with deionized, demineralized,
softened or reverse osmosis water sources. Said another way:
You get the benefit of a humidifier capable of operating over
a wide range of water quality without frequent replacement of
parts or bothersome, messy cleaning.
Less Scale Means Greater Efficiency
Capacity is the first victim of the scale that quickly builds up
in traditional evaporative or steam-generating humidifiers. As
scale gathers in the pan or on heating elements or electrodes,
output declines. This gradually leads to a loss of humidity
control. From this point on, things get steadily worse – until
cleaning or the replacement of parts occurs.
HumidiClean with its remarkable ionic bed technology builds
up deposits on its ionic bed inserts instead of tank walls or
heating elements. As a result, it operates efficiently longer, its
tank stays cleaner longer, and it maintains nearly maximum
output throughout its service life.
HumidiClean Series HC-6000 Offers Enhanced
Control of Room RH
HumidiClean uses SCR controls as standard on all units
for full modulation of steam output. The humidifier’s
responsiveness to increased demand is enhanced through the
use of an aquastat to maintain a minimum water temperature
in the tank during short periods of no demand. The unit
also modulates fill of makeup water into the tank to prevent
reduction of steam output during the fill cycle for consistent
and responsive output of produced steam during the boil
down/fill cycle.
HumidiClean Communications Capability
HumidiClean Series HC-6000 offers native MODBUS
communications protocol as well as a Class II alarm circuit
for monitoring purposes. Optionally, HumidiClean may be
ordered to operate with either BACnet or LonWorks protocols.
Why Humidify?
As the temperature of indoor air goes up, its relative humidity
(RH) goes down. When RH falls to levels commonly found in
heated indoor environments, moisture-retaining materials such
as wood, paper, textile fibers and a wide range of food and
chemicals begin to deteriorate.
Dry air can also increase static electricity buildup, potentially
impacting production or the use of office equipment. Computer
rooms, printing operations, clean rooms and laboratories are
especially sensitive to static charges due to dry air. Low RH
also affects indoor air quality.
Steam is virtually a sterile medium offering many sanitation
benefits over other types of humidification. It is recommended
for essentially all commercial, institutional and industrial
­applications.
­­­­Ionic Bed Technology Saves Energy
Because of carbonate buildup, most humidifiers drain every
20-45 minutes. HumidiClean’s ionic beds attract these
­carbonates from water, so the primary reason to drain the tank
is to e
­ liminate sodium. Since this is typically only necessary
­approximately once every 12 hours, the unit wastes much less
hot water,thereby saving energy dollars.

2-1/2 pounds. A light on the control panel indicates when to replace HumidiClean’s beds.

How HumidiClean Works
When power is supplied to the unit, the water fill valve
­energizes, and water enters the tank. Once the level reaches
the low-water switch, the heating elements are energized
(assuming there’s a call for steam output). The unit continues to
fill until the high-water switch is energized. The humidifier then
produces steam in response to the humidistat’s input signal.
The tank will fill at regular intervals if all conditions remain
­constant. Periodic tank drainage is based on active time of the
heating elements, but may be field-adjusted to water conditions.
The HumidiClean power module accepts a proportional signal
and, in response, pulses power to the heating elements to
­provide fully modulated output. Steam output is continuously
adjusted to satisfy necessary humidity requirements.
The standard HumidiClean includes the Armstrong modulating
control humidistat with a 0-10 Vdc control signal. The unit is
field-adjustable to accept any of the following common control
signals as the main control signal: on/off (SPST relay), 0-10
Vdc, 4-20 milliamp, 0-5 Vdc. Additional input t­erminals are
provided for on/off air flow and duct high-limit humidity controls.
Completing A Service Life Cycle
After the ionic beds have absorbed 90% of their capacity, the
LCD display will flash the “EOL” (end of life) message. (See
control panel photo.) If the HumidiClean is not s­ erviced by
replacing the ionic beds and re-setting the EOL, the unit will
continue to produce steam on demand for the remaining 10%
of ionic bed capacity. During this period, the unit will display
a flashing “EOL” message. After the ionic beds have reached
100% capacity, the unit will shut down by draining the tank
and will not respond to any call for humidity. Servicing the unit
is now required. The service life cycle is field-adjustable to
accommodate varying water quality and the specifics of the
individual application.
Simple Bed Removal
Toggle from “STEAM GENERATION” on the LCD to
“MANUAL DRAIN”. This will cause the unit to drain. When this
drain is complete, turn the main power off at the disconnect.
Use caution as tank will still be quite warm. Remove screws
from outer cover. Remove wingnuts from access panel.
Remove old beds by pulling them up and off the holding pins in
the tank, sliding them out through the access opening. Further
cleaning of the tank or heating element surface is typically not
required.
Install new beds in the same manner, sliding them through the
access panel and positioning them on the holding pins. After all
beds have been replaced, replace the tank access panel and
outer cover. Turn the power on at the main power d
­ isconnect.
Toggle to and reset EOL. Unit will fill with water and return to
normal operation. Total service time is u
­ sually no more than
15 minutes. (Used ionic beds contain no environmentally
hazardous material and may simply be thrown away.)
Drying Cycle
If there is no demand for steam for a c­ ontinuous 72-hour
­period, HumidiClean i­nitiates a routine to dry ionic beds by
draining and ­energizing the ­heating elements for short intervals.
This drying cycle ­eliminates standing water concerns and
improves indoor air quality.

Selection and Ordering Procedure
using insulated copper tubing. The maximum recommended
­distance is 40 feet (12 meters) of equivalent length copper
­tubing. See Installation, Operation and Maintenance Bulletin
539 for additional guidelines.
Consider the following factors to select and order the
proper unit.
1.Compute the capacity required.
You must compute the maximum amount of moisture required to
determine that HumidiClean is properly sized for service.
For detailed information on calculating humidification loads,
refer to the Humidification Engineering section of this catalog or
Armstrong’s Humid-A-ware™ humidification sizing and selection
software. Both may be downloaded from Armstrong’s web site at
armstronginternaional.com. Humidification loads are generally
sized on a worst-case basis where design conditions exist for
a limited time and do not require a safety factor. HumidiClean
is designed to drain infrequently, because accumulation of
tank solids is not as problematic as with other humidifiers. This
­conserves water and energy. There will be a short period during
this drain cycle when there will be no steam output. Consult your
Armstrong Representative or the factory if this poses a control
problem for your system.
Example: Assume the humidification load is 38 lbs/hr (17.3 kg/
hr) and available power supply is 480 volt/3 phase. Referring
to Table 125-3, Page 125, we find a 15 kW Model HC-6100
HumidiClean is required. The branch circuit should be rated for
25 amps. See Table 125-2, Page 125.
1.Specify spare ionic bed inserts.
If HumidiClean is going to be in continuous service on a yearround basis, Armstrong recommends the purchase of a spare
set of beds.
Duct Unit
2.Specify steam dispersion tube (Table 121-1).
Select the proper steam dispersion tube that meets the duct
requirements. As an example, if the duct in which you are
installing the humidifier has a width between 17” and 22”,
you should use the steam dispersion tube(s) D-1.5 (DL-1.5 for
HC-6300, HC-6500 or HC-6700).
Alternatively, specify HumidiPack™ and indicate the following:
• Duct height and width
• CFM
• Duct air temperature
• Final duct RH%
• Non-wettable vapor distance available
• Maximum allowable air pressure drop (inches W.C.)
Figure 121-1. Dispersion Tube
2.Specify electrical characteristics of unit required.
Specify the voltage, kW, phase and cycles for unit on the order.
Determine total amperage for installation purposes.
For capacities to
40 lb/hr (18 kg/hr)
3.Specify the humidity level and range.
The standard Armstrong humidistat is 0-10 Vdc control and is
adjustable by a front-mounted dial from 5-95% RH. Specify room
or duct type humidistat. Or you may provide your own humidistat
and/or controller. If you are providing your own c­ ontroller,
specify control signal type.
4.Use proper connecting materials.
Two short hose cuffs per dispersion tube are provided to be
used with 2” (nom.) hard copper tube to connect the tank to the
steam dispersion tube (if applicable). Armstrong recommends

Installation Concepts
Electronic steam humidifiers must be installed in
locations that allow routine inspection and accessibility
for ­maintenance ­operations.
Note: A minimum of two EHF-3 fan units are required for
Models HC-6500 and HC-6700. Please contact factory when
applying EHF-3 fan packages to Model HC-6700.
Do not place electronic steam humidifiers in locations
where unusual instances of malfunction of the humidifier
or the system might cause damage to non-repairable,
­unreplaceable or p
­ riceless property.
Note: Models HC-6500, HC-6500DI, HC-6700 and HC-6700DI
are shipped as freestanding units. They are not intended to be
wall mounted.
Duct Type Distribution
Where an existing duct system is available, steam is
commonly discharged into the duct through a dispersion
tube. Selection of the dispersion tube should meet the
duct requirements in Table 121-1, Page 121. If the steam
dispersion tube is to be located below the humidifier, install a
drip leg with water seal (See Figure 122-2, Page 122).
Note: For all Series HC-6000 units: Please contact factory
for duct applications offering high static pressure (>4” W.C.)
or velocities over 2,000 FPM. Avoid placing dispersion
tubes in downward, high-velocity airflow. Please contact
your local Armstrong representative with questions.

Alternative for Shortened Non-Wettable Vapor
Trail… HumidiPack™
Use of a traditional dispersion tube (See Figures 121-1,
Page 121, 122-1 and 122-2, Page 122) typically provides
satisfactory non-wettable vapor trail performance in duct
applications with HumidiClean. However, for applications
with particularly limited downstream absorption distance,
HumidiPack may be c­ onsidered. HumidiPack is a
­prefabricated separator/header and multiple dispersion tube
assembly (See Figures 122-4, Page 122, and 123-1). It
provides uniform ­distribution and a shortened non-wettable
vapor trail. Refer to Page 80 of Bulletin 596 or contact your
Armstrong Representative for more information.
