CRUV Humidifier
This humidifier is designed to be used with either softened or unsoftened water (softened water will greatly
reduce humidifier maintenance and improve overall
system performance). The probe-type level control
system requires water conductivity of at least 100
micromhos/cm (2 grains/gal or 34.2 mg/liter) to function,
and therefore, will not operate with demineralized water.
For humidification using demineralized water, see
CRUV-DI below.

The evaporating chamber of this humidifier is
constructed of corrosion-resistant stainless steel alloy
to resist the corrosive effects of mineral-free water.
Since the CRUV-DI humidifier is designed for use with
deionized or RO demineralized water, there is no need to
clean the unit, although an annual inspection of the
evaporating chamber is recommended.

INSTALLATION
Locate the CRUVTM humidifier near an electric power
source, water supply and a drain. Verify that sufficient
room is provided for a water seal in the drain piping. Refer
to Figure 4-3.
Examples of Installation in an Air Stream
Figure 4-1: Installation in an Air-Conditioning Unit
In an Air-Conditioning Unit
When installing a humidifier inside an air conditioning unit,
provide adequate support; allow easy access for removing
and servicing the evaporating chamber, and provide
adequate clearance to install the vapor hose and dispersion tube (see figure 4-1) and water seal. Refer to page 6
for mounting hole locations.
In a Duct
When installing the dispersion tube in a duct, allow for a
continuous pitch of the vapor hose back to the evaporating
chamber. Otherwise, use a water seal and drain (see
examples in figures 4-2 and 5-1). The dispersion tube can
also be placed vertically in the duct with some models
(see figure 5-2).
Place the control cabinet or electrical sub-panel in a
grounded protective metal enclosure and mount in a dry
and accessible location.
If draining the evaporating chamber by gravity is not
possible, use a small condensate lift pump, rated to pump
212° F/100°C water.

INSTALLATION
Piping
Water make-up piping should be of corrosion-resistant,
code-approved material (copper, steel, or plastic). The
final connection size is ¼" NPT. In cases where water
hammer is possible, a shock arrestor should be
considered.
Figure 5-2: Vertical Dispersion Tube
Duct
Drain piping should be of code approved material
(copper, steel, or plastic rated for 212°F/100°C minimum).
The ¾" O.D. copper sweat connection should not be
reduced in size. (See figure 4-3).
If there is no sewer available for drainage, the unit can
be piped for manual drainage. Consult factory for instructions.
Wiring
The CRUVTM is designed for a single source of electric
power supply. Future tank removal will be easier if plugs or
quick connects and extra long conduits are used to
provide electrical power to components from subpanel.
Wiring must meet all electrical codes, the current characteristics, and capacity requirements should be checked
against the nameplates. The electrical subpanel should be
mounted in a location convenient for service. Wiring must
be in accordance with all governing codes, and with the
humidifier wiring diagram. The wiring diagram(s) are
shipped loose with the unit. The wiring between the control
cabinet and humidifier must be rated at 105°C, 600V.
Caution: Only qualified electrical personnel
should perform installation procedures.
OM-775-1
The dispersion tube can be mounted vertically in the duct.
Note: When dispersion tube is more than 10' (3 m) from unit,
insulated, 1½" (38 mm) diameter minimum rigid tubing or
pipe should be used instead of vapor hose. This application
is not recommended for CRUV-10 through CRUV-34.

Water Seal
OM-774-1
When horizontally mounting the dispersion tube in an air
stream that is located lower than the CRUV humidifier a water
seal (to prevent steam from escaping at the open drain) must
be provided in the drain line and line extended to open drain,
as shown, to drain the condensate. A multiple dispersion
tube bank must be used with a CRUV-30 or CRUV-34
because of its high output (see figure 5-3).
When rapid absorption is extremely critical, a RAPID-SORB
multiple-tube bank can provide 100% steam absorption within
three feet or less - at any duct temperature. A multiple tube or
RAPID-SORB dispersion system is required for CRUV-30 or
CRUV-34.
For complete information on calculating the number of
dispersion tubes required to satisfy steam absorption
distance requirements, consult your sales representative,
the DRI-STEEM factory, or use DRI-STEEM's DRI-CALC®
Humidification Sizing and Selection Software.

START-UP AND OPERATION
Start-up and Checkout Procedures
LW417 Electronic Water Level Control Module
After the system has been properly installed and connected to both electrical and water supplies, it may then
be started.
When the power is activated, the solenoid-operated water
fill valve will open, filling the evaporating chamber. Filling
will continue until water reaches level A (figure 8-1), at
which time the fill valve will close. To ensure that a water
seal is created in the field-installed water seal, disconnect
probe plug and cable from probe rod assembly (located
on the top of the tank), allowing the fill valve to reenergize and overfill humidifier tank. This process will
take only seconds; probe plug and cable must then be
reconnected. A call for humidity will then energize the
heating element.
Mounting
Check mounting to see that the unit is level and securely
supported before filling with water. Refer to page 6 for
mounting hole locations.
Piping
Verify that all piping connections have been completed as
recommended and that water pressure is available. Refer
to page 5.
Electrical
Verify that all wiring connections have been made in
accordance with all governing codes and the enclosed
wiring diagram. Refer to page 5.
Caution: Only qualified personnel should
perform start-up procedure.
Heater Protection
Should the water line ever drop below level C, the heaters
are de-energized and remain OFF until the water line has
been restored to level C. This feature provides heater
protection in the event of a low-water condition.
Drain/Flush Feature
This control module contains an integral electronic timer
which tracks the humidifying time of the unit. When this
accumulated time reaches what has been set in the
timer, the drain/flush cycle is activated.
Upon activation, the following sequence occurs:
Figure 7-1: Electronic
Probe Control for
Maintaining Proper
Water Level (CRUVTM)

C
OM-211-2
A simple three-probe conductivity sensor cycles a
solenoid-operated water fill valve to maintain the proper

TM
Water Refill
During operation, when the water line drops below level B
the fill valve opens, and remains open until the water line
returns to level A (figure 7-1).
The CRUV humidifier is available with either the
standard LW 417 Electronic Water Level Control Module
or the optional VAPOR-LOGIC®3 microprocessor control
system. If your system is equipped with the
VAPOR-LOGIC3 system, see the VAPOR-LOGIC3
Operations and Maintenance Manual for more information.
Then continue reading this manual beginning at the
maintenance section on page 9.
1. The drain valve opens and begins to drain surface
water and minerals from the evaporating chamber.
2. When the height of the water drops below level "C",
this will allow the flush cycle to start.
3. Once the flush period starts the drain and fill valves
will remain open 1-3 minutes, flushing the chamber.
4. After 10 minute Drain/Flush feature, the drain valve
then closes, the chamber refills, and the fill valve
closes. The timer resets and the unit resumes normal
operation.
The electronic timer comes factory-set for drainage after
40 hours of operation. Alternate settings of 20 hours and
80 hours are available. See wiring diagram(s) attached to
unit for timer board location and instructions for changing
the timer setting.
7
START-UP AND OPERATION
Test Cycling the Drain/Flush System
The level control board incorporates a set of slide
switches which are marked 1 through 8. To test:
1. Place "SWI" slide switches 1,2 and 3 to off position.
2. Set the humidistat high enough so that unit will remain
“on call” for at least 15 minutes.
3. After about 2 minutes of operation, activation will
take place, causing the drain valve to open. The
water level will then drop to level C (see figure 7-1 on
page 7) and allow the fill valve to open. Both valves
will remain open for the remainder of Auto/Flush period.
4. The drain valve will then close, and the water level
will rise to level A (see figure 7-1 on page 7), causing
the fill valve to close.
5. Once the test cycle is complete, return slide switches
back to the desired operating mode. Failure to do so
will result in a drain/flush cycle every 2 minutes.
CRUVTM Make-up Water Piping
If the water pressure is above 60 psi (414 kPa) and/or
water hammer would be objectionable, a pressurereducing valve or shock arrester should be installed.
Even though the humidifier has an internal 1" (25 mm) air
gap, some local codes may require a vacuum breaker.
Important: Minimum water supply pressure is 25 psi (170
kPa). Maximum water supply pressure is 80 psi (552 kPa).
CRUV-DI Water Level Control System
The basic float valve water level system and float switch
circuit for heater protection in the event of a low-water
condition is common to all DI humidifiers and can be
found in the wiring diagram shipped with the unit.
CRUV-DI Start-Up Procedure
a) Adjust humidistat to "call" setting.
b) Open shut-off valve on water supply line. Unit should
begin filling with water through the fill valve.
c) Shortly before the fill valve shuts off, the float
operated heater cut-off switch will "make." When
this switch makes, the heating element contactor(s)
will be actuated. A time delay relay circuit prevents
contactor chatter due to bouncing of heater cut-off
float.
d) Check heater cut-off circuit.
1. Close manual valve on water supply.
2. Open drain valve and start draining unit.
3. When water level drops past switching level on
the heater cut-off float, the heating element
contactor(s) will drop out.
4. When step 3 has been satisfactorily completed,
close drain valve.
8
e) Check function of field-installed safety controls,
such as the fan proving switch. Contactor(s) should
drop out when the proving switch is "open."
f) Check heater draw by testing and recording voltage
and amperage in each phase. Readings should
match name plate readings; name plate is located on
the humidifier housing.
g) Inspect installations for steam or air leaks while
operating the humidifier. Any leaks should be
sealed.
Inspect after first three months of duty. The best way to
determine how often your particular system will need
maintenance is to remove the cover and inspect it after
its first three months of duty. Potable water carries a
variety of minerals and other materials in a mix that varies
from location to location. This variation in water quality,
combined with the hours of operation and duty cycle, will
determine your own unique maintenance schedule.
Water quality makes a difference
1. Light to moderately hard water (2 to 10 grains/gallon
or 34.2 to 171 mg/1 hardness)
• annual cleaning
2. High mineral content water (more than 10 grains/
gallon or 171 mg/1 hardness)
• cleaning frequency determined by use and water
quality
• periodic drain and flush cycles
3. DI/RO water (Model VMDI)
• no regular cleaning required (although regular
inspections are advised)
• no drain and flush cycles required
• the presence of chlorides in DI water will
eventually cause pitting and failure of the tank
and its components
4. To dramatically reduce mineral accumulation inside
the evaporating chamber, softening of the makeup water
recommended. (Solids like silica are not removed in the
the softening process.)
MAINTENANCE
CRUVTM Humidifier
(Non-DI humidifiers with either the LW 417 or
VAPOR-LOGIC®3 Control Systems)
Mineral Precipitate
As evaporation takes place in the CRUV humidifier, some
of the minerals dissolved in the water precipitate out and
float on the water surface. The minerals not removed by
the skimmer will settle to the bottom of the evaporating
chamber.
Cleaning the Evaporating Chamber
The heating element itself is self-cleaning. The mineral
buildup on the element flakes off after reaching a thickness of about 1/16" (2 mm), and settles to the bottom of
the chamber.
Long heater element life can be expected when the
operation of the humidifier is observed for a few weeks
following initial start-up. By observing the mineral build-up
rate, the frequency of both drain/flush use and manual
cleaning can be determined and adjustments made.
CAUTION: Before this mineral scale builds up on the
underside of the heating element, it must be removed.
Failure to do so may result in premature heater burnout.
The CRUV humidifier is designed for convenient cleaning
and maintenance.
To Inspect and Service:
1. Shut off all eletrical power to humidifier. Drain
evaporating chamber by manually opening DRAIN
valve. Do this by moving lever on valve to MANUAL
position and lock in place. If the tank is hot, cool it
down by opening the manual valve on the side of the
tank. The float valve will open allowing cool water to
run into the tank until it is cool enough to handle.
2. Unscrew probe-rod assembly. Scale should flake off
easily. Build-up on tips should be scraped off to
remove any mineral residue.
3. Remove the tank cover and wet vac minerals out of
tank (recommended).
4. To remove tank for cleaning, disconnect drain line
union, fill valve supply line, electrical connections to
drain, (disconnecting field wiring in conduit is NOT
recommended,) thermal trip, heaters, fill valve, and
probe. Disconnect steam hose from top of tank and
remove mounting bracket fasteners.
5. Remove evaporating chamber and clean.
6. Install the probe and probe plug assembly. Verify
that ground wire is connected.
7. Replace tank cover, making sure tank is sealed tight.
8. Reconnect drain line union, fill valve supply line,
electrical connections to drain, thermal trip, heaters,
fill valve, and probe. Connect steam hose to top of
tank.
9. Verify drain valve lever is in AUTO position.
10. The CRUV humidifier is again ready to humidify.
Off-Season Shutdown
1. Switch off power.
2. Turn off water supply to make-up valve.
3. Drain evaporating chamber and clean if necessary
(see steps 1 through 9 above).
4. Leave chamber dry, power OFF and water shut-off
valve closed until the next humidification season.
CRUV-DI Humidifier
To Service
1. Manually open drain valve.
2. Allow time for the evaporating chamber to cool. If the
tank is hot, cool it down by moving the valve lever
located on the back of the drain valve to the manual
open position – the fill valve will eventually open
allowing cool water to run through the tank until it is
cool enough to handle.
3. Shut off electrical power to unit.
4. Shut off water supply to make-up valve.
5. Make sure evaporating chamber is drained.
6. Unscrew four cover bolts and remove cover.
7. Check operation of float valve and low-water cut-out.
8. Inspect heating elements.
9. Inspect evaporating chamber and clean if necessary.
10. Inspect cover gasket, and replace if necessary.
11. Replace chamber cover.
12. Verify drain valve is in the closed position.
13. Open water supply valve and turn on electric power.
14. CRUV-DI humidifier is again ready to humidify.
15. If necessary, remove tank as follows:
Remove flexible vapor hose from tank. Close drain
valve. Disconnect unit from drain and supply water
lines. DO NOT DISCONNECT ANY OF THE
ELECTRICAL CONDUITS.
Off-Season Shutdown Procedure
1. Switch off electrical power to unit.
2. Check overall appearance of unit.
3. Shut off water supply to make-up valve.
4. Drain evaporating chamber by manually opening
drain valve.*
5. Visually check electrical components of subpanel.
6. Leave chamber dry, power off, and water shut-off
