Installation, Operation, & Maintenance Manual
SECTION II UNIT OPERATION
Basic Operation
Controlled humidification requires a very precise control
system. The 6000 utilizes a solid state control to monitor
performance and maintain humidity. The humidifier evaluates
the operation and alerts the operator to problem conditions
and prevents undesirable operation.
On initial start-up or a call for humidity, the humidifier will
attempt to fill to its full load amp rating. The unit will not
necessarily have a full cylinder of water. Water level depends
on the conductivity of the water. The more conductive the
water, the more current that can be passed through the same
volume of water.
If the water is not conductive enough to allow the unit
to reach full load amps (full capacity) on the initial fill, the
cylinder full light will indicate a full cylinder condition. The
unit will operate in this mode with repetitive fill and boil cycles
until the unit has concentrated enough minerals in the water
to reach the rated amp level.
Once full load amp (FLA) has been reached, the fill valve will
shut off. The unit will now compare the rate of change of amp
draw to a time cycle.
If the water in the cylinder is mineral laden and hence very
conductive, a drain cycle will be initiated.
Output
High Drain
Threshold
1.
After the drain cycle and/or the time cycle is completed, the
unit will refill and start the process over.
These cycles will repeat until:
•The call for humidity is satisfied.
•The cylinder is used up.
•A fault condition occurs.
On initial start-up, if the water is not conductive enough for
the unit to reach FLA, the water will stop filling when the
water reaches the cylinder full electrode. Once the unit has
entered a cylinder full condition it will operate with fill and
boil cycles only. By eliminating the drain cycle, the water
conductivity will be increased by producing pure steam and
leaving the minerals behind. The increased mineral levels
will raise the conductivity allowing the humidifier to draw
sufficient amperage to achieve FLA. Normal operation will
then commence.
As the electrodes in the cylinder are coated with minerals,
the water level will slowly increase to the cylinder full level.
Concentration of coating on electrodes will no longer allow
the unit to reach FLA. After a period of time, the unit will
display the red “Service” light indicating the need to change
the cylinder.

Engineering and Application
SECTION III INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
The HERRMIDIFIER 6000 Series Steam Humidifiers can be
applied in a variety of applications. The simplest application is
to utilize the model with the built-in blower package. The steam
generated by the unit is distributed into the conditioned space by
the built-in blower package (Figure 1).
Mounting
The cabinet is designed to safely contain the working components
of the HERRMIDIFIER 6000 series humidifier and dissipate heat
to protect the electronics. Locate humidifier in a manner to allow
routine inspection and any necessary maintenance. DO NOT
install the unit above false ceilings or around valuable property,
where a malfunction could cause damage. Correct positioning of
the humidifier is important to allow for proper operation and easy
maintenance. Minimum clearance around the cabinet should be
maintained as follows:

Plumbing
Steam Distribution
To make the necessary connections for water fill and drain, the
following steps are required: (refer to Figure 3 for locations)
1. Install external shutoff valve between the water supply and
the humidifier for ease in servicing the unit.
2. Connect water supply to the 1/4’ compression fitting on the
bottom of the cabinet.
The 6000 Series Steam Humidifier with the built-in blower pack
should be mounted a minimum of 18” from the ceiling. There
should also be 5 feet of horizontal clearance in front of the unit
to prevent steam from condensing on obstructions (See Figure
1). There is an adjustable louver to adjust the direction of the
steam plume.
CAUTION!
Do not use reverse osmosis or demineralized water
treatment without first consulting the factory. This
water may not be sufficiently conductive to allow proper
operation. Consult factory if water is outside the range of
allowable conductivities. Do not use hot water.
3. Connect the 3/4” tube from the accessory pack to the drain
reservoir. Cut the tube to the length necessary to reach the
drain.
4. Insert the other end of the tube into a minimum 6” vertical
length of the 1-1/4” minimum I.D. drain line. The balance of
the drain line should be 1” I.D. minimum with a minimum
1/8” per foot slope. (See Figure 3.)
WARNING!
Do not adjust this louver to extreme angles as it will
restrict the airflow causing condensation to form around
the steam distribution manifold.
WARNING!
Locate away from areas where people can walk into the
steam path.
Wiring
All field wiring should be routed up through the knockout in the
bottom panel or in the back of the unit.
WARNING!
7/8" KNOCKOUT
If the drain line is exposed, it is recommended that it be
insulated for safety. Do not use PVC drain line unless
“Drain Tempering” is enabled.

WARNING!
Do not install any controls inside the HERRMIDIFIER 6000
cabinet. Installations of any extraneous devices inside
the electrical compartment may cause erratic behavior of
the circuitry and will VOID the warranty.
The 6000 units with built-in blowers require no external control
wiring since the humidistat is built-in.
SECTION IV OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Start-up Instructions
1. Check that the humidifier is properly mounted and level.
2. Check that the water fill and drain are properly connected.
3. Check that the correct voltage and amperage service are
supplied.
4. With power off, double check all electrical connections and
plumbing connections to ensure that they did not loosen
during shipment.
5. With the “on-off-drain” switch in the “off” position, and the
control humidistat at its lowest setting, turn on the main
disconnect. The contactor should remain deenergized
and the power light should remain “off”. Place the “on-offdrain” switch in the “on” position and the power light should
illuminate.
6. Turn the control humidistat up to its highest setting. The
contactor should pull in.
7. After approximately a 5 second delay, the fill valve energizes
and water begins to fill the cylinder to the preset amp level
or cylinder full condition, depending on the incoming water
supply. When starting up the unit, it is best to put an amp
clamp on the power leg that passes through the toroid
transformer. Ensure that the humidifier fills to “cylinder full”
(approximately 1.5” from the top of the cylinder), or that
the amperage reaches the data plate maximum and the fill
valve de-energizes.
8. All units are equipped with a drain tempering feature which
mixes cold fill water with the hot drain water to protect
drain piping. Depending on your fill water pressure, some
adjustment of the fill metering valve may be necessary to
ensure drain water of less than 140°F. (See Figure 5.) To
deactivate, remove diode from socket CRI8 from circuit
board. (See Figure 7.)
9. Reset control humidistat to its desired settings. Typical
control humidistat settings are 30-40%.
NOTE:
The capacity of the humidifier can be adjusted between
50% and 100% of the maximum level by adjusting the
capacity adjustment potentiometer (labeled R39) on the
main circuit board. All units are set from the factory to
produce 4 lbs/hr. If the psychrometric conditions permit,
the 6000—2 may be increased to 8 lbs/hr by adjusting
R39 from 50% to 100% capacity. Refer to Figure 7.
CAUTION!
Inadequate airflow may allow humidity to collect in areas
causing condensation.

NOTE:
If upon initial start-up of this humidifier the cylinder is
slow in heating and/or the service light continues to come
on, drain the cylinder to 1/4 full. Turn off power at breaker, obtain some Alka-Seltzer tablets and crumble 1/2 of
one tablet (Alka-Seltzer) into the grey fill tee. Change the
middle blue dial on the left side of the circuit board, R18,
from 90% to 87%. Then turn the breaker on and run the
unit. If you have had to use these this step on a 240V unit
(6000-2,4), it is advisable that you order a GT-176-1 replacement cylinder rather than the standard replacement
cylinder in the future so this procedure will not need to
be repeated. Upon receipt of the GT-176-1 cylinder, adjust
the dial, R18, on the circuit board back to 90%.

Installation, Operation, & Maintenance Manual
Maintenance
To maintain output, the water level in the cylinder will slowly
move upwards, exposing new electrode to the water as the
electrodes become coated with minerals. Eventually, all of the
usable electrode surfaces will be coated and the cylinder will be
full of water. At this point, the output will begin to drop and the red
“service” light will come on. The unit will shutdown. This indicates
the need to change the cylinder, typically 500-2000 hours of
operation, depending on the quality of the fill water supply.
To replace the cylinder
1. Drain cylinder completely using the ‘on-off- drain” switch.
2. Turn off power to the unit at the external disconnect.
Disconnect electrode power wires (#38 & #39) and
cylinder full electrode wire (#29) from the cylinder. These
connections are 1/4” quick connects. (See Figure 6B, 6C,
& 6D.)
3. Disconnect 1” hose at top of cylinder.

cylinder. Be sure that “o” ring is in place on the cylinder fill/
drain port prior to installation. (See Figure 6A.) New o-ring
is included with each replacement cylinder.
Clean and check both the fill and drain valves while servicing
the unit.
Check the strainer. If it is dirty or restricting the waterreplace it.
Install cylinder in unit by pushing downward with a slight
twisting motion, while ensuring proper orientation of cylinder
within cabinet.
Reconnect electrode power wires (#38 & #39) and cylinder
full electrode, wire (#29). Make sure that all electrical
connections are securely tightened. (See Figures 6B, 6C,
& 6D.)
Follow cold start-up instructions on page 8. Monitor amp
draw for several cycles. .
Extended Shutdown
Always drain cylinder completely if unit will be off for an extended
period of time. This will preserve the life of the cylinder.

Probable Cause
Reason - Correction
Overcurrent
The alarm condition occurs when an
overcurrent situation (>138% of rated
current) has occurred and the humidifier
has shut down to prevent any damage.
This alarm indicates that there has been
a significant reduction in resistance between the main legs of the supply power
and the humidifier has been shut down to
prevent damage and should be serviced
before it is restarted. Overcurrent LED
CR 17 (Figure 7) is illuminated.

Restricted or blocked drain.
Clean and inspect drain system.
Restricted fill system
Clean and inspect the fill system. Check
for restriction or loss of supply pressure.
Check amp draw to unit during start-up.
If amp draw greatly exceeds rated amp
draw, the drain threshold pot, labeled
“% adj.” (R18), must be increased 2% to
increase the frequency and duration of
drains to reduce the conductivity inside
the cylinder.
Manually drain the unit and restart.
End of Cylinder
This alarm condition occurs if the humidifier is unable to reach full output over a 6
hour timeframe. It is constantly switching
between “fill” and “cylinder full” modes.
This alarm indicates a need to change
the cylinder, that the water supply is low
in conductivity, or that a foaming condition exists:
End of cylinder life – Cylinder life is
typically between 500 and 2000 hours,
depending on incoming water supply.
For emergency use, you may restart the
humidifier with the capacity setpoint,
R39, at a lower level to allow operation
until a replacement steam cylinder can
be obtained. To clear the fault, turn the
main disconnect to the unit “off” and then
back “on”.
If incoming water supply is less than 100
micromho, the unit may not be able to
pass the rated current through the water.
See – NON-FAULT ACTIVATED PROBLEMS GUIDE – “Unit fills to the cylinder
full condition and remains cold”
Foaming condition exists.
Flush and fill the steam cylinder several
times and restart. If it persists, you must
filter or treat the water to remove the
foaming agent. See circuit board settings
on previous page if supply water is softened. See NON – FAULT ACTIVATED

Non-Fault Activated Problems:
Problem / Symptom
Reason - Correction
24 VAC circuit breaker trips as
soon as power switch is turned
“on”.
Check the wiring at the 24 VAC breaker for a short or loose connection.
Disconnect the contactor coil from the circuit and repeat. If 24 volt breaker doesn’t blow,
replace the contactor.
Replace the main circuit board.
24 VAC circuit breaker trips after
the unit is turned on for about 15
seconds.
Disconnect fill valve from electrical circuit. If circuit breaker doesn’t trip, replace the fill
valve.
Replace the main circuit board
24 VAC Circuit breaker trips when- Disconnect drain valve from electrical circuit. If circuit breaker doesn’t trip, replace the drain
ever the drain valve activates
valve.
Remove the drain valve and ensure that it is clean and free of any obstructing mineral
deposits.
Replace the main circuit board.
Humidifier turned on but will not
operate. Power lamp is “off”.
Check power supply.
Check circuit breaker.
Check connector J1 on the circuit board and ensure that it is plugged into the circuit board
properly and that no wires are loose.
Ensure that there is 24 VAC between pole #9 and #11 connector J1. If not, check wiring.
Check door interlock.
Unit turned “on”. Contactor pulled
in, but no water is entering the
cylinder.
Check external shutoff valves and open if closed.
Check strainer and fill valve for clogs. Turn adjusting screw (Figure 5, page 8).
Check fill valve coil to determine if it is receiving 24 VAC. If so, replace the valve.
Check for break in wiring.
Excessive arcing in cylinder
Check drain valve and ensure that when it activates it drains freely. Clean if necessary.
Replace valve if defective.
Check water supply. If it is softened, increase the drain threshold pot, “% adj.” (R18), up to
92% at 3.68VDC. (See Figure 7, page 11.)
Use high conductivity settings if water supply is very hard, >750 micromho.
Unit filling slower or at the same rate as the water is boiling, causing over concentration and
foaming. Check restriction in fill line. Adjust the metering fill valve to allow greater flow of
water. (See Figure 5.)
Have water analyzed. If iron content is greater than .1 mg/liter, a filter will have to be used.
Consult factory with water analysis
Unit fills to the cylinder full condition and remains cold.
Check between Test Point #3 and ground with a multimeter set on VDC scale. Confirm the
circuit board is seeing low current flow (<2.8 VDC). Proceed to next step.
If on initial fill, unit reaches less than 70% of rated capacity (2.8 VDC on Test Point #3),
adjust the drain threshold pot, “% adj.” (R18), down 2-3%. Manually drain the unit down
completely and add ½ Alka Seltzer tablet via the fill tee(GT-120). Restart the unit while
monitoring the amp draw. Fill unit ¼ full and turn “off” for several minutes to allow tablets to
dissolve. Restart unit. If amperage rises rapidly, it may be necessary to dilute the water. If
amperage rises slowly, add another Alka-Seltzer tablet.
Check that drain valve is sealing properly.
Check the water conductivity and consult the factory.
Unit turned on and cycles for a
short period of time. Then it stops
in the middle of a fill cycle and
won’t reset until boiling stops.
Herrtronic® Model 6000
Check cylinder fill interface connections.
Check cylinder connections. (See Figures 6A-6D, page 10.)
Check items in next troubleshooting tip concerning foaming.
Check amperage between cylinder full electrode and cylinder full interface terminal #1. If it
is greater than 7.0 mA AC, take a fill water sample and consult the factory.

Problem/Symptom
Reason - Correction
Water “foaming” inside the cylinder.
Check drain valve and ensure that water drains freely. If necessary, clean or replace valve if
defective.
Check water supply. If it is commercially softened, either increase the drain threshold (R18)
to 92% or reconnect the unit to raw water. Drain and restart the unit. If the unit is connected to a hot water line, reconnect to the cold water line. (3.68VDC)
If steam line is hard copper, drain cylinder and test unit operation disconnected from steam
line to ensure flux from solder joints is not causing foaming.
Observe the fill tee(GT-120). If water is going down the overflow and the water level is low:
Check to ensure that static pressure in the duct is not forcing water down the overflow
instead of allowing water to enter the cylinder.
Adjust the fill metering valve to regulate the water flow to the cylinder. (Figure 5.)
Unit filling slower or at the same rate as it is boiling off, causing over concentration and
foaming. Fill rate must be increased. Open metering valve.
If the fill valve is already fully open, get a water analysis and consult the factory.
Cylinder fills and overflows
Check cylinder wiring. (See Figures 6A-6D, page 10.)
Check wiring of cylinder full interface.
If more than 1.9 mA AC is passing between the cylinder full electrode and interface terminal #1, and when placing multimeter between terminal #3 and ground yields approximately
negative 11 VDC, replace the interface.
Replace the circuit board.
Consult the factory after obtaining a water analysis
Unit turned on, fills to full amp
draw, stops filling, and after a
delay, the circuit breaker trips and
the service light comes on.
Use the “On-Off Drain” switch to drain the cylinder. Turn the capacity adjustment pot(R39)
on the main circuit board to 80% and restart the humidifier. (3.2VDC)
Unit cycle “on” and “off” rapidly
Check location and setting of high limit humidistat
Cabinet leaks
Check for loose connections
Check the drain valve and clean or replace if necessary.
If the drain valve doesn’t come on before the service light illuminates, replace the main
circuit board.
Fill tube out of fill tee
Steam cylinder out of drain cup
Cabinet drain backing up, kink in drain line
