The NORTEC MES Series electrode humidifier is
the culmination of many years of research and
development in the electrode humidifier industry. This
unit has been built by skilled craftspeople and
thoroughly tested before shipment and should, if the
following instructions are observed, provide many
years of trouble-free operation.
DRAIN CANAL
(OPEN TO ATMOSPHERE)
An electronic timer uses the rate of amp fall to
determine the water level. The objective is to
concentrate current-carrying minerals in the cylinder
so that a smaller volume of water is required to
produce the rated steam output.
FOR HUMIDIFIERS INSTALLED IN THE CITY
OF LOS ANGELES: A city of Los Angeles approved
spring-loaded double ball CHECK VALVE should be
supplied and installed by the contractor on each of the
potable water inlets to each humidifier.
This achieves the longest life for the disposable
cylinder because of minimal electrode coverage and
use of less energy because the high concentration
allows a minimal drain rate.
Recommended valve manufacturer: Watts
Regulator (phone 508-688-1811), model #7, size 3/8”
NPT inlet and outlet.
When 80% F.L.A. is reached, the fill valve will
open refilling cylinder to 100% F.L.A. On occasion,
the drain valve will also come on if water level is too
low, indicating too high a concentration and the
requirement for a dilution of the water in the cylinder.
Each drain line from these humidifiers shall be
routed, without dips or sags, to terminate above the
flood level rim of a City of Los Angeles approved
indirect waste receptor.
No combustible materials shall be placed in the
duct and/or the air plenum.
If the water reaches top of cylinder before 100%
F.L.A., the fill valve shuts off via the sensor and
fill-boil-fill-boil cycle continues, cycling off the red high
water sensor light until the concentration becomes
high enough to reach 100% F.L.A. The above
described control process will then take over.
PRINCIPAL OF OPERATION
When the humidistat calls, the cylinder fills to
100% of the Full Load Amperage (F.L.A.) or to the top
of the cylinder, whichever comes first. See Figure #1.
If it reaches 100% F.L.A. the water heats and boils
away to a level giving 80% F.L.A.
-1-
are designed for water pressure from 30 to 80
psi and are protected by the built-in strainer.
WATER SUPPLY AND PLUMBING
1. The fill valve is sized for an extended water
pressure range of 30 to 80 psi.
4. For inlet water pressure outside this range, the
factory should be contacted. (See Water
Supply and Plumbing section of this manual.)
2. For cases below 30 psi add a pressure boost
pump, notify the factory and a fill valve with an
oversized orifice will be supplied.
START-UP AND OPERATION
3. For cases above 80 psi, install a pressure
reducing valve in the water feed line to the
unit.
· Ambient temperature location for humidifier:
41ºF - 104ºF (5ºC - 40ºC).
· Relative humidity location for humidifiers:
5% rh - 80% rh.
4. With extremely dirty or muddy water sources,
e.g., some well sources, ensure proper
filtration by adding an external filter to the
water line entering the unit. (Consult factory
for accessories such as filters.)
Check to see that the unit is securely mounted on
a level surface with the proper drain and water supply.
Check for correct voltage with appropriately sized
service. Check that the steam distributor, steam
supply hose, and condensate line are correctly
installed and routed back to the unit. Ensure that the
external control humidistat is located in an area to
properly sense the relative humidity to be maintained
by the humidifier, and that the interconnecting low
voltage wires between the humidistat and the unit’s
control terminal strip are in accordance with the wiring
diagram.
5. DO NOT use completely demineralized water
with this unit as it is the minerals that allow the
electrode principle to work.
6. DO NOT use a hot water source as it will
cause deposits that will eventually block the fill
valve orifice.

Turn on the main disconnect in the primary service
feeding the unit and check that unit has power at the
primary terminal block.
WATER CONNECTION
1. A copper compression olive type coupling for
1/4" O.D. soft copper tubing is provided with
unit and requires no soldering for the water
connection to the unit. See Figure #2.
PUSH THE AUTO ON/OFF/DRAIN SWITCH TO
“ON”.
Water will start to enter the cylinder through its
bottom port and rise in the cylinder to a point
determined by the solid-state control circuitry.
2. An isolating valve should ALWAYS be placed
in the feed water line allowing service of the fill
valve.
It is not unusual upon initial start-up for the
water to fill the cylinder and cycle on the red high
water sensor light.
3. Each unit is fitted with a fill solenoid valve
located on the base drain pan. Flow orifices
-2-
Figure #4
MES Adjustable Pot
The red light simply acts as a safety to shut off the
fill valve and prevent over-filling. With the red light on,
the water in the cylinder will continue to heat and, after
a few minutes, start to boil. After the boiling action of
the water has lowered the water level below the
sensor at the top of the cylinder, the red light will go
out and the fill solenoid will again open until the
cylinder is again full.
This cycling of the red light and fill valve will
continue until the unit’s full output capacity is reached
after which the water level will automatically lower
itself in the cylinder. (The increased concentration
allows for lower electrode coverage while maintaining
the same output.) When a stabilized condition is
reached the water will be boiling close to the cylinder
seam level. The solid state circuitry will maintain the
proper concentration in the cylinder by introducing
short drains only when necessary.
CYLINDER REPLACEMENT
After an extended period of operation, in
accordance with life expectancy information, the
cylinder is completely used as indicated by the red
high water sensor light illuminated on the cabinet.
When this condition is reached, a new replacement
cylinder is to be installed.
If the cylinder is manually drained the above
process will repeat itself.
Low Water Conductivity
NOTE: Red light may come on during initial
start-up but does not mean cylinder replacement. See
Start Up and Operation section of this manual.
Should normalization of the unit be required
immediately after start-up, the installer may speed up
the process by artificially increasing water conductivity.
During a fillcycle, the installer should dissolve half a
teaspoon of table salt (no more) in a cup of water and
add it to the cylinder by means of the fill cup attached
to the plumbing section.
Figure #5
Cylinder Removal
Open the plumbing compartment and add salt
solution through cylinder outlet. Excessive amounts of
salt will result in erratic operation of the unit; however,
normalization of the unit will occur automatically
through the solid-state control sequence.
CAPACITY ADJUSTMENT
The MES Series of humidifiers come with
adjustable capacity (AC) PC boards. These boards
have a pot to adjust the output from 20 to 100%. See
Figures # 3 and 4.

WHEN TO REPLACE THE STEAM CYLINDER
The steam cylinder is disposable and must be
replaced at the end of cylinder life. Cylinder life is
-3-
dependent on water supply conditions and humidifier
usage. Failure to replace the cylinder at the end of
cylinder life may result in unit damage. Walter Meier
(NORTEC) is not responsible for any damages
resulting from, or attributable to, the failure to replace a
used cylinder (see Manufacturer’s Warranty).
7. The cylinder is now ready to be lifted out of
the unit.
INSTALLING THE NEW CYLINDER
1. The reverse procedure should be followed to
install a new cylinder. The main disconnect is
to be left open until the cylinder is completely
installed and reconnected.
REMOVING THE OLD CYLINDER
n
See Figure # 5.
2. Ensure that the cylinder mounting stubs are
seated properly in the allotted side mounting
slots within the unit.
1. Turn off the water supply to unit.
2. The old cylinder must be drained completely
before removing. This is done by pushing the
auto on/off/drain switch to the “drain” position.
3. The white sensor plug on all units is for the
sensor pin, which always goes on the single
pin offset from the others. See Figure # 6.
3. When completely drained, push the auto
on/off/drain switch to the “off” position.
4. Ensure that cylinder plugs are very snug on
the pins. Replace any loose fitting plugs as
these may result in hazardous operation.
4. Open the main disconnect during the entire
cylinder change operation.
MAINTENANCE
5. The power wires to the cylinder are attached
by cylinder plugs to the electrode pins on top of
the cylinder. Pull these plugs vertically off the
pins. See Figure # 5.
WARNING! The plumbing and electrical
compartments contain high voltage components and
wiring. The access cover is attached with screws.
Access should be limited to authorized personnel
only.
6. Using slot screwdriver, loosen the steam hose
clamp(s) and pull steam hose off vertically.
EXTENDED SHUTDOWN
Figure #6
Plugs
White
Sensor Plug
Before disconnecting power to the humidifier for a
period of extended shutdown, ALWAYS DRAIN the
cylinder first. Otherwise, the electrodes are subject to
harmful corrosion which drastically shortens the
cylinder life. Do NOT leave the switch in the DRAIN
position indefinitely as the drain coil could burn out.
Leave the switch in the OFF position and “open” the
main external fused disconnect to stop power to the
humidifier. Close the shut off valve in the water
supply line feeding the humidifier.

SHORT CYCLING: When the ‘on time’ of the
humidifier is less than ten minutes upon a call for
humidity. To correct short cycling, all humidifiers have
a capacity adjustment which allows the output of the
humidifier to be reduced to as low as 20% of rated
output, thus extending the ‘on time’ required to
maintain output.
Cylinder Pin
-4-
FOAMING: The phenomenon which can occur in
water when impurities, already in the water reach an
excess concentration as a result of boiling away pure
water and the continued boiling action agitating the
contained water. The humidifier electronics are
designed to prevent this occurrence although in
extreme cases, water will foam with little concentration
making it necessary to have the drain time of the
water, contained in the cylinder, increased. Foaming
is normally caused by short cycling, a restricted drain,
or back pressure. The foam, generated in these
instances, is conductive and may lead to false full
cylinder indication if the level of the foam approaches
the top of the cylinder.
3. The low voltage 3 amp fuse located in the
control box could be blown.
4. The contactor holding coil could be open or
shorted.
5. The switch could be defective.
Recheck that the “auto on/off/drain” switch is still
at “on”. If it is, then shut off the main disconnect and
check fuses or breaker of the main disconnect. If they
are serviceable, turn power back on.
To test for a defective “auto on/off/drain” switch,
connect a wire from the fuse directly to terminal 6 on
the external controls strip. If the contactor activates,
the “on” side of the switch is defective. If the contactor
does not activate, the PC board could be defective.
BACK PRESSURE: The restriction of steam flow
caused by long steam runs, improperly sloped steam
lines, elbows changing the direction of steam flow from
horizontal to vertical without a drain leg, any plumbing
detail allowing the accumulation of condensate,
undersized steam line, improper steam distributor,
downward air flow onto the distributor causing excess
static pressure at the steam outlets, or high static
pressure ducts (not probable). To overcome excess
static pressure in the duct, a fill cup extension kit
should be used. In down flow applications, a down
flow distributor should be used, but in some cases the
fill cup extension will also be required.
If the 3 amp control fuse blows when the wire from
the fuse touches terminal 6 on the external controls
strip, contactor holding coil could be shorted. Replace
contactor if necessary.
After the necessary components have been
replaced and the contactor pulls in, there is line
voltage to the cylinder and the control sequence can
begin.
RESET UNIT (HUMIDIFIER): To reset the
humidifier, the auto on/off/drain switch at the front of
the humidifier should be switch to the “Off” position for
a minimum of five seconds and then switched back to
the “On” position.
Approximately 30 seconds after the contactor pulls
in, the fill valve coil should energize. There is also a
visible fill relay on the printed circuit board. It is the
one located farthest from the C.T. core. The points on
this relay must be touching in order for the fill valve coil
to be energized.
MONITORED LEG: Refers to the primary wire to
the cylinder which loops through the current sensing
devise of the main PCB. This wire is terminated at the
red cylinder plug at the cylinder.
If the points will not touch after the built-in time
delay, then the sensor input may be interfering. To
confirm, remove the black and red sensor wires from
the terminals 6 and 10 on the PC board. Wait 30
seconds and if the fill relay points not touch, then
sensor should be replaced. If they do not touch, then
the basic PC board could be faulty. To confirm,
disconnect the red wire from terminal 18 and touch it
to terminal 14. If the fill valve coil activates then the
basic PC board should be replaced. If it still does not
activate then the fill valve coil should be replaced.
STARTING POINT
Auto On/Off/Drain switch in “On” position - unit
will not fill:
When the on/off control circuit is made and the
“auto on/off/drain” switch is pushed to “on”, the 24 volt
holding coil of the primary contactor should energize.
The resulting magnetic pull closes the high voltage
contacts with a distinct and audible “clunk”. If the
contactor will not make, then inspect the following
while referring to the wiring diagram:
Having changed the necessary components, water
starts filling the cylinder and begins to submerge the
electrodes. Because of the high voltage across the
electrodes, the water can now conduct electricity.
Red “Change Cylinder” light on - Water at top of
cylinder:
1. Check for 24 Vac across terminals 18 and 26
on PC board.
This is a common occurrence on start-up. See
Start-Up and Operation section of this manual.
2. Jumper the humidistat on external control
terminal strip. If contactor operates, then
control system is at fault.
-5-
If the cylinder is old, it indicates end of cylinder life.
Time to replace the cylinder. See “When To Replace
The Steam Cylinder” section of this manual.
Red “Change Cylinder” light on - Water NOT at top
of cylinder:
Water foaming to top of cylinder causing false full
cylinder indication. This also may be accompanied by
arcing (flashing) inside cylinder. Refer to “Terms
Used” regarding foaming.
Water remains at high level and won’t concentrate:
This is normal on cold start-up and can be
accelerated by adding maximum 1/2 tsp. of dissolved
salt to the cylinder (through the plastic fill cup) on fill
cycle. See “Low Water Conductivity” section of this
manual.
If unit has been operating extensively, observe for
normal fill-boil-fill-boil cycle; no drain should be
occurring. If drain occuring, check for leaking drain
valve or back pressure.
Water beyond top of cylinder up into spout:
If the red light is not on and fill is still activated,
jumper across the connection of sensor on basic PC
board. If fill remains on when connection is jumped,
then basic PC board is faulty. If fill shuts off, then
verify primary voltage to cylinder (contactor
energized). If primary voltage is present, the high
water sensor PCB is defective.
Unit drains continually:
May be caused by foaming and/or back pressure,
or leaking drain valve.
Cylinder is almost empty, check for magnetic pull
on drain solenoid indicating miswiring. If no pull, drain
actuator is blocked open; remove, disassemble and
clean.
If drain is occurring through activated drain valve,
valve is miswired or electronics are faulty - consult
factory.
If drain is occurring through the overflow on the fill
cup, this is due to abnormal restriction on the steam
line and back pressure forces water out of the cylinder;
therefore, water cannot concentrate and level must
stay high; review installation of steam line to ensure no
blockages or excessive static pressure in air system.
