Choose from any of our high-quality series or accessories to take the first step towards optimal air quality and effortless humidity and cooling control for your property’s unique space. We are proud to provide innovative, industry-leading and cost-conscious technologies to efficiently improve the air quality for indoor and outdoor spaces.
Nortec EL Series electrode steam humidifiers offer complete application flexibility to systems engineers, contractors and customers needing a commercial / industrial humidifier. They can be integrated into central Heating/Ventilating/Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems or placed in specified locations for individual room control. Models are available to serve small or large areas with outputs of 5 – 200 lbs/hr.
Gas Fired Steam
Nortec GS Series gas-fired steam humidifiers are the first fully condensing, high-efficiency systems on the market. Nortec has been manufacturing gas-fired humidifiers for almost two decades and is continuously striving to improve on past, tried and true designs. The newest GS series keeps all of Nortec’s long standing objectives and customer values in mind — showcased in our most efficient package yet!
Humidifiers designed to deliver reliable humidity from facility steam boilers. The Nortec LS Series provides accurate, cost effective humidification directly utilizing steam from your central facility boiler. Constructed from quality 304 stainless steel, the LS Series humidifiers are designed for long operating life with minimal maintenance.
The AM-Series short absorption manifold, distributes clean steam, precisely controlled, uniformly into the air stream, and void of any condensate spray. Nortec’s steam absorption system is for use in air handling units and duct systems where short steam absorption distance is critical. Steam distribution takes place via distributor tubes with integrated nozzles which extend into the center of the distribution tube ensuring only condensate-free steam is released.
Nozzles / Evaporative
The Nortec ME humidifier provides low energy humidity control and evaporative cooling to an air handling unit or duct. A single unit can provide up to 2204 lbs/hr (1,000kg/hr) of humidification and 630kW of evaporative cooling to an air stream while operating on less than 0.3kW of electricity. As well as being economic to run the Nortec ME is also easy to operate with an advanced touch screen control panel, simple to maintain with industry leading service features and employs the latest in hygiene technology.
Its innovative and patented features position it firmly as the World’s leading evaporative humidifier.
Humidification for Data Centers
Humidifiers are required in data centers to prevent electrostatic discharge damaging servers and offer high capacity, low cost evaporative cooling.
For existing data centers ASHRAE recommends a humidity level of 41.9°F (5.5°C) dew point to 60%RH and an allowable range of between 20-80%RH. In most parts of the world, at some time in the year, humidification will be needed to meet these internal conditions.
Humidifiers are often used alongside free air cooling systems to either boost the cooling capacity with an evaporative cooling effect or provide high load, low cost humidification to the large volume of air flowing through the data centre’s ventilation system.
In temperate climates, where free air cooling alone cannot meet the required internal conditions all year round, adiabatic humidifiers will provide additional cooling on hot days. This increases the operating window of the ventilation system without having to rely on traditional DX chillers.
In colder locations, such as those where many new build data centers are being located, adiabatic humidifiers can be used to economically add huge volumes of moisture to the incoming air. Heat from the data halls is used to warm the incoming air prior to humidification increasing the moisture content and reducing the temperature to the necessary supply condition.
With Nortec humidifiers, you can select a system operating with electrode steam, subsonic air nozzles, high pressure nozzles, evaporative, steam injection, steam exchange, or gas-fired technology. Our humidifiers are used in data centers, hospitals, hot yoga studios, libraries, manufacturing facilities, museums, printing plants, and schools, just to name a few places. The Nortec team marries the best engineers and creative marketers, alongside detailed production staff and a dedicated sales team; not to mention an army of in-house humidification experts. We draw upon our extensive experience to develop an ever growing range of products manufactured to our stringent ISO 9001:2000 certified quality standards that will provide our customers with maximum reliability, minimum maintenance and a choice of energy sources.
