A consender converts gas to liquid, the the higher the temperature in the condenser the greater the vapor pressure of the working fluid. The temperature in the condenser will bear some relation to the cooling water temperature, but the full picture depends on the thermal resistance from the gas to the cooling water,the flow rate of the gas and cooling water,...

The problem is using Kanthal ( iron base ) instead of nichrome family ( nickel base). Both have high chrome with some aluminum for oxidation resistance. Kanthal becomes brittle quickly and is weak above 2000 F. It cannot be moved after it has been heated ; too brittle. Kanthal is also attacked by silica and iron in the refractory. I am using an antique text ;...

Did you ever get a real answer to your question? I have been considering this question for years and I have no real answer. Many responses I see show me that people are a bit confused as to what you are trying to do. In a simplistic explanation you are trying to move thermal energy from a 70 degree environment into a say 75 degree environment which is very ...

See the chart in "Algorithm for your setup" (above). If you circulate air through a chilling set-up, you will condense excess moisture out of the air and reintroduce it to your environment drier. If your air is 25C and 50%RH then there is ~10g of water per KG of dry air inside. Draw the air into your chiller, lower the air temp. Chill the ...

From what I understand you have temperature control since you have a heater in the system. How you go about it, for humidity control can vary significantly depending on the system implementation Suggested Humidity control through cooling heating If you want to actually control the humidity the way a lot of HVAC units do is to: first cool the air you are ...

Adding airflow will almost always decrease the humidity. If you pull in air at 70%rh/65f and inside the greenhouse this air is warmed to 85f, the effective RH of that air is now only 16%, since the water capacity of the air increases massively with temperature. That changes your problem a bit. Basically you will have to balance how dry you want it in the ...
