Isothermal humidifiers use a variety of methods to heat the water to create steam, and require an energy source. Immersed electrode humidifiers are simple and reliable, and create an electric current that heats the water to produce steam. For industrial applications or other heavy duty uses that require large amounts of steam, gas-fired humidifers can be used.
An adiabatic humidifier does not require heat to create steam, but uses one of a variety of methods to atomise the water, which turns to vapour when it is sprayed into the atmosphere. Compressed air atomisers use a compressor to create the water vapour. Centrifugal humidifiers spin the water to transform it into droplets, while ultrasonic humidifiers vibrate at a high frequency to generate the mist.
