CONSENSE CONDENSATION CONTROL

 

What Is CONSENSOR?
 
All condensation sensors on the market except the patented CONSENSOR, are actually humidistats set to 80% to 90% RH (Relative Humidity).  This means that when the RH in the vicinity of the sensor reaches that  preset level, a "condensation" signal is sent to a controlling computer, valve solenoid, etc .   Actually, condensation is not occurring at this point, and it may never actually occur at all.   The "condensation" signal is very premature.   In fluid cooling applications - Chilled beam HVAC systems for example, coolant flow will be needlessly stopped - often when it's needed most.The more elaborate dew point sensors are similarly dependant on the immediate RH.
 
The CONSENSOR functions very differently.  It incorporates a very sensitive condensate sensing area that is intimately coupled thermally to your surface of interest - a pipe for example.  So when the pipe surface "sweats", the sensing area also "sweats" simultaneously.  The integrated microprocessor circuit is programmed to signal a condensation condition when a microscopic deposit of condensate appears on the sensing area ... the same instant it appears on your pipe surface ... long before there is any threat of the dreaded condensation  "rain" or drip.

There are those applications in which condensation can not be controlled, but it needs to be monitored. Critical electronic / electrical circuits can be shut down to avoid malfunction or damage from condensate short circuits. Farmers can monitor dew occurances and duration.

THE FIRST EVER TO BE BASED ON A TRUE CONDENSATION SENSOR

(Not a humidity sensor being sold as a "condensation sensor")

 

Virtually all other condensation sensors on the market are actually  HUMIDISTATS set to signal a coolant shut down when the adjacent Relative Humidity reaches 80% to 90% RH. The CONSENSOR has become the standard of the HVAC industry.CONSENSORs incorporate the best "FAIL SAFE" design practices.

Note: Normally Open contacts are also available on special order, but these lack an inherent element of "fail safe" operation. Add "-N/O" to the model designator when ordering.

The CONSENSOR is a patented unique, well proven condensation sensor that instantly reacts to the actual initial onset of the condensation process.  This response usually occurs before there is any perceptible trace of condensate .well before there is any risk of "rain" or drip.    Virtually all other so-called "condensation sensors" are actually humidistats typically set to 80% to 90% RH (Relative Humidity).  When the adjacent  RH reaches the preset level, they signal a condensation condition well before it actually occurs.  Actually, condensation might never occur.   As a result, coolant flow is often stopped needlessly- often when it's needed most.  The more elaborate dew point based condensation sensors are similarly predicated on the immediate RH and share these same issues.

The CONSENSOR is based on an entirely different principle.  It includes an extremely responsive condensate sensing area that is intimately coupled thermally to your surface of interest - a pipe for example.  Both share the same atmosphere.  Consequently, when the pipe "sweats", that sensing area simultaneously "sweats".  The CONSENSOR's integrated microprocessor is programmed to initiate a condensation signal when a microscopic deposit of condensate appears on that sensing area ... as demonstrated in the YOUTUBE video.

With a CONSENSOR based condensation control system, the coolant flow can safely continue at maximum capacity right to the brink of the condensation occurrence without risk of condensation "rain" or drip. This has been proven in hundreds of chilled beam HVAC installations, in water cooled power supplies, in large industrial welders, etc. and in nuclear atomic accelerators.  CONSENSORs were used in Raytheon's testing of the MARS ROVER cameras.   Recovery time depends on the RH in its vacinity and the frequency and amount of condensate that was experienced.
