The Halley IV Antarctic research station was developed for the British Antarctic Survey and is characterized by its innovative architectural form. The idea for the research station emerged in an international architecture competition for a modular laboratory. A special feature of the station is that it can rise above its hostile environment at any time by using its hydraulic stilts to lift itself above the snow level.
Over-sized skis are also attached to these hydraulic devices, so that the system can react rapidly to cracks and changes in the ice. The air and the climate inside the rooms are of particular importance with regard to the health of the researchers. Condair Mk5 steam humidifiers ensure sufficient humidity in the station in spite of the dry Antarctic air.
The Condair RS steam humidifiers boast patented limescale management which prevents permanent deposition of limescale on heater rods. Limestone crusts are successively detached and removed from the steam cylinder into the limescale collection vessel. Limestone management ensures extremely short waiting times and a long life.
The innovative control system fitted with a touch display ensures outstanding transparency of function and precise steam delivery. The units are the result of decades of experience and they define the state of the art in modern steam humidification.

Flexible choice of water
A resistance heating system works independently of the conductivity of the humidifying water.
For this reason, Condair RS steam humidifiers are suitable for use both with demineralized water and drinking water.
When using demineralized water, maintenance is reduced to periodic function checks.
If steam humidifiers are to be operated with drinking water, then Condair RS steam humidifiers should always be your first choice, because the patented limescale management system ensures a high degree of reliability even when the water contains limestone.
A technical innovation that solves the limescale problem
Patented limescale management removes the separated minerals from the steam cylinder during operation and automatically conveys them into the designated limescale collecting vessel.
Limescale deposits are thus continuously removed from the steam cylinder.
The pieces of limescale are collected in an external limescale collecting vessel and can easily be emptied from there. Maintenance work is significantly reduced and operational reliability is maximized. The patented limescale management system ensures reduced maintenance times and long life of RS steam humidifiers.
Touch Controller for precise control
The Condair Touch Controller allows viewing of all unit and process data.
Operating data can be called up in real time, and there is a comprehensive data history. The electronic control system allows the steam output to be varied continuously between 0 and 100%; this means accurate control and management of the steam delivery rate.
The RS series steam humidifier includes an interface for connection to current BMS systems (Modbus and BACnet) as standard.
