EMC Mistifyer

Anybody use  a EMC Mistifyer ( cold water spray ) instead of a steam line to regulate the EMC in your kilns?

Dean,

I have no experience with the Mistifyer.  I built a spray system for the 2500 bf OSU dry kiln and it worked great for conditioning.  The kiln could reach narrow wet-bulb depressions, even with dry lumber in the kiln.

I have heard that water sprays work well, but need regular maintenance.  They are more common in the hardwood industry where conditioning is vital to the product.

Yes, I dry a lot of hard maple and try to keep it as white as possible. I try to keep the temp low but during  conditioning the temp rises higher than I want. Maybe someone will chime in soon.
