ABSTRACT
Focuses on the approaches that should be taken to successfully operate a steam-humidification system. Factors that need to be considered in designing and operating a humidification system; Main control diagnostic issues that signal the incompatibility and improper placement of components; Strategy that can be used to avoid having condensate exit through steam orifices.
