Wet/dry bulb location KD150
« on: November 28, 2018, 07:38:01 PM »
Hi, just finishing up my kiln and Im confused about where the wet/dry bulb sensors go. Woodmizers manual says 4 off the floor but it also says near the fan for good air flow. Spoke with two different guys at Nyle, one said below the baffle next to the compressor, the other said above the baffle, beyond the fans. My compressor is 35 off the floor with the fans at about 70. What did I miss?

On my DH kiln.  I have it set 3' to the right of the unit and half way up (35" from the base).  That should do the trick.

The best is a location that measures the air just before it enters the load. One way to do this is to cut a small hole in the fan baffles and measure this short circuit air.
