Avfuktning av mognadsskåp, igen

Jag fick en mycket bra ide från en charkfrände, avfuktning med en kylväska. Se bilder och Lars Stjernestam, Enköping text:

Men en grej som jag kommit på är att man kan avfukta med ett peltierelement istället.
Har fällt in locket från en kylbox från Kjell i sidan på kylskåpet, då hamnar
kalla sidan inne och varma sidan ute. Sen har jag byggt en vattenuppsamlare där kondensvattnet samlas upp till en PET-flaska. Då ser man ju exakt hur mycket vatten man kondenserat.

Med 5,6kg ursprunglig smet till en salami har jag nu 1,5 liter rent vatten i flaskan.
Där kan man tala om helt ren köttsaft! 😉 Funkar skitbra.
Nästa steg är att använda en bättre fuktreg så jag kan köra både luftfuktaren och
peltierelementet från samma regulator. (auber) Här kan ni se logger: Salami2_del2

Attachat är fukt och templogg där jag kört avfuktningen manuellt.
Det är rätt uppenbart när avfuktningen varit igång. När den sen stängs av
ångar korven upp fuktigheten igen på några timmar. Under denna period
har luftfuktaren varit helt avstängd.

New humidifier in my curingcamber

I know that the most of you dont have any problems with humidifying, but you have with dehumidifyingAnyway we here in the cold north kneed humidifiers due to the low humidity in the air. I found one on Blocket (As Amazon) for 400:- (47$). Its a Topcon with its own controller for humidity.

I have some major problems with my old humidifier from Biltema. The ultrasonic plate is not working so i have changed it many times, realy bad quality.

I have no idea how well its working ore if it have better quality then Biltemas.

Here is a diagram over the time its have running in the curingcamber.

Wait an see!

How to dehumidificate the curing camber

I shall in this issue describe how the dehumidification process works and how you can install it in the curing camber.
How to increase or decrease the temp is easy, how to increase the humidity is also easy, but how to dehumify is the tricky part. Many have tried with dehumidifiers or salt. All to decrease the humidity. This will not work! First a dehumidifier vill not go in a so small camber. Even if there is small dehumidifiers to buy so will they work to slowly. Salt will be saturated immediately. No the solution is to use a small heater that will dry the curing camber.

This is my solution for the problem. Use a computerfan and a ceramic reptile heater.

You can buy the reptile heater on your local zoo store ore ebay, amazon. The computer fan you maybe can get from a old computer. Bevare of your current 110 ore 220V there is different lamps. There is more important saftey rules, you must take care for heat from the heatbulb this means that you have to use a ceramic lampholder and no burning material next to the heater. All wiring is your own responsebility, if you not know how to do dont do this!

The fan have the current 12V and i use and old computer power source.

I will here show whats happening in the curingcamber:

I use a regulator that will increase ore decrease the humidity. This is pictures from ebay. They have different for 110 and 220V!

Here is more pictures from my installation in the curingcamber:
