Not to say it won't work, but I consider high humidity 80 to 90%.
Plus, do you honestly think your load is heavy? No, your load is barely causing some of the water to evaporate. Your loads are tiny around here, you guys could be making these things from 2L bottles. If your going to make one, make it look good.
Excuse me but that is a very different set of conditions than what you posted earlier. You specifically stated over 50 percent humidity in your 'example' and made a statement of performance under those conditions. 80 to 90 percent humidity? Do you think that is representative of real world conditions for most pc use?

As far as my load goes, no I don't think it is 'heavy' compared to an industrial application. However that is comparing apples to oranges.
And at the end you come to your real objection. Appearance. Go figure.
Have a nice day.

After working in industry so long you end up thinking a "standard installation" is 10 tons! And yes, I did say 50%, at 50% you are losing about 50% off your maximum load. But with what you guys are dealing with, (About 1/12th of a ton), even losing 50% puts some of your 3 and 4ft bongs with 4" diameter PVC around 3 tons.
After reading your sections on thermoelectrics, you could afford to run five 600W peltiers on a 3ft bong like seen, without breaking 2 or 3 degrees above ambient. That would be 3000W + load or around 4500W.

Oi you are a stationary engineer or mechanical engineer right? You should hop onto the old bong lovers club thread and help us with designs. Seriously, if you know the theory behind the design of industrial cooling towers / the math of it all, then come help the community out.
Just a thought,

THat's enlightening. I wasunderthe impression you needed a long distance for the water to fall...

Any thoughts on using a more conventional set up with some form of pleated material that wicks up water? Like an evap cooler...

That is a design that has been talked about on the bong lovers club thread actually. A guy on another forum named Volenti came up with something he called a 'chuxevap' that got very good temps. There was also a design using scrubby pads to wick the water up in a short tower (like 12" tall)

High surface area cooler; and self taught mechanical with too many stupid degrees to name
Basically the goal is to spread the water out as much as possible with those, and pleated sheets will work but you risk major mildew and Legionaires disease getting around

Dude... I cannot even start to comprehend what yuo just said in that statement, but if i could, I am guessing it was pure genius.

Sorry what I mean to say is even these tiny things you guys make should handle more then your computers load, the load is really rather small. In industry we might build a 6ft tall tower to cool a few thousand watts, while some of the members here have done it for a few hundred.

Many more sense in my mine now and a 6 foot tower to cool a few thousand woah.
