Goal: Research adhesive material to hold thermistors in place and packing material for the humidifier.
We needed an adhesive which would hold our thermistors in place to monitor temperature. The adhesive would need to adhere to both metal and PVC in a wet environment. We contacted Mr. Ed Johnson at NECAL Corporation and described what we needed. Mr. Johnson replied back the same day with the solution you see below and sent out some samples for us to try. Special thanks to NECAL!

We need to start looking at the packing material to use in the brine tank where heated water will be sprayed. We need something that will allow water to slowly trickle down and collect on the packing material. It also has to allow the warm vapor to rise up and over to the other tank. We are thinking about separate units that can be taken out and replaced. A range hood filter would provide the support surface on the top and bottom of each unit with humidifier filter material in between.
