The Humidicore™ depends upon a reliable motor to turn the core. Core rotation speed controls the outlet dew point. A variable speed motor is usually desired, although some fuel cell plants work fine at a fixed speed.
Brushless DC motors work best because of their long lives and non-sparking characteristics.
Emprise offers three motor models:
|(M-K)||0-55||15||12 to 36||24|
|(BMC)||0-40||30||12, 24, 48||50|
The chart below illustrates the outline dimensions of these motors. The torque requirements of the various cartridge sizes are as follows:
Any motor that meets these requirements may be used.

The Humidicore™ was recently selected as one of R&D Magazine's top 100 Most Technologically Significant Inventions of the Year.
