In this paper, a technique of the humidity measurement is developed to identify the performance of membrane humidifier. The technique is designed to measure the performance of membrane humidifier during steady state and transient state. In particular, the measurement technique is very useful to understand dynamic behavior of humidifier because the response of commercial humidity sensor is too slow to capture the transient response of mass and heat transfer through the membrane. Accordingly, the heat and mass transfer characteristics of membrane humidifier are figured out with the experimental analysis. The parameters used in experiment are dry air pressure, humid air temperature and dry air flow rate.
