Wet Bulb Thermometer for Humidity Readouts


Although direct-read hygrometers are readily and widely available, many breeders still prefer a wet bulb approach for measuring relative humidity. It is not only the most accurate method, but is also very low cost compared to digital hygrometers. The Brinsea wet bulb thermometer is specifically designed for use with the Octagon 20DX and 40DX and comes with a conversion chart showing Relative Humidity.

Directions for Use

How a Wet Bulb Thermometer Works:

Wet Bulb Thermometers are used for measuring the relative humidity inside your incubator, and are typically considered to have a much higher accuracy than a digital hygrometer. 

They are used in conjunction with dry bulb (standard thermometer). This is important because you will be comparing both readouts.

First, you will take readings from both the wet and dry bulb thermometer. 

You will then use a conversion chart to find out where the two readings intersect. 

This will give you a third number which represents your relative humidity. 

If your humidity is higher than you would like for it to be, you can open vents if your incubator has them. 

If it does not, you will want to adjust your water levels by either adding less water or reducing the surface area of the water you have added. 

If your humidity is too low, you can close your vents, add more water, or increase the surface area of your water by putting it in a larger mouthed container.
