This study presents a new adsorption material type humidifier for automobiles, in which the moisture in the outside air is adsorbed onto a solid desiccant material and the adsorbed water is then used as the humidifying source for the interior air of the car, that is, no additional water supply for humidification is required. The new humidifier was installed in a test car under actual conditions, and the humidification performance and the interior air quality, as determined by CO<SUB>2</SUB>, O<SUB>2</SUB>, dust concentration and SnO<SUB>2</SUB>, output, were measured. A comparison between the data for the new humidifier and those for an ultrasonic humidifier showed that the humidification ability was adequate but the interior air quality was far better when the new humidifier was used. Finally, the results of longevity tests, repeated adsorption/desorption tests and acid-gas poisoning tests are presented.
