About This Item

DIMUS II™ humidifier

Most sources agree that Musafia set the standard for effective in-case humidification in 1988 with the distinctive DIMUS wick-style humidifier, now widely copied by other manufacturers world-wide. The new multi-filament filling in the improved DIMUS II humidifiers, during extensive testing, proved 30% more effective than conventional cotton in releasing water vapor into the atmosphere, meaning that the humidity within the case will be better maintained. This is especially advantageous in winter, when dry but cooler air has less capability of absorbing moisture.

Presented in 2006, this humidifier is a significant improvement over the humidifiers present in other cases. Standard on all Musafia cases except Lievissima.

Instructions for using the DIMUS Humidifier by Musafia:

If your Musafia case is equipped with the Dimus hygrometer/ humidifier system, please note that the hygrometer will indicate relative humidity inside the case (if it is kept closed) or inside the room (if it is kept open). The design of the interior as well as the lining material of the case have been conceived to help keep the humidity stable inside the case. This means that the hygrometer will not react immediately to changes in relative humidity, especially if normally kept closed.

The Musafia dial-type hygrometer has the dial divided into quadrants. The needle will indicate the appropriate quadrant if the air is humid (generally above 70%), normal (between 40% and 70%), or dry (below 40%). The optional digital thermo-hygrometer will indicate the actual relative humidity expressed in percentage.

If the air is humid or normal, no action is necessary. Do not use the humidifier in these conditions. If the hygrometer shows that the air is dry ( < 40%), we suggest the following:

1) Remove the humidifier from it’s clasps and immerse it completely in warm water in a sink for two minutes.

2) Shake it vigorously to eliminate excess water and dry it with a towel to avoid drippage.

3) Replace the humidifier in it’s clasps and close the case with the latch and zippers, leaving the case horizontal (and not standing vertically) for 2-3 hours.

This is sufficient to humidify the interior of the case to safe levels.

How do you get the wick wet? The hygrometer says my case is too dry, and I soaked wick , put back in case, and no change. This is for a Musafia case
