if you chilled your liquid (like outside in winter, or in a refrigerator), couldn't you prevent condensation by using a dehumidifyer? or would it not do enough to prevent it?

So, depending on how cold it is, and how humid your room is, a dehumidifier might be able to lower the humidity to prevent condensation.

here is some linkage, for those not yet able to think "outside the box" :D:D



the coldest I ever got, running a pII 333 at 575Mhz with a Chiller like this and a frost74 Peltier (this was a long time ago)

It got me to -49ºC full load.

he wanted to chill the water with the cold side of the dehumidifier,

temps id guess with just the chiller would be low single didgits celcius

Thats a deghumidifier? How do they work? (my guess would be cool the air and spit it back out maybe after heating it back up away from the water it dropped?)

Looks kinda like an AC unit.

A dehumidifier is just like a refrigerator how it works, how its used is a tad different though, its used to condence water out of the air instead of cooling something. but you can very well use it to cool something.

a lot cheaper yes, but also, not as powerfull a the average AC unit.
What makes them better for the job, is the relative ease with which
such a unit can be forces into submission and in doing so, making it do what you want it to do.... :D
as can be seen in the how-to that got linked to so shamelissly TA.... :)
