  • Patent number: 6099404
    Abstract: A process and apparatus for humidification of air in a cabin (4) of an aircraft, wherein a secondary flow of warm air is taken from a primary warm air flow that originates in a turbomachine of the aircraft. This secondary warm air flow is introduced into a boiler (6) enclosing an air/water heat exchanger (17) and at least partially filled with water, so as to form in said boiler a flow of water vapor as a function of the secondary warm air flow. At the outlet of the boiler (6) the flow of water vapor and the flow of secondary warm air are in mixed together and injected into the heating/air conditioning circuit for the air in the cabin (4).
