    I am wondering how to answer this question: how the fin's thickness influence the humidifying ability of a fan coil, provided that the face velocity is kept constant?

    Sorry, I made a mistake.It should be "dehumidifying ability", not "humidifying ability"

    There are big holes in the information that you posted to give a comprehensive answer. Air handlers don't humidify.

    I think you are talking about dehumidifing, are you not?

    If so the more fins per inch, on the cooling coil, the more moisture will be removed.

    Tis true what benncool says.

    Hmm

    Sorry, Bencool, I mean the dehumidifying ability about the coil. But I would like know how the fin's thickness affect it, rather than the fin space.
