Since water exists in three different forms, which are solid (ice), liquid, and gas (vapor). Humidity exists in a vapor state and will always be present at varying levels in the air around us. You cannot see it but can feel the effect of it. It affects everything from your hair to breathing to electronics. It is produced via multiple sources, such as showers, cooking, or simply an increase of molecules in the atmosphere.
As gas molecules gather and become bunched up, more water vapor forms. When the water level in the air rises to capacity, it begins to transform into condensation, which can have detrimental effects on equipment vulnerable to corrosion or shorting out, such as computers and other electronics. While it is not possible to remove humidity entirely from the air, controlling humidity levels through a dehumidification’s process is essential for several reasons.
Dehumidification Prevents/Alleviates the Following:
- Formation of mold, dust mites, mildew
- Rust and corrosion
- High humidity in rooms with poor or no ventilation
- Excessive moisture issues
Industries Needing Dehumidifiers:
- Food packaging and processing
- Grinding and machining
- Cold Storage, freezers
- Cargo hold drying
- Libraries, Museums
- Storage facilities
- And much more…
Methods of Dehumidification
The correct method of dehumidification, desiccant vs. refrigeration, depends on external temperatures, relative humidity levels, the cost of energy, and according to the application. Sometimes a combination of methods is applied. Warm air most often retains more moisture than cold air. The dehumidification process removes moisture from the air or material in a room to prevent moisture from condensing on cold surfaces, such as from electronics that can be damaged as condensation builds up and corrosion develops. The air is circulated through the dehumidifier, removes the water, and recirculated back into the room.
One cost-effective air moving system for facilities with large open floors is a High Volume Low Speed system that utilizes fans that have longer blades, circulating at a slower and controlled speed. It distributes better air control, allowing it to reach the floor and reduce humidity levels. In addition, it lowers energy and maintenance costs.
We will work with you every step of the way to determine the most optimal environmental control system for dehumidification that can handle even the toughest of moisture-related issues. First, we determine the problem, develop a cost-effective plan, and implement a dehumidification system to aid you in reaching your desired outcome.
