How it works and why
High pressure air humidification is a technology in which water vapor or water in the form of a fine mist is added to the air in a room in a commercial building or a production facility.
An air humidifying system works by adding water mist to the room directly via atomizers – small spray dispensers typically mounted along walls or under the ceiling. Another way of doing it is by adding water vapor to air supplied to a ventilation system – this solution is typically used in office buildings, hospitals, theatres etc.
The reason for choosing such a solution is to be able to control the humidity of the air in a commercial building (e.g. a museum or an office building) or a production facility. In this way it is possible to control with a high degree of precision the moisture level in the air, which can help alleviate some of the issues typically present in production facilities and commercial buildings: Excess heat, airborne dust, drying out of products (desiccation) or the risk of electrostatic discharges.
Humidity control in commercial buildings is important – air that is too dry or too moist will affect indoor climate and productivity.
At Airtec®, we design and install high-pressure air humidifying solutions in commercial buildings and production facilities. We also offer consulting engineers and HVAC specialists our knowhow in the design, setup, monitoring and servicing of such installations.
In our blog, we go into detail into the hows and why of high pressure air humidification technology - take a look at our blog posts below.

Virus and air humidity #03
A well-regulated indoor climate can help contain the spread of airborne virus. In this blog post, Airtec® sums up the facts and the recommendations.
Virus and air humidity #02
The body defends itself aggressively against virus coming in via our noses and mouths. But studies indicate that low air humidity can make these defenses less effective. Read about it in our second article about the effect of air humidity on virus spread.
Virus and air humidity #01
This is the first article in a series of 3 about the impact of air humidity on virus spread. Our intention is to present some of the scientific research that deals with the relation between the two.
Virus is more contagious in dry air. This is why:
Studies have shown that an elevated indoor air humidity can hinder or stop the spread of contagion due to virus. In fact, a relative air humidity of 40% or more can almost eliminate the infectivity of several types of virus – making indoor humidity control a r...
How to prevent airborne dust by increasing air humidity
Airborne dust is a by-product of most industrial processes and can constitute a threat to equipment and people. But airborne dust can be mitigated by control of relative air humidity. Here’s how.
The hazards of electrostatic discharges
Low relative air humidity increases the risk of static electricity causing damage to equipment and discomfort to people. Air humidity control is the key – here’s how.
Desiccation: How to avoid loss of product weight and quality
In low air humidity, hygroscopic products will undergo shrinkage, drying-out or spoiling, leading to loss of product quality, mechanical properties, shorter shelf life and reduction in sales weight. Read more here.
