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 sp...
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 c...
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.
