College of craft and design in Ikaalinen, Finland
Protecting the delicate characteristics of the wood for musical instruments by controlling the ambient humidity as well as reducing dust lead to productive benefits and improved work environment at the department for guitar making.
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.
Ensuring consistent wood production
Wood is a highly hygroscopic material, so in order to ensure a consistent wood product, it is vital to control the temperature and the air humidity. Here's how
ESD reduction in electronics manufacturing
In electronics manufacturing, reducing the risk of electrostatic discharges (ESD) is essential to avoid damage to components and production equipment – not to mention personnel. Here’s how:
Evaporative cooling: Energy-efficient removal of excess heat
It is a fact of nature that a phase shift burns energy – for instance, when water in liquid form turns to vapor, the energy required will cause the ambient temperature to drop.
How consistent food production is linked to air humidity
Air humidifiers are essential in maintaining consistent quality and quantity of food and wine products, avoiding desiccation and loss of product weight and quality. Here's how:
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.
Humidity control in plastics production
In plastics and composites industries, correct air humidity keeps static electricity and dust in check, reducing the risk of downtime and ensuring a consistent production flow. Here’s how:
Improved productivity in packaging industry
By controlling air humidity, you ensure a consistent packaging product, fewer production stops, and you avoid damaged products and static electricity. Here's how
Increased productivity and less waste with air humidification
Low humidity has had a negative impact on the productivity of the BV Trappen for some time. With an air humidification system from Airtec®, the wastage percentage was reduced - and the positive effect on the indoor climate could be felt after only a few hours.
Indoor climate depends on the right air humidity
Avoiding dry air in offices and commercial buildings is the direct way to better wellbeing, protection of assets and a higher productivity. Here’s how:
In-room systems are typically used in production facilities such as printing houses, electronics manufacturing or other production areas with heat-producing machinery.
The IX/HX or psychrometric diagram (the Mollier diagram) is one of the most useful tools when designing an air humidifying system. See how to use it correctly here.
