When low dew point air is present, it is impossible for ice to form on surfaces.
The air in contact with the ice will have a dew point lower than the surface temperature of the heat exchanger.
No water will condense on cold surfaces if the dew point of the air in contact with it is below that of the surface. DST Dehumidifiers are very efficient at controlling the humidity in air surrounding surfaces.
Iron and steel will not corrode if the relative humidity of the air in the environment is at a level below 50% RH
Products such as tablets, dry food, powders, sweets, bakery products are highly hygroscopic (water absorbent material). To manage and maintain the product’s high quality, low levels of humidity should be ensured that from the beginning of the manufacturing process until the sale to the customer, the product is in contact only with the air of low relative humidity.
If the air has a relative humidity below 50%, most hygroscopic materials do not absorb excess moisture. But still there are many products that require a relative humidity below 15%. DST Dehumidifiers are capable of reducing the rh to 1%.
When removing moisture from rooms, new houses, damp buildings, the most effective method of drying is drying sorption. Air heating only takes moisture from one portion of the building to another. Heating air in connection with ventilation is a very expensive method. When using sorption- drying the moisture is removed from the building quickly and cheaply.
Mould and Fungi
If the air is maintained at relative humidity below 70%, mould and fungus ceases to grow. It is important that no mould growth occurs in a range of buildings, as mould can produce volatile airborne spores that can cause serious issues to an individual’s health.
Bacteria can live and reproduce in the presence of moisture. Moisture in hygroscopic materials are a breeding ground for bacteria. So our goal is to maintain relative humidity below 50%. With such low levels of moisture, bacterial growth is inhibited.
Unpleasant odours can be reduced if the relative humidity is less than 50%, increasing the quality of life in a workplace and improving the experience the customer will have.
Sensitivity product temperature
Drying sorption is particularly appropriate if dried products are sensitive to high temperatures. The use of desiccants makes it possible to obtain a very low relative humidity products.
Relative humidity significantly affect the mode of action of electrical and electronic products. Electronics exposed to high levels of humidity for extended periods of time can possibly cause corrosion and break downs. High levels of humidity can also produce condensation, which could short-circuit the device.
