Why is Humidification Important?
Humidity is essential for a great many Industrial, Commercial and Domestic situations.
Maintaining a Relative Humidity (RH) of 50% contributes to a healthy and comfortable environment. It also eliminates the build-up of static electricity.
Let the RH fall below 35% and staff will start to suffer from dry eyes, respiratory problems and electric shocks. The Close Control of Humidity is also important to many industrial processes, where it helps to optimise quality and productivity. It also helps to provide the correct environment for the storage of products and produce and their preservation.
