Where are Adsorption Dehumidifiers normally used?

Adsorption dehumidifiers are particularly suited for use wherever lower temperatures, low humidity levels or low dew points are required.

There are some examples of where such dehumidifiers are used.

  • Filtration and purification facilities
  • Warehouses (dry storage, climate-controlled cold storage,  unheated warehouses, etc.)
  • Waterworks and pumping stations
  • Hydroelectric plants
  • Waste water treatment plants
  • Ships’ holds and storage tanks
  • Ice rinks
  • Storage silos
  • Bridge structures
  • Wind turbines
  • Breweries
  • Pharmaceutical production facilities
  • Refrigerated and deep-freeze storage facilities
  • Military vehicles and equipment
  • Turbines and boilers in power plants
  • Offshore oil/gas drilling and production platforms
  • Crawl spaces and basements in buildings
  • Museums, libraries and other high-value storage facilities
  • Spray drying systems
  • Low dew point facilities
  • Laboratories
  • Server rooms
  • Clean rooms
  • Freezer and Cool rooms

What are Adsorption Dehumidifiers normally used for?

Adsorption dehumidifier technology normally plays a key role in production and processes that require dry conditions.

Examples 

  • Manufacture of optical panes, laminated glass and double glazing
  • Manufacture and storage of pharmaceuticals
  • Air used in pneumatic transportation systems
  • Dry air for coating processes used in the production of chewing gum and pharmaceuticals
  • Manufacture of wine gum and other hygroscopic food products
  • Manufacture of lithium-ion batteries
  • Keeping wind turbine installations dry and in good condition
  • Drying out newly constructed buildings, or structures damaged by flooding or downpour
  • Preventing the formation of condensation on cold surfaces in all kinds of structures and storage facilities
  • Dry air for use in spray drying systems
  • Drying out wet clothes and equipment in a wide range of different contexts
  • Dry air used in sandblasting and industrial coating processes
  • Point dehumidification in aircraft, vehicles and boats
  • Preventing ice formation in cold stores and freezing tunnels/facilities.

The PAYOFFS of humidity management

Effective humidity management gives you:

  • better control of parameters that affect your raw materials, production processes, manufacturing installations and fixed assets
  • lower costs for service, maintenance and refurbishment
  • lower energy costs and reduced environmental impact
  • longer service life for buildings and equipment
  • a way to actively prevent detrimental processes such as rust and corrosion, mould and rot, condensation, electrical faults, and spoilt   materials
  • and products

Cotes adsorption dehumidification technology enables you to take full control of conditions in the air surrounding your industrial processes.

And better control is good business.

UNCONTROLLED HUMIDITY MAKES NASTY THINGS HAPPEN

Condensation

CONDENSATION

Condensation is the result of the fact that the air, which inevitably contains a certain level of moisture, has a different temperature from the surfaces with which it comes into contact.

Corrosion and rust

CORROSION AND RUST

The combination of humidity and oxygen makes metals corrode, significantly affecting both strength and durability. Iron and steel rust  and lose structural integrity, copper is plagued by verdigris, affecting
electronics and electrical equipment.

Mould and rot

MOULD AND ROT

Wood, building materials and other hygroscopic materials absorb humidity. This can give rise to many kinds of mould and rot, affecting both structural integrity and material value.

Electrical faults and electronics problems

ELECTRICAL FAULTS AND ELECTRONICS PROBLEMS

Humidity can create corrosion in components and brazings, giving rise to dangerous short-circuits and flashovers, as well as impacting uptime and service costs.

Clumping and blockages

CLUMPING AND BLOCKAGES

Powders and granulate absorb humidity particularly easily. They then clump together, affecting quality and causing blockages in processing equipment, as well as providing a fertile breeding ground for bacteria.

Inconsistent production conditions

INCONSISTENT PRODUCTION CONDITIONS

Seasonal fluctuations in humidity result in inconsistent production conditions that can affect product quality, energy consumption and profit margins.

Inefficient use of energy

INEFFICIENT USE OF ENERGY

Traditional ways of dealing with humidity (such as heating and making humidity condense so it can be removed) use much more energy than adsorption dehumidification. This makes adsorption dehumidification systems a much
more energy-efficient solution.

Lack of control

LACK OF CONTROL

Not having full control over humidity impacts:

  • return on investment in major installations, plants and structures
  • reliability of electronics and electrical systems
  • operating uptime
  • product quality and consistency
  • energy bills
  • service, maintenance and repair costs

Different horses for different courses

Several distinct technologies are normally used for removing unwanted humidity from the air. Each has its own particular advantages.

Traditional condensation dehumidifiers can be used within a relatively narrow temperature band of 10-32 °C, and work best at 30 °C and when there are high levels of water vapour in the air.

In short, they are only really effective at high temperatures and high levels of relative humidity.

Adsorption dehumidification technology, on the other hand, can be used over the entire range of temperatures from -30 °C to +30 °C, and is most efficient in the temperature range from -30 °C to +20 °C.

In short, adsorption dehumidifiers are effective over an extremely wide range of temperature conditions and at any level of relative humidity, and are the only viable solution at temperatures below about 10° C.

For the discerning customer, this makes adsorption dehumidification the technology of choice due to its versatility and ability to operate over a substantial range of temperature conditions.

Resume of Benefits – Cost Savings

Controlling humidity is ultimately a question of establishing – and keeping – control over parameters that can have big effects on efficiency, reliability and profitability. Controlling what’s happening with your company’s operations is a management priority.
