Dehumidification

Our dehumidification is based on the principle of minimizing outside air that is allowed to enter the room. There is no resulting heat loss to the outside because air is continuously circulated through the dehumidifier, and the humidity is condensed gradually and subsequently removed from the room. Compared to the traditional method, which uses heating and ventilation to control humidity, our method of dehumidification not only reduces energy consumption, but also makes the dehumidification process much easier to control.

Dehumidification has ushered in a new era

WHY IS DEHUMIDIFICATION SO IMPORTANT?

Air is never completely dry whether indoors or outdoors. Many elements, such as steam from cooking and bathing, and building materials and furniture slowly drying out, can affect moisture content. Moisture emanated by production processes or the storage of damp goods, transpiration of plants, and latent heat from people also contribute to room humidity. As such, dehumidification becomes important. High-efficiency dehumidification is important not only for production processes, construction work, water damage, swimming pools, waterworks, and other obviously damp areas, but also for buildings with valuable items. People in all climates often benefit from dehumidification in less obvious, everyday situations. Due to ever-rising energy costs, buildings are much better insulated than before, and while the insulation can keep out cold and pollutants, but it can also trap humidity. This may result in unnecessary damages due to condensation on building structures, which can be easily avoided by effective dehumidification.

Why do we need dehumidification?

• Prevent corrosion
• Prevent microbial growth
• Prevent mold and fungal growth
• Prevent malfunction of electronic equipment
• Prevent physical discomfort due to indoor humidity
• Prevent metal surfaces from becoming unpaintable Prevent moisture damage of goods, building parts, furniture, etc.

Heating and ventilation

Traditional way of dehumidification is by taking in fresh air and overcool it to remove the water content in the air and reheat to achieve the desire RH with respect to room temperature. The supply air into the room is also ventilated out to prevent any build up in moisture and thus an increase in RH. This process is continued until the desired conditions are achieved. However, this traditional method has become increasingly out-of-date over the last few decades, as it is obviously very energy-consuming and uneconomical. Furthermore, the air taken into the room contains its own relative humidity, thus prolonging the process depending on the time of the year, the outside temperature, and weather conditions. Dehumidification has become a highly prioritized economic concern all over the world because of high energy costs.
