Considerations When Comparing Humidification Systems

In industrial processing and manufacturing plants as well as for specific types of storage facilities and for any type of commercial greenhouse, having a humidification system in place will be essential for daily operation.

Purposes and Benefits

These humidification systems actually serve several different purposes. The primary reason for installation will be to maintain a constant level of humidity in the environment and that can be set to meet the parameters required for the specific facility and operation.

However, these same systems also provide several other benefits as well. They are ideal for limiting dust in the air and even small particles of dust produced in paper and textile manufacturing can easily be trapped in the microscopic water droplets and removed from the air.

Additionally, the humidification systems will also help with odor control. This is another secondary consideration in choosing misting types of systems over other types of humidification options.

Mist Distribution

With any type of climate control system, having sufficient coverage to uniformly disperse and distribute the mist will be critical. This is accomplished through the use of the misting equipment coupled with cooling fans. The fans move the mist throughout the facility over a specific range.

Some misting systems and fans have only a small area of coverage. Others, particularly those designed specifically for commercial use, offer full coverage of up to 3600 square feet. In a large commercial building, this wider dispersal area is a key factor in providing optimal climate control while also keeping the initial cost of purchase and installation within the budget.

Control Options

Control of the humidification systems should also be another key point of comparison. Many models operate on a switch type of control, requiring the user to manually turn the system on.

There are also systems that operate on automatic humidity sensors that can be connected to the system. These can be either internal sensors and microprocessors or they can also include external sensors. These systems can turn the misters and fans off and on automatically to keep the humidity level within plus or minus two degrees of the pre-set level.

For maximum efficiency and to allow for ease of manual control over the system in any commercial application, there are systems that operate with a universal remote. This is a very good option as it allows for complete adjustment to the system from a distance of up to 150 feet from the receiver with a small key fob type of remote.
