Fugtstyring

HVAD ER FUGT HELT PRÆCIST

Luftfugtigheden er betegnelsen for den mængde af fugt i luften

Luftfugtigheden er på den måde mængden af vand i luften. Den absolutte fugtighed er betegnelsen for den mængde af vand der er tilstede i en specifik luftmængde, og som ofte betegnes og måles i gram/m3. Den relative luftfugtighed derimod, er forholdet imellem den aktuelle luftfugtighed og den mængde af fugt, som luften maksimalt kan indeholde. Relativ luftfugtighed måles altid i procent. 

Upassende niveauer af relativ luftfugtighed giver anledning til en lang række af potentielle problemer i industrielle og kommercielle virksomheder af alle slags. Usikkerhed og mangel på kontrol er aldrig godt for forretningen – så Cotes løsninger til fugtstyring er skræddersyet, til at hjælpe dig med at opnå og genetablere fuld kontrol over fugten og forholdende omkring vigtige installationer, udstyr og processer.

Relativ luftfugtighed og dugpunktet

Denne film forklarer sammenhængen imellem den relative luftfugtighed og dugpunktet, og viser hvordan du kan kan styre og justere dette for at opnå det ønskede resultat.

FUGTPROBLEMER

De mest gængse problemer med uønsket luftfugtighed er blandt andet:

KONDENS

Kondens opstår når luft – som næsten altid indeholder en vis mængde vand – har en anden temperatur end de overflader den kommer i kontakt med.

Korrosion

En kombination af luftbåren fugt og ilt er en frodig grobund for korrosion af metaller.

Isdannelse

When there’s lot of moisture in the air and you have no control over it, it’s really a problem waiting to find somewhere to manifest itself.

ELECTRICAL FAULTS

Moisture and electricity are never a good combination. High levels of moisture in the air - humidity - can often result in faults and operating glitches

SEASONAL FLUCTUATIONS IN AIR CONDITIONS

In most parts of the world, ambient air conditions fluctuate significantly from one season to another. Climate change is also resulting in increased uncertainty

COTES TECHNOLOGY

Cotes is the world’s leading expert in adsorption dehumidification technology, providing superbly engineered, low-maintenance humidity management solutions that are remarkably energy efficient.

A Cotes adsorption dehumidifier is a sleekly designed, fully enclosed unit that includes a rotor, geared motor, ventilator fan(s), heater, air filters and an integrated electrical control system.

We can also add other equipment and special heating/cooling capabilities to tackle your specific requirements and priorities. The best technology and the best know-how about how to apply it effectively are a potent combination.

 

The adsorption dehumidification principle

The effect of Cotes adsorption dehumidifiers basically stems from the action of two flows of air. The process is self-sustaining and requires little maintenance.

HOW IT WORKS

This film explains how the two air flows are used to collect and lead away airborne moisture.

HOW YOU BENEFIT

Effective humidity management gives you a degree of control over operating conditions that is often crucial for future profitability.

Dehumidification technology is the most cost-effective and environmentally responsible way to tackle many practical problems widespread throughout industry. It’s a relatively straightforward, inexpensive way to implement pro-active measures that help you maintain the value of key structures and other high-value assets, reduce energy consumption, and boost the efficiency of a wide range of industrial processes.

Better control over the moisture in the air gives you:

  • Better control of key parameters that affect your raw materials, production processes, manufacturing installations and fixed assets
  • A way to actively prevent detrimental conditions and events that include condensation, rust and corrosion, mould and rot, electrical faults and spoilt materials
  • Longer service life and better return on investment for structures, buildings and equipment
  • Reduced expenditure on service, maintenance and refurbishment
  • Lower energy costs and reduced environmental impact
