What exactly is humidity?

Humidity

Humidity is the amount of moisture present in the air.

Absolute humidity is the amount of moisture present in a particular volume of air, and is normally measured in grams/cubic metre.

Relative humidity, on the other hand, is the relationship between the actual amount of moisture present and the maximum amount that the air could contain. Relative humidity is always measured as a percentage.

Inappropriate levels of relative humidity give rise to a wide range of potential problems in industrial processes and commercial operations of virtually all kinds.

Uncertainty and lack of control are never a good thing in business – so Cotes humidity management capabilities are designed to help you establish full control over humidity conditions in important structures, equipment and processes.
