Managing humidity
in cold store

Dealing with the effects of unwanted moisture and ice

Tackling causes
not symptoms

Low-temperature storage facilities – from cold stores to freezer tunnels – often run into problems when moisture in the air turns into condensation and then into ice, resulting in loads of bothersome practical difficulties and revenue-nibbling costs.

Cotes adsorption dehumidifier solutions enable you to tackle the basic causes of all this ice and condensation – giving you full control over conditions, lower operating costs and greater customer satisfaction.

Practical issues
caused by humidity

  • Condensation forms on all kinds of cold surfaces, introducing risks of bacterial growth and hygiene problems
  • Condensation and ice accumulate and give rise to lots of safety issues
  • Ice forms on fixtures and equipment, and gives rise to lots of practical problems and manpower-intensive remedial measures
  • Ice accumulates on evaporators and causes increased energy consumption
  • Stored goods and their packaging get wet and damaged, resulting in product losses and dissatisfied customers
  • Barcodes get covered over or damaged, and can’t be scanned
  • Mist forms in the air, causing visibility problems and safety issues



In cold store installations, undesirable levels of moisture in the air give rise to a whole range of practical problems. These are a bugbear in day-to-day operations, and also tend to pile on costs. Cotes humidity management solutions are by far the most energy-efficient way of bringing the conditions inside cold store installations under full control – achieving more with less.

Big benefits
