ENSURING ENVIRONMENTS SAFE
FOR BOTH WORKERS AND STORED GOODS
Controlled humidity plays a major role in maintaining the value of items in industrial freezer storage facilities. Uncontrolled humidity, on the other hand, can give you problems like:
- Condensation on virtually any cold surface and fixture, as well as on the stored goods
- Ice forming on walls, ceilings, floors and storage fixtures, causing accidents and safety concerns
- Damage to both products and their packaging, impacting value as well as customer satisfaction
- Reduced energy-efficiency and increased operating costs
- Bacterial growth and hygiene risks
Controlled humidity maintains product quality
and protects value
Humidity challenges in industrial freezer storage facilities
One of the key influences on the commercial success of industrial freezer storage facilities lies in the owner or recipient of the stored goods being completed satisfied with their condition, appearance and value once they are released from storage to the next step in the supply chain.
Uncontrolled levels of airborne moisture bring significant risks to product and inventory value. If – or, rather, when – moisture-laden air from outside the facility enters the freezer space, this moisture condenses on virtually any cold surfaces and fixtures, as well as on the stored goods themselves.
Any lack of control and any element of risk is bad for business. The formation of any such condensation on building surfaces – perhaps even dripping onto stored frozen products – damages both the products and their packaging, impacting values as well as customer satisfaction in addition to reducing the energy-efficiency of the freezer installations and thus amping up operating costs. And because pooled condensation provides ideal conditions for bacterial growth, there are also hygiene risks.
The condensed moisture will often form layers of ice on walls, ceilings and floors as well as on storage fixtures and other installations and icy surfaces tend to give rise to accidents and safety concerns.
Reducing risk, preventing loss of value
The most effective way to tackle humidity-related problems in industrial freezer storage facilities is to remove the large amounts of airborne moisture that may be present in such areas, and to control the dew point of the remaining air. By controlling the dew point, it is possible to completely prevent any condensation– with all its many knock-on effects and problems – from ever forming.
Energy-efficient Cotes adsorption dehumidifiers make it possible to dramatically reduce the moisture load in any such storage facility. Full control over levels of airborne humidity enables you to roll back many of the key elements of risk associated with operating an industrial freezer storage setup. This in turn also makes it possible to significantly reduce value-impacting damage to both products and packaging.
Lower levels of humidity – and, more importantly, control over such parameters – within a building also bring additional side benefits by preventing corrosion in equipment and structures, as well as helping avoid moisture-related glitches in any electronics and electrical equipment that may be installed.
