3. Keep machine away form reach of children. I will be dangerous to insert anything into the machine.

4. Always keep machine from sources of heat like sunlight, heater, gas etc.

5. To increase efficiency please close all windows and door while machine is operating.

6. Do not bug oil, spray paint or any flammable near dehumidifier unit. It can cause fire.

7. If you are using hose connection for continuous drainage then make sure that pipe connected tightly to hose and it should have any folding and should have slope.

Maintenance of Humidity control unit.

Regular maintenance of unit not only increase efficiency of unit but also its life. It is very important that before starting any maintenance work, please unplug unit from power socket. Some of general maintenance tips are as follow:

  1. Unplug unit from power socket.
  2. Cleaning of Filter: Most of units provided with washable air filter. You can easily remove these filter and clean it by vacuum cleaner or if it is washable filter then it can be clean under tab water. regular cleaning of filter is very important for clean and healthy air.
  3. If dehumidifier is dirty externally then you can clean it with help of half dried cloth.

Industrial Dehumidifier: Different applications.

In this article we are going to explore different applications of industrial dehumidifier in processes. Industrial dehumidifier also commonly know as commercial dehumidifier or commercial grade dehumidifier or heavy duty dehumidifier. Humidity control in industrial processes not only important for completion of process but also it does affect quality of end product of process.

industrial dehumidifier and commercial dehumidifier applications.

How to select Commercial dehumidifier for Industrial applications:

Industrial dehumidifier in UAE.To select right size of commercial dehumidifier we need to understand that industrial process. First step to note done current humidity level and required humidity level. Also we need to note down room temperature, amount of fresh air in CFM, no of people working, if there is water involved in process and if involved then is it hot or cold. All these factor will help us to reach right size of commercial dehumidifier. For Industrial applications dehumidifier should be heavy duty with strong and corrosion proof  body. Large Dehumidifier should have high operating temperature. Preferably commercial industrial dehumidifiers have inbuilt controller to set required humidity, speed control. Most importantly dehumidifier should have auto function which means commercial duty dehumidifiers will stop when room humidity reaches to set humidity and should start again when humidity in room becomes higher than set humidity. Industrial portable dehumidifier should have strong pneumatic type wheels and handle for easy movement. Ctrltech is reputed industrial dehumidifier manufacturers.

Different applications of dehumidifier for Humidity Control.

Dehumidifier used in many industrial applications. Some of the applications are as follow:

Fool industry: In food industry always low humidity is desired during production and in storage area. High humid environment in food storage area can give rise to mould an fungi. Warehouse storing pulses or dry fruits should have low-humidity level for maintaining quality of food. Also in chocolate industries and bakeries required low-humidity in production area and storage.

Museum & Archive Room: Museum and archive rooms stores high valuable material such as books, paintings, statues etc. High humid air in Museum and archive rooms can destroy artefacts or damage it beyond repair. Especially for books and paintings low humidity as much as 20% is desirable. High humidity in old car museum can cause rust on metal parts.

Equipment rooms: Many equipment are sensible to high humidity. Especially equipment consisting of electronics are desired to store in low humidity areas. High humid environment in plant room can cause rusting on costly equipment. High humid air in telecom room or datacentre can cause breakdown on equipment and servers. Dehumidifier should be use if manufactures of equipment suggest for low humidity for operating conditions of equipment. Portable commercial dehumidifiers are most suitable for this application.

Marin application: Due to always proximity to sea water, high humidity observed in marine ports, ships and marine industries. High humidity can cause rust of mechanical equipment’s, malfunctioning of electronic in ships. It is very important to control humidity in control dock of Ship. Marine standard dehumidifier should be installation in control room of ship.

Cold Room Storage: High humid environment, condensation is common problem in cold storage room. Desiccant dehumidifier should be install at construction stage of cold room to avoid these issues.

Dehumidifier capacity selection.

It is always a big challenge for users like us to select capacity of dehumidifier for our home. Once we decided to go for new dehumidifier unit then we always faced with common question of which capacity. In this article we will try to understand how to decide capacity and airflow of portable dehumidifier for home.

What home dehumidifiers should have?

dehumidifier home humidity-1While selecting dehumidifier for home we need to make sure that capacity should be sufficient so that it an remove humidity at the same time dehumidifier should be able move over certain amount of air in certain period of time. In simple word we need to decide liter/day extraction capacity of and Air flow volume of dehumidifier. Extraction capacity generally mentioned in terms of liter/day or pints/day. It is nothing but maximum amount of water that dehumidifier can extract from air in one day. Air flow volume is important to consider since moisture from air will get extracted only if air passes through dehumidifier. More the Air flow, more air will pass through dehumidifier and moisture level from air will come down quickly. Air flow volume mentioned in terms of Cubic Feet per Minutes (CFM).

Selecting Liter/day Dehumidifier Size.

As long as dehumidifier for home is concerned, Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) has made job very easy.  AHAM offered easiest dehumidifier buying guide. AHAM has recommended capacity of dehumidifier depending on size of room and humidity level in room. Capacity of dehumidifier is directly proportional to humidity level in room and size of room. is Depending on level of humidity and its symptoms AHAM divided area in following four types:

1) Extremely Wet Area: Areas with extremely high humidity level with Wet Floors and High-Load Conditions.

2) Very Wet Area: Areas with high humidity which tends to condensation water drops formation on walls and seepage on walls.

3) Very Damp Area: Common symptoms of these areas are bad odour from carpet, clothing, sofa and damp spot of walls.

4) Moderately Damp Area: In such areas you feel uncomfortable and with smell.

 

Depending on Humidity levels (as mentioned above) and size of room, AHAM offered following guideline to select size of dehumidifier.

dehumidifier sizing guideline by AHAM.

 Selecting Air flow volume for dehumidifiers.

CFM Air flow volume needed in room is decided with help of square foot area of room and humidity level in room. Air flow volume is directly proportional to square feet area of room and humidity level in room. Square feet area of room determines how much air should pass through dehumidifier while humidity level in room determines how many times this air should pass through unit in hour. This term is denoted as ACH or air changing per hour.

Air flow volume in CFM can obtain by multiplying square foot area of room and recommended ACH for that room. Recommended ACH from different areas as follow:

1) For Extremely wet area: These are areas where humidity level in range of 90% to 100% RH. Recommended ACH is 6.

2) For Very wet area: These are areas where humidity level in range of 80% to 90% RH. Recommended ACH is 5.

3) For Very Damp area: These are areas where humidity level in range of 70% to 80% RH. Recommended ACH is 4.

4) For Damp area: These are areas where humidity level in range of 60% to 70% RH. Recommended ACH is 3.

By multiplying Area of room in square feet to Recommended ACH, one can get Air flow Volume for Dehumidifier.
