5 Benefits of an Industrial Humidifier in the Healthcare Environment
June 18th, 2020 by Smart Fog
The healthcare industry is one in which constant levels of humidity are very important. Not only does it make the environment more comfortable for patients, but it also helps reduce bacteria and viruses. An industrial humidifier will help keep medical environments clean and at precise levels of humidity. Whether it is at a hospital or a doctor’s office, Smart Fog humidifiers can get the job done. These industrial humidifiers are some of the best on the market and a popular choice for healthcare environments. Read on the learn about 5 benefits of having an industrial humidifier in the medical world.
Non-Wetting Micron Droplets
Micron droplets are one of the most important things provided by industrial humidifiers. Did you know that Smart Fog has the smallest droplets in the humidifier industry at 4.2 microns? So what does this mean and how does it relate to healthcare? Small droplets mean that they can stay airborne longer. This means that they will completely evaporate before hitting any surfaces. The micron droplets allow for the environment to get proper levels of humidity without any wet surfaces being left behind. Smart Fog is proud to state that we have achieved a 100% evaporation rate with 100% water efficiency.
This is crucial to the medical world because it would be unsafe if surfaces were wet from the humidifier. A patient could fall and hurt themselves if floors were wet. While the micro droplet and evaporation rate may seem complicated, here is what you need to know: Smart Fog creates humidity without ever leaving behind moisture on surfaces.
An Industrial Humidifier Has Precise Humidity Control
Another important part about an industrial humidifier is that is allows for precise humidity control. In a hospital the ideal level of humidity is between 40% and 60%. Forbes.com writes of a study done on levels of humidity in a hospital. The study found that lower humidity in the hospital air was associated with higher infection rates. Believe it or not, the dry air allows droplets and skin flakes (which can carry viruses and bacteria) to travel further and for longer, infecting patients. In addition, dry air also hurts natural immune barriers in the body which help prevent infections. This study shows how important it is for medical facilities to be able to control the level of humidity.
All Smart Fog units have the ability to intelligently and precisely control humidity levels in the environment. Each Smart Fog humidifier is equipped with a CPLC controller that uses an intelligent algorithm to identify the most efficient way to generate the required level of humidity. Rest assured that the humidity levels will stay exactly where they need to be in your healthcare environment. Now more than ever, it is important to slow down the spread of infection in our hospitals and doctor’s offices.
Reduces Dust, Mold, Bacteria, and Viruses
Another benefit of industrial humidifiers is that they reduce dust, mold, bacteria, and viruses. As mentioned above, a dry environment allows bacteria and viruses to spread more efficiently in a medical setting. Smart Fog reduces the spread by injecting oxygen into each droplet. Then, a de-correlation technology reverses the correlation effect through a non-chemical mechanical process. This maximizes adhesion. Dust, airborne disease, bacteria, viruses, and mold spores are attracted to the droplets and then oxidized. This is due to the fact that the droplets are smaller than 5 microns. If the droplets are larger than 5 microns, the particles will not be attracted. This state-of-the-art technology will help keep your medical environment clean. Aside from the desire to reduce the spread of bacteria and viruses, medical facilities also should be dust and mold-free. Smart Fog helps keep the environment clean, thus helping patients heal quicker without getting new infections.
A Smart Fog Industrial Humidifier Saves Energy
Another benefit of an industrial humidifier is that it saves energy. In a large medical facility, it is important to save energy anywhere you can, otherwise costs can be astronomical! Saving energy is also better for the environment. A lot of medical facilities have the goal to reduce their carbon footprint and installing a Smart Fog is an easy way to do that. Smart Fog saves energy through its natural de-correlation process. This process is the most efficient way for a system to generate droplets.
Last but not least, a Smart Fog industrial humidifier is low maintenance. It has no moving parts and installation is a simple plug and play process. In addition, all of the piping in the system is plastic which is very durable. This is perfect for the medical environment. Install Smart Fog in your medical office or hospital and then don’t worry about it! Just in case, we provide customers with a one-year, comprehensive warranty. In addition, we provide a comprehensive economical extended warranty plan that covers all equipment.
Healthcare environments should be as clean and safe as possible. While we often picture nurses wiping down surfaces with disinfectant wipes, what about the air? Low relative humidity levels in the air at medical facilities can actually increase the spread of airborne infections. Fortunately, a Smart Fog industrial humidifier can help healthcare environments keep their buildings at precise levels of humidity. These humidifiers produce the smallest micron droplets in the industry. This leads to the non-wetting of surfaces through a 100% evaporation rate. In addition, these micron droplets attract dust, mold, virus, and bacteria particles and then oxidize them. The systems are energy efficient and low maintenance. Whether you own a hospital, doctor’s office, dental facility, or PT clinic, our industrial humidifiers will help keep your environment safe.
