Humidity Chambers

The need for Humidity Chambers

In recent years, scientists performed tests and discovered the use of special humidity chambers. Furthermore, they began testing the effects of temperature and relative humidity on a large number of materials. Using X-rays, scientists began to notice changes in the structure of crystals as temperature and humidity fluctuate. In certain substances, like potatoes, the crystals undergo drastic changes in only slight temperature and humidity changes.

Structural analysis also investigates various biologically active agents within the substances tested. Vitamins and enzymes in fruits and vegetation go through a period of metamorphosis at the cellular level. This is due to a response to changes in the environment. Many companies fight the ill effects of variant temperatures and humidity by using special humidity chambers.

Proper Control

The challenge with humidity chambers is getting enough water into the air to properly preserve items in the unit. However, there may be problems with standing water and condensation building up. Many commercial units provide a humidity level of only 70 percent to avoid condensation. However, for many industries, proper storage requires a higher level of humidity.

Smart Fog developed a system to provide humidity levels up to 98 percent without forming condensation in humidity chambers. Also, the dry fog consists of minuscule droplets of water small enough to stay suspended in the air in a variety of conditions and temperatures.
