Humidity Control Chambers
The need for Humidity Chambers
In recent years, scientists have performed tests to determine the effects of temperature and relative humidity on a large number of materials. Using X-rays, scientists have noticed changes in the structure of crystals as temperature and humidity fluctuate. In certain substances, like potatoes, the crystals can undergo drastic changes with what many would consider to be only slight temperature and humidity changes, therefore, humidity control chambers are the best solution.
Structural analysis has also investigated various biologically active agents within the substances tested. Vitamins and enzymes in fruits and vegetation can go through a period of metamorphosis at the cellular level as 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 of Humidity Chambers
The challenge with humidity chambers is getting enough water into the air to properly preserve items in the unit without free water and condensation building up. Many commercial units can provide a humidity level of only 70 percent to avoid condensation. But for many industries, a higher level of humidity is needed for proper storage.
In recent years, DryFog.US has developed a system to provide humidity levels up to 98 percent without forming condensation in humidity chambers. The dry fog consists of miniscule droplets of water small enough to stay suspended in the air in a variety of conditions and temperatures.
