Wood Manufacturing and Humidifiers

Ask any wood manufacturer when it comes to making anything out of wood, there is always copious amounts of sawdust or dust in general flying around. Even with vacuums, filtration systems and masks there is still dust everywhere.

How Our Product Helps

Our humidification and evaporative cooling solutions offer the following benefits:

  • Decreases the amount of free-floating dust
  • Eliminates product waste – less cracking and warping
  • Reduces employee related injuries due to airborne particles being less flammable
  • Prevents mold

Smart Fog Humidifiers

Smart Fog takes the guessing out and does the work for you!


Humidity decreases the amount of free-floating dust. Droplets from the humidifier and dust particles attract one another and the dust’s weight increases. This allows it to fall at an accelerated pace sooner than it normally would creating less chance for inhalation and possible respiratory issue among your employees.

Slip Hazards

Buildup of fine sand dust on a shop floor is also a potential slip hazard. Sand dust more over is finer than traditional sawdust thus creating slippery floors. Keeping floors clear of any dust can reduce work related injuries.

Fire Hazard

Dust is also less flammable when it is moisture dense making it far likely to explode. The dust becomes explosive when the particles are so dry that fire can flash from one piece to another instantly. Introducing moisture slows the reaction enough to stop this from happening.

A clogged filter or other problem can cause dust to accumulate in a specific area. That area then becomes a potential fire hazard. Installing a humidifier gives you the peace of mind of knowing an unseen problem will not make itself known with a bang.


Warping and Cracking

Woodworking facilities store large pieces in warehouses and other buildings. Here, the wood is subject to warping and cracking as it dries out. These problems are more predominant when the air is too dry. The stored wood dries out unevenly, and this causes the internal strains that damage it. Stopping this problem is often as easy as installing a humidifier. This helps control the drying speed thus making for a more even process.

Good storage practices like keeping your boards flat will also assist in strain prevention. Good ventilation prevents mold and other bacteria from growing during storage.

Furniture Warehouses

Finished products still need to be stored in a balanced humidity-controlled environment. A proper environment will keep finishes from cracking and crazing while curing. Even coated and protected, wood is still susceptible to warps and splits before selling.
