Dehumidifier Applications & Services
When cold surfaces are surrounded by moist air, water vapor will condense on the surface if the dew point of the surface is lower than the dew point of the surrounding air. This phenomenon, known as “sweating,” often leads to corrosion such as in water treatment plants or during surface preparation and coating of storage tanks in the chemical industry. Bry-Air’s desiccant dehumidifiers are used to blanket surface areas with dry air resulting in condensation prevention and economic benefits to the end user.
Corrosion can be defined as a change from one form to another through chemical reaction and, often times, the presence of moisture in the air accelerates the reaction. Most people are familiar with the term “rust” which is nothing more than ferrous metals corroding in the presence of water vapor. Crystals such as sodium iodide and lithium fluoride can also corrode due to the water in the air. Bry-Air’s desiccant dehumidification units have been used effectively in electronics manufacturing, the storage of idle equipment in military and industrial plants as well as in chemical plant pipe galleries just to name a few.
Hygroscopic materials have an affinity for water and are sensitive to high relative humidity. Moisture regain by some of these materials causes them to become sticky and to not flow freely causing catastrophic problems in candy making, materials conveying, pharmaceutical and vitamin tablet making and packaging. Bry-Air, Inc. desiccant dehumidifiers are used to control the moisture content of the air in the manufacturing process thus ensuring reliable operation and product quality.
Fungi feed on any carbon based material and when they become airborne, they are often harmful to humans. As they feed, fungi can destroy priceless art or historical objects as well as grains that are used in breweries, seeds in storage or food products being shipped via ocean freight. Bry-Air, Inc. desiccant dehumidifiers are used to control the moisture content of the air which surrounds the material or object to be protected causing the micro-organisms to remain dormant.
Industrial dehumidifiers are crucial components in industries such as gelatin capsules, candy making, investment casting and sausage making, where drying a product at elevated temperatures causes catastrophic quality problems. The product will melt or the ingredients will deteriorate. Bry-Air, Inc. desiccant dehumidifiers are used to remove moisture at lower temperatures resulting in quality products and efficient operation.
Bry-Air desiccant dehumidifiers provide a low humidity environment which prevents microbial attack. The dry air is often enough for preservation of some materials without necessarily involving temperature control. Around the world, large and famous museums, churches and libraries use only dehumidification without temperature control to save and preserve the priceless treasures of the world.
