Did you know that cigars are hygroscopic? Cigars absorb and lose humidity depending on the surrounding moisture content. That’s why it’s so important for manufacturers to store their cigars in a humidity-controlled environment. Fogco’s high-powered humidification systems are the ideal solution for controlling humidity in your facility for the best preservation of your cigars.
Cigar Manufacturing Challenges and Solutions
Proper humidification will help preserve the quality of cigars and tobacco products. Without maintaining a humidity level of 68% to 74%, cigars can lose their flavor and lead to burning issues. Enhance flavor and ensure the perfect burn with the help of Fogco’s humidification systems.
How Fogco Can Help Maintain Humidity in Cigar Facilities
Fogco’s humidification systems work by producing a finely atomized mist; humidity levels can easily be maintained when paired with one of our humidity and temperature controllers. Check out the industrial humidifiers cigar manufacturers are using across the nation.
Larger manufacturing facilities need high-capacity humidification. If your humidification is lacking, consider our flagship Revolution® series. The Revolution® provides humidification coverage of up to 30 feet and features a 2100 CFM misting fan.
The Evolution® produces a high-powered stream of fog ideal for long, narrow manufacturing facilities. This fan provides 250 CFM and is great for smaller manufacturers looking for a better way to maintain cigar facility humidity.
