The Importance Of An Industrial Humidifier In Textiles Manufacturing

The Importance of an Industrial Humidifier in Textile Manufacturing

When most people think of a humidification system in a commercial application, typically their first thought is of greenhouses. While having the correct humidity in any type of greenhouse is critical, it is only one of many industries that relies on the combination of humidity and temperature to create ideal conditions. 

Another industry that is highly dependent on the humidity is textile manufacturing. It is very important to maintain humidity during textile processing, particularly in natural materials such as cotton. 

The Importance of Humidity on Cotton

Cotton goes through many different processes from plant to fabric. It starts with a process that involves cleaning and straightening the cotton fiber to create a very fine strand. These strands are then spun to create threads or yarn, which are then used to create fabric. There are multiple steps in this process.

In these baling rooms and in the larger areas of the plant where this activity occurs through automated processes, the humidity needs to be maintained at approximately 65%. If the humidity is too high, the cotton fibers will clump at the point of creating the thread, which results in uneven and irregular strands.

Should the humidity drop below the ideal level more than one or two percent, the fibers will be brittle and break. The breakage creates irregularities and also tends to make all other cotton textiles made from those strands weaker and of inferior quality.

Cooling and Equipment

Automation and 24/7 operation in many cotton textile facilities creates heat, which has to be limited to prevent damage of fibers. When an industrial humidifier system is in place, the ambient humidity and temperature can be maintained for optimal production conditions.

Not only do industrial humidification systems protect the fabric, but they also help to extend the life of the equipment. The secondary cooling effects of misting systems are evident, and are an important consideration for any small or large production facility.

One of the advantages we have at Fogco is our extensive history in the humidification and cooling industry. With over a quarter of a century of working with different companies in a variety of industries, we have the understanding of why humidification and maintaining the correct levels of moisture in the air is so essential in various sectors.
