When it comes to the humidity and temperature of working environments, it is important understand the possible outcomes that can arise if temperatures get too high or the humidity levels drop. In efforts to reduce the risk of a disaster, many standards and regulations have been put in place across various industries.
To ensure a proper atmosphere, an effective temperature and humidity controller must be in place. This is why specialized equipment like the FOGCOntroller was developed. Let’s take a closer look at the importance of environmental control and some of the many businesses which depend upon it.
Humidity and Temperature Control
In many commercial environments, controlling humidity and maintaining the temperature at an appropriate level is vital to the success of an operation. However, finding the best way to balance both factors can be challenging.
Many think that installing an air conditioning system is the solution. Unfortunately, by nature, an AC unit removes humidity from the air as it cools—This is counterproductive to any operation which requires substantial humidity levels as it will create an even greater need for additional humidification.
There is a better solution to this problem—Fog systems. You may be wondering “what is a fog system?” Basically, fog systems utilize high pressure water vapor to maintain and control both humidity and temperature levels. The vapor droplets are so tiny, eliminating the risk of moisture buildup in the environment. This means that nothing gets wet in the process.
In addition to providing an excellent cooling solution, fog machines offer other added benefits. With a programmable temperature and humidity controller unit, an effective fog system can lower temperature as much as 40 degrees Fahrenheit without compromising the temperature vs. humidity balance. Furthermore, the tiny droplets of moisture absorb all kinds of particles and odors from the air, so you receive additional benefits with cleaner air.
The Benefits of Controlled Environments
Although many industries are required to comply with specific standards and regulations—controlling your environment can actually provide significant benefits. A few examples are listed below:
Wine Industry ➜ High quality wines must be aged properly, requiring the liquid to ferment in fine oak barrels over a period of time. While these barrels of wine set, both humidity and temperature must be closely monitored 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. If the humidity levels drop too low, evaporation from the barrels increases and product is lost. In addition, it is far worse if the temperature in the wine storage area rises. Too warm of an environment will ruin the entire batch.
Greenhouses ➜ The growth and development of plants is dependent on its environments. Different plants require different temperatures and humidity levels in order to grow and produce. With a sophisticated temperature and humidity controller and a good fog system, greenhouses can maintain temperature and humidity levels in different areas—allowing a variety of plants to live in the same environment.
