The potential problems that can be caused by high humidity in cold rooms are typically tackled by dehumidifying the air. However, it is important to select the most appropriate solution for each application, as John Barker of Humidity Solutions explains.
The problems that can be caused by icing up of evaporator coils in cold rooms are well understood, as are the benefits of using dehumidification to prevent this from happening. However, with several options available it’s important to select the dehumidification solution that best meets the end client’s requirements.
The key issue is that moisture in the air will condense onto the evaporator coil and freeze, resulting in reduced efficiency of the refrigeration plant. There can also be problems of ice formation in other areas, potentially creating hazards and almost certainly resulting in downtime for defrosting.
