Gelatin Capsule Drying

Gelatin capsules are typically small empty capsules manufactured to contain various medications and vitamin supplements. When dried at the correct temperature, gelatin capsules are soft and smooth, and resist reaction to other substances.

The manufacture of gelatin capsules requires precise temperatures and relative humidity (RH). For example, if the air temperature and humidity used to dry gelatin is too low, it will set rapidly and becomes brittle. If air temperature and humidity is too high, the gelatin will not solidify correctly. Other issues caused by incorrect temperatures and humidity levels include dimpling and shrinkage. All of these issues will affect the manufacturing process, causing costly delays and downtime, therefore moisture and temperature control are critical factors for correct gelatin capsule drying.

The use of a dessicant dehumidifier in the capsulating process will maintain the correct temperature and humidity for gelatin capsule drying, and offers an economical solution to the temperature and humidity problems experienced in gelatin capsule manufacture.

Humiscope has dessicant dehumidifiers available for rent or purchase across Australia, and we have experienced staff who can guide and advise on the best models for your needs. Humiscope has many years of experience providing humidity control solutions to the pharmaceutical sector, and are industry leaders in gelatin capsule drying so get in touch with a friendly staff today and discover how dessicant dehumidifiers can save you time and money.

Improving Business Productivity: A Great Reason to Rent a Dehumidifier

Do you have a temporary humidity issue? Call Humiscope to find out if a dehumidifier could solve your problems.

Dehumidifiers can be used in a wide range of applications. Sometimes they are only needed for a short time, while a specific task is being completed. It is times like these when a rental dehumidifier is the solution.

Power stations completing temporary shut downs can use rental dehumidifiers to safeguard their motors and equipment from rust and corrosion while they wait for the next  ime they are needed. Repairs to sensitive transformers that require a controled environment can use rental dehumidifiers for the repair period.

Sand blasters and boat painters use dehumidifiers to speed up the drying process. By removing all the moisture from the air when painting large objects, drying time is significantly reduced and production increased.

Humiscope has a large rental fleet of Munters and Fisair type desiccant dehumidifiers. These units suite a variety of both commercial and industrial applications with airflow from 120m 3 /hr to 8000m 3 .hr. These units are specifically designed for large projects and perform well in almost any environment requiring climate control. They can be either positioned outside of the building, allowing dry air to be ducted in or place inside the building, allowing moist air to be ducted out. Delivery can be arranged anywhere in Australia.

Renting a dehumidifier is also an excellent choice for business owners who are considering dehumidification for cold storage or food processing plants. A Humiscope rental dehumidifier brings moisture levels down quickly and will maximise the efficiency of your cold storage facility. Humiscope is conveniently located in Southport and has an extensive range of high-quality rental dehumidifiers for long and short term hire. We haveknowledgeable staff ready to discuss your needs, so give us a call today and start improving the productivity of your business.

Cold Storage: Reduce Ice Build-up with a Dehumidifier

Desiccant dehumidifiers are designed to control moisture in the air to reduce humidity and condensation. Dehumidified air in cold storage reduces ice build-up, combats mould and bacterial growth and increases refrigeration efficiency. Regulated frost-free cooling in cold storage environments prevents saturation and stickiness of products and makes the workplace more pleasant for your staff.

In a sub-tropical climate like the Australia, it is a fact of life that warm air will always find its way into a cold storage area. Installing a dehumidification unit ensures the moisture in the warm air that forms ice is removed, along with condensation around doorways and on ceilings.

Dehumidification of your cold storage will make the environment safer and more sanitary – floors will stay dry, ceilings will not drip onto staff and produce, and doors without ice build- up will seal properly. Dehumidification will also increase the efficiency of your refrigeration

system as it will not be labouring under increasing defrost cycles caused by condensation and ice build-up.

There is no down-side to dehumidification systems in cold storage facilities. Once you have one working for you, it will be hard to imagine how you survived without it. Health and safety standards are easier to maintain in dehumidified cold storage, and you will save money on energy costs and wages. Discover how a dehumidifier can save your business money.

Humiscope Provides a Low Humidity Environment for Transformer Repair

Humiscope Provides a Low Humidity Environment for Transformer Repair

Our client was required to carry out maintenance on specialised transformers. To complete this maintenance work, a temperature specific, very low humidity environment was required to maintain the integrity of the transformers. 
Equipment such as transformers need to be kept in a low humidity environment for any repairs and maintenance. Accordingly, Humiscope have supplied desiccant dehumidifiers to control humidity levels inside of purpose built maintenance buildings. 

Dehumidification in Gas Boilers

Boilers 

With high operating temperatures and water treatment during operation, corrosion is prevented from occurring. During shut down for repairs or on standby, the system starts to cool down and high relative humidity in the air starts to become a problem, creating corrosion. 

Water vapour circuit 

Relative humidity must be kept at a low 30%. The sizing of units depend on variations in absolute humidity with respect to the exterior temperature difference.  It works as an open system(all exterior air). Pumping air to the areas most sensitive to humidity. Air conditions must be measured in the outlets. 

 

Gas circuit

Corrosion is the result of the presence of sulphuric acid. This is less aggressive when its concentration increases: and the concentration increases when the environment is dehumidified. According to the graphs, the relative humidity  required is 5%. We have however learned from experience that 20% is enough.

The Results

When the dry air method is used, excellent results are achieved:

  • It is easy to check whether there are corrosion risks, by simply evaluating the humidity in the air outlets. 
  • It enables access to the parts conserved, while they are being protected. 
  • Less energy is required than in the heating method, and no dangerous and expensive chemical compounds are required as for humid conservation. 

All the above mentioned points of a technical and economic nature mean the dry air conservation method is preferable to all other possible methods.  



Boiler Protection in Dairy Sector

Boiler Protection in  Dairy Sector

Reducing the risk of unexpected downtime is crucial for one of New Zealand’s leading dairy producers. Therefore equipment such as boilers need to be protected from corrosion when not in use. Accordingly, Humiscope have supplied Fisair desiccant dehumidifiers to control humidity levels inside of power generating boilers.

The Importance of Humidity Control in Museums and Archives

The Importance of Humidity Control in Museums and Archives

It is commonly acknowledged by preservation experts, that inappropriate water vapour in the air are a real threat to the preservation of documents, artifacts and relics. 

Humidity can lead to moisture damage, bacterial growth and corrosion of the object to be preserved. Once, this has occurred the object will probably never return to its former condition.
