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.
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.
In an recent article posted in the Guardian, the world's oldest mummies are degrading at a rapid rate due to higher than normal humidity levels in the atmosphere.
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.
