The HEVAC Humidity Group has drafted the technical paper on Evaporative Cooling to explain this energy efficient approach to enhanced cooling.
The Humidity Group was formed expressly to create awareness and understanding of the importance of Humidity in Commercial, Industrial and Domestic environments.
The guide includes a description of evaporative cooling; comparison of mechanical cooling and evaporative cooling; incorporation of evaporative cooling systems; technologies; hygiene; typical applications and terminology.
According to FETA, humidity is essential for a great many Industrial, Commercial and Domestic situations.
Maintaining a Relative Humidity (RH) of 50 per cent contributes to a healthy and comfortable environment. It also eliminates the build-up of static electricity.
Letting the RH fall below 35 per cent, FETA argues, will cause staff to suffer from dry eyes, respiratory problems and electric shocks. The Close Control of Humidity is also important to many industrial processes, where it helps to optimise quality and productivity. It also helps to provide the correct environment for the storage of products and produce and their preservation.
The Humidity Group Objectives
- To promote the advantages and proper use of Humidification.
- To work with the HEVAC Association, to actively promote national and international Policies relating to Humidificaction.
- To participate in the drafting of UK regulations, codes of practice and European Standards relating to Humidifiaction.
- To prepare and publish information that will assist engineers with the selection and application of Humidifiers, as well as commissioning and maintenance.
