These sensitive applications call for looking at several established humidification techniques through a particular lens. The authors not only review the processes involved in various technologies but also some relevant secondary effects, such as a change (or no change) in the air temperature, that could be especially meaningful in a data center.
The assortment of standards, variety of technologies, and evolving weather patterns don’t make it simple. However, humidification and dehumidification strategies that suit the facility’s location and address some spaces’ specialized demands are worth the effort.
DriSteem has introduced its new Low-maintenance Humidification System. This all-in-one, near-zero maintenance steam humidification system integrates two DriSteem products — the Vapormist® electric humidifier and the 200 Series reverse-osmosis system — on a single skid mount with a single power supply and user interface controller.
The Museum of the Bible’s project team was already up against the extremes of Washington weather and the high demands of IAQ for artifact preservation. A system that harnessed adequate cooling, heating, humidification, and ventilation capabilities would still have one more hurdle: a physical footprint of hardly Biblical proportion. Get a first look at this testament to design acumen and true collaboration.
We got some great news just before shipping this issue to the printer. Stephanie Taylor, MD, who is writing a year-long IAQ column for us, has been invited to be a Fellow in the Royal Society for Public Health.
At Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, the mission was an air handling overhaul without interrupting the usual delivery of care. The project team delivered a safer, upgraded environment via a new desiccant system, air handlers, increased flexibility in the surgical suites, and more.
