HygroMatik Planning Aids.
FIRST IMPORTANT STEPS.
This overview gives you a brief aid to orientation when selecting the appropriate device for your project.
Step 1: What is the application where you would like to humidify the air?
The application area plays a critical role. What rooms are to be humidified and for what purpose? As “Commercial and public buildings”, air humidification for “Industry and processing” or steam applications for “Spa and Wellness” are all subject to different fundamental conditions and requirements, HygroMatik offers the right solution for each of these applications.
Step 2: What air humidity level do you want to reach at what temperature?
When you select the application, this generally defines a certain control range for the ideal air humidity / temperature relationship. However, in the planning phase, it is important to check the application for any project-specific peculiarities, and to work up clearly defined goals for the air humidity / temperature relationship to be achieved.
Step 3: Calculate humidity requirement using our calculation program.
You can calculate the steam power required (kg/h) using the conditions in the room which is to be humidified (dimensions on site, size of room, air exchange, insulation etc) and the desired air humidity. Our design program and other handy planning tools help you do this.
Step 4: What water quality is available to you?
The water quality available is an important criteria, to define the best technical equipment for a project. Electrode steam air humidifiers, for example, need conductive water, and so are well suited to drinking water. In contrast, heater steam air humidifiers are suitable as devices for use with water without salt content. They are practically maintenance-free. But they can also be used with drinking water.
Conversely, if the quality of the water available is not adequate to operate the required device technology, HygroMatik also supplies the right device for water treatment. These are perfectly aligned with our systems, making them very easy to incorporate into your planning.
Step 5: What demands will be made of the device (operating time in hours per day)?
Depending on how long the device in question will be used per day, the components built-in will be placed under different levels of pressure. Material design, maintenance intervals and accessibility play a critical role here.
So, in the development of our devices, we have paid particular attention to the different levels of demand. Devices such as StandardLineor FlexLine are specially designed for continuous operation.
We would be delighted to help you estimate the demands on the system. We can select the device together, so that this best meets the requirements of your project.
Step 6: Do you want to humidify and cool?
Are the spaces in question subject to severe temperature effects from the outside (e.g. the sun) or the inside (e.g. process heat)? Then using an atomisation air humidifier can help. These humidify and cool the air using an adiabtic process. Here, a fine cloud of spray is produced, which is absorbed very quickly by the air, and cools the air adiabatically.
This guarantees particularly hygienic humidification with minimal energy consumption and very high effectiveness. The electrical energy requirement is particularly low in this type of humidifier. Due to the energy-efficient generation of cooling power, the running costs for managing your room conditions can be kept very low.
