Dry Air Storage

Dry air storage is used for a variety of materials, such as corn, coffee, powders, sugars and electronic equipment. Using air is far more economical than heating and ventilating large storage areas.

Corrosion

Merchandise manufactured in materials such as iron and steel, demand low humidity. Vehicles, aircraft, machines and tools do not rust if the surrounding air is kept at a relative humidity below 50%.

Mould

Organic materials such as leather and paintings, contain micro-organisms. These can develop into fungus and mould, but will not occur if the relative humidity level is kept below 70%.

Bacteria

Bacteria requires a high humidity to survive and to multiply. If the humidity level of the surrounding air is kept below 50%, most bacteria will not survive. The limit is especially important when storing food products which are susceptible to bacteria.
