Home / Applications / Dry Air Storage
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%.
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 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.
