During stopages, turbines tackle very severe corrosion risks. If appropriate measures are not taken, corrosion can cause a lot of damage to many different system components, and can result in major disruptions to the restart. Find out how Air Solutions can help with temporary rental dehumidifiers.
Desiccant or Refrigerant?
Dehumidifiers remove moisture from the air. There are two main types of dehumidifier technology that do this: Desiccant and Mechanical (refrigerator coil technology).

It is commonly acknowledged by preservation experts, that inappropriate water vapour in the air are a real threat to the preservation of documents, artifacts and relics.
Humidity can lead to moisture damage, bacterial growth and corrosion of the object to be preserved. Once, this has occurred the object will probably never return to its former condition.
Reducing the risk of unexpected downtime is crucial for one of New Zealand’s leading dairy producers. Therefore equipment such as boilers need to be protected from corrosion when not in use. Accordingly, Air Solutions have supplied Fisair desiccant dehumidifiers to control humidity levels inside of power generating boilers.
Our client was required to carry out maintenance on specialised transformers. To complete this maintenance work, a temperature specific, very low humidity environment was required to maintain the integrity of the transformers.
Equipment such as transformers need to be kept in a low humidity environment for any repairs and maintenance. Accordingly, Air Solutions sister company in Australia have supplied desiccant dehumidifiers to control humidity levels inside of purpose built maintenance buildings.
It does not matter if you have a fully developed technical specification, rough concept of what you need or no idea at all. We work with you to design a system which turns your customer's requirements cost efficient humidity control reality.
During shutdowns, all equipment must be preserved in the 'As Left' condition till there is a need to activate them. When needed, they should be capable of going 'On-Line' immediately.
When a power plant is not in operation, many components within the plant are subject to corrosion. Corrosion occurs due to the presence of moisture in the air. Moisture accelerates the rate of corrosion leading to malfunctions and the deterioration of parts and components such as Turbines, Power Generators, boilers, condensers etc.Rate of corrosion accelerates, when Relative Humidity crosses the critical level of 40%.
Two Units Installed in Three Months. Return on Investment in First Year. Taylor Preston Ltd is a privately owned meat slaughterer, processing and export company situated in Ngauranga Gorge near Wellington, New Zealand. In 2012 they decided to take a stand against ice build-up and condensation in their cold stores and invest in a desiccant dehumidifier.
Lower dew points, humidity levels and heat the air at the same time.
Perfect for sandblasting and coating contracts. We have a large fleet of temporary rental dehumidification equipment available. Capacities ranging for 50m3/hr to 3,800m3/hr and above.
Apata Group Limited appears to have a problem with fruit labelling all wrapped up, thanks to some innovative thinking, and materials and technology more commonly found in the building industry. The company has warmed and dried the environment in which SunGold kiwifruit is graded inside its Kaimai packhouse, by sealing off the area with plastic used to wrap leaky buildings, and installing a dehumidifier and a heating unit.
Achievefaster filling and accurate weighing as well as less stoppages. Find out why ice forms on product and packaging equipment as well as what solutions we can provide.
Eliminate Condensation and Ice
A common problem with cold stores and freezers is the build up of ice and condensation. Achieve a cold store without ice, improve product quality and reduce the risk of accidents using dehumidification
A green New Zealand invariably means a wet New Zealand. Humidity and inappropriate amounts of water vapour constitutes a real threat to the continued preservation as once moisture damage, bacterial growth, corrosion has occurred the object to be preserved will probably never return to its former condition. . Temperature and pollutants are important factors in preserving documents. In general the humidity and temperature have to be as stable as possible and pollutants should be kept to a minimum.
Ever wondered why high humidity in winter isn't uncomfortable, but high summer humidity makes the air feel sticky? The main reason: Temperature. Read this blog to find out more..
Humidity can be measured in several ways: either by relative humidity, absolute humidity or dew point. But what is the difference? In this post we try to explain the different ways of measuring humidity.
Ice build up is caused when moist air enters the cold store. Sometimes there can be thin layers of ice which has the appearance of snow. When the moist air comes in to contact with cold surfaces such as floors, walls and evaporator coils, the water vapour in the air condenses to form water and then freezes to form ice.
Moisture typically enters the cold store or freezer during door opening times.
Desiccant dehumidifiers contain no refrigerant gas, CFC's or HCFC's and so has a lower environemental impact.
Dehumidification can be achieved through two processes. Desiccant and Mechanical (refrigerant). Find out why desiccant dehumidification is better for the environment.
Interesting article from Level, the NZ authority on sustainable building. This article covers the issues around humidity in the home and provides reccomedations for residential housing.
Keep your seeds dry. Storing seeds at a low relative humidity conserves energy, extends seed life, prevents storage losses and saves you money. Protect your seed storage facility from fungus and mould attacks with desiccant dehumidifiers.
