It’s a difficult task to keep your cold storage dry, especially when you have several products inside that requires frequent access. Frequent opening of doors leads to the entry of warm fresh air in the cold store which comes into contact with walls, floors, ceilings and other surfaces leading to ice build-up. This is where desiccant dehumidifiers come in. They are used in active cold stores for dynamic storage applications and help with moisture problems such as wet floors, ice build-up on walls, floors and conveyors, frost build-up near the loading docks and fogging up the loading dock.
Ice build-up on evaporator coils increases defrosting cycles and thereby reducing the efficiency of refrigeration systems leading to higher energy bills.
The condensation in the cold rooms leads to compromise on hygiene, possible contamination and causes wet slippery floors leading to personal safety hazards, collision with other people and forklift accidents.
Moisture absorption by cardboard cartoons softens the cartons and make them unstable and hazardous to workers as well as unmarkable. It also leads to decreased readability of the barcodes resulting in non-productive time.
