Many workshops require humidification, but the methods used by many traditional customers in moisturizing work are not very reasonable. In the past, the methods used for moisturizing in workshops were:
1. Soil method:
A. Sprinkling water on the workshop floor can slightly alleviate the problem, but doing so will make the floor messy and affect the production efficiency of the entire workshop. Simply using air evaporation cannot effectively humidifie the workshop.
B. Some customers also use electric heating wires (fast heating, small coal stoves) to boil water. This heating method generates steam, although it can achieve a certain humidification effect, it still cannot reach the wet binding level of 45-90% RH, and the electricity consumption is high, resulting in high costs. There is no redeeming feature for large workshops.
C: Some customers use existing air compressors in the factory, buy several spray guns to spray water, and rely on compressed air to turn the water into a mist state for humidification. In our opinion, this humidifying method has low humidifying efficiency and high gas consumption, making it unsuitable for small factories without atmospheric stations.
2. Using air conditioning for humidification: This can be considered a more advanced method, but the initial investment and maintenance costs of air conditioning are also high, and the humidification effect is limited. It can only reach a relatively low relative humidity level of 30-50% RH, which is far from the humidity requirements of the workshop.
3. Using a humidifier for humidification: This is the most ideal and economical method, but the problem arises again. Currently, there are many types of humidifiers, such as high-pressure micro mist systems, ultrasonic, electrode, centrifugal, and so on. In fact, no matter which type of humidifier it is, as long as it can meet our humidity requirements, it is sufficient. However, the prerequisite is what type of humidifier is the most convenient and economical, and we can choose it.
Below are the characteristics of each type of humidifier:
1. Ultrasonic humidifier: This type of humidifier has the best humidification effect. Previously, the humidification capacity of a single humidifier was relatively small, which could not meet the needs of large workshops. Now, we can achieve a single humidifier of 100Kg/h. The characteristic of this humidifier is its low energy consumption, with a humidification capacity of 100 kilograms per hour only consuming about 9 degrees of electricity, which is one tenth of the electrode type. Recommendation index 95
2. High pressure micro mist humidifier: It is mainly used in relatively large factories. If ultrasonic humidifiers are used in large factories, one is far from enough. Multiple ultrasonic humidifiers may be needed, which increases the maintenance work of equipment personnel and is not conducive to management. If a high-pressure micro mist humidifier is used, it can be integrated and controlled to undertake the humidification work of multiple independent workshops. Its disadvantage is that the nozzle is easy to block and has high requirements for water quality. It is best to use pure water. Recommendation index 90
3. Centrifugal humidifier: This type of humidifier is mainly used in workshops with a humidification area of less than 50M2. Its characteristics are cheap, simple installation, low maintenance costs in the later stage, and convenient energy conservation. The drawback is that the water mist particles are relatively large and the humidification efficiency is relatively low, which can easily cause water stains on the workshop floor. Recommendation index is 85
4. Water vapor mixed humidifier: This type of humidifier does not have the same humidification effect as the above mentioned ones, and its later maintenance work is very cumbersome, often causing problems such as blockage and water leakage. Recommendation index 40
5. Electrode humidifier: High power consumption, high water quality requirements, and high resource waste. When some manufacturers buy air conditioners, suppliers install electrode humidifiers in the air conditioners. After using them for a period of time, not only is the power consumption unbearable, but the humidification effect still fails to meet the requirements due to resource waste caused by frequent drainage of humidifiers. After disassembling the electrode humidifier and installing the ultrasonic recommended by our company, the humidity requirements were met. The recommendation index is 30
6. Evaporative humidifier: This type of humidifier has a relatively small humidification capacity and is suitable for humidification in small spaces such as homes, offices, and computer rooms. Recommendation index 10
I hope the above can provide some help for everyone in choosing humidification in the workshop
