A popular confectionery producer faced difficulties relating to the humidity and dampness of one of their Midlands-based storage and distribution areas. At Andrews Dehumidification, we regularly work alongside food production companies to ensure conditions are as they should be, but our involvement in this project was slightly different. Rather than require assistance for controlling relative humidity inside the actual production line, our client needed help adjusting conditions inside the storage warehouses. The area in question had succumbed to dampness after many months of relative humidity being excessively high, leaving cardboard packaging outers wet.
Andrews Dehumidification Hire was recently contacted with an unusual request to assist the drying of a WWII air raid shelter in Brighton, Sussex, which had previously been concealed beneath the tarmac of a school playground!
Incredibly, workers at Downs Junior School rediscovered a once forgotten air raid bunker situated three metres underground. Since then, volunteers have come together to restore the shelter which experts believe would have originally been used to protect as many as 300 children from Luftwaffe planes. The area has since been converted into a local museum which offers an authentic insight into life during the Blitz.
Andrews Dehumidification Hire was recently contacted by a leading research facility in London, who sought an urgent drying solution to assist them with the severe condensation in their plant room.
The client had become concerned about condensation building up in their plant room as it was putting their technical equipment at risk of damage. As a result, our specialist team were drafted in to conduct a survey of the site before suggesting an effective dehumidification hire solution to combat the undesirable conditions.
When an independently owned and previously offline power station took the first steps towards recommissioning its facility, Andrews Dehumidification Hire were called in to help preserve their gas turbines.
The stations equipment was required to stay dry in order to prevent oxidising which would cost the customer thousands of pounds. Our specialists went to site to calculate the drying duty required, eventually proposing that our client hire five 110V DS40 Desiccant dehumidifiers – pairing each of the units to a gas turbine to maximise efficiency.
Andrews Dehumidification was recently contacted by a city council based in Hampshire who were in search of an urgent drying solution, which was needed for the committee’s archive store. This was located in the basement of their main building and had become overrun with moisture and mould.
A local expert visited the site to conduct a free and comprehensive site survey before proposing a tailor made drying solution which consisted of two DH150 refrigerant dehumidifiers.
As part of our dehumidification hire package, we also supplied the customer with condensate containers which we situated in the basement along with the rented dehumidifier units. We ensured the drying equipment maintained a relative humidity of 50%, protecting the documents from any further damage.
When a leading food distribution company suffered a leak in their storage building, a significant quantity of frozen goods, beverages and other products were immediately at risk. The client – who was responsible for supplying to partners in the catering industry as well as retail outlets – called Andrews Dehumidification Hire seeking an urgent drying solution.
The leak was caused by warm air in the building’s ceiling void condensing moisture on the pipes that feed the glycol chilled system. As a result, a tailored solution was recommended which included two DH150 and four FD40 dehumidifiers designed for drying buildings.
When one of the world’s largest independent cancer charities began building their new headquarters in Cambridgeshire, the project itself fell behind schedule. The primary issue centred around drying times, but Andrews Dehumidification were contacted and tasked with bringing the development back up to speed.
A local expert visited the site to conduct a free site survey before proposing a dehumidification hire package that would fulfil the needs of a major client. A tailored solution was recommended which included a single KT2000 desiccant dehumidifier rental package designed for drying buildings.
A leading construction company recently contacted Andrews Dehumidification Hire in search of an effective drying solution to assist with a building project. The client was attempting to dry concrete works in a newly built swimming pool and spa area.
Our experts surveyed the project, proposing a dehumidifier hire package that would fulfil the needs of a major client. A KT2000 desiccant dehumidifier was agreed upon, along with a FV300 fan which ensured the airflow of dry air was maintained at 2000m³/h.
When manufacturing pharmaceutical products, it is imperative that the clean room allows no environmental pollutants such as dust, airborne microbes, aerosol particles, and chemical vapours. In order to achieve these conditions, the room must have a positive air pressure and controlled relative humidity of no more than 30%RH.
So, when an industry leading pharmaceutical company experienced problems in the form of an under-performing existing dehumidification unit, our experts were drafted in to provide an effective short-term drying solution.
When a world-famous cheese manufacturer was at risk of experiencing a delay in production after their cold store began to lose effectiveness, Andrews Dehumidification Hire was called in to provide a practical drying solution.
Before cheese can be distributed to your local supermarkets, the produce is first stored in coolers until the desired age, flavour and texture is reached. Unfortunately for our client, their cold store rooms were failing to dry the cheese at the necessary rate leading to a deterioration in product quality.
