Andrews Dehumidification control humidity levels for pharmaceutical manufacturer

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.

What is the difference between a refrigerant and a desiccant dehumidifier?

The need for portable dehumidification equipment varies across a range of applications including construction sites – where drying times are accelerated – to museums and art galleries, where units are used to protect priceless works of art. Regardless of the environment, a dehumidifier works by removing moisture from the atmosphere and thus allowing the relative humidity (RH) to be controlled within the required parameters.

Other important factors that need to be considered include:

Swift intervention from Andrews Dehumidification Hire saves international food producer thousands

Once a potato yield has been gathered, it is absolutely imperative that all produce is stored appropriately in order to maximise its shelf life. A potato’s high moisture content makes it extremely susceptible to quickly developing bacterial soft rot and becoming unsaleable as a result.

Process potatoes – those typically farmed for fast food purposes – are harvested during autumn and are often difficult to store safely because of damp seasonal conditions. High moisture content outdoors can often cause ventilation systems to lose effectiveness which will in turn lead to delicate crops becoming spoiled if appropriate steps are not taken at an early stage.
