Storing and manufacturing wood products in a consistent environment is important to avoiding problems in quality of materials and the quality and consistency of the final product. Temperature and humidity control are crucial, and Koolfog humidification solutions allow for control during each day of every season.
|Challenge||Control temperature and humidity levels year-round for consistency in wood and wood products.|
|Solution||Using Koolfog humidification solutions and specialized controllers we are able to define temperature and humidity levels in wood storage areas, manufacturing areas and paint rooms.|
|Benefits||Our humidification systems avoid the problems associated with swings in temperature and humidity levels including warped or damaged product, cracked or warped wood or other. Humidity is controlled without overbearing noise levels or wetting.|
Wood, like most materials and organisms on earth, has a direct affective relationship with the air, and the moisture the air holds. This can be considered an exchange, and the amount and direction of the exchange varies depending on the temperature and humidity of the air quality as well as the current amount of moisture in the wood. This moisture defines the way wood will look, feel and function in any application. The challenge is to gain a balance and then sustain it. Wood is stable when the moisture content in the air is greater than the fiber saturation point, or when the cell walls of the wood are fully saturated but the cell lumens contain no water. To reach a status of stability, we push as close as we can to the wood’s Equilibrium Moisture Content (EMC). This ideal condition is when the wood is neither losing nor gaining any moisture. This level of control can be achieved, however, with Koolfog’s wood humidification systems.
Koolfog’s wood humidification systems emit a dry mist, so water will evaporate long before directly touching any of your wood products. As Koolfog’s custom designed and manufactured high-pressure pump drives the water through our stainless steel atomization lines, the water is broken into mini particles when pushed through our anti-drip nozzles. These particles are designed to take existing heat out of the air and replace it with moisture. This moisture/air relationship is precisely calculated and can be preprogrammed by our control systems to allow you to set your ideal humidity and temperature settings and walk away.
Avoiding the risk of splitting, cracking, shrinkage or warping in your wood products is pertinent to your production and revenue streams. The question is not do you need a wood humidification system; it is which company offers the highest quality with the greatest cost benefits to you. Koolfog’s wood humidification systems are custom designed for each specification and can be integrated almost anywhere. Our maintenance package and control set up allows for easy maintenance, simple troubleshooting and we offer excellent technical consults at anytime during our regular office times as well as an extensive resource of videos and articles online.
There are many nuances of your wood production and storage business, creating an environment of moisture and temperature stability is imperative to your business’ success. Koolfog’s wood humidification systems give you the freedom to pre-define your settings and step away to focus on more pressing areas of your business. With quality engineering, superior manufacturing practices and attentive customer and technical service, choosing the company for your wood humidification systems is a simple choice.
