Why does the printing industry require humidity control?

In order to ensure an efficient process and excellent and consistent quality of the printed product, the temperature and humidity in places designed for the storage and printing of paper and cardboard needs to be controlled appropriately. What are the effects on paper? The hygroscopic nature of paper Paper is a hygroscopic material that tends to reach a condition of...

Why does air relative humidity affect the quality of coatings?

The application of coatings on a surface is a process that is affected by the relative humidity of the surrounding environment. The speed and intensity of the reactions that generate the protective film are dependent on air conditions. This is even more the case when using water-based paints or powder paints , which are increasingly widespread in industrial processes due to their low VOC...

Refrigerant prices: what is happening?

Everything is happening at lightning speed! Just one and a half years ago, when I began going into detail on HFC refrigerant regulations, it all seemed to be about a change that would happen gradually and be really noticed in around 5 years’ time. Indeed, except for home refrigerators, the F-gas regulation establishes banning dates from 2020 to 2025. Yet HFC refrigerant prices and...

Maximising heat recovery efficiency in ventilation units

Air quality inside residential and commercial buildings is an important parameter for personal comfort. Human activity in general produces CO 2 and other odorous contaminants, meaning air change is required by introducing fresh outside air. The increasing quality of insulation makes natural infiltration negligible, and therefore controlled mechanical ventilation is needed. This is the...

Chillers: what are the trends in refrigerants?

Most wine, beer and milk are made by a process that uses a chiller. It is essential to take away the heat produced by mixing, cooking and pasteurisation. Chilling systems are also indispensable in the medical industry. In particular, magnetic resonance imaging uses chillers to take away the heat generated by the equipment. The air-conditioning in most shopping centres and offices is also...
