A humidity-controlled environment is essential in many manufacturing industries including:

  • Micro chip and computer
  • Textiles
  • Paper
  • Wine and liquor
  • Woodworking
  • Automotive

Controlling humidity can increase profitability and is crucial for keeping electrostatic discharge (ESD) from building up. Humidification systems pump water through high-pressure atomizing nozzles resulting in a fine mist that immediately evaporates (called flash evaporation), allowing moisture to be immediately absorbed into the air. The high-pressure pump is the heart of the misting system and is relied upon day after day. These systems depend on Cat Pumps to keep their high-pressure misting systems running effectively and efficiently.

Quality is improved in textile and paper industries by maintaining optimal humidification, plus it reduces airborne lint and particles. In paper production and storage facilities, humidity needs to be closely monitored, because the paper products can quickly gain or lose excessive moisture. If the moisture levels get to high or too low, product can be ruined.

In woodworking applications, the humidity must be kept constant to ensure consistency of product. Wood can swell and shrink based on humidity and its ability to absorb and release moisture. During the machining process, moisture content is important to keep a uniform product for each batch. The facility’s safety is improved with humidification control due to an increased fire risk if humidity levels drop to low.
When storing wine and liquor in oak barrels, the humidity is relatively higher so that the amount of evaporation through the oak barrels is minimized.

Many paint processes now use waterborne paint due to environmental concerns. Although the paint is less toxic, it’s very sensitive to humidity changes. Manufacturing locations using large amounts of paint -- like an automotive plant -- can save millions of dollars a year by maintaining a precise humidification level.

With field-proven dependability in applications around the globe, Cat Pumps provides the best value for humidity control applications.
