Home Humidifiers 60Hz About Humidity Wood / Paper / Textile Industries

Wood is hygroscopic and expands and shrinks with changes in moisture content. Maintaining humidity levels around 60-70% RH is critical in temporary storage facilities for wood. If the relative humidity is not maintained the wood loses his moisture to the air and will wrap and crack.

Paper like wood is hygroscopic and relative humidity below 50% of the surrounding air causes paper to shrink curl and lose dimensional stability. Humidity control will prevent moisture loss of the paper after drying.

Benefits of right humidification:

  • Reduces the amount of dust and static electricity in the air
  • Reduces dimension changes of wood
  • Minimizes issues with production process such as machine breakdown
