One of the world’s largest home furnishing retail chain scheduled to open in Mumbai in March 2020 had to postpone their launch due to the Covid pandemic. They were all set with their interiors and merchandise on display and this unforeseen event forced them to postpone their launch without an opening date in mind. Preserving the merchandise became the top priority for the furnishing store specially from moisture as furnishing tends to catch moisture quickly and lead to fungal growth, mold and mildew. Upholstery is likely to attract moisture from surroundings which eventually affects the wood, causing risk of fading, expansion or losing colour. High moisture levels lead to fungal spores in pillows and mattresses as excess moisture tends to […]
Wardrobes in high humidity seasons tend to smell musty, even the clothes inside the wardrobe develop a strange musty smell. The cause of this musty smell is excess moisture in confined areas. Leather handbags, wallets and shows develop white spots and fungal growth due to this excess moisture, ruining them completely. This damage caused due to excess moisture to our clothing collection, our accessories and other valuables in the wardrobe interfere with our need to keep them in a pristine condition. Dehumidifiers have been one great solution to preventing the moisture build up on the wooden surface of wardrobes and the moisture settling on our clothing, handbags and other accessories. Dehumidifiers protect our valuables and our wardrobe by safeguarding them […]
High and varying humidity levels have a severe effect on components of electronic appliances and their working. Excess moisture builds up on the electronic components and condenses on the surface of chips and circuit boards leading to electronic malfunctioning and failures. Use of portable dehumidifiers from Origin have proved to be an effective solution in your living room areas and your home media centres where you have set up your home theatre systems and music systems that need protection from excess moisture. Dehumidifiers also protect your musical instruments from moisture damage. Dehumidifiers ensure a safe and dry environment for the smooth functioning of your home theatre systems, speaker systems and musical instruments at your home.
A coordinate measuring machine is a high-precision measuring machine used to measure the geometry of physical objects by sensing discrete points on the surface of the object with a probe. Probes are of various types, mechanical, optical, laser and white light. (Definition Source: Wikipedia) Moisture in air causes condensation and corrosion on the parts of the control measuring machine, especially if the parts consist of iron. Additionally, control measuring machines have granite tables which are hygroscopic in nature, so humidity variations affect their dimensional stability and make them unsuitable for use in CMM’s of the highest grade. To understand corrosion effects on the control measuring machines better, pls find the below table: (Table Source: Environmental Effects on Coordinate Measuring Machine […]
A new review suggests COVID-19 pandemic may remarkably depend on the levels of humidity indoors and outdoors. As, Prof. Akiko Iwasaki, an immunobiologist at Yale University and his co-authors note, in the transmission of respiratory viral illnesses, seasonal cycles are known to play a key role. There has been research on the link between viral outbreaks and the season. The two main elements that contribute to the link are changes in “environmental parameters and human behavior”. Particularly variations in temperature and humidity influence how stable and transmissible the viruses are. Some of the imp points noted by researchers are: Very low humidity levels makes it easier for the airborne viral particles to travel. Too much humidity in the air also […]
Excess moisture has its visible effects in manufacturing areas across industries. Observing controlled and consistent humidity and temperature level plays a very important role in the manufacturing process. High humidity levels have a direct impact on the manufacturing process and drying cycles of various products that are susceptible to moisture. In pharmaceutical, food and confectionery manufacturing areas, high humidity affects characteristics and composition of ingredients majorly, it causes hygroscopic powder ingredients to form lumps (known as agglomeration), leads to microbial growth and bacterial contamination thus affecting the overall product quality, reducing the product shelf life and posing serious health risks. In electronic, electricals and equipment manufacturing areas, circuit boards are very sensitive to high levels of moisture, high humidity levels […]
Humidity and heat are a cause of trouble in working and controlling of electronics in machines. Humidity is an adversary of joint parts in electronics that are integral in controlling machines. It is known that corrosion grows swiftly when humidity rises above 60%, varying levels of humidity and temperature also make electronics vulnerable. Controlling humidity and temperature levels must be observed for smooth functioning of electronic equipments. Humidity contributes to corrosion by the process of Ion migration. When voltage is applied to the metal in electronic equipments, the water molecules from the air (humidity) that have settled onto the metal surface causes the metal ions to elute. This is known as ion migration. When ions migrates, there is a risk […]
High and varying moisture levels are a major cause of concern in food production, processing, packaging and storage facilities. Excess moisture leads to bacterial contamination, lumping of hygroscopic powders, change in characteristics of ingredients. It also leads to product degradation which reduces the product shelf life. These factors contribute majorly in increased amount of product rejects and also in poor consumer experience. To avoid these instances and to ensure quality and hygiene throughout the process, Origin dehumidifiers play a very important role by ensuring consistent and controlled humidity levels to meet the stringent requirements of the food industry. Origin Dehumidifiers safeguard raw materials and finished goods both from any sort moisture damage, prevent bacterial growth and enhance the overall shelf […]
Excess humidity causes condensation inside hardware, it leads to rust and corrosion on the sensitive components, fungal growth and disk drives to fail. High humidity thus ruins electrical equipment’s and all these factors cause breakdowns, interruption in service and unexpected downtime. Controlled and consistent humidity levels play a major role in keeping the systems up and running and protecting them from moisture damage. Origin Dehumidifiers regulate and maintain ideal humidity levels which prevent downtimes, safeguards the equipment’s and maintains a reliable humidity controlled environment throughout for optimal and steady performance of server rooms and data centers.
Varying humidity levels have visible effects on the surface of paintings and artifacts such as warping and cracking of the surface, discoloration of material, loss of surface material or the material becoming brittle and fragile. Excess moisture leads to mold, fungal growth and black spots on surface of paintings and leather. On metals it causes corrosion. These factors cause degradation of paintings and artifacts. Origin Dehumidifiers have proven to be the most effective solution in preserving paintings, collections and artifacts from any sort of moisture damage and has helps safeguard your valued collection for years together.
