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 […]

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 […]
