For the perfect film experience: Dehumidification in cinema halls

From the moment they lean back in their seat, cinemagoers should be able to catch their breath and forget about their everyday worries. An agreeable, clean room climate is ensured by the Trotec high-performance dehumidifiers of the TTK series.

A cinema audience essentially wants one thing: to unwind and get away from the daily routine by succumbing to a world of fiction. Loud voices and unwelcome sources of light can be just as annoying as an inappropriately tempered auditorium and a poor air quality. Precisely because it is difficult to properly ventilate cinema facilities, they are usually equipped with powerful air-conditioning systems. But they fail to simultaneously cope with the detrimental humidity as well. If the air is too moist, upholstered seats quickly become musty and the foul odours can only be cleared out with great difficulty. Cinema operators should not let it come to that and instead rely on an effective dehumidification. The mobile Trotec condenser dryers of the TTK series ensure a lasting feel-good climate in cinema halls. Swift, powerful, reliable – so Trotec!

With hundreds of people sitting in the same room for several hours, you will soon run out of fresh air. That is what would be in store for the audience if operators didn’t count on a comprehensive ventilation system. As a rule, though, an air conditioner cannot protect you from an excessive humidity, which is always imminent in the cinema. After all, movie fans spend several hours in a closed room breathing – and perspiring. The extent of damage caused by too much moisture becomes apparent in many older buildings that are not always equipped with state-of-the-art technology. Upholstery becomes damp and musty, the bad smells cling to carpets and curtains. Quite frequently mould stains develop on the wallpaper and mildew erupts in the corners; both can only be remedied by extensive restoration work.

Feel-good climate for film enthusiasts

In these circumstances it can become an ordeal to sit in the audience – which is something every cinema operator should endeavour to prevent. The members of the audience will only be completely at ease and willing to come back for another show if you can ensure the right room climate. In addition to a sophisticated air-conditioning system, cinema operators should therefore focus on an effective dehumidification system. That way, people will get the feeling of comfort they paid for at the counter. Trotec’s mobile condenser dryers of the TTK series provide the ideal solution for fighting a too high humidity level. The high-performance dryers can be taken into operation before and after every cinema show. In next to no time you can see to an agreeable feel-good climate and fresh air.

Allows the audience to breathe freely

This is how the TTK condenser dryers operate: In only a few minutes the portable power packs can be carried into the cinema and connected. The modern devices oppose the detrimental humidity flexibly and vigorously. They suck in the damp room air, which is then cooled down within the device to a point where the humidity is condensed and collected. And: Since the TTK condenser dryers come with an extremely high dehumidification performance, Trotec engineers designed the devices with an external water drain. Depending on model and type of application, you can choose from various options: For instance, the external collection container is available with or without submerged pump. But continuous drying by use of an automatic condensate pump is also possible.

Different models, same objective

Regardless of which model you put to use in the cinema: With the tried and tested Trotec technology all that remains for the members of the audience is agreeably fresh air. Furniture, walls and other interior equipment will not be affected. There are no unnecessary accessories, no superfluous installations: With the TTK pro series Trotec banks on prime technology and reliability in the matter of dehumidification at a reasonable rate. All models are not only highly resilient, but also completely maintenance-free and thanks to their virtually indestructible steel sheet construction they survive all applications unscathed.

Further application examples for air dehumidification

  • Environmental simulation climate chamber

    In climatic chambers and wind tunnels three factors need to be simulated at the best possible rate: air temperature, wind strength and humidity. For the latter, the automotive industry needs dehumidifiers, which also perform well at dew points below 0°C, as well as high-performance desiccant dehumidifiers.

  • Dehumidification in tents

    When preparing a tent or another type of temporary accommodation, good room conditions are essential. This applies particularly to makeshift dwellings accommodating large numbers of people. This can be tent cities or container villages for asylum seekers, tent camps for youth groups, tents used as a place to sleep at large events, and also containers serving as a temporary home for seasonal...

  • Drying hygroscopic bulk material

    Varying and too high humidity values can ruin the pourability of powders and granules – and thus entail high consequential costs. In order for hygroscopic bulk material not to go lumpy nor to block hauling paths, the entire air in the chemical and pharmaceutical production must be pre-dried. Using adsorption dryers of the TTR series that's no problem.

  • Drying after silo cleaning

    After the cleaning of storage containers and silos you have to count on them to be fully dried for new bulk material to be protected against moisture from the beginning. And since drying can be effected in a quick and economical manner, we advise decision makers from the chemical and pharmaceutical industry to consider our high-performance dryers of the TTR series.

  • Drying pellets

    Who turns his back on proper air conditioning for production and storage facilities risks serious damage to the product. This is also true for the manufacturing of pellets. The biofuel is particularly susceptible to excessive humidity values. For the untreated raw wood withdraws the humidity from the air and absorbs it. With devastating consequences for both the customer and the manufacturer:...

  • Dehumidification in hotels

    A suitable room climate is a prerequisite for the well-being of hotel guests. If the air in the room is too warm or humid, it appears to be stale and muggy. Often damages appear at the building structure and interior within a short period of time. Wallpaper will be dotted with mould stains, curtains and clothes as well as linen become damp and musty and – if it comes to the worst – mildew runs...

  • Dehumidification in indoor ice-skating rinks

    Due to the difference in temperature between air and the icy surface, condensation inevitably forms in every ice rink – especially when humid air keeps flowing in from outside through the refrigeration system. The solution against dripping water on the ice and against damage to property constitutes a dehumidifier. It prevents condensation in the offing.
