For a continuous protection: dehumidification of appliance rooms

Dehumidifiers dry operating equipment and appliances and provide optimum protection during storage.

Proper protective equipment and perfectly functioning devices are indispensable for operations by the fire brigade and the THW. Protective suits, hoses and tubes must be absolutely leakproof. Tools such as spreader forceps and bolt cutters have to be in an immaculate condition, just like technical devices such as high-performance fans, cutting torches and headlights. In order to store the whole equipment safely after an operation, it has to be dried out professionally. This task is fulfilled by the high-performance dehumidifiers from Trotec. Quick and absolutely reliable.

During an operation, the firemen and THW staff have to work in rough conditions. Their uniforms, jackets and boots are soaked by extinguishing water, foam or, in case of a flood, by mud. Hoses, tubes and the entire technical equipment are affected as well. After an operation, the damp equipment is returned to the crew quarters and the appliance rooms. If the equipment is not dried professionally before storage, this may lead to the formation of mould and corrosion. Wearing the damp clothes for the next operation would constitute a considerable health risk for the crew. And: if the equipment material suffers from corrosion, it may, in the worst case, be unusable by the time the next emergency occurs.

Trotec dehumidifiers: after an operation is before an operation

It should be remembered that the equipment and devices are not so much affected during the operations themselves. The consequences of an improper storage, particularly the storage of damp objects, are far worse. Besides health risks and material break, this may result in high maintenance expenses. This is because the material affected by humidity has to be cleaned regularly and maintained in a particularly complex way.

The most reliable and most easy solution is the use of high-performance dehumidifiers both in the crew quarters and in the appliance room. Following the slogan "After an operation is before an operation", the high-performance dehumidifiers from Trotec ensure the health of the forces and the protection of their equipment. The condenser dryers of the DH series are particularly suited for such scenarios.

DH series: stationary solutions for all fields of application

In order to guarantee a permanent and professional material protection, dehumidifiers should be used both in the crew quarters and in the appliance rooms of the fire brigade and the THW. This way, not only suits and protective equipment but also technical devices and emergency vehicles are dried reliably and are ideally prepared for the next emergency. The condensation dehumidifiers of the DH series are suited for the use in all areas. With this series Trotec offers clever stationary solutions – including a choice of different performance classes. A stationary drying unit of the DH series, for example the model DH 60, can serve as a permanent additional auxiliary in the appliance room. This high-performance dehumidification unit guarantees a reliable operation even in large, unheated rooms. It operates on the condensation principle – like all devices of the DH series. Thanks to their corrosion-protected construction and their fully automatic low-maintenance operation, they are a perfect example of quick and economic drying. These power packs in the area of drying can be installed without difficulty in various environments and work perfectly both in crew quarters and in appliance rooms and garages.

Sophisticated drying systems thanks to the Trotec consultants

In order to be prepared for every operation in the best possible way, we recommend the installation of an optimal drying system around the operations centre. The employees of the Trotec industrial service lend their support in planning the necessary capacities and selecting the models.

  • Dehumidification in fertilizer storage facilities

    The production of hygroscopic materials in the chemical industry requires intuition and sure instincts. After all, the substances love water and readily absorb the moisture contained in the ambient air. And this can have disastrous economic consequences. As it binds water, the material starts sticking together and clumping, and may become unusable in the worst case. One example are fertilizers. If...

  • Dehumidification in wind turbine component depots

    In the construction phase of a wind turbine, the plant’s components are sometimes stored for months in very large depots such as halls or temporary storage tents prior to assembly. To prevent damage caused by corrosion or frost during storage, a sophisticated system for humidity regulation is necessary.

  • Dehumidification in drying rooms

    In the production of electronic equipment and semiconductors humidity can lead to electrostatic charge. For this reason, sensitive processing steps are being performed in cleanrooms and drying rooms. The mobile adsorption dryers of the TTR series are ideal for these high requirements during dehumidification.

  • Dehumidification in ships' holds

    There is only one remedy for mould, microbial contamination and corrosion on cargo and ship: to supply constantly dry air with a humidity suitable for the cargo into the ship’s hold. To achieve reliable results, the dehumidification system must have been planned professionally.

  • Dehumidification circuit board storages

    When storing printed circuit boards humidity can lead to electrostatic charge and patina formation or corrosion. Particularly suited for dehumidifying the PCB storage space are the mobile adsorption dryers of the TTR series – just as well as for other operating sectors in the electronics and semiconductor production.

  • Dehumidification dispatch & transport

    In the silo as well as during transport hygroscopic bulk material is endangered by humidity – this holds true for both the chemical and the pharmaceutical industry. Humidity continues to be a problem after production, because the products are mostly packed into damageable cardboard boxes with paper inserts. Therefore, dehumidification also plays a key role for storage, dispatch and transport.

  • Dry air storage

    The requirements in dry air storage are very much alike in many industries: Bacterial growth on foodstuffs, powders going lumpy, corrosion on metal parts – all can be prevented, when the relative humidity is constantly kept below 50 %. A value of 70 % RH suffices as mould protection. The dehumidifiers of the TTR series along with the matching data loggers represent dehumidification systems which...

  • Dehumidification in timber yards

    In the past, when storing wood it had been rather a challenge to keep the moisture of furniture wood below the required 9 per cent, for example: If no dehumidifiers are used, seasonal temperature differences and fluctuations in air humidity cause the wood moisture to rise. This considerably affects timber quality and results in problems during processing and even in reject.

  • Dehumidification in wine cellars

    The different temperatures at which the wines are fermented are usually set by the winemaker via the thermostats integrated in the tanks. But the use of dehumidifiers is still indispensable. If the humidity level is low, particularly red wines can develop in the best way. Furthermore, a drying device is able to fight condensation efficiently. Trotec has a series of high-performance drying devices...

  • Dehumidifying when storing raw tobacco

    The refinement of raw tobacco is considered a fine art. Far from the major tobacco industry smaller factories produce special mixtures with highly diverse flavours. But here, too, the firms usually have to purchase the raw tobacco, coming from many parts of the world, by container load. And since in most cases the product is not processed all at once, the tobacco leaves have to be stored away...
