Humidity: a growing issue?

14 September 2020

The UK has been hit with more heatwaves and subsequent storms this summer and this has led to a growing need for the food and beverage sector to have appropriate dehumidifiers in place to remove moisture from the air to inhibit the growth of moulds or fungi. Other challenges include products absorbing excess moisture and reduced hygiene levels. 

According to Aggreko, many companies use heaters to remove damp areas which results in inefficiencies or product spoilage. “While heaters may appear to work, they simply move the moisture around the room, rather than removing it from the atmosphere,” said Mark Sketheway, moisture control development manager at Aggreko.

The moisture control division of Aggreko is now able to advise process and plant managers who face a range of humidity-related challenges affecting the food production process and helping them to take a more targeted approach with specific sector challenges, for example those associated with dairy or meat processing.
