and air conditioners. However, one of
the most cost-effective ways to combat
condensation involves the use of energyeficient
equipment many facilities
already own: fans.
Airlow from overhead fans reduces
condensation by:
* Reducing stagnant, cool air: Air molecules
don't have to touch a cold surface
to fall below the dew point and deposit
moisture. Cold surfaces have a boundary
layer of cool air around them. It's in
this boundary layer of air that temperatures
fall below the dew point and condensation
forms. Air movement generated
by overhead fans can disperse this
layer of stagnant air and reduce the real
estate in which condensation forms.
* Raising surface temperature: Cold
surfaces in warm rooms eventually
warm due to natural convection (the
transfer of heat energy from the air
into the cold surface). Fans speed up
this process by exposing the cold surface
to warm air quickly and in greater
volumes. To prevent condensation,
the air being blown over the surface
must be warmer than the dew point
prior to the arrival of a warm, moist
weather front. Heaters may be used
to achieve this, but even the heat from
equipment, lights and people, which
naturally rises to the ceiling in a tall
building, can be " recycled " and used to
prevent condensation.
* Reducing and stabilizing humidity:
Many factors affect indoor humidity
levels, including perspiring occupants,
evaporation from sinks and
mop buckets, and steam-generating
processes. Throughout the course of
the day, the air in a warehouse can
become more humid than the air
outside. In this case, fans-in conjunction
with natural or mechanical ventilation-can
replace humid air with
drier air from outside.
* Drying moisture: When a condensation
event can't be prevented,
elevated airlow can quickly dry the
water that forms on surfaces, raising
surface temperature faster than
would naturally occur.
Aside from fans, another way to keep
condensation in check involves the
installation of monitoring systems that
maintain the right amount of airlow
in warehouse facilities. This type of
technology helps to predict weather
occurrences and adjusts fans and heating
systems so that warehouse managers
can mitigate condensation events.
Problem prevention
Proper airlow can help to prevent or
reduce costly and dangerous condensation
conditions inside of warehouses.
By utilizing fans and/or automatic
monitoring systems within a facility,
condensation levels can be controlled to
preserve the longevity of investments.
