"Green" approach to dehumidification inside water treatment plants

Architecture & Building Services, Insights and Resources, Wastewater

ABSTRACT

In most water treatment plants, temperature and humidity control is crucial. When moisture condenses onto cold pipes, valves and pumps, a number of destructive effects can occur. High humidity can cause metal corrosion, paint deterioration and failure of electrical components. Moist locations also act as breeding grounds for bacteria, fungus and molds. To prevent excessive condensation, a dedicated dehumidification system is essential.
