DRAABE Says High-Pressure Technology is Replacing Other Air Humidification Systems
DRAABE, a world-leading manufacturer of humidification systems, announced that high-pressure technology, like its TurboFog system, is increasingly replacing other air humidification systems. “Constant optimum air humidity is the most important climatic parameter for high print quality and trouble free production,” said Wafik Kouchouk, DRAABE’s director of sales. “During the winter months, in particular, air humidity in printing shops often drops to critical levels, thus producing paper warpage, electrostatic charging, restricted machine runability, and production stops that incur avoidable costs frequently associated with an insufficient level of air humidity. Some printing shops allow the air humidity problem to persist while others use a variety of different systems and technologies.” These range from rotary atomizers, steam air humidifiers, ultrasonic atomizers, air washers in A/C systems to compressed air and high-pressure nozzle systems.
