Cooling for cold storage

The depreciation of goods in cold storage is a common problem. It occurs because the air in the cold store is very dry and so draws moisture from the goods themselves. The problem is easily solved by using humidification.


Preserve the value of chilled produce with the correct humidity


Almost all goods that require chilling also contain moisture. If the air in the cold store or refrigerated unit is too dry the air will absorb the moisture from the goods, drying them out. This can be prevented by keeping the air at the correct humidity. This stops the goods from drying out and thereby they retain their value.

  • Reduce weight loss

  • Extend the shelf-life

  • Minimal to no reduction in quality

“Our systems produce such a fine mist that the whole storage area can be humidified without the goods getting wet.”

Lower energy bills included!


Our experts advise using adiabatic humidification in cold stores. This is a form of humidification that uses cold water, whereby the air temperature cools as the moisture content rises. This is a free energy saving for the cooling system of 0.68 KW per litre of water.

Trust in our capabilities


In many cold stores the value of the goods in leaking away. As Dutch market leader in custom-built humidification systems we have plugged those leaks for more than 2,000 clients since 1991.

Wood is sensitive to moisture levels. It shrinks, warps, and cracks. A Cumulus installation creates a stable humidity. That is essential for our production process and our KOMO certification.
