Cooling in the tobacco industry
Most tobacco machinery produces not only the fine smoking materials as intended, but also unintended warmth. However many companies have discovered that the adiabatic humidification used to humidify the production hall also gives free cooling!
Lower energy bills with adiabatic humidification
It’s really quite simple: adiabatic humidification expels cold water mist into the production hall, which also cools the temperature of the air. For each litre of water absorbed there is a cooling effect of 0.68 kW. This cooling effect is a free bonus of adiabatic humidification.
Indirect adiabatic cooling (air handling units)
The water can also be misted into the return air stream of an air handling unit. A thermal wheel or crossflow exchanger transfers the cold to the supply air stream. This is known as indirect adiabatic cooling. Many companies have been profiting for years by using this form of cooling in their production halls.
We take care of everything
Our specialists are trained to focus on every last detail. The cooling generated must be greater than the internal heat load in the ventilation space. The saturation point must never reach 100% as this will cause precipitation. And importantly, the installation must be Legionella safe.
Attention to details such as these are our highest priority. This is why our experts co-wrote the ISSO 55.3 Publication and why we are accredited with TUV VDI 6022 certification (hygienically working systems). We take care of these details so that you don’t have to worry about them.
Trust in our capabilities
Many tobacco companies could save extra on their cooling by using adiabatic humidification. We are the Dutch market leader in custom-built humidification systems, which is why since 1991 more than 2,000 clients have chosen Cumulus.
