Humidification for hospitals

Viruses and bacteria spread more easily without humidity control

Viruses and bacteria can spread more easily through the air when the humidity is too high or too low and this also applies to hospitals. Treating patients in contaminated air would be counterproductive, therefore it is of the utmost importance that hospitals do everything in their power to halt the spread of bacteria.


Patients recuperate more quickly in the right humidity


The correct humidity can hinder the spread of viruses. Hospitals have two options when looking at humidification systems to control the spread of bacteria and viruses:

Adiabatic humidification | safe and energy-efficient

We understand fully the importance of safe humidification and the risk of Legionella. The quality of adiabatic humidification is nowadays so technologically advanced that the risks of a Legionella contamination have disappeared. Adiabatic humidification is also more durable and energy-efficient than steam humidification.

  • Low energy use

  • Minimal maintenance

  • No need to purchase a steam kettle

Steam humidification | designed for operating theatres

Adiabatic humidification is safe but we see in practice that for critical areas such as operating theatres the choice is often for steam humidification. We will be happy to advise you in making your selection.

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.
