When the humidity is too low the threads and fibres rubbing together cause a static charge to build up. This in turn causes the fibres to stick together, affecting the production process. The elasticity of the threads is reduced as the air draws the moisture from the fibres, which in turn causes more frequent yarn breakages. As the threads continue to dry out the products may even shrink so that the sizing is no longer correct. Further, static discharge may occur which, as well as being unpleasant, causes delays in production and is a fire hazard.
Many problems can easily be avoided by the use of a humidification system. By adding moisture to the air, the threads no longer dry out or stick together and electrostatic discharge is avoided. Humidification provides the following advantages:
