Maintaining controlled environmental conditions in cleanrooms and laboratories is critical for success. However, the high rate of air changes needed to control the air quality and keep these areas sterile can cause fluctuations in relative humidity (RH), which in turn causes problems with equipment, chemicals, and measurements.

Static electricity discharges caused by low or fluctuating RH levels can damage valuable equipment and disrupt critical processes. When organic and inorganic chemicals absorb and release moisture from the air, the result can be unwanted chemical reactions and changes to the chemicals. Other materials are often affected by low humidity levels and RH fluctuations as well, making precise dimensional measurements difficult.

DriSteem humidification systems are an essential part of the clinical laboratory HVAC system to provide protection against the issues caused by fluctuating and low relative humidity levels.
