DriSteem Hosting Webinar on Humidification Systems for Universities  

Eden Prairie, MN - May 17, 2021 - DRI-STEEM Corporation (DriSteem), the leading manufacturer of humidification, evaporative cooling, and water treatment products, announced today that they will be hosting a free webinar, which will focus on humidification systems for universities. The webinar is scheduled for May 26, 2021 at 10:30 AM CST.  It will be presented by David Baird, DriSteem Senior Applications Manager. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our lives completely. It is not the first virus to threaten students, faculty, and staff, and it certainly won't be the last. As we look towards reopening universities, there is a need to find ways to mitigate the spread of viruses beyond just simple cleaning and disinfecting. Studies show that maintaining the indoor relative humidity level between 40 and 60% RH creates a healthier environment, decreasing the amount and infectivity of viruses in the air, resulting in fewer respiratory infections among building occupants.

This webinar will take a campus-wide view of all the ways humidification benefits  university environments by protecting people, materials, and processes. From living and classroom spaces to critical laboratory environments, to sports facilities and performance halls, the investment in properly controlled humidification pays back in many ways. Topics that will be covered include:

  • Why humidification is important
  • The many roles of humidity on campus
  • Scientific studies
  • Employing humidification to help reduce the COVID-19 impact
  • Practical considerations for providing 40-60% RH in university buildings

“Now more than ever, we feel it is critical to offer this webinar to facility directors at Universities and colleges to provide them a better understanding of the importance of humidification systems in a collegiate setting,” said Valerie Bradt, Communications Manager at DriSteem.
