Dehumidifiers in the Defence Industry

Desiccant Dehumidifiers in the Defence Industry

In the early 70’s, NATO organisations began to use desiccant dehumidifiers to protect valuable military equipment against corrosion and degradation caused by airborne moisture.

For storage applications, dehumidification is far more effective and less expensive to operate than heating. Even at a constant temperature, relative humidity can fluctuate wildly and the correct conditions for storage are seldom being achieved.

Our desiccant dehumidifiers use lower energy than heating and operate effectively and efficiently at all ambient temperatures – even below freezing

Controlled humidity environments (CHE’s) have now become standard practice for most militaries worldwide.Inactive ships, tanks, aircraft, weapons and supplies are maintained in a state of readiness by dry air storage, thus providing an increased combat readiness.

In CHE’s there is negligible material degradation. Electrical and sensitive electronic equipment is kept in good working order and ‘mean time between failure’ (MTBF) rates have been significantly increased.

As equipment in CHE’s is constantly protected against the effects of moisture, inspection and maintenance routines can be adjusted accordingly, resulting in savings both on time and human resources.
