Dehumidifiers in Ships & Oil Platforms
Combined with the aggressive nature of salt, humidity is a major cause of rust and corrosion to marine structures. It can dramatically reduce the lifetime of machinery and seriously affect the reliability of electrical and electronic equipment. While it may not always be practical or necessary to protect equipment in constant use, dehumidification should be considered during lay-up or refit.
Machinery spaces, empty tanks and holds, accommodation, offices and other unused spaces can be protected from corrosion by using our drying systems. Using our dehumidifiers inside sealed steel structures is an excellent alternative to surface treatments. An air dryer system costs only a fraction of that used to regularly blast and paint such structures. As long as the relative humidity is controlled, corrosion can be eradicated – irrespective of temperature.
