Humidification is simply the addition of water to air. However, humidity exerts a powerful influence on environmental and physiological factors. Improper humidity levels (either too high or too low) can cause discomfort for people and damage many kinds of equipment and materials. Conversely, the proper type of humidification equipment can help you achieve effective, economical and trouble-free control of humidity.

Dry air can cause a variety of costly, troublesome and sometimes dangerous problems, especially when you are processing or handling hygroscopic materials such as wood, paper, textile fibers, leather or chemicals. Dry air or fluctuating humidity can cause serious production problems and/or material deterioration. Dry air can also adversely affect hygroscopic materials in museums, schools, banks, churches and office buildings.

In dry atmospheric conditions static electricity can interfere with efficient operation of production machinery, computers and other office machines. Where static-prone materials such as paper, films, computer disks and other plastics are handled, dry air aggravates the static problem. In potentially explosive environments, dry air and its resultant static electricity can be extremely dangerous.

Armstrong has been sharing know-how in humidification applications since 1938. Through the design, manufacturing and application of humidification equipment, Armstrong has led the way to countless savings in energy, time and money.

When it comes to improving humidification . . .
it starts with steam.

Armstrong’s improvements in steam humidification are fundamentally different. They begin not with the humidifier, but with the steam. Unlike units that simply disperse steam, Armstrong’s direct-steam humidifiers work with it, guiding it through the many steps of a carefully engineered process.

Electric steam humidifiers are used when a source of steam is not available. Electricity and water create steam at atmospheric pressure. Electrode-type units pass electrical current through water to provide proportional output. Using pure demineralized, deionized or distilled water alone will generally not provide sufficient conductivity for electrode units.

With revolutionary ionic bed technology

The Gas-Fired HumidiClean from Armstrong reduces operating costs, and its Ionic Bed Technology slashes costs even more by trimming the labor and downtime associated with cleaning humidifiers. The HumidiClean operates economically on natural gas or propane. It is adaptable to various water qualities, and service life cycle and tank drainage are field-adjustable. Here’s more good news: The HumidiClean is CSA-certified and CGA-approved.

Energy efficient, low maintenance, reliable, precisely controlled, and clean. Armstrong believes these five industry needs are priority for humidification systems. Since 1938, Armstrong has been a leading supplier of humidification solutions for corporate environments, museums, hospitals, universities, semiconductor manufacturing, and electronics manufacturing. Customers’ needs are constantly changing and while many of the humidification products are successful in providing desirable indoor air quality, Armstrong is committed to developing and engineering new technology to best suit our customers’ demands.

Atomization humidifiers offer the most energy efficient operation by reducing cooling load and water waste as well as reduced maintenance and improved reliability over other evaporative systems. Armstrong’s PressureFog™ and Cool-Fog® are high-quality industrial-grade atomizing humidification solutions that are suitable for a wide variety of environments and applications. 

Armstrong offers a number of specialized steam distribution methods to meet the requirements of widely varying applications.
