Dehumidifying Moist Air - Dehumidification Systems -

Latent Cooling

High efficiency Air Conditioner and Dehumidifier systems will reduces the level of humidity which has various health risks and bringing you fresh clean dry air while substantially reducing the elements that cause mold and mildew to grow inside homes, offices and warehouses.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) states, “In some cases, indoor mold growth may not be obvious. It is possible that mold may be growing on hidden surfaces, such as the back side of dry wall, wallpaper, or paneling, the top of ceiling tiles, the underside of carpets and pads, etc. Possible locations of hidden mold can include pipe chases and utility tunnels (with leaking or condensing pipes), walls behind furniture (where condensation forms), condensate drain pans inside air handling units, porous thermal or acoustic liners inside ductwork, or roof materials above ceiling tiles (due to roof leaks or insufficient insulation). You may suspect hidden mold if a building smells moldy, but you cannot see the source. Read more...

If the temperature on the cold surface is lower than the dew point temperature - tDP - of the humid air, vapor in the air will condensate on the surface. Latent heat - the vapor - is removed from the humid air.

The process can be expressed in the Mollier diagrams above. The air cools in the direction of point C, which is the intersection point of the cold surface temperature (the cooling surface dew point temperature or the apparatus dew-point - tADP) and the saturation line.
