Textiles Humidification Systems

Textiles Humidification Systems

Being hygroscopic (releases and absorbs moisture from the surrounding air), textiles are inherently sensitive to changes in relative humidity. During low humidity conditions, the textile will release moisture which causes it to become weaker affecting elasticity and tensile strength.

Equally troublesome for textile processing is static. The lack of moisture content in the air and in the material itself will increase electrical resistance allowing static electricity to build which can discharge to machinery and even people. This also leads to the product sticking together which affects production time and quality.

Using textiles humidification systems by GoFog™ not only controls the desired relative humidity but also provides the secondary benefit of suppressing airborne dust and lint from the manufacturing process. The combination of the higher humidity adding weight to the particles and the evaporative cooling effect which creates a downward flow of the air, allows for a cleaner and healthier working environment for employees.

The many benefits of the GoFog™ textiles humidification systems include:

  • Maintains proper moisture content, increasing tensile strength and reducing waste.
  • Eliminate static electricity.
  • Provides dust suppression making a cleaner and healthier working environment.
  • Improves product quality and production speed.
