Textiles Humidification Systems
The textile industry understands that the integrity of its products is essential. When fibers and fabrics are in their best condition, they offer strength and comfort. However, because they are hygroscopic — meaning they release and absorb moisture from the surrounding air — textiles are inherently sensitive to changes in relative humidity. During low humidity conditions, the fabric will release moisture. This causes it to become weaker, affecting elasticity and tensile strength.
Equally troublesome for processing these products is static. The lack of moisture content in the air and in the material itself will increase electrical resistance. This allows 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. All of these factors add up to make a textile humidifier a crucial piece of equipment for any manufacturer in this sector.
Using a textile humidification system 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 creates a downward flow of the air. This allows for a cleaner and healthier working environment for employees.
The many benefits of the GoFog™ textile humidification system include:
- Maintains proper moisture content, increasing tensile strength and reducing waste. With a consistent level of water droplets, fibers have the conditions they need to be at their best quality during production.
- Eliminates static electricity. Humidification systems for the textile industry do more than improve products — they also increase safety. Workers and equipment are protected from electrical discharges when static is not allowed to build on the production line.
- Provides dust suppression, making a cleaner and healthier working environment. Employees have less respiratory ailments with fewer particulates in the environment. This may lead to increased productivity.
- Improves product quality and production speed. Manufacturers in this market want consumers to trust in the integrity of what they make. Our systems could help them guarantee that.
