Humidification in the Paper and Printing industry

misting sa Humidification in the Paper and Printing industry

Constant and consistent control of the HUMIDITY levels in all stages of the paper processing and printing industries is critical for optimum results. To maintain the moisture content of the paper and to ensure proper operation of the equipment, HUMIDITY levels between 40% and 55% are required.
By maintaining these HUMIDITY levels,

  • The paper quality and the finished product are improved
  • Dimensional stability of the paper are increased
  • Optimum ink transfer
  • Less paper jams or breaks
  • Reduced paper curl and cracking
  • Maintaining maximum equipment speed
  • Shrinkage and static electricity are also eliminated

What is the best way to achieve the required HUMIDITY levels

With the use of Misting SA’s series of speciality  MIST nozzles placed in a line around the perimeter of an area, or by using specially designed MISTING rings, attached to box / oscillating fans, when connected to a high pressure MISTING system pump, water is forced through the specialty nozzles and quickly atomized to droplets as small as  (5 microns).
When MISTING systems are placed inside an enclosed area (such as a factory), the billions of droplets that are produced will initially provide cooling as the droplets evaporate. However, if the air exchange is limited, the MISTING system will continue to increase the HUMIDITY level within the structure. HUMIDITY levels as high as 90+% are possible. This unique characteristic of all MISTING systems makes them ideal for both cooling and HUMIDIFICATION.

What components are needed for a misting system?

The required components for a misting system includes
Misting SA High pressure tubing (Nylon, Stainless steel or Copper)
Misting SA misting nozzles
Misting SA misting spray body
Misting SA Filtration Housing and cartridge
Misting SA Pressure Switch
Misting SA Solenoid Valves (low and high pressure)
Misting SA Anti drip valve
Misting SA high pressure misting pumps (various flow rates)
Misting SA Humidity and temperature controllers * Optional
Misting SA ventilation equipment. * Optional

* Additional components (such as wall mounted fans, extractor fans, Humidity and Temperature controllers) may be required for custom designed solutions.
