Zoos

High levels of humidity if left unchallenged can be a major problem in an indoor moisture-laden environment, such as zoo exhibits. Water increases air humidity, and can eventually lead to mould and structural damage. Calorex can provide tailored dehumidification solutions for every type of zoo exhibit.

How a Calorex dehumidifier works
The high-performance dehumidifiers recirculate the air and physically remove moisture from it. This alleviates the need to continuously reheat incoming air. Not only that, the units convert energy taken out of the room as moisture to provide useful heat to warm the room, accelerating the drying process.

Effective dehumidification provides maximum protection in museums and historic buildings where priceless exhibits and artefacts are stored. For example, if the relative humidity is too high, condensation can form on surfaces and mould and rot can set in, and the rising and falling of humidity levels can cause degradation. This can, however, be avoided by maintaining the relative humidity at both correct level, and importantly at a stable level. Their functionality and easy operation make them ideal for large period properties, museums and archives and anywhere where preservation is vital.

Cost savings
Typically, as a by-product of the dehumidification process, for every unit of energy that a Calorex dehumidifier consumers, it will convert 2.5 times this amount to useable heat. The potential energy savings are huge. In fact, compared to using heating to try and control humidity levels, cost savings of 500% are not unusual. The units have built in humidity control, so will never waste energy when the correct humidity is reached, and there is no possibility of drying out the space too much.

Installation
Calorex dehumidifiers have a flexible design and are fully packaged, easy to install and can operate efficiently over an ambient air temperature range of between 0 and 40°C.

Calorex manufactures dehumidifiers in a range of sizes from the smaller wall unit to the large floor standing industrial sized system. Whatever you need, Calorex will have the solution.

All products are supported by an in-house applications department and nationwide service network.
