Dry air for the wet industry

Air purification, dehumidification and heating: Process optimization in maritime operational and cargo facilities

With mobile and stationary devices the Trotec Group also ensures process optimization and clean working conditions for the maritime sector: In cargo and maritime operational facilities plenty of dust is raised – enough to rock the boat? The air needs to be cleaned, dehumidified and heated and its quality be checked by means of measuring devices.

Trotec solutions in terms of dehumidification, heating, measurement technology and air cleaning have been established in several sectors for many a year, e.g. the food, chemical or automotive industry. The ensuing knowledge and experiences can also be applied to the requirements for climate conditioning in the maritime sector. For here, too, Trotec as climate expert with mobile and stationary solutions enables process optimization and more efficient working.

Dehumidifying, heating and cleaning – the ideal machines for the maritime sector

For the typical task in a shipyard – namely a high dehumidification performance even at low temperatures – Trotec provides the desiccant dehumidifier TTR 1400. This industrial desiccant dehumidifier dehumidifies up to 177 kg in 24 hours even under rough conditions. With the heat recovery integrated as standard and the electronic energy management all TTR desiccant dehumidifiers rank among the most economic devices of their kind. In contrast to condensation dehumidifiers, the desiccant principle not only enables a reliable and high dehumidification performance even at low temperatures, but above all also the achievement of lower dew points. When the dew points do not have to be quite as low, a condenser dryer for use in ship building, shipyards or the area of cargo is also suitable. For instance the industrial condenser dryer DH 160, which has a dehumidification performance of up to 250 litres per day.

The proper temperature also plays an important role when working in the maritime sector. Particularly well suited for the maritime sector is the high-performance electric heating unit TEH 400. It can be controlled electronically in terms of air volume and temperature in multiple stages and is designed for air transport distances of up to 100 metres hose length. Professional devices for air purification not only protect employees, but also other devices and the ship's coating surface from dust deposits and inclusions. Devices such as the air cleaner TAC 6500 come with the required capacity for dust class H. Whether dehumidifying, heating or cleaning: The monitoring of air quality can be ensured with different measuring devices and data loggers of our measuring technology range.
