It will come as no surprise that swimming pool rooms are extremely humid, and with humidity comes the potential for unwanted microbial growth. With their high traffic and enclosed indoor swimming areas, swim schools are particularly prone to moisture buildup and the growth of mold and mildew. To ensure the health and safety of pool users, it is important to use dehumidifiers in swim school pool rooms.
Industrial and commercial dehumidifiers often operate in harsh or challenging environmental conditions, resulting in significant wear. Typically, these machines will have a working life of 9–11 years, but this lifespan can be greatly reduced without the proper service. When regular maintenance has been neglected for too long or the equipment fails to keep up with expectations, an industrial dehumidifier may need to be replaced to restore optimal humidity conditions.
Poor indoor air quality (IAQ) poses numerous risks to the occupants of any building. Low-quality air negatively impacts occupant productivity and health. It also leads to uncomfortable work and living conditions and, when left unaddressed, has the potential to damage an overall building structure. Furthermore, poor indoor air quality can go against local building code standards for indoor air quality, leaving building owners open to lawsuits.
Dehumidification systems remove unwanted moisture from a building’s internal environment to help control its atmosphere’s relative humidity and dew point. In commercial applications, dehumidifiers help contribute to a pleasant work environment, aid in room temperature regulation, and help control condensation causing mold or mildew formation. In industrial applications, dehumidification systems aid in controlling your product’s moisture content, enable smooth process operations, and maximize production efficiency. Read More »
With the continued legalization of marijuana across the United States and Canada, cannabis growers are finding that their profit margins have begun to shrink. Rising competition from new cannabis growers has forced established suppliers to drive their prices down, leaving many wondering where they can make up for lost revenue.
Indoor swimming pools are ubiquitously known to enhance any home, hotel, or hospitality business by providing a sense of relaxation and comfort no matter what the season. However, all pool owners also understand the high level of maintenance required to keep any pool in optimal condition — including regular oxidations,vacuuming, and filter maintenance, even during the colder months.
The mission of Dehumidifier Corporation of America (DCA) has been to provide customers with high quality dehumidification systems solutions at competitive prices. That has been our primary goal since our founding in 1995.
DCA has always provided the highest quality brand name, off-the-shelf, non-proprietary dehumidifier components, easily obtained from any quality refrigeration distributor. This is especially important when it comes to the control system. DCA has never specified proprietary controls on any of our products. This allows repair technicians the advantage of sourcing controls and many other dehumidifier parts from their local supply house, as opposed to waiting for the factory to react.
Dehumidification plays a key role in the housekeeping maintenance of waste and fresh water treatment facilities. Metal surfaces such as holding, treatment and filtration tanks, pipes and pump room equipment are exposed to cold water that often brings their surface temperature below the room’s dew point temperature. When this happens, moisture forms on these surfaces causing rusting and corrosion.
During warm months, just about every location east of the Rocky Mountains feels the muggy effects of high dew points. The resulting high relative humidity produces a host of issues for businesses such as printing, machining, archive storage, food packaging, electronic component providers and clean rooms.
