Both temperature and humidity affect workers comfort, equipment, and manufacturing process.
Low humidity in the electronic industry means potential accumulation of static electricity, which when discharged can damage the electronic components or guide to spontaneous shutdown of equipment.
On the other hand, if the humidity is kept too high, the moisture may increase the conductivity of permeable insulators leading to malfunction.
Humidifiers are used to keep the environment typically above 35%rh, which is the minimum level required to prevent static build-up during the manufacturing process. Humidification is typically required during the winter period when the weather is very cold outside and heating inside dries the air.
Products such as humiSteam and heaterSteam are often the preferred choice owing to their low cost and precise control.
