Air conditioning systems dry out the air, often compromising manufacturing processes and making workers and guests uncomfortable. Optiguide's Controlled Humidity Solutions work two ways to make commercial air conditioning systems more comfortable and more efficient. Adding water vapor to circulating air improves comfort and is necessary for many manufacturing processes. And for energy savings on hot days, applying "dry fog" to the system's condenser coils reduces the load on the coils and saves energy costs.
The Tabor FogRight Atomizer uses supersonic compressed air to create micro droplets of water as a true "dry fog." The droplets evaporate into the air before they enter the A/C ducts, or the atomizers can be placed inside large duct systems.
In A/C for manufacturing processes and factory comfort: the Tabor FogRight Atomizer is installed in an Air Treatment Unit or in ducts to add water vapor to the air, before or after cooling. Custom solutions are available for all industrial and commercial systems.
For energy saving in extreme heat: Conventional air conditioners can fail due to excessive loads on the condensing coil. Attempts to solve this problem by spraying the coil with water only causes calcification and deterioration of the coil. But the Optiguide Tabor FogRight provides "dry fog" to cool the air around the coils without wetness on the coils, thus maintaining heat transfer efficiency and reducing operating costs. And since the coils stay dry, there is no calcification.
Using Optiguide's expertise in temperature and humidity sensors, the Tabor FogRight system can be controlled to maintain pre-set humidity, or to pre-cool coils only when the A/C unit is under extra heavy load.
Saves Energy: In warm climates, the “dry fog" system is the energy efficient alternative to steam systems. It saves the energy used to heat the water, and the extra cooling needed to cool the steam.
Control Processing: Manufacturing processes need accurate and controlled humidity for optimal results. Since air-cooling always dries the air, adding humidity gives complete control for all needs.
Increases Comfort: Adding humidity in air-conditioned buildings makes workers and visitors more comfortable and invigorated.
Low Maintenance: With its large 1.5 mm orifice, the Tabor FogRight nozzle won't clog like pinhole foggers do. And with no moving parts in the fogger, maintenance is minimal.
Special Needs: The Optiguide system can also be used for disinfecting the air conditioning system and room areas, or even for adding scents to the air.
Some tests have shown that humidity systems can reduce the EER (Energy Efficiency Rating) by up to 55% and power usage (in kW) by up to 33% depending on the climatic conditions. U.S.A utility companies are testing the efficiency of the systems in varying conditions.
Optiguide has installed humidity solutions in air conditioning systems at leading Israeli manufacturers: Tefron, Gibor, Iscar, Tefen Molding, Modgal and others.
