Dehumidification and Purification Using Absorption Air Conditioning

Absorption air conditioning offers cheaper dehumidification. The system is invaluable in processes in which air temperature, humidity and decontamination are important. In addition to dehumidifying the air, the system removes gasses and solid particles from the air. Virtually all germs and microorganisms that are present in the intake air are killed by the system. Finally, absorption air conditioning also offers a long-lasting solution with low energy costs.

There are many different air conditioning systems on the market. The best known is condensation dehumidification. This method first cools the air down to the temperature at which vapour present in the air starts to condense (100 per cent relative humidity). Subsequently, the air is heated again to the desired temperature. Thus, this process involves two stages. In this system, the dew-point temperature at which moisture starts to condense is determined by the temperature of the cooling fluid. This requires rather a lot of energy.

Customising the Cold Chain

World Courier

Of all the statistics emerging around the global pharmaceutical industry this year, two big numbers capture the attention of both manufacturers and their logistics partners: $248 billion, the amount the “BRIC” nations (Brazil, Russia, India and China) are poised to account for in pharmaceutical sales for by 2016; and $8 billion, the amount global pharma will spend on cold chain logistics in 2014. Why are these two numbers so noteworthy? They demonstrate that as R&D goes, so goes logistics. As products evolve to meet demands for more targeted therapies, demand for more targeted logistics solutions grows as well. And that means a need for customization for everything from clinical trial samples to finished product.
