In liquid and solid form, moisture can wreak havoc on food processing
systems. Liquid desiccant spray systems maintain moisture in a vapor
phase and eliminate the hazards posed by ice and high humidity.
Traditional refrigeration systems use a hot-gas defrost cycle to melt ice off the evaporator coil. As the coil heats and the ice defrosts, heat and moisture are reintroduced into the space. Defrosted water that remains on the coil creates an environment for potential microbial growth. Also, ice can form on floors, creating hazardous working conditions. Systems must be defrosted and sanitized on a regular basis, particularly in high humidity areas, and during this cycle, manufacturing must be halted.
