Why is humidity control important for textile processing?

Dry air can result in textile fibres becoming fragile and breaking as they are run through the looms. This can result in downtime and slower productions due to the stoppages. Regulating relative humidity eliminates problems due to micro-dust and “flocks” becoming caught in the looms.

Preventing low humidity reduces static problems, making machines speeds quicker and the materials more manageable. Low humidity can also cause fabric to shrink, leading to inconsistency when cutting and fitting – extremely important for example in the carpet industry where maintaining dimensions is crucial.

The free cooling effect of adiabatic humidification removes some of the heat generated by the looms and reduces high factory temperatures, making spray humidifiers a popular solution in textile processing.

Benefits include:

  • Improve strength and consistency of textile fibres
  • Reduce static and machine stoppages
  • Improve dimensional stability of fabric
  • Free cooling effect reduces high factory temperatures
  • Reduce fly and fire potential
