Humidification for paper processing
and storage

Even if reading has gone a little out of fashion, paper is still in demand as a raw material. Paper is required not only for newspapers and books, but also for parcels, packaging, insulating material, bank notes, and furniture. To avoid corrugated cardboard beds collapsing, to ensure packaging material provides safe protection, and so documents remain intact, paper and printed products must be stored and processed correctly.

Maximum precision and perfect humidity are required if newspapers are to be rattled off the
rotary offset press at 55 km/h.

Paper is hygroscopic

Hygroscopic materials are substances that can trap moisture in their cell structure.

At low humidity, the air extracts moisture from the materials, often damaging the cell structure and causing cracks to form.
