Cold Storage Humidity Unit

Cold storage humidifier developed by TIMFOG ENGINEERING took its place among our other products as the first patented product of our company. It is the product of an approximately four-year study and it is developed for industrial humidity control in cold storages.

Cooling and humidification systems used today operate by directly spraying water especially to air or ground or by passing the air through an aqueous medium by means of a fan. In addition to those, also centrifugal type humidifiers are used. In high-pressure humidification systems placed in front of the evaporator, problems occur such as deterioration of the quality of products due to the water droplets falling on them, continuing water dripping from the nozzles after the system is turned off, separation at the connection points as a result of freezing at the water pipes due to low temperature.

In case the centrifugal-type humidifiers are used, there are problems such as insufficient capacity of the existing systems in cold storages, the systems to be expensive and cannot be connected to central cold room automation, and they cannot be monitored centrally. This newly developed product consist of the indoor unit in the environment to be humidified and the humidifier device outdoor unit. Outdoor unit water is pressurized (50-100 bars) in the high pressure water pump and sent to the indoor unit. The water shattered (in billions of 5-15 micron particles) at the nozzle manifold becomes cool fog, passes through the drop holder and sucked by means of the fans and is transmitted to the desired environment in a state with up to 98% moisture but free of water droplets. It controls the equipment such as fan-heater-pump-electric motor by means of the electronic board on the outdoor unit, ambient humidity sensor, indoor unit humidity control panel together with a software. Large cold storages can be controlled centrally and independently by connecting multiple indoor units to the outdoor unit. This system developed especially for multi-storage systems can control with a central control panel, each cold storage independent from each other by means of a software custom-developed for cold storages.

In the Timfog fogging network stainless steel pipes and fittings that can withstand pressures of 100 bars and more are used. High-pressure hoses are used as main line connections. Each of the fogging line, nozzles, fittings and nozzle bodies are made of stainless steel. Press fittings are used in Timfog cold storage systems. Press fittings made of 316 stainless steel, enable reliable and long-lasting connections and also eliminates the possibility of separation from connection points at the  pipe network during extreme (cold-hot) temperature fluctuations. The connections between the indoor unit and the outdoor unit are provided with hydraulic hoses resistant up to 200 bars. Connection is a bushed coupling which is extremely easy to use, and if desired, by removing its connection, each indoor unit can be used independently for another storage. Timfog cold storage Evaporative Air Conditioning systems enable the moisture obtained with the technique developed by timfog engineers to be spread in the cold storage by abundant air. Cables with special resistance, prevent the water in the pipes and nozzles from freezing. The capacity of the device to be placed in the storage are projected based on the size of the cold storage and the type of the product and designed as ready to use packed products. 

Main units consist of four parts:

1-Pump unit 
2-Filter and water group 
3-Electricity Board 
4-Collector group arranged based on the number of rooms. 
Main units are designed and manufactured according to the fogging capacity determined based on the project. Depending on the size of the project, capacity choices from 1.3 liters up to 135 liters are available.

Cold Storage Control Panels: 
In multi-room cold storages, keeping each room at different moisture level is possible with timfog cold storage indoor unit automation system. Moisture obtained from a single main unit, is distributed by means of the control panel at the entrances of the rooms and the high-pressure solenoid valves on the collector connected to the panel, in order to create the desired humidity. Humidification automation operates based on the humidity sensor in the room.
