With greater or lesser scale, the storage process always presents some degree of complexity. Dust and humidity, for example, affect both goods as a whole and pallets. As warehouses are enclosed environments, they lack ventilation, and suspended particles are more present in the air with greater intensity.

Temperature, humidity, and dirt can render pallets unusable. Pallets are crates, generally made of wood, although they can also be made of metal or plastic, used for load movement. It is the base for the load where the forklift fits.
The advantage lies in the practicality of distribution and the height of the shelves. However, dirt, softening, and mold (fungi) are some of the elements that damage them and prevent their commercialization or long-term use. Wood is a hygroscopic material, meaning it easily absorbs moisture.
Additionally, the material is vulnerable to infestations of microorganisms, such as mold and mildew. In addition to the effects on wood, stored materials can also suffer from the damage of humidity.
Products inside cardboard boxes and plastic bags can incur significant losses due to high humidity, especially if they are food items. Food products require a specific humidity level; otherwise, it will cause losses for consumers.
In addition to food, these products can include medications, clothing, furniture, electronics, products, and medications for animals, among others. Pests are the major culprits of physical losses, which can be fatal for a company. Grains and seeds have a positive characteristic as they can be stored for a longer time, provided there are effective prevention and combat conditions.

The use of air dehumidifiers in the storage process is crucial because, in addition to ensuring compatible humidity levels, they will keep the environment free from impurities such as fungi, bacteria, and mites.
Maintaining controlled air humidity inside the warehouse means maintaining the integrity and ensuring the quality of stored products. Therefore, the goal of all dehumidification measures in warehouses is to keep humidity levels balanced. If we consider just one element, such as fungi, we can get an idea of the damage that can be caused. There is also the issue of mites, spores, and mildew, among others.
The recommended humidity level varies according to each type of merchandise. (Check the correct level in the following segments: food, pharmaceuticals, paper and pulp, textile, chocolate factories, photography, seeds, flowers, and tobacco).
Developed within the standards for the best storage practices, the dehumidifiers from the Desidrat Line by Thermomatic adapt to the specific needs in each case. Eliminate fungi and preserve your production. Ensure product quality by controlling the humidity of your environment with an air dehumidifier.
Schedule a technical visit to your warehouse for recommendations on the best solution against humidity.
Furthermore, the precise control of humidity through a Desidrat dehumidifier is responsible for ensuring the consistency and granularity of inputs, the proper functioning of machinery, and compliance with hygiene standards.
