The need to control the temperature and humidity in a textile mill is essential to successful spinning. This book explains the principles adopted in different humidification plants and their use in textile plants.
The importance of maintaining and managing humidity and temperature in a textile mill is not a new concept, but understanding the requirements, the equipment capabilities and utilizing them to get the best results is a challenge the technicians face all the time. Now the systems have changed from manually operated to fully automatic; however, unless one knows how to monitor, he shall still have the problem. Some guidelines are needed for the shop floor technicians relating to maintenance of humidity and monitoring the air.
The idea of writing a book on Managing of Humidity came from my friend Ananth Harnahalli. I hesitated first, as I was only a Textile Technologist and not a Humidification Engineer. Ananth reminded me that I had faced lot of problems due to improper maintenance of humidity while working on the shop floor and had struggled a lot to get required conditions. The problems faced were always unique as the systems were getting changed, materials were getting changed and also the working conditions. Ananth told that the purpose of this book should be to guide the shop floor technicians and engineers in maintaining required conditions and to act in advance. They need the basic concepts and the choice available in the market to update their humidification plants; hence this book.
An attempt is made to collect and provide information starting from the basic concepts, developments, varying needs of the industry, the problems associated with maintenance of plants to get the required conditions, designing of plant capacity, modification or designing of building to get the best results, various issues of health and hygiene, the pollution control issues, various models available in the market, etc. However, it should be noted that it is practically impossible to explain all the equipments and give details of all manufacturers. Hence, efforts are made to explain at least one unit in each type.
