Humidity Condensation Abatement in Cold Trailers

By Eric Gritter and Dan Gudmunson

Students were asked to design a system that would solve a safety and product quality issue in a local manufacturing facility. In order to ensure product quality, the manufacturing environment has to be maintained year-round at a high relative humidity. During the winter months this moist environment creates challenges in the loading dock area where condensation and ice created unsafe working conditions for employees and conditions in which the degradation of product and packaging is possible. After evaluating the conditions in the loading dock area, the design team proposed a dehumidification system to remediate this problem.
