The article offers specifications in solving high relative humidity (RH) in large food processing facilities. Food factories are complaining about the recurrence of high HR throughout their area especially in their tools and equipment. It is explained that recurrence of RH is due to the absorption of too much moisture from the ambient air. However, the problem can be prevented by regular check-up of the quality of the machines used in the facility and proper balance of temperature in the environment.
