ABSTRACT
The article discusses the process of dehumidification. It elaborates on the potential problems posed by humidity which include overloading of cooling plants due to high latent load, equipment difficulties in packaging areas with high moisture levels, and spoilage of raw materials in unprotected warehouses. Information on the types of dehumidification used in industry such as cooling based dehumidification and chemical dehumidification is offered.
