Condair installs high-pressure humidification system at The Green Planet in Dubai

Humidification system helps maintain a necessary range of 70% to 90% humidity throughout the year

Condair, the Dubai-based humidity control and evaporative cooling specialist, has said that it has supplied and installed a high-pressure humidification system to help protect the flora and fauna inside The Green Planet biodome in Dubai.

The indoor rainforest contains more than 2,000 species of insects, plants, fish and mammals, and needs a humidity range of 70% to 90% throughout the year. A Condair ML humidification system has been installed in the facility and is spraying up to 750 litres per hour to recreate an indoor tropical habitat at the centre.

Victoria Lynn, General Manager Attraction at The Green Planet, Dubai Holding Entertainment, commented: “We keep the temperature at between 24-26°C inside the rainforest biome year-round. Keeping the biome within this humidity and temperature range is important, as we have numerous species of rainforest plants and animals that depend on a proper environment to survive and live a comfortable life.”

“Some general consequences of not maintaining the required humidity and temperature include plants drying out, or not having enough water. Our birds require high humidity to keep their feathers and skin clean and healthy. For our reptiles, high humidity helps them to shed their skin properly and prevent dehydration,” she continued.

Mahmoud Widyan, General Manager at Condair Middle East said: “The Green Planet biodome is such an impressive and educational experience for its guests, and we are very proud to have supplied the humidification system for this project. It was important that the humidifiers blended in with the design of the environment, so we worked with the project team to embed the system’s nozzles around some of the elevated walkways that surround the world’s largest man-made tree. It was a very successful installation, which we are delighted to be supporting with regular planned preventative inspection and maintenance.”

The ML Flex high pressure humidifier used at the centre is proven technology and consists of a water treatment and pump station feeding water to a series of nozzles strategically located in the area requiring humidity control.

As the water is pressurised to around 70 bar, when it is released from the nozzle, it rapidly atomises without any drips. Its RO water treatment filter removes not only minerals from the supply water but also bacteria and viruses. This combines with the humidifier’s on-board UV sterilisation system to ensure humidification is dust free and hygienic.

High pressure humidifiers, such as the ML Flex, offer high-capacity humidification as well as evaporative cooling to an environment. For every 1kg of moisture delivered, 0.68kW of evaporative cooling is also provided.

As each pump station can provide up to 750kg/h of water, the system is ideal for large manufacturing and production areas, as well as greenhouses and agricultural applications.
