Humidity sensitive airflow
Principle: the airflow is controlled by the local relative humidity.
The detector and actuator of the humidity sensitive products, the sensor, makes use the tendency of polyamide strips to become longer when the relative humidity of the air increases and shorter when it decreases. This principle is used to activate one or more shutters, thereby adjusting the passage of the air according to the ambient relative humidity. The higher the humidity in the room, the wider the shutters open. The sensor is isolated from the incoming airflow; it measures only the interior moisture content. Moreover, thanks to a thermal correction, the opening of the shutters is unaffected by the external climatic conditions. Aereco’s humidity sensitive technology is applied to air inlets, grilles, and exhaust units located in the rooms where the humidity reflects the level of indoor pollution (lounge, bedrooms, bathrooms).
