DRYAIR delivers advanced humidity control system for protecting high value assets at Ferrari.
Our most recent car storage project was for Ferrari’s main dealership in the UK.
From initial concept to delivery of the humidity control system we worked with consultants and contractors on design and commissioning to ensure the project was a success.
This facility is now home to some of the finest Super Cars ever produced and is protected by the DT Group MDC6000.
Our commercial and industrial dehumidifier range has been designed to ensure energy efficient, accurate humidity control is provided year round.
Using the advanced Siemens HMI Controller the customer can monitor the store remotely and provide historical data to customers proving their treasured vehicles have been kept in optimal conditions.
We can help you achieve the optimal environment regardless if you are a car enthusiast with a cherished classic, or have a commercial scale storage facility.
Car storage humidity control
Using a desiccant based car storage dehumidifier will create the optimal storage conditions that will protect your car from corrosion.
Keeping humidity levels at below 55% is vital in minimising corrosion of metal components on your car during storage. The most cost-effective solution to maintaining optimal conditions in your storage space is the installation of a car storage dehumidifier, based on desiccant dehumidifier technology. Unlike DX (condensation type) dehumidifiers, desiccant dehumidifiers, provide year-round accurate humidity control against prevailing conditions even at lower temperatures where DX systems are unable to perform.
As desiccant can operate effectively at low temperatures this also removes the need to heat the space other than for frost protection purposes. By controlling humidity against prevailing temperatures, it ensures humidity levels also do not drop too low. The importance being too low a relative humidity, can lead to materials such as wood leather and natural rubber to dry out in winter months.
The use of desiccant dehumidification is the best way to prevent wet atmospheric corrosion of metal.
For several years the Swedish Corrosion Institute has been testing and observing cars, to identify which parts of the body suffer the most from corrosion. Tests revealed that the following elements are mostly exposed to corrosion: cross bars, stands, various supports (which are under load) and brackets of springs, wing spars, doors, bottom of the car, niches of headlights, fenders and bumpers.
Almost all major parts of the car are exposed to corrosion!
The advantages of desiccant dehumidifiers within car storage:
- Protect your car from the harmful effects of moisture
- Prolong the lifespan of the car
- Prolong the lifespan of the garage
- Prevent mildew and unpleasant odours
- Increase the serviceability of buildings and constructions
- Humidity can be controlled against prevailing conditions ensuring humidity levels are maintained at a constant regardless of temperature
