TurboFogNeo - Draabe's next-generation humidifier
In Poznan, the humidification specialist DRAABE will be presenting the TurboFogNeo, its new high-pressure nozzle humidifier. Compared to previous models, this next-generation humidifier was designed for significantly energy consumption and greater application flexibility. In offset and digital printing, constant, optimum relative humidity guards against electrostatic charge build-up and changes in paper dimensions.
Draabe's TurboFogNeo system is the first product range to offer both ceiling- and wall-mounted fogging units. A total of five humidifier models are available: these are designed to be combined flexibly to fulfil a range of requirements and thus enable optimum humidification results. Depending on the interior environment and space usage, print shops can deploy high-pressure humidifiers for high factory buildings, low ceilings, dense plant installations, warehouses or post-processing units. Compared to previous TurboFog humidifier systems, unit size has been reduced by up to 50%, so as to enable the use of smaller and more energy-saving fan systems. The new system is also designed to use frequency-controlled high-pressure pulsation: this generates no more pressure than is required for the actual output level configured. According to company figures, this can cut energy costs by a further 70%.
Hygiene and operational safety are ensured by the system's integrated water treatment and high-pressure pump units. Both modules are installed into portable, small-format containers. Twice yearly, these are automatically exchanged by the manufacturer for fully-serviced, disinfected units.
