Wime Cellars - Humidity Control Rooms
All of the AlorAir dehumidifiers have digital humidistats on them constantly monitoring the humidity and turning themselves on and off to ensure the correct level of humidity is maintained.
The Sentinel Range of Dehumidifiers can be wall mounted or ceiling hung to keep them out of the way whilst circulating and dehumidifying the air. The HD55 & HDi90 units can be remotely controlled via cat 5 cable to a wall mounted panel. The units are also quiet in running allowing for easy communication.
A number of different filters can be added to the Sentinel Units from the HEPA filter to the Activated Carbon Filter (it comes with the Standard G3 filter).
Drying Room Solutions UK using Alorair Dehumidifiers, Air Movers and Air Scrubbers can give a quick, simple and long lasting solution to damp and humidity control in wine cellars.
For cellars it is critical to ensure that the humidity is kept at the right levels, too high and mould and fungus can grow and affect the wines too dry and corks can crack and crumble leading to damaged wines.
Either way it is essential to ensure that the cellar is kept to the correct level of humidity so that neither problems occur.
For Larger rooms we have the Storm Elite 125L, this comes with a G3 filter and semi pneumatic tyres and easy control display system.
All Sentinel and Storm Units can be ducted from (the expelled dryer air) allowing for use of a blown air if required for targeted drying should this be a requirement at all. For Smaller Storm Units see Storm Pro 70L, Storm Ultra 90L and Storm LGR 85L.
We would often advise for more air movement in the larger cellars and can link our air movers to the dehumidifiers so that when the dehumidifier turns on so does the fan - stirring up the air. The whole system turns off when the cellar has reached the correct level of humidity thus ensuring a more economic system. The Zeus 900 or Zeus Extreme air movers are the ones we like to use as they have a rotary moulded body (no rust) and are robust and economical to run.
Should you require a solution where you may want to move the dehumidifier from room to room or location to location then we have a variety of dehumidifiers we would suggest. The Storm range has 3 great units which would be perfect to remove a lot of moisture, these are the Storm Pro 70L, the Storm LGR Extreme 85L and the Storm Ultra 90L units. Both the Pro and Ultra are floor standing and easily movable with wheels and the Storm LGR is more compact and stands on the floor. They all come with a built in pump and so don't need emptying. They will turn on and off depending on the set point to control the relative humidity within your cellar to ensure a suitably humidified environment. By reducing the humidity you are also reducing the chance of mould/rot which is bad for labels, cork, wood and can make rooms smell musty and is of course unwanted.
Special carbon filters can be fitted to each unit to further assist in odour control for the drying rooms - please ask about them.
If you have a greater problem with dust, odours, or air quality why not look at adding the Cleanshield HEPA 550 Air Scrubber this unit helps control odours and will remove VOC's and minute airborne particles through a 3 stage filter system including a HEPA filter and an Activated Carbon Filter. Speed adjustable and quiet, lightweight (18Kg), robust and easy to use. We can link this unit to a timer switch allowing for easy control and running of the unit - the additional air movement also helps lift the moisture from walls, floors or ceilings assisting in drying times being reduced.
