Humidification & Humidity Control in Explosives Manufacturing

Misting Systems - The Misting Company

During the manufacture of explosive devices such as munitions, fireworks or flares, uncontrolled static electrical discharge presents a high risk to the combustible materials being processed. By maintaining a humidity of 55%RH static build-up is avoided as the moisture acts as a conductor and dissipates any electrical charge generated by friction.

Thermo hygrographs are used to record the temperature and humidity in explosive manufacturing facilities so that the environmental conditions munitions are produced under can be traced back and checked should a defect be identified in the field at a later date.

In-room humidifiers are used in these environments. The Misting Company HP mist systems are popular as, unlike steam humidifiers, they do not contain electric heating elements and still provide very close control over the humidity to within +/-1%rH.
