Great products, difficult conditions – the brewery conundrum
Calculate your way out of humidity problems
Brewing is a complex process that often involves unusual mixes of old and new, traditional and technological.
In many of the processes used in brewing, temperatures and humidity levels are high. And in many others temperatures are necessarily low.
Such combinations of lots of airborne moisture and lots of cold surfaces – like pipes, tanks, walls, windows, bottles and barrels – are also a formidable recipe for problems with condensation, mould, fungi and bacterial growths.
What you can do
But all this can be dealt with. A Cotes adsorption dehumidifier gives you full control over humidity conditions in any section of your brewery.
The benefits include:
- No condensation forming on cold surfaces
- No problems with mould growths on inner walls, ceilings, etc.
- No problems with water pooling on floors, resulting in hygiene issues as well as accidents
- No problems with condensation affecting electrical installations

How to calculate your dehumidifier configuration
These are some of the key metrics needed to to work out the configuration of a dehumidifier for your particular brewery.
- Weather conditions and seasonal variations
- Volume of the room
- Air ingress into the room via doors, windows, etc.
- Floor area
- Desired room temperature
- Temperature of the coldest surface in the space
Don’t you worry about the calculation. Cotes does that for you.
