Dixie Consumer Products LLC makes a variety of paper goods such as paper plates, cups, napkins, and other kitchen and bathroom products. In order to make their products, they need to maintain a relative humidity of 45% in their factories. This is because if humidity is too low, the paper cups distort during the forming process.
Mee Industries was contacted to supply a fog humidification system to meet the necessary humidification requirements to help maintain high volume production and prevent product distortions. Our MeeFog Humidifier offers precise humidity control which allowed Dixie Cup to maintain a relative humidity of 45% in their newest factory.
MeeFog systems have far lower energy costs than other types of humidification systems. A MeeFog system designed for 1,000 lbs. of output per hour and 3,500 hours of operation per year will cost approximately $700 per year to operate, compared with $14,350 for compressed air atomizers and $128,800 for electric steam humidifiers. In addition, the MeeFog system cools the air as it humidifies, giving an added benefit of lower cooling costs.
