SMAC distributer for Munters in Africa

Munters AirTech

Munters are the original innovators in climate control since 1955.

Founded by a Swedish ingenious inventor and entrepreneur Carl Munters, the company was built around his insights to the laws of thermodynamics in combination with an ability to translate that understanding into groundbreaking technology. During his lifetime Carl Munters applied for nearly 1,000 patents, mostly within the areas of dehumidification and evaporative cooling. These two areas are core technologies within Munters.

Munters AirTech, the dehumidification division, is a global leader in energy-efficient air treatment for industrial and commercial applications offering solutions that removes moisture from the air to controlling humidity in commercial buildings and industrial processes. Munters dehumidification systems are used by more than 20 major industries in hundreds of applications. Their goal is to provide energy-efficient, safe and reliable climate solutions where control of moisture content and temperature in production are mission critical.

Munters helps leading companies around the world to maximize their opportunities while minimizing their global carbon emission footprint.

Through their South African partner, SMAC Enterprises, Munters dehumidifiers are distributed within South and Southern Africa as well as serviced through Munters trained technicians employed by SMAC Enterprises. Who is SMAC Enterprises? Read more .. 

Munters Head Office, R&D and Production Plants are based in Sweden, and are represented globally in over 30 countries. Munters are listed on the NASDAQ Stockholm and traded under the MTRS symbol.

 

 

Animation of a desiccant rotor

The Munters patented desiccant rotor is World leading

The basic idea of the patented Munters desiccant drying wheel (rotor) is very simple: Air is blown though the rotor structure and the humidity in the air is absorbed by the desiccant impregnated in the honeycombe media that forms the rotor structure. The air leaves the rotor much drier than when it entered.

A drive motor turns the rotor around slowly (6-10 times an hour).

The rotor structure passes a separate sector where hot (reactivation) air is blown through the rotor to remove the accumulated moisture. The resulting wet air (which contains the removed moisture) is blown away outside. The rotor consists of a corrugated fiberglass structure, which contains a hygroscopic material (desiccants such as silica gel or lithium-chloride).

Desiccant dehumidification systems have become increasingly popular because of lower equipment costs achieved through economies of scale, modular designs, and the use of desiccant silica gel wheels. These desiccant systems are extremely energy efficient and simple in that they use rejected heat from the condenser to regenerate the desiccant wheel.

Health, Safety and Hygiene for customers is essential to Munters which is clearly reflected in the design of the rotors. Our rotors are continuously tested, independently, and have most recently been proven by The Swedish Institute for Food and Biotechnology to have both bactericidal and fungicidal properties.

 

 

Munters IceDry

Munters IceDry® wins prestigious Health & Safety Award

The Food Storage and Distribution Federation (FSDF) announced their annual awards which recognise excellence in health and safety. The judges looked for an innovative approach, good prospects for wider application and cost-effective deployment prospects throughout the food storage and distribution industry at large.

The winner of the FSDF Associate Member category was the Munters IceDry solution, an innovative frost prevention dehumidification system which removes airborne moisture, reduces ice build-up and fogging, and greatly reduces accidents in cold storage areas.

This prestigious award once again proves that IceDry is successfully used around the world and continues to achieve high accolades within the cold storage industry. Munters are ecstatic that this application is helping with Health & Safety within the work place.
