Air humidification for electronics production

Movements and frictions create static charges in dry ambient air. Whirled-up dust particles collide with each other and become statically charged. If the dust particles come into contact with conductive components, an explosive, invisible discharge takes place.

Not only dust particles are a risk factor, but the electronic components themselves also become statically charged. As little as 100 volts are enough to destroy electronic components.

Electrostatic charging can be significantly reduced by raising the air humidity. Raising the air humidity ensures that electrical charges are dissipated, which prevents the formation of potential differences.
