Title
(EN) MODULAR HUMIDITY CONTROL AND HEAT PRESERVATION SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME MODULAIRE DE RÉGULATION DE L'HUMIDITÉ ET DE CONSERVATION DE LA CHALEUR
Abstract
(EN)
A modular humidity control system is provided. An example system includes a body configured for attachment with a food storage housing. The body may define a closed circuit air flow path for circulating air through the food storage housing. The system also includes a desiccant element secured within the closed circuit air flow path that removes moisture from the moisture-laden air passing through the closed circuit air flow path, and stores the removed moisture. The system further includes a regeneration that monitors a saturation of the desiccant element. In an instance in which the saturation of the desiccant element exceeds a saturation threshold, the regeneration system may evaporate at least a portion of the moisture stored by the desiccant element.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système modulaire de régulation de l'humidité. Un système donné à titre d'exemple comprend un corps conçu pour être fixé à un boîtier de stockage d'aliments. Le corps peut définir un trajet d'écoulement d'air en circuit fermé pour faire circuler de l'air à travers le boîtier de stockage d'aliment. Le système comprend également un élément déshydratant fixé à l'intérieur du trajet d'écoulement d'air en circuit fermé qui élimine l'humidité de l'air chargé d'humidité passant à travers le trajet d'écoulement d'air en circuit fermé et stocke l'humidité retirée. Le système comprend en outre un système de régénération qui surveille une saturation de l'élément déshydratant. Dans un cas où la saturation de l'élément déshydratant dépasse un seuil de saturation, le système de régénération peut évaporer au moins une partie de l'humidité stockée par l'élément déshydratant.
