Prevent the build up of water in electrical aparatus
Abzorbz moisture absorbing packs
Water ingress is a real and continual problem for electrical equipment, both in industrial and hazardous areas. Water ingress is a major cause of failure for example of luminaires and can lead to short circuits as well as corrosion of lamp contacts and wiring connections which in turn can lead to arcing. Water is also known to cause premature ballast failure leading to increased risk of overheating.
How does it work
The Abzorbz material is completely safe and non-toxic. The packs are constructed from a 2 part system - a water permeable membrane which allows moisture absorbancy, and a second water blocking material to help prevent the water escaping back into the equipment as a result of condensation during heat cycles.
As equipment temperatures rise and fall as a result of day/night temperature fluctuations, or through temperature rises when equipment is running, this heating and cooling can cause condensation within equipment. Water is also known to travel through cables into equipment through capilliary action. Despite often being rated IP66 and above, water will often find its way into equipment, with catastrophic or costly consequences.
With the ingress of water often unnoticed until periodic inspection or worse through equipment failure, Abzorbz helps to prevent damage caused by water ingress.
Abzorbz is available in 3 sizes to suit various applications:
Small - will absorb up to XXX of moisture
Medium - will absorb up to XXX of moisture
Large - will absorb up to XXX of moisture
For larger applcations, multiple units can be used
