After Kamm Consulting Inc., an engineering firm in Boca Raton, Fla., moved its 70 employees into a new 22,000-square-foot facility, managing principal Art Kamm (right) realized the building was at 60 percent relative humidity. He contacted John Graves, president of Graves & Associates, who recommended the Munters HCU 2000 for the facility. "The building needed at least 1,400 cfm of outside air to meet code requirements," Graves said. Kamm said he chose the Munters HCU over competition because of its energy efficiency and the way it regenerates the desiccant wheel with the condenser heat. "The humidity literally dropped overnight," Kamm said. "We started it on an afternoon at 4 p.m., and by the next morning the building was down to 45 percent humidity."
