In the pyrotechnics industry, the process of drying pyrotechnic material is common. A widely used method for achieving this is the use of the desiccant rotor dehumidifier. Correct use of this system is vital to ensure the installation is both safe and efficient.
Although materials are made and stored in various different factories and other locations, they must all operate with the correct levels of relative humidity to avoid product failures. Gunpowder will deteriorate and become unsafe if not stored at the correct humidity.
