What is relative humidity (RH)?

Relative Humidity (RH) plays a crucial role in our comfort and health, especially in environments like aircraft cabins, where air quality is paramount. RH measures the amount of water vapor in the air compared to the maximum amount the air can hold at a given temperature. It’s expressed as a percentage; the higher the percentage, the more moisture in the air.

Now, why is this important for you, especially when flying? The comfort and well-being of passengers and crew in the unique environment of an aircraft cabin are significantly influenced by RH. Most commercial aircraft cabins have a very low RH, often between 5-12%, much lower than what we’re accustomed to on the ground. This low humidity can lead to dehydration and dryness of the skin, eyes, and mucous membranes and even exacerbate jet lag.

Here’s where CTT Systems steps in with our innovative products: the Humidifier Onboard and the Anti-condensation system.

Humidifier Onboard

This state-of-the-art system introduces moisture into the cabin air, raising the RH to a more comfortable and healthier level. It’s not just about comfort; higher humidity levels can reduce the dryness of cabin air, making your journey more enjoyable and refreshed upon arrival.

Anti-condensation system

Alongside our humidifier, the Anti-condensation system plays a vital role in protecting the aircraft. By managing the moisture levels in the cabin, this system prevents condensation from accumulating within the aircraft’s structure. This reduces the risk of corrosion and helps maintain the integrity and longevity of the aircraft.

Together, these two products create a harmonious balance, ensuring that the cabin environment is comfortable and conducive to passenger well-being and maintains the aircraft’s health. By optimizing RH, CTT Systems is revolutionizing the air travel experience, making your flights more pleasant and healthier. So, the next time you board a flight equipped with CTT Systems’ technology, take a deep breath and enjoy the difference.
