Condair: The Importance of Humidification and Adiabatic Technologies

We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.


This live event will address the importance and benefits of humidification and adiabatic technologies. Traditionally, for decades, steam has been the primary choice for humidification. As evidence of the benefits of fresh air and humidification on mitigating the spread of airborne viruses is mounting, air exchange rates are expected to rise, resulting in increased humidification loads.
Adiabatic technologies provide an optimal option, with quantifiable benefits, to ensure the health of buildings, without sacrificing energy efficiency.

Discussion topics include:

  • From Switzerland to the world – How has humidification evolved over time – Condair group origins and legacy.
  • Humidification requirements – The importance of a healthy environment and adiabatic TCO payback.
  • Practical considerations when providing 40-60% RH in cold climates.
  • Condair custom solutions approach.
  • Legionella control.
  • Holistic integration – How humidification can be integrated into IEQ.
  • What is the future of humidification technologies – Productivity vs. Comfort vs. Energy?

*Certificates of attendance are available for this event.


Nuno Silva received his Bachelor and Master of Engineering from the Technical University of Lisbon, and his double-PhD from the Technical University of Denmark and National University of Singapore. His studies and research have always been focused on Mechanical Engineering and building science. He transferred from Condair AG in Switzerland to Condair North America in 2018. With several years of knowledge and experience in humidification, his focus has always been in adiabatic technologies.

William Truong is the business development manager at Condair for Data Centers in North America. In his current role, he specializes in applying cold water systems and evaporative cooling technologies into new build and retrofit applications. William has been with Condair for 11 years and in previous roles has worked as a product manager for steam and adiabatic systems. William holds a BASc degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Ottawa.
William is also a member of ASHRAE committee TC 5.11 Humidifying Equipment and Vice Chair of TC 5.7 Evaporative Cooling.
