Problems faced

Since EMA LTD started converting tissue products in their warehouse in Sofia, they found that the amount of dust from the raw tissue reels during processing was much higher than expected. The dust absorbs a huge amount of moisture. Combined with a relatively small production hall, it dropped the humidity down to unacceptable levels.

” Paper and tissue needs to be kept at stable humidity to be able to process reliably and predictably. At seriously low or high levels of humidity it becomes very difficult to work with paper and tissue. Since we make products which are in contact with food, we need to be like a cleanroom”

Kees Bijker, EMA LTD


AKIMist humidifier at EMA LTD


EMA LTD decided to look for a humidification solution and settled their choice on the portable AKIMist® “E” unit.  The main reason they chose AKIMist was because they needed a non-wetting solution due to their delicate machinery and paper. They also preferred a mobile unit which could easily be moved to a different area, if needed.




After installing the portable AKIMist®”E” unit in their tissue production, EMA LTD no longer experience any dust related problems.

“Since installing our unit we have not had any humidity related trouble from machines or from people, and we are very pleased with the result”.
