Relevant Project Details:
Nomax in Affton, MO is a project that Hoffmann Brothers Mechanical Contractors completed in 2010. Nomax is a local company that manufactures pharmaceutical pills. These pharmaceutical pills need to be manufactured in a particular environment, where humidity and temperature are critical. The casing on a pill dissolves with moisture, so a dry environment is a must at Nomax. Hoffmann Brothers built a clean room and installed a dehumidification system to maintain a relative humidity less than 15%. The dehumidification system included both mechanical refrigeration and desiccant dryers. IN the clean room, Nomax is able to run heating and cooling at the same time to achieve the temperatures and humidity levels necessary for pill production.
