Publication Date



Areas with humid climates, such as Georgia, are currently experiencing a severe drought. Collecting condensate from large AHUs for on-site use is compelling, but how do you assess the quality of this water? The authors discuss how condensate from properly maintained large AHUs is high-quality water. They go on to explain how system design and maintenance affect its quality, and they give the readers guidance for how to use the condensate for on-site applications
