No more worries about dried-out corks and oxidised wine.
When wine coolers work at room temperature, the cooling effect automatically brings the relative humidity inside the cooler to the desired 50% or so for optimal wine storage. However, during the winter months, central heating can dry out the indoor air significantly. The heating system in wine coolers located in cold cellars may also be activated, further exacerbating the dryness of the air. When these dry conditions persist over weeks or even months, the relative humidity within the wine cooler can drop severely enough to cause corks to dry out, letting oxygen into the wine bottle. When this happens, the wine obviously goes very bad, very quickly.
To address this scenario, SWISSCAVE has developed a unique, electronically-controlled, air humidification system, letting the user set the desired relative humidity level between 60 and 85% in the wine cooler. With the sensors, the intelligent control ensures that the desired humidity level is reached and maintained automatically using an humidifier. Thanks to the new convection humidifier, there is much less water-logging.
Thanks to the inverter compressor and active ventilation management, temperature and humidity values are kept stable. The powerful humidification module and the integrated dehumidification function ensure that the desired humidity values are achieved even in a too dry or too humid environment. Winter heating ensures an adequate temperature inside the wine cooler* even in cold environments.
*The temperature and humidity control is optimised for cooling operation, i.e. when the device is operating in cooling mode (the temperature inside is colder than the environment). In heating mode, the temperature and humidity values may deviate from the set value.
