Munters is the original innovator in climate control since 1955. Founded by ingenious inventor and entrepreneur Carl Munters, the company was built around his insights to the laws of thermodynamics in combination with an ability to translate that understanding into groundbreaking technology. During his lifetime Carl Munters applied for nearly 1,000 patents, mostly within the areas of dehumidification and evaporative cooling. These two areas are core technologies within Munters. Today the legacy of innovation and engineering lives on within the company. The spirit of passionate innovator Carl Munters guides the daily work.
It was in 1955 that the famous Swedish inventor and entrepreneur Carl Munters (1897-1989) founded Munters together with Marcus Wallenberg and two other persons. His initial idea was to develop an air-conditioning system based on the use of evaporative cooling and dehumidification. The development of the key components of the system were the desiccant wheel and the evaporative pads. To the right a sketch of his first rotor, the core of dehumidification.See more
