How Do Desiccant Dehumidifiers Work?

There are several kinds of dehumidifiers on the market, but before you decide which system is right for you, let’s focus on how desiccant dehumidification works:

The 7 Steps of Desiccant Dehumidification

  1. Dehumidifiers absorb moisture from the air into desiccant materials.
  2. The air to be dried, or processed, is ducted through the rotor in one air stream.
  3. The rotor brings the moist desiccant to the reactivation air stream to heat it up.
  4. Moisture is expelled from the desiccant material as water vapor.
  5. Moist, warm air is ducted outdoors.
  6. The separate air streams move in different directions, blowing any debris away from the processed air.
  7. Dried processed air is circulated back into the area.

Choosing the Right Dehumidifier Rental

Desiccant dehumidifiers are often found in applications where temperature control is paramount, like construction sites or industrial spaces that prepare pharmaceuticals or food. Although these units are known for their efficiency and aggressive extraction rate, 400 CFM units are commonly used to tackle the same air quality issues, but on a smaller scale.

When quick and total drying is the desired outcome, a desiccant dehumidifier could make all the difference. During construction or painting projects, desiccant dehumidifiers are the puzzle piece that gets the job completed on time. Otherwise, the wrong weather could drastically push back your project or seriously affect the quality of work.
