Desiccant type dehumidifiers are for reducing moisture content from the air for industrial applications. These are useful for factories, warehouses, buildings etc. Also, these are useful for all applications below 10°C such as cold storage, walk-in freezers etc. Other technical terms for this type is adsorption dehumidifiers and rotor dehumidifiers. These are ideal for cooler climates where the dew point is low. We can use desiccant dehumidifiers for home, office, industrial and commercial applications.
The Desiccant Dehumidifier or rotor dehumidifier
The key distinction in desiccant dehumidifiers from condensation dehumidifiers is their use of moisture-absorbing materials. This is the desiccant, which has a high moisture absorbing properties. It uses a special drum of corrugated material that contains the desiccant. This material may appear in a honeycomb form, which maximizes surface area and exposure to incoming air. As the cool, humid air passes through portions of this drum, much of the moisture is absorbed into this honeycomb material.
Since the desiccant-impregnated material can only hold limited moisture, the drum rotates slowly and passes through a reactivation section. This unit forces warm air through the saturated material and releases the water previously trapped there. The resulting humid air is generally forced outside in order to make the interior dry.
Some units increase their power efficiency by collecting warmth derived from the absorption process. This heat is then used to heat the air in the reactivation portion of the drum. There are also a variety of ways for these machines to expel the moistened air after reactivation. Different environments and goals will require different methods of powering these units and disposing of the humidity.
Operating principle of a Desiccant Rotor dehumidification machine
A desiccant dehumidifier works as explained below:
- It has a rotor consisting of an adsorbent material similar to silica gel. It has a high moisture absorbing capacity
- The desiccant dehumidification machine sucks in moist air and passes over this rotor.
- The rotor quickly absorbs the moisture and the air becomes dry.
- The outlet air will be drier than the intake.
- In certain models, wet air is thrown out of the room through a separate outlet.
- The desiccant models are the only choice for temperatures below 10 Deg C.
Advantages of the Adsorption Dehumidifier
This process offers some crucial advantages when compared to the typical refrigerant dehumidifier. A desiccant dehumidifier can achieve much lower levels of humidity, especially at a cooler temperature. Also, it can ventilate buildings much more effectively and do so while saving on energy costs.
Typical Applications of a Desiccant Dehumidifier
An adsorption dehumidifier is designed to function in areas with high humidity levels and low temperatures levels. These conditions often make compressor or refrigerant units inefficient. However, a number of industries, such as private power plants, use these humidifiers in combination with other units to achieve maximum efficiency.
There are some distinctions about the adsorption dehumidifying process which make these devices preferable in various situations. For example, the adsorption process is a fairly quiet process. Desiccant units are therefore desirable in silent areas because their presence and functioning are almost unnoticeable. Portable units can sit in a hallway or room and operate quietly.
The parts required for desiccation are not as heavy nor as large as the components in a typical compressor unit. Hence these dehumidifiers are typically lighter as well. Obviously, there are many commercial applications that would benefit from this same advantage.
Desiccant dehumidification machines are not meant to replace all other units in this line of products. Instead, they complement the work done by other devices and complete an array of products that can handle any situation or requirement.
