A warehouse that has high humidity affects everything that is stored in it. It is essential to keep the right humidity levels in warehouses to maintain the right moisture level. This is required to have a safe and healthy environment for storage. A dehumidifier helps you to control the humidity level under such circumstances without affecting the storage. There are many kinds of warehouse dehumidifiers available. As warehouses are usually larger spaces and when those spaces are not climate controlled, it is good to install a dehumidifier with a desiccant or a refrigerant unit depending upon the temperature level of the warehouse.
At cooler temperatures below 10°C, a refrigerant dehumidifier may not work due to the heating required for the condenser coil. This usually becomes difficult due to the outside temperature. In such a case a desiccant dehumidifier is more suitable. The desiccant material is used to suck up the moisture from the air in a natural way. It exhausts the dry air to keep the warehouse environment safe and dry. This also ensures that the pests, insects and other problems arising out of damp air are kept away. The damp & moist air is conducive for algae and fungal growth and also has a corrosive nature to the fixtures made of iron and steel. This involves periodic cleaning and maintenance procedures to the warehouse and it could become a costly affair. A dehumidifier helps in reducing the operational cost of the warehouses by keeping the humidity levels to the right amount to ensure a safe and working environment.

The desiccant dehumidifiers work in below zero temperature conditions and do not rely on a mechanical way of reheating the air using the condenser coils. These are a bit expensive than the refrigerant ones due to the desiccant material used. In most of the cases, the silica gel is used as a desiccant material, which also serves as repellents. Silica gel is good for the absorption of moisture from the air. When it comes to a dehumidifier for a warehouse, the challenge lies in the environmental condition and the space of the warehouse. Ventilation plays a major role for warehouses with larger spaces. Air flow from the outside of the warehouse affects dehumidification. But in cases where ventilation control is not possible, you may have to use a higher capacity warehouse dehumidifier.
