What a Desiccant Dehumidifier Does

Desiccant dehumidifiers come in several sizes ranging from small portable desiccants with 80 cfm (cubic feet per meter) all the way up to large trailer mounted desiccant with over 25,000 cfm. At First Choice Equipment Sales and Service, we offer desiccant repair, service, rentals and sales. Desiccant dehumidifiers have several applications. The desiccants that we sell are manly used for structural drying for flooring, plaster, lath walls, or other dense material. Desiccant dehumidifiers do not remover water like a refrigerant dehumidifier. Desiccant dehumidifiers use a process called “adsorption” through a desiccant wheel. A desiccant wheel consists of small air passages impregnated with silica gel. The desiccant wheel turns slowly through different airflow zones of the desiccant system. This allows moisture to be absorbed and released in a different zone. The desiccant dehumidifier will dry down to a lower relative humidity than a traditional LGR dehumidifier.
