HOW DOES DESICCANT DEHUMIDIFICATION WORK?
- Unlike refrigeration based dehumidifiers, which chill air below its dew point to condensate the water vapor, the 1800 desiccant based systems act more like a sponge.
- Moisture laden air is drawn through the rotor in the process air stream. The desiccant embedded in the rotor “soaks-up” this moisture and holds on to it.
- The dried process air is ducted into the required area.
- The rotor brings the soaked desiccant into the reactivation air stream where it is heated up.
- The hot air “squeezes” the moisture back into the reactivation air stream as water vapor.
- The wet reactivation air is ducted outside to the atmosphere.
- The 1800 Desiccant simply functions as an air-to-air moisture exchanger, taking moisture out of the process air stream and placing it into the reactivation airstream.
