|Why Buy A Desciccant Dehumidifier? - top
Desiccant dehumidifiers work according to the adsorption principle, making them especially suited for high humidity levels at low temperatures. They are often used in various sectors in the industry because they can achieve humidity levels below 35%.
Desiccant dehumidifiers use a slowly rotating disc or belt of material that absorbs moisture from the air. The damp section then moves through a drying process (typically a heating element) that evaporates the water and collects it in the tank.
Because they don't use cooling to extract the moisture, desiccant rotor models can be much more effective than refrigerative models in cold climates.
In fact, desiccant dehumidifiers' performance are largely unaffected by the temperature of the air. As you can see in the graph below, their rate of dehumidification remains stable in low and high temperatures, making them suitable for all seasons.
Compressors, on the other hand, work better in summer when temperatures are higher, but not so much in cooler temperature.
Another great thing about desiccant dehumidifiers is that they don't use any refrigerants and therefore are very low in maintenance. With a high extraction rate at all temperatures, portable and lightweight design, desiccant dehumidifiers are fast becoming the top choice among buyers.
