Portable desiccant dehumidifiers are not just for home use but may be more aptly suited for commercial use.  One portable desiccant dehumidifier could be used in many different areas of a manufacturing facility, warehouse, chemical plant, or many other industries.  Whether you are trying to dry something before shipping, or trying to dry the inside of a tank before cleaning or painting these units can help you achieve the results you want. 

These units typically have a rotor filled with silica gel material that collects the moisture in the form of a gas.  After the rotor collects the moisture in the incoming air stream it will then go through a heater where the moisture is released.  After it is released it will need to be vented to the outdoors.

Thеrе іѕ verу lіttlе maintеnаnce nееdеd wіth a portаblе deѕiссаnt dehumіdіfіеr.  Typically there is a filter in the intake air flow that will need to be changed out at least once a month.  More often if the unit is being used in an extremely dusty place.  Then once a year, it is a good idea to pull out the desiccant rotor and wash it out and put it back in the unit.  This will ensure that the unit will continue to operate at a high level.  Besides these two things there should not be any other maintenance and the unit should operate for years.

Also, desiccant dehumidifiers will work very efficiently in conditions that are cooler than 70°.  Refrigerant style dehumidifiers become highly inefficient when the temperature in the area to be dried is below 70°.  On the other hand desiccant dehumidifiers do not take the moisture out of the air in the form of a liquid so they can work efficiently in colder conditions.

When you have a need to remove moisture or control high humidity consider a desiccant dehumidifier for your next project.  They can deliver years of dependable service for your home or your commercial application.
