General Desiccant Dehumidifiers Desiccant Dehumidifier

At SERVPRO of Georgetown/East Round Rock/Hutto some circumstances require us to use a Desiccant Dehumidifier. 

This particular dehumidifier works with a chemical to pull the moisture out of the air and materials in extremely cold or extremely warm temperatures.

The desiccant, an important component of this dehumidifier, is simply a chemical that adsorbs (not absorbs) moisture. The desiccant used in these dehumidifiers are able to release the adsorbed moisture when heated.

A large rotating drum made of alternate layers of flat corrugated sheets which are impregnated with the desiccant. Once spinning it functions to remove moisture from the air in the room.

The humid air enters the dehumidifier, adsorbed by the desiccant material, heated up and then exhausts out of the of the drum.
