500 CFM Dehumidifier

A desiccant dehumidifier uses a stabilized silica gel to directly absorb moisture from the air while it is a vapor. A moist air stream is passed over a desiccant which absorbs the moisture. The desiccant is then heated, which forces it to give up the absorbed moisture, regenerating the desiccant for continuous use. When deciding on which equipment to use, consideration must be given to the ambient temperature of the area to be dried. Generally, refrigerant based dehumidifiers cannot operate when the air temperature is below 60oF. A desiccant dehumidifier will remove water vapor even at sub-freezing temperatures.

Desiccant dehumidifiers can save you money by:
• Reducing the possibility of mold contamination 

• Restoring, not replacing, water damaged 
environments, materials and goods 

• Eliminating downtime and reworking on coatings 
projects 

• Returning your workplace to normal after floods, fires, pipe breaks and other mishaps

Mold & Fungus Prevention
Mold and fungus are normally dormant. When a building
or structure is exposed to high humidity levels or water
due to flooding or leaks, mold will proliferate rapidly. Drying
a structure completely and quickly is important to reduce the possibility of mold contamination. Desiccant dehumidifiers are the most cost effective way to provide the deep drying needed to extract water from the building and interior components.
