Practical knowledge concerning dehumidifiers

Overview of techniques, the functional principle and possible applications of the various device categories

Condenser dryer or desiccant dehumidifier, refrigerant compression or Peltier technology, air circulation or hot gas defrosting? If you are looking for the ideal device to provide an optimum room climate with perfect humidity values, you may easily lose track of things in view of the manifold options and techniques.

Therefore at this point we step forward to unerringly guide you through this jungle of devices. Benefit from the comprehensive overview of the device differences, functional principles and possible applications provided in the following chapters:

Basic knowledge regarding humidity – relative is everything

A basic knowledge of the subject of humidity is rather helpful for a better understanding of how the technology used by the various device classes differs and hence to best keep your rooms dry. You see, the air cannot absorb an unlimited amount of water. There is a saturation limit. This chapter provides you with all the relevant basics relating to humidity. It deals with theory, to be sure, but this is not an altogether dry subject – promise!

Dehumidification methods – condensation and desiccation

To withdraw excess moisture from the room air effectively and permanently, the only technical solution available is dehumidification, either by condensation or desiccation. This chapter will tell you why and further provide information on all the important differences as well as the operating principle of both methods. It also explains why “just heating” the room simply cannot succeed in eliminating excessive humidity levels.
