Industrial condenser dryer DH 160

Versatile dehumidifier for continuous commercial and industrial dry keeping applications

Dry keeping of control centres
Humidity regulation in warehouses
Dehumidification in pump stations

XXL dry keeping

The industrial condenser dryer DH 160 which can also be supplied in a stainless steel housing is characterized by a high dehumidification capacity, reliable continuous operation properties and practice-oriented equipment options alike. Designed for the operation whilst positioned on the floor, the device – given on-site preparation – can also easily be used when mounted to the wall or ceiling. Also it can be connected to existing ducted air systems.

The dehumidifier DH 160 comes with a smoothly running scroll compressor for constant, pulsation-free pressure to ensure an energy-efficient refrigeration. Combined with its self-regulating EC radial fan this robust industrial dryer allows for a constantly high dehumidification performance during continuous operation even at low temperatures.

Simple installation and start-up

The DH 160 is an effective dry keeping solution which can be installed immediately without the need for additional construction measures. It can also be subsequently installed to assist existing air treatment systems. Simply set it up, connect it to the power supply and install the condensate discharge hose – all done.

Unlike competition models of the same class the DH 160 has a condensate pump integrated as standard. As a result, the condensate can easily be discharged – even to elevated areas.

Extremely economical

In high-volume recirculation operation this industrial dryer withdraws the major part of the humidity from the air in keeping with the target humidity level preselected via the hygrostat. A high level of efficiency is ensured by the steplessly self-regulating EC double-flow radial fan and the high-performance compression refrigeration system of the DH 160.

The dry air supplied to the room is simultaneously heated by the process with the result that the input of conventional heat and ventilation energy can be substantially reduced. Owing to a coefficient of performance (COP) of 2.9 the DH 160 is able to generate 2.9 kW of heat output from every kilowatt used during dehumidification.

The professional hot gas defrost system of the DH 160 works with an automatically controlled cycle inversion. For this method the refrigerant circuit is briefly inverted via a four-way valve for the frost protection of the evaporator so that the as yet cold evaporator now becomes a hot condenser and the other way round. Compared to hot gas defrosting based on the bypass procedure the cycle inversion is a much faster defrost solution which improves the performance level and thus increases the net overall equipment effectiveness of this dehumidifier.

Diverse application possibilities

Unless effectively controlled, humidity can lead to manifold problems for production processes, furniture and equipment or stored goods. An ideal humidity regulation does not just prevent rust, rot, material decomposition or a reduced quality in processing and storing goods, its also a reliable protection against mould growth. The robust design, high dehumidification performance and simple installation render the DH 160 an effective all-rounder for various fields of application:

Adjustment options

Due to the galvanized, powder-coated steel construction even the standard version of the DH 160 is highly resistant to corrosion and environmental influences. Furthermore, it can be adjusted to meet special requirements:

  • Stainless steel version
    Ideal for the application in areas with special hygienic requirements or particularly reactive air environments. The AISI 316 stainless steel housing can easily be cleaned, it is especially resistant to various chemical solutions like sulphuric acid or iodides. Furthermore, AISI 316 has a very high corrosion resistance – especially with regards to chlorides.
  • Heat exchanger with CDC coating
    Ideal for the application in especially reactive air environments. Due to the cathodic dip coating (CDC) the coating of the heat exchangers is resistant to solvents and corrosion as well as to acids and alkalis.
  • High-pressure fan
    For a greater volumetric flow the fan is available with a static pressure increase (200 Pa) which enables longer air transport distances e.g. when connecting the device to existing ducted air systems.
  • Defrosting below 0 °C
    To lower the dew point in particularly cold environments such as cold stores the operating temperature range of the DH 160 can be enhanced to between -0.5 °C and +42 °C.
For the application in particularly hygiene-sensitive areas the DH 160 is optionally also available with a stainless steel housing as per AISI 316.
Can optionally also be supplied in a stainless steel housing
In addition to the free discharge of dry air into the room the rectangular duct connection also permits an integration into existing ventilation systems or the attachment of air transport hoses using the optionally available hose adapter.

All operational settings can be made via the central control panel which has been recessed to protect the operating elements from impact and consequential maloperation.

The double-flow radial fan of the DH 160 impresses with a high efficiency level and simultaneously minimized energy consumption. Its EC motor automatically controls itself in accordance with the specified parameters and therefore consumes clearly less power than permanent motors of the same performance category.

The integrated MID-compliant energy consumption meter comes equipped with and additional service menu providing information for maintenance.
MID-compliant current measuring system with additional functions
Owing to the condensate pump integrated as standard the condensate may also be discharged to a higher level instead of through a downward sloping drain. Simply fasten the discharge hose to the desired connection and activate the pump.

The control panel further accommodates the power button for the on-demand condensate pump and a DIN socket for external switchings to which e.g. an external hygrostat can be connected or facilities for remote switching of the DH 160.

For the direct attachment of air transport hoses to the dry air outlet of the DH 160 we offer an optionally available hose adapter which can be mounted to the rectangular duct connection of the device.

Make use of Trotec's best practice industrial services

Since every industrial undertaking has characteristic process flows, installations and facilities, every air treatment solution demands case-specific device configurations. All in all, the combined effects of air currents, humidity conditions and temperature fluctuations are often hard to calculate on a purely theoretical basis, e.g. in airlock areas or on conveying paths. The consequence: Unnecessary additional costs due to an overestimated demand or – even worse – solutions not working sufficiently in real life.

You can count on our experts

In order to precisely calculate the demand in the industry and to develop tailor-made concepts for climate conditioning experienced climate specialists are needed. Rely on our team of experts as well as the industrial services: We analyse the individual requirement situation with you present on site, determine the specific demand for devices and develop a tailor-made project solution right up to the exact positioning of the devices.

Before the planned stationary units are installed, our service team first works with mobile versions of the drying units as part of a trial run. These can be put up without any difficulty or the need for structural changes.

During this validation phase we document all relevant climate parameters such as air temperature, relative humidity, dew point or flow rate for a final optimization of the requirement calculation.

Trotec is the only provider of this advantage:

Thanks to the unique option of non-binding trial operation you will invest solely in solutions which have verifiably proven their worth in everyday operation meeting your individual on-site requirements. The stationary units will not be ordered until you are fully satisfied with our concept. The only costs incurred consist of an inexpensive hiring flat rate for the time of test operation.

Just give us a call at +49 2452 963-777 – our industry consultants will be pleased to help you personally and provide information regarding our best practice industrial services. Or send a request indicating your personal requirements directly to our industry experts. We will answer promptly!
