Sometimes Condensation Dehumidifier may not be appropriate to use in some location or area, in such condition Desiccant Dehumidifier can be used for the dehumidification of the place. Our company Vacker Nigeria provides different models of Desiccant Dehumidifiers of different sizes, shapes and capacity. We have models that are as light as 9kg that can be easily relocated. Some of the popular models that we provide to our customers are TTR 200, TTR 300, TTR 400, TTR D, TTR 500 D, TTR 250 HP, TTR 250 EX. Our products can be simply ordered in different cities of Nigeria such as Lagos, Abuja, Ibadan, Kano, Port Harcourt, Aba, etc.
Working principle of Desiccant Dehumidifier
The Desiccant Dehumidifier consists of a desiccant wheel which consists of silica. Silica is a great absorbent of water, hence, when humid air is passed through the wheel, silica absorbs the moisture from the air and dehumidifies it. The absorbed moisture is drained towards the outside of the Desiccant Dehumidifier in the form of vapor when silica is heated by a mechanical process. After silica gives away all the moisture it again becomes capable of absorbing the moisture from the humid air. This type of dehumidifier does not need a water drainage system as moisture is drained out in the form of vapor.
Contrast between Desiccant Dehumidifier and Condensation Dehumidifier
While both Desiccant Dehumidifier and Condensation Dehumidifier remove moisture from the air, both have a contrast working principle. In the Desiccant Dehumidifier, no condensation process is involved. While, Condensation Dehumidifier works on the basic principle of condensation. Desiccant Dehumidifier consists of water absorbents such as silica while the condensation dehumidifier does not have any such absorbing agent. Heating process is involved in the Desiccant Dehumidifier but no such process occurs in the condensation dehumidifier system. Since heating process is involved in the Desiccant Dehumidifier it is more energy consuming than the condensation dehumidifier. Generally condensation dehumidifier makes less noise than the Desiccant Dehumidifier. Condensation dehumidifier works smoothly in the regions having high temperature. Desiccant Dehumidifier is required for low temperature or when the environmental condition is very harsh. Hence both Desiccant Dehumidifier and condensation dehumidifier have their own importance in different situations.
Things to remember during installation of Desiccant Dehumidifier
A user should know that the Desiccant Dehumidifier is used for low temperature and harsh conditions such as in marine or ship environment. So the user should be sure a Desiccant Dehumidifier is his requirement. He should have proper power supply system for the operation of the system. He should keep good knowledge of the maintenance of the system. He should know the cleaning system of the dehumidifier as it requires cleaning on a daily basis.
Different models of Desiccant Dehumidifier
Although Vacker Nigeria supplies various models of Desiccant Dehumidifiers in Lagos, Abuja, Ibadan, Kano, Port Harcourt, Aba, etc., we are only going to discuss about the three models for general knowledge of the people. Some of our popular models are as follow:
Stainless steel model TTR 250 HP
This type of system is generally designed to install in a ship or in a marine environment. As a ship has to travel many locations through the ocean our model is capable of withstanding every kind of harsh situation and yet operates its function smoothly. It can operate in temperature as low as -20 degree Celsius and as high as 35 degree Celsius. It is capable of performing in humidity ranging 0% RH to 100% RH. It also has a very high air flow rate. The dehumidified air can be flown to very long distance as a long flexible hose can be connected to the system.
Stainless steel explosion proof model TTR 250 EX
This model is generally installed for the explosion proof environment. It is very light to carry as it weighs only around 21kg. It can work in the environment having temperature ranging from -20 degree Celsius to 35 degree Celsius. It can dehumidify the air having RH ranging from 0% to 100%.
Light weight model TTR 200
It is a very light model and easy to carry as it weighs only about 9kg. It can generally be installed in warehouses or room that is small in size. It can work in temperature range from -15 degree Celsius to 35 degree Celsius and relative humidity that range from 0 to 100%.
