The magic of the desiccant dehumidifier

Desiccant dehumidifiers work by drawing air across a rotating wheel which contains an absorption material, such as silica gel. As the air passes through the wheel, moisture is removed. The wheel continues to rotate, removing and drying out any form of moisture from the air using built-in heaters.

Our Andrews Desiccant Dehumidifiers hire range includes four popular models: the DS40, KT190, KT2000 and the high capacity KT6000!

These powerful and reliable units can produce extremely low levels of relative humidity, for applications in the pharmaceutical sector or petrochemical industries – where dry conditions are essential. The units are also commonly used to dry out areas that are difficult to access or have hazardous conditions, such as bulk fuel storage tanks, ships holds, submarine and other marine environments.
