Installing a Drying Room Could Save Your Building

Installing a Drying Room Could Save Your Building

Protect Your Environment

 

Even when you cannot see it, moisture in the form of water vapour is all around us, held in suspension in the air. The relative humidity of the air, in many cases determines the extent of corrosion of certain materials, the speed at which moulds develop and the rate of increase in bacteria, which cause decay. Most materials and goods are best stored under cool dry conditions.

The Solution

 

The Calorex answer to this problem is its wide range of dehumidifiers suitable for every environment from warehouses and sub-stations to museums and garages. With a Calorex dehumidifier, almost any part of the building can become a drying room. Installation is quick and straightforward, with no need for separate heaters, fans or extraction systems. A power supply, drainage and the right positioning are all that is required.

A Better Way

 

Dehumidification is much more sophisticated than heating. It recirculates the same air and physically removes moisture from it. This alleviates the need to continuously reheat incoming air. Not only that, a dehumidifier will cleverly convert energy taken out of the room as moisture (latent energy), to create ‘sensible energy’ that can be used to heat the room, accelerating the drying process

How It Works

How It Works

The process of dehumidification involves moisture-laden air being drawn into a dehumidifier where the air passes across a refrigerated coil. The air is rapidly cooled below its dew point, condensing the water vapour and recovering its latent heat energy for re-use. The cooled air is then passed across the condenser where it is reheated and returned to the served area at the required lower relative humidity.
