Aggreko offers two types of industrial rental dehumidifiers: refrigerated and desiccant.
Rental Refrigerated Dehumidifiers
Refrigerated drying works best with a strong temperature differential, which means that refrigerated dehumidifier rental units are most effective at high ambient temperatures and high humidity. Their effectiveness may be significantly reduced in colder climates.
A rental refrigerated dehumidifiers is simply an air conditioner with both hot and cold coils in the same unit. A fan draws the room's air over the cold coils to condense the moisture, then moves the air through the hot coils to heat it to its original temperature. For larger applications, Aggreko has a wide range of air conditioners and heaters to provide the right refrigerated dehumidification package.
Rental Desiccant Dehumidifiers
Aggreko also offers rental desiccant dehumidifier units, which are custom-manufactured with an internal silica-gel wheel. This wheel simultaneously absorbs water vapor in one section of the wheel, while the silicate is being regenerated (dewatered) in another section. When available electrical power is limited, these dehumidifier rental units can be engineered to be regenerated by heating with natural gas, propane, or steam.
Successful rental dehumidifier applications include:
- Manufacturing and construction, for reducing the drying time of wet concrete, speeding up painting and coating operations, or minimizing corrosion,
- Process applications, such as stabilizing or preserving food products,
- Restoration of buildings and manufacturing facilities after flood damage.
