In this article we are going discuss on different types of dehumidifiers. Dehumidifiers are classified on basis of their principle of working, applications and mounting. Based on principle of working it mainly divided into condensation type and desiccant type dehumidifier. On basis of application it classified as home dehumidifiers, industrial dehumidifier, swimming pool dehumidifier and warehouse dehumidifier. On basis of its mounting it can be of portable, floor, ceiling, wall mounted type.
As mentioned before on basis of working principle dehum units are mainly classified into condensation or refrigerant type and desiccant type dehumidifiers. Refrigerant type of unit consists of condenser, evaporator and compressor. Humid room air suck by unit passed over evaporator where it cooled to due point at which humidity converted into physical water. This water either collected in container or drained out with help of hose pipe. Desiccant dehumidifier consists of a desiccant wheel made up of silica gel which has property to absorb water and hence humidity. Humid air passes over this desiccant wheel and due to property of desiccant, humidity from incoming air get absorbed by this wheel. Then this desiccant wheel passes through hot air where humidity absorbed removed and wheel gets ready for absorption again. this process get repeated continuously to achieve required humidity.
On basis of applications of units, it is mainly classified into following units.
High humidity at home, indoor swimming pool not only damage properties but also it can create heath issues for occupants. High humidity in these places give rise to mould, fungi which creates bad smell and health problems like cold, cough and asthma. Hence controlling humidity in these places is very important.
