Desiccant Dehumidifier in Use

A Desiccant Dehumidifier is an essential piece of equipment in the drying process at a water loss. The machine has 3 tubes. The first tube extracts the wet air from the affected area and into the machine. In the machine, the wet air is absorbed by a silica gel disc. The disc rotates and at the bottom of the disc is a heater. The heater dries the air that the disc absorbed and pushes it out of the property through the second tube. The third tube then takes the warm, dry air that is cycling through the machine, and distributes it into the affected area.
