Custom Desiccant Dehumidifiers for the Humidity Control Industry
Innovative Air Technologies was founded in 2001 as a manufacturer of low humidity desiccant dehumidifiers. Ever since our beginning, we’ve been utilizing state of the art technologies and almost 50 years of experience to solve some of the world’s most complex moisture and temperature control challenges. Whether it is missile engine testing or food processing applications, we’ve built it.
Our equipment removes moisture from the air by means of a desiccant: a substance that adsorbs water (in a vapor state).
This desiccant (silica gel, molecular sieve, or activated alumina) is impregnated into paper sheets which are then wound into a wheel (called the rotor).
The rotor is divided into two sectioned air streams (process and react) and rotates very slowly (3-30 RPH).
When the processed air (outside air or return air from conditioned space) is passed through the rotor, the moisture in the air stream is adsorbed by the rotor, leaving the dried air to be sent to the designated space via process fan.
The water from the processed air that has been adsorbed by the rotor now needs to be removed in order to continue the indefinite process.
The reactivation air provides this task. The air stream is normally outside air that is heated to 200° – 310° F. This heat passes over the rotor and sets the bound water free. This air stream is extremely humid and is ducted outside.
