Many people know how a regular dehumidifier works, but few understand how the portable ones do. Eva-Dry specializes in desiccant dehumidifiers, which allows them to be lightweight and easily portable. This is important to note, since Eva-Dry focuses on dehumidifiers for office spaces, crawl spaces, gun safes, and the like, which call for a smaller and more durable machine.
But what is “desiccant” exactly? Desiccant material is mainly described as a material that naturally attracts moisture. This can come from gases or liquids. This moisture then stays in the material until it is released again through heat.
Eva-Dry dehumidifiers work with a technologically advanced natural desiccant that absorbs moisture. This desiccant can then release moisture using heat and can be used again and again. No messy spills and no harmful toxins around your family and pets.
The drying process works like this: The desiccant draws in air. The water molecules are removed from the air and retained by the desiccant inside the unit. To remove the moisture from the desiccant, it is then heated in a well-ventilated area and the water is released as steam, allowing the unit to be used again to take water from the area you need to dry!
Eva-Dry takes pride in using desiccant dehumidifiers because they run silently, allow for less contamination, and are easily portable. They don’t even need batteries or electricity to absorb moisture! You can normally get 4-6 weeks of usage before they would need to be renewed, and most Eva-Dry dehumidifiers last for over ten years. Because desiccant dehumidifiers don’t need to cool the air before drying it out, these types of dehumidifiers are great in colder climates. We strive to make the purchasing process easy and affordable.
