What is an adsorption dehumidifier?

An adsorption dehumidifier uses a rotating wheel (rotor) with moisture adsorbing properties to remove water from an air stream passing through it. The wheel is afterwards dried (regenerated) by another, the heated flow of air. This means that moisture from one flow of air is transferred to another, warming the flow of air by taking advantage of the rotating wheel. This differentiates an adsorption solution from traditional cooling based (or mechanical) dehumidifiers. You’ll be able to find a more detailed description along with an animation and illustration of the technology at cotes technology at our webpage.
