Liquid desiccant dehumidification

May 26, 2010

Kathabar Dehumidification Systems, Inc. liquid desiccant dehumidification systems deliver precise and reliable energy efficient temperature and humidity control to a wide range of industrial, commercial, and institutional applications regardless of air inlet conditions. Kathabar dehumidifiers also provide critical bacterial control by capturing most airborne bacteria, viruses, and mold.

More energy-efficient than refrigeration and dry desiccant systems in most applications, liquid desiccant dehumidification systems can offer the added benefits of energy recovery and utility cost savings. With an integrated systems approach, this equipment can efficiently use waste heat and also support on-site power generation and cogeneration.

All Kathabar equipment is made of fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) with industrial grade construction to provide less maintenance and long equipment life. Kathabar liquid desiccant systems, most efficient when cool or cold dry air is desired, can handle airflows from 750 to 84,000 cfm.
