Press Release Summary:
Model UDT-14 Desiccant Dehumidifier controls humidity in large comfort conditioning and commercial building applications with airflow requirements of 3,000-100,000 cfm. It operates jointly with packaged make-up air or air handling units, and when supplied with optional process supply fan, it can function as stand-alone unit for air conditioning and dehumidification. Liquid desiccant dehumidification provides low specific heat ratio of 0.3 at design condition of 86Â°F and 70% RH.

DryKor of Fayetteville, Ga., a leading manufacturer of indoor air quality equipment, has introduced the UDT-14 desiccant dehumidifier for controlling humidity in large comfort conditioning and commercial building applications with airflow requirements of 3,000 to 100,000 cfm.
The standard UDT-14 is a unit designed to operate jointly with packaged make-up air or air handling units. The UDT-14 can provide variable latent and sensible load reduction and has a capacity of 5,000 cfm of 100% outdoor air. When supplied with an optional process supply fan, the UDT-14 can function as a stand-alone unit for air conditioning and dehumidification.
DryKor's patented liquid desiccant dehumidification technology provides a low specific heat ratio (SHR) of 0.3 at a design condition of 86°F and 70% RH. Combining superior air filtration and disinfection capabilities inherent in the liquid desiccant process, the UDT-14 is an ideal active moisture control solution for both the new construction and retrofit markets.
The UDT-14 features include:
o Two refrigerant cycles for unprecedented management of a wide variety of sensible / latent heat relationships.
o A fully-programmable on-board PLC controller that functions independently or interfaces with most building automation control systems.
o DryKor's patented technology, two scroll compressors, DryKor's proprietary designed heat exchangers and solution pumps.
An example based on a Florida design condition of 91°F / 79°F db/wb (127 gr/lb) with input conditions of 5,000 cfm, is expected to yield a leaving condition of 76°F / 67°F (83 gr/ib), water removal of 17.5 gal/hr., with an SHR of 0.34, and EER of 13.3. Total power consumed per hr: 18 kW as compared to conventional air-conditioning which normally requires approximately 37-47 kW/hr.
