Munters Offers Temporary Desiccant Dehumidification Systems for Rental Fleets

AMESBURY – Munters is expanding its current production of rental desiccant dehumidifiers for customers around the globe needing temporary drying or humidity control. In 2010, the company sold its damage and restoration contracting service, Moisture Control Services (MCS) and is now offering dehumidification equipment to rental companies.

Munters manufactures the HCD Series dehumidifiers for large scale, deep drying projects requiring a dewpoint at 40°F and the DryCool™ Rental Series which are hybrid desiccant systems using waste heat for reactivation while delivering a cool, dry 45°F dewpoint air. At the heart of these systems is the company's patented Honeycombe® desiccant rotor sized as deep as 400 mm. All systems have a rugged, weatherproof unit casing constructed to withstand any environment and can reach lower dewpoint temperatures compared to other refrigeration-based dryers. These systems are designed to have faster field startups and greater ease of use to meet the rigorous demands of the rental market and can be shipped worldwide.

"We exited the rental damage restoration contracting business and now can supply these systems from any of our three U.S. factories," said Scott Haynes, VP of Sales, Marketing and Service for Munters. "We pride ourselves in the manufacturing of our patented systems for today's rental market that demands more customization and quick response."

Since the 1980s Munters has been the first manufacturer to lead the industry in applying desiccant systems for temporary drying. Munters has provided temporary humidity control equipment for applications such as blasting and coating, seasonal drying, construction drying, and restoration projects caused by natural disasters including Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans in 2005 and the U.S. Pentagon in Washington, D.C. during the 9/11 terror attacks.
