Ivation 13-Pint Desiccant Dehumidifier works without a compressor, which is why it can be quieter and more efficient (in terms of energy-saving) than other devices.
Here’s how it works: the air to be dried passes through a desiccant rotating wheel that removes the water vapor directly from the air and holds it while rotating. The moisture-laden desiccant then passes through a regeneration sector, where the water vapor is hit by a heated airstream and exhausted to the outside. The process is continuous, allowing for highly effective and uninterrupted dehumidification.
