DESICONTM...Today's Most Efficient, Cost Effective Desiccant System
DESICON is unsurpassed in its capability to absorb moisture from the air. Instead of condensing moisture like an air conditioner, the DESICON system removes moisture directly using a rugged, long-lasting desiccant rotor. The moisture from the arena is continuously removed from the desiccant using inexpensive natural gas heating, and expelled directly outside. This process eliminates condensation, so no refreezing is required. Your equipment can then run at maximum efficiency, reducing energy costs.
DESICON technology is so efficient that it can replace up to three standard refrigeration units. While conventional refrigeration systems maintain relative humidity levels at approximately 75% at 55°F within the arena, the DESICON system dries the air so thoroughly that it can maintain relative humidity levels as low 20-30% during unoccupied hours. At this RH level the ice condition is optimized, the refrigeration system operates at maximum efficiency, and you save expensive system capacity and energy dollars.
