What does dehumidifier capacity mean?

9th Jun 2019 | |

The capacity of a dehumidifier refers to the maximum amount of moisture that can remove from the air within 24 hours. This capacity is based on optimum operating conditions.

For example, our Compact Domestic Dehumidifier has a capacity of 19 Litres per day. This is based on a Relative Humidity of 90% at 32.2 degrees Celsius. A typical performance in conditions of 60% Relative Humidity at 26.7 degrees Celsius is 9 Litres per day.

A damper room with a warmer temperature will result in faster absorption, which can make warming the room that the dehumidifier is being used in beneficial if it is a refrigerant dehumidifier.

As our equipment have duct hoses and do not require tanks to be emptied our dehumidifiers should operate at or close to their maximum capacity.
