Air conditioning systems generally use cooling coils to control both air temperature and humidity. In most comfort-conditioning applications, this is an extremely efficient method of controlling humidity. In some circumstances, there is a benefit to adding a desiccant dehumidifier to the cooling system to control humidity separately from air temperature. The benefits are greatest where the moisture loads are high compared to the sensible heat loads, or where they peak at different times. For example, a building may be able to use 65°F outside air for cooling, but the air will still be carrying enough moisture to require dehumidification.
Typical Applications for Dry Cooling Include:
-Public buildings & auditoriums
-Hotels & motels
-Advanced HVAC systems
-Office building retrofits
-Medical office buildings
