Dehumidification cooling equipment

Having read about the Drykor system on the DistList I was interested
to learn more as a supplier myself of dehumidification equipment.  I
arranged a meeting with their representatives who happened to be in
London this week. Having done an initial review of the system it
does have major benefits over more conventional desiccant systems
notably in efficiency, availability, air cleaning capabilities and
cost (for the larger scale units).  Whether the units are right for
a particular museum will depend on the room size and the relative
humidity required.  For straight dehumidification the smaller units
are expensive in comparison to conventional desiccant systems and
refrigerant units, it is from the middle of the range upwards that
major cost savings can be made.  The Drykor units have the added
advantage of about 6 deg.C of cooling, depending on the local
climate this may or may not be useful.

If you have a small room (up to 800 cubic metres), want a simple
installation (all desiccants require ducting of at least the exhaust
air) and require a relative humidity of between 40 and 60%rh then a
refrigerant machine would be fine, anything higher than that or if
the cooling and/or the air cleaning is an attractive feature then
consider the Drykor range.
