SICCO Electronic Dehumidification System

How it works:

The essential components of the drying unit are dustless, colour-changing desiccant beads and two fans.

The automatic dehumidification and desiccant regeneration cycle operates continuously every 20 minutes as follows:

The circulating fan draws for 14 minutes interior chamber air across the desiccant and thus dehumidifies the chamber. During this phase, the one-way flap valves are open to the interior of the desiccator and closed to the exterior.

Afterwards the cirulating fan is stopped and the desiccant is heated electronically to initiate its regeneration. After one minute, the regeneration fan starts to operate and draws air in an opposite direction to the first fan. Due to the air flow,the one-way flap valves to the interior of the chamber are closed and the valves to the exterior environment are open. The desiccant is heated for another four minutes to release the captured moisture to the ambient air.

At the end of the cycle, the circulating fan operates for one minute with ambient air to cool down the desiccant to the ambient temperature. Then the cycle starts again.
