Heat and Humidity: When to Consider Adding a Desiccant Dehumidifier

June 1, 2023

Ryan Creagan, Director of Client Development for Polygon West, showcases one of Polygon’s indirect fired heaters and discusses the importance of temperature and relative humidity control on construction sites.

Ryan emphasizes that customers often require a heating solution that not only provides adequate temperature but also maintains the desired relative humidity. Polygon’s indirect fired heaters are highlighted as a suitable option, delivering clean heat without the combustion contaminants associated with direct fired heaters.

However, it’s important to note that adjusting the heat alone does not directly control relative humidity. As the heat is increased, the relative humidity decreases, and vice versa. To address this challenge, Polygon utilizes desiccant dehumidification in conjunction with their indirect fired heaters.

By incorporating desiccant dehumidification, Polygon can effectively control both temperature and relative humidity on construction sites, ensuring a comfortable and optimal working environment.
