The appliance uses a fan to suck up the air to be dehumidified and pass it through the refrigerator circuit evaporator. In this way the temperature of the air is lowered to below its dew point and the vapour condenses to form drops of water that are collected in the appropriate tank.
ATTENTION: The water collected inside the tank IS NOT drinkable. Do NOT drink this water anyway.
The air thus dehumidified is passed through the condenser that raises its temperature slightly higher than the initial value. In this way the quantity of humidity contained in the environmental air is gradually decreased until it reaches the desired value.
The dehumidifier reduces the humidity of the walls and floor of the room, as well as of the materials contained therein.
The defrosting cycle:
If the temperature goes below 16°C ice may form on the evaporator. The ice must be regularly melted to avoid it reduces the air passage. The electronic board automatically performs the defrosting cycle (see ahead). During the defrosting cycle the fan stops. The time it takes to melt the ice changes with the humidity and temperature.
PRODRY TD models have a panel construction for easy maintanance and cleaning.
