Next-Generation Industrial Desiccant Materials
The new technology we have developed is a new class of next generation industrial desiccant materials, with the world’s best kinetics of operation.
The key innovation is that they pull water vapor from the air like normal desiccants, but can release the water vapor back out at a much lower temperature than any other desiccant available today.
Their practical use in the real world, is to replace the silica gel used in commercial dehumidifier rotors, to allow operators to turn down the regeneration temperature from 400°F to 122°F.
The advantage of lower temperature operation, is that it allows standard HVAC systems to be retrofitted to be more energy- efficient, and provide a new source of clean drinking water by simply combining a cool operating desiccant dehumidifier feeding and evaporative dehumidifier. This transforms HVAC equipment into water generating machines worldwide.
A Revolution in Humidity Management
“Our new designer desiccant is revolutionary for the humidity management market, because it lowers the operating exhaust temperature by up to 75% with 5X the performance.”
This promises to reduce operating expenses and emissions from many industries including pharmaceutical, food packaging, dairy production, chemical processing, cosmetics manufacturing, petroleum refining and office building HVAC management systems.
Using this product goes beyond just finding a solution to the energy consumption issues of HVAC. It has the additional impacts of energy-efficiency and on-demand potable water generation. Our product is set to drastically disrupt not only the humidity management marketplace but also the water marketplace. To fully embrace use of this material means endless opportunity to innovate and rethink how products are working from the ground up.
From the laboratory to the real world. Watch how our materials are going to reduce the amount of energy we use and solve for the world water crisis.
