DRYAIR Dry Room Design

​​​​​​​​​​​​​Manufacturers of moisture-sensitive or hygroscopic products can realize substantial productivity and quality increases, along with greatly reduced energy consumption by utilizing an efficient DRYAIR  Dry Room. Lithium, Lithium battery, pharmaceutical, food and glass manufacturers, as well as many other specialized applications have been using DRYAIR Dry Rooms successfully for many years. A Dry Room, built by DRYAIR, can provide many special advantages: 

  • Vapor-tight construction (panels, seams and air locks) reduces moisture sources to personnel load and makeup air load, and improve system stability and efficiency.

  • DRYAIR  turnkey responsibility assures single-source guarantee on room meeting specifications and reduced management cost for client.

  • Wall panel system facilitates room expansion or relocation; Improves efficient use of the panel system and avoids overlapping investment.

  • All components are sourced from world-class suppliers, improving stability of the system, prolonging service life, and assuring the end user more investment return.

  • DRYAIR  Global experience in Turnkey Dry Room fabrication and installation

  • DRYAIR Heat Recovery technology provides lower energy costs.

  • Professional design, strict material selection, and DRYAIR disciplined fabrication process ensures, safe.efficient operation for many years.

  • Significant Cost-Savings over most Domestic  Competitors​


DRYAIR Dry Room systems are custom-designed to meet all specific design requirements. Design criteria includes eight critical variables:

  • Maximum number of people operating in the room

  • The specified temperature, humidity control level, and cleanliness requirements

  • The available space for room construction, product, personnel doors, equipment doors, conveyer openings...

  • Regeneration heat source for ZCH-Series unit (electric, steam or natural gas)

  • Illumination, fire rating, or explosion safe requirements

  • Applications ~ Lithium/Battery, Pharmaceutical, Food manufacturer, Document / Currency storage, Marine, Small industrial, Residential, or Specialized Manufacturing Applications

  • Sensible internal heat load or moisture load factors

  • Room exhaust and pressure difference requirements

*The control level and the personnel moisture load in the space dictate the requirements for the size of the dehumidification air handling system required to maintain the room at specifications. With careful design, desiccant dehumidification systems capable of delivering air to a minimum of 0.007g/kg (-65℃ dew point) can be integrated into the dry room construction thereby allowing room operating levels as low as 1% R.H. to be maintained.

* Where floor space is available, a ZCH-Series dehumidification unit adjacent to the dry room reduces the possibility of moisture infiltration into the conditioning system, and eliminates long runs of ductwork. If this design cannot be utilized, a rooftop ZCH-Series dehumidification system can be incorporated.

DRYAIR Dry Room Selection

When all variables needed for the selection procedure are established by the end user, DRYAIR will provide a complete Dry Room Proposal. Our expertise in this application has enabled DRYAIR to pre-fabricate many of the components utilized, thus placing all dry room orders on fast-track construction schedules.

General Design

Dry Rooms furnished and installed by DRYAIR, are completely self-contained units. They include all essential mechanical conditioning equipment, controls, and plenums/ductwork designed to maintain the dry room at -35℃ +/-2º, 1% R.H. (0.197g/kg). Applications requiring Ultra low dew points (-60℃ +/-2º), are attainable. 

Submittals & Operation Manuals

Submittals will include shop drawings which indicate (1) all room dimensions and construction features, (2) electrical wiring diagram and electrical parts list, (3) mechanical system schematic with refrigeration circuit, and a complete vendors’ parts list for all components. The Operating / Maintenance Manual will detail sequential startup, operation, and shutdown with all pertinent control data and schematics.

Start-up & Instruction Period

At completion of room installation and start-up, DRYAIR will provide an engineering representative for complete instruction in the operation of the room, including controls and all related systems.


Installation and ability to maintain the specified control level for temperature and humidity will be guaranteed for one-year from the date of startup and/or customer approval that the room meets specifications.​​
