Custom Natatorium Dehumidifiers to Help University Save Millions

September 2006
Heating/Piping/Air Conditioning Engineering;Sep2006, Vol. 78 Issue 9, p66
The article emphasizes the significance of adopting the custom-manufactured equipment configuration by Dectron Inc. for the University of Missouri's Rothwell-Brewer Student Recreation Center Complex in Columbia. The configuration is capable of introducing 100% outside air to purge the space effectively during superchlorination periods. The technology allows compressors smaller than those of comparably sized dehumidifiers, saving energy while delivering equal moisture-removal capacities.
