Desiccant technology is a category of HVAC equipment used for dehumidification. A desiccant material is a material that attracts and holds large amounts of water vapor. Desiccant materials are used in complete desiccant cooling units, air pretreatment devices, and HVAC system enhancements. The instructional module has been developed to introduce engineering students to desiccant technology and the use of desiccant systems. In the typical engineering curriculum, a number of courses could contain topics related to desiccant systems. Thermodynamics, heat transfer, HVAC, thermal systems design, and alternate energy systems courses are appropriate for desiccant related topics. The instructional module contains lecture material and review questions and exercises relating to desiccant systems and their uses.
