Onion Storage With Desiccant Dehumidifiers

Onion Storage With Desiccant Dehumidifiers
Onion storage with desiccant dehumidifiers may not be the first thing you think of when you think of places that typically have high humidity.  However, when storing many different kinds of produce a desiccant dehumidifier would be the most efficient choice for the job especially when the items are in cold storage.  If you choose to use a refrigerant system you would find out real quick that it would freeze up on you and have to spend a lot of time going through a defrost cycle and not a lot of time actually removing moisture from the air.  A desiccant dehumidifier on the other hand removes moisture from the air while it is still in a form of a gas.  So you don’t have to worry about it freezing.

Onion storage with desiccant dehumidifiers is the most widely accepted form of removing the moisture in the industry today.  This is because it can be tricky when storing these items so that they are still good for consumption.  The tricky part is maintaining a constant temperature and relative humidity in the storage environment. A cool, dry space will ensure that the onions reach the consumer without any decay or roots sprouting.  These units should be equipped with a humidistat to accurately control the moisture even when no one is around to watch it.

As long as your unit is sized properly to the amount of air to be dried then you will be pleased with the results.  Onion storage with desiccant dehumidifiers is the best way to ensure your crop is stored correctly so it can reach the consumer in the best condition possible.
