Shelter Static Dehumidifiers

Shelter Static Dehumidifiers (SSDs) protect commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) equipment in mobile shelters from rust, mildew and corrosion for up to two years without desiccant change

What are shelter static dehumidifiers (SSDs)?

Shelter Static Dehumidifiers (SSDs) are containers shielded from electromagnetic interference (EMI) that may be filled with desiccant.

The SSDs that we sell are about the size of a large dresser drawer and are intended for use in mobile environments, like military humvees. They are equipped with humidity indicator plugs and cards to provide a quick visual determination of the internal desiccant’s saturation level.

How do shelter static dehumidifiers work?

Shelter static dehumidifiers are essentially large desiccators that can have RFI shielding. For example, military shelters experience frequent periods of inactivity. During these periods, the shelters are sealed-up and often left in harsh environmental conditions. The shelter static dehumidifier provides controlled breathing during diurnal temperature cycles to protect the shelter’s integrity.

Additionally, air that passes into the shelter through the shelter static dehumidifier during cooling periods will pass over its desiccant bed. This desiccant removes the moisture from the air before intrusion into the shelter and protects equipment from rust, mildew, and corrosion.


Benefits Of Using Shelter Static Dehumidifiers

Some benefits of using shelter static dehumidifiers include:

  • Controlled breathing during diurnal temperature cycles to protect a shelter’s integrity.
  • Protect contents from rust, mildew, and corrosion for up to 2 years.

Industry Applications

Shelter static dehumidifiers are often used for mobile locations. For example, the use of Humvees for mobile command posts.

1. How long will the SSD protect my shelter?

Depending on conditions, the SSD can protect equipment for up to two years without desiccant change.

2. Will I need to open the shelter to serve the SSD?

No, you won’t have to open the shelter. The desiccant can be replaced from outside the shelter or enclosure.

3. What type of desiccant is required?

The SSD uses inexpensive bulk silica gel desiccant in accordance with mil-d-3716. We carry a full line of desiccant products and can supply replacement desiccants for SSDs.
