Heat Pump Dehumidification / Drying

Our associate company Wessex Environmental Services in conjunction with Drycool Engineering Systems (LINK TO drycoolengineering.com) has undertaken many Industrial scale Heat Pump Drying projects both in the UK and overseas including countries such as Germany, USA, China, Switzerland, France and the Middle East. The products that are typically dried include the following:

  • Fruit
  • Confectionary
  • Vegetables
  • Clay
  • Roof Tiles
  • Timber
  • Meat
  • Seeds
  • Grain
  • Ginger
  • Textiles


Heat Pump Drying is a very effective way of removing moisture from products and can generate considerable savings in the production process in terms of speed of drying and energy efficiency both of which reduce operating costs as well as providing much more controllable water extraction.

We have many examples of significant savings and production gains that have been made by large companies that DES has worked with recently and in the past.

Some key recent examples include significant reduction in drying times for various dried fruit manufacturers and confectionary manufacturers and significant improvement in breakages for Roof tile manufacturers and Ceramic pottery manufacturers due to a much more controlled drying process prior to firing.
