Energy efficiency and a user friendly interface make our ION612 dehumidifier one of the most practical and functional appliances you can bring into your living space. This sleek design features a modern appearance that complements the many advanced features built into the unit. Weighing only 6 kg and measuring 29 cm wide by 47.5 cm high, this model offers excellent versatility that fits easily into any room.

The tank can hold up to 2 liters at a time. As air passes through the appliance, the cutting edge Silver Nano filter thoroughly cleans by killing bacteria on contact. While reducing humidity and dampness, the ION612 will also improve overall air quality so everyone can breathe easier. An 8 hour timer is programmed in for greater operation control when the user is away or unable to check the dehumidifier.

Along with the convenience of a timer, our ION612 model is also equipped with an automatic restart function when power is lost. As soon as power is restored, the unit will immediately begin operating again at the same settings utilised prior to the failure. A unique laundry mode is also included to assist when drying garments.

The Built In Ionizer, releases negative ions into the room to recreate the fresh feeling you get from nature.

Just like our other IONMAX models, the ION612 also comes with its own continuous drainage hose. A simple part can be attached to the unit to permit water collected to run from the 2 liter tank directly into the nearest drain. This convenient addition allows the user to cut down on total time spent maintaining the dehumidifier without hindering its ability to work effectively all day long.

Does damp / humid air really affect me?

You can tell if your home indoor air is too damp or humid if there is always condensation on windows, or you spot mould growing indoors. Excessive moisture in indoor air can have effects on not only your health but your home as well. In short, here’s how excessively damp or humid air can affect you: Dust mites reproduce in damp environments >55%RH People who suffer from Asthma, eczema and other allergies find that inhaling dust mite droppings can make their condition worse. Mould grows in damp environments > 80%RH Mould gives off mould spores (seeds) Inhaling these spores can lead to various health and respiratory conditions. A dehumidifier keeps indoor humidity levels at an optimum level (30-50%RH) and helps stop dust mites from reproducing and mould from growing, helping to maintain healthier indoor air and alleviate symptoms that occur from air that is too damp.

Does running a desiccant dehumidifier cost a lot of money?

Even though the wattage is high, desiccant dehumidifiers are actually very energy efficient. All energy that is consumed by the desiccant dehumidifier is returned to the room as heat, which can be beneficial as it replaces the heat that you would have generated from other sources such as heaters or radiators. Desiccant dehumidifiers also dry the air more efficiently, allowing them to operate at shorter periods than compressor based dehumidifiers (3.5 times faster according to tests at the University of Southampton) when removing the same amount of water. This means that they can actually be cheaper to run compared to compressor dehumidifiers. Furthermore, a dehumidifier can help to reduce your heating costs by making the air dryer. Dry air is much easier to heat than damp air (less water molecules in the air to heat up). In the long run, the money you save on the heating costs will outweigh the money that you spend on the dehumidifier.

How does a desiccant dehumidifier work?

Desiccant dehumidifiers draw air from the room over a filter, and then passes it over a rotating wheel that is full of a material that is used to adsorb excess water out of the air. In Ionmax desiccant dehumidifiers, the material used is Zeolite. The Zeolite wheel then becomes saturated and needs to be regenerated. This is done when a heater in the base of the dehumidifier blows warm, dry air over the Zeolite to force the moisture out of the wheel. The Zeolite is now ready to dry again. The warm, wet air from the wheel hits a metal surface inside the dehumidifier, which ensures the excess moisture condenses and the water drips into the internal tank. The heat used during the drying process is then mixed with the dry air to ensure that the air that comes out of the dehumidifier is not just drier, but a few degrees Celsius warmer than the air that came in.

Does a desiccant dehumidifier need any maintenance?

No. The dehumidifier automatically regenerates the desiccant internally and you will never have to replace it. Ionmax desiccant dehumidifiers have no replaceable parts, either. For the filter, just maintain the filter as instructed in the manual and it will be good for the life of the machine.
