Abstract

The lack of using natural method to remove moisture and preserve items that easily defect due to moisture are when there is not enough heat sources like in raining season beside this usual method it cannot extract the water moisture and it is not portable as household device. In this study, a house hold dehumidifier device (DC) have been used to test the efficiency for reducing the water content beside extract the moisture content on the sample test that have been moist. The house hold dehumidifier device have been placed in a closet (DC) that contain several samples and the test have been monitored every hours. The parameters are time taken (s), volume of water remove (ml), condensation rate (ml/hour), temperature (°C), relative humidity (%) and mass (g). Five wet clothes sample were used to removed moisture and extract its water content for every hours. The comparison of the data was analyzed to identify its efficiency. Results showed that dehumidifier closet capable to reduce water/moisture content up to 99.0% within 11 hour. The distribution of losses on total volume of moisture/water content during extracting for 5 samples which were 42.0 %, 33.9 %, 28.8 %, 26.3 % and 26.2 % respectively. Thus, it can be concluded that this study succeed on reducing water/moisture content on wet samples and half percent succeed for extracting process. Therefore, this study can identify the possibility of dehumidifier closet uses as reducing, extracting and decreasing the moisture content for the long lasting items and  it could preserve the quality of stored items.
