Meaco DD8L Zambezi is a dehumidifier with sorption/dessicant technology. Most dehumidifiers are designed with compressor technology which works quite well in temperatures from about 15 degrees and warmer. At lower temperatures the compressor dehumidifier becomes extremely inefficient and uses a lot of energy, and there is a risk of the unit forming ice which often leads to it shutting down, despite the high humidity. A desiccant dehumidifier has the great advantage of maintaining the same high capacity down to zero degrees. This means that it fits well in boats, caravans, camper vans, garages, storage rooms, attics and crawl spaces. The sorption technology also means that Meaco DD8L Zambezi has a low noise level, which makes it well suited in homes, laundry rooms, drying rooms, shower rooms and bathrooms.

Meaco DDL8L Zambezi has an energy saving program for laundry – called Laundry +

Laundry + is a dedicated program specially developed by Meaco to provide the best effect in laundry and drying rooms. One of the most common causes of condensation, moisture and mold problems comes from drying clothes indoors. The moisture in the clothes evaporates and condenses on cold surfaces, where mold and moisture damage can occur.

All dehumidifiers can be used to dry clothes, but some do it better and cheaper than others, and this includes Meaco DD8L Zambezi. Ask your mom how best to dry clothes and she will give you the answer that you should hang them outdoors on a hot summer day with some wind.  Meaco DD8L Zambezi tries to emulate these conditions. Meaco DD8L Zambezi has an extra powerful fan to create a powerful airflow. This allows the air to extract moisture faster. In addition, Meaco DD8L Zambezi has a smart damper that controls the air flow, not only upwards but also to the side.

While other dehumidifiers only turn off when the moisture is gone, the Meaco DD8L Zambezi senses the humidity in the room throughout the drying time to adjust fan speed and dampers. With a smart sensor system in Meaco DD8L Zambezi you can dry your clothes as quickly as possible in combination with using as little power as possible.

If you compare with a classical dryer the Meaco DD8L Zambezi will give you equally good results, but with significantly lower power consumption.


Meaco DD8L Zambezi can be switched on and off at any time

Many dehumidifiers have a timer where it turns off after a certain time. Meaco DD8L Zambezi has a timer that does much more than this. The Meaco DD8L Zambezi has a built-in clock and you can make Meaco DD8L Zambezi turn off at a certain time, and you can also turn it on at any certain time. You can program Meaco DD8L Zambezi to run only at certain times of the day.

This can be practical in many different situations. Maybe you want the Meaco DD8L Zambezi to turn off when you are falling asleep, but you want the Meaco DD8L Zambezi to start again when you are already sleeping. Maybe you have too small fuses and cannot use multiple devices on the same power outlet at the same time. Then you can make the Meaco DD8L Zambezi start when the washing machine is done. If you have solar energy on your roof, you can run your Meaco DD8L Zambezi when the electricity is free. Meaco DD8L Zambezi is the world’s first dehumidifier in its class that offers such features in a timer.


Meaco Control 20+

Meaco DD8L Zambezi takes control if you make a mistake. Sometimes you put Meaco DD8L Zambezi on the lowest power to save power. In many cases a dehumidifier is found in a boat, in a cabin, in a camper or in a garage. These are places where you are not present every day, and then you probably connect a hose to the dehumidifier so the water can flow out through a floor drain or other outlet.

But what happens if the moisture increases, or the temperature varies sharply? Condensation occurs and the degree of moisture increases. You have then put your dehumidifier on low power, which cannot handle the current humidity level. If Meaco DD8L Zambezi detects these changes, Meaco DD8L Zambezi automatically takes control. Meaco Control 20+ works so that if the moisture reaches 20% RH (Relative Humidity) over the setting you have chosen then there is obviously something wrong. Then the Meaco DD8L Zambezi starts running full power both on the fan and in the drying until the situation is under control. When the levels are back to normal, the machine returns to normal operation.

Another good feature is that Meaco DD8L Zambezi automatically starts to the same operating mode when the power returns after a power failure. This is especially important in places where you do not have a daily overview of the dehumidifier, e.g. in a boat, camper van, cabin, garage or storage room.


Meaco DD8L Zambezi has a digital display

Meaco DD8L Zambezi has a display where you can always see the temperature and humidity in the room where the dehumidifier is located. Here you can also choose the humidity level you want the dehumidifier to be set on. You can control the timer, the airflow and a variety of other functions.


Meaco DD8L Zambezi has the unique Meaco Control Logic feature

With Meaco Control Logic you can dry the air without using more energy than necessary. The Meaco DD8L Zambezi monitors the humidity to the humidity level you have selected. When the level is reached, the machine is completely shut down. This means that both the drying process and the fan stops, which saves power but also increases the lifespan of the machine.
