Ebac SPP6A Commercial Dehumidifiers

The Ebac SPP6A was originally designed and built for NATO forces and is now available for industrial and commercial applications. This model is made up of the most durable and tough material as well as possessing the most sophisticated feature we have seen.

1. Room Coverage Based on 24 Hour Moisture Removal
2. Noise Level
3. Low Temperature Operation
4. Quality of the Continuous Drainage Option Included (Ease of hose attachment, location above the ground to improve the flow of water w/ gravity and provides the hose)
5. Bucket Capacity Not Applicable
6. Size, Weight and Maneuverability
7. Ease of Access to Bucket & to Remove and Replace Not Applicable
8. Energy Rating
9. Ability to Access Filter & to Remove, Clean and Re-install Not Applicable
10. Quality of Construction & Warranty
11. Value for the Price


  • Solid construction includes hermetically sealed internal components, stainless steel fittings throughout the entire machine, integral refrigerant compressor cut-off device, and copper refrigeration circuit throughout for long life
  • Shock and vibration tested design in accordance with military transport requirements
  • This model has 2 humidistat functions – the first one controls the on/off function of the dehumidifier unit based on the set point of the humidity and the second one is factory pre-set at 60% relative humidity and is connected to a warning indicating system to notify attendants there is a malfunction that requires attention
  • Hot Gas Defrost that is designed to turn on every 40 minutes during normal operation for approximately 8 minutes to insure there is no build-up of ice at lower temperatures. Special feature to this model is a temperature controlled defrost consisting of a temperature sensitive device that will operate in conjunction with the defrost control during a wider range of temperatures. This restricts the defrost operation to the times when the evaporator coil is at 28.4 degrees Fahrenheit or -2 degrees Celsius
  • Indicator box allows operating status to be confirmed without entering the dehumidified area
  • High temperature cutout: should the temperature in the room become excessive, specifically 122 degrees Fahrenheit, 50 degrees Celsius, a thermostat within the compressor casing will open and dehumidifying will stop for a period until it can reset itself


  • Considering all that it has to offer it does not provide much in 24 hour moisture removal and area coverage


The Ebac SPP6A is best for someone who is looking for a rugged dehumidifier for storage facilities that require the highest reliability and ruggedness due to exposure to harsh and extreme conditions from dramatic swings in temperature and humidity. It possesses a unique construction of the best materials along with important indicators to allow the user to be able to monitor the conditions in the dehumidifying area from the outside as well as safety features to automatically shut it down if extreme temperatures occur. Furthermore, it will notify you of growing humidity concerns inside the drying area that could be possible due to some malfunction that needs investigating. If there is any shortcoming it would be its capacity since even in saturated conditions it will only remove 25 pints of moisture per 24 hours and its 150 cfm of air-flow warrants its use for areas no larger than 375 square feet. However, we can see the benefit for this specialty dehumidifier in industrial and commercial applications like non-climate controlled storage facilities where its contents are exposed to temperature and humidity extremes.
