Eva Dry 500 for Kegerator Condensation + Hands on Review


Like many of you, I use a chest freezer for chilling and serving kegs. Eva Dry Kegerator Condensation The big downside I’ve experienced is with that is… condensation.  Not just beads of water on the sides, I had pooling water in the bottom.  Not a good thing.  This varies by how often I’m in it and the weather, but the fact is, a chest freezer just isn’t designed to deal with condensation like a refrigerator is.

Enter the Eva-Dry EDV-500.  The Eva Dry contains a desiccant material that absorbs moisture.  As this material absorbs moisture it also changes color.  Dark blue means it’s dry and pink means it’s becoming saturated.  The great thing about the Eva-Dry is that the desiccant material is reusable.  The unit contains a built in heater that drives off built up moisture.  When it becomes saturated, plug it in overnight and it’s ready to go again the next day.  Mine usually lasts a couple months before needing to be regenerated.

I’ve also started using on of these to handle condensation in my fermentation deep freeze.

The Eva-Dry EDV-500 has kept my kegerator dry for years.  Check out my extensive Hands on Review including condensation trials.

    @Adam: I have the ED 333 too. It works fine for my fermentation chest freezer/temp control unit. Lasts about 1 month before I even consider recharging. Longer when I’m not doing a lot of brewing/changes/opening of the chest.
    The Gruin works just like the ED. They even look about the same with the only functional difference is the ED has the plug as a swing out nub and the Gruin uses a chord that you can detach when not in use.

    And what is your opinion on the eva-dry 333. I have it and personally think it is more than enough for a small space like a kegerator. As long as you check on it frequently enough it should be good.

    Thanks for the link to the gurin. I might pick that up and move the ED 333 to my small kegerator.
