Eva Dry E-500 Mini Dehumidifier [Fix Kegerator Condensation] + Hands on Review

New and Improved Eva-dry E-500 Renewable Mini Dehumidifier

Like many homebrewers and craft beer lovers, 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 E-500.  The Eva-Dry E-500 contains desiccant beads  that absorb 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 E-500 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.  I also use on of these in my fermentation chamber.

    Jessie.. the problem with that is it is one time use. The Eva Dry is reusable, so you’re ahead after the 4th renewal.

    I bought this a while back and had no luck. i have a small 5 cuft freezer with 3 kegs and a collar. like you i tend to get a lot of condensation. the eva dry was in there for over a week and the condensation never changed and the unit stayed dry (not like i needed to renew the beads). has anyone else had the same experience; did i just get a bad unit and should try it again?

      I am having the same issue, I do not understand. I have had it in the chest freezer/fridge and there is still continually condensation on the walls/floor and the Eva-dry doesn’t appear to be soaking up any moisture. hmmm
