  • Product Overview

    The Sunpentown SD-46T Dehumidifier with TiO2 and UV Light controls excess humidity and helps to rid your air of germs, bacteria, allergens, and odors. Designed to cover up to 300 sq. ft., this unit removes 46 pints of moisture per day under AHAM conditions, or 60% relative humidity at 80°F. In addition to air-sanitizing technology, the SD-46T features dual operating speeds, a wide range of humidity settings, and an easy-to-use touch-button control panel.

    Easily Controls Excess Humidity

    Did you know that an excessively humid environment is poised to become a breeding ground for symptom-aggravating allergens such as dust mites, mold spores, and mildew? Too-humid environments are also desirable spots for cockroaches, termites, and other annoying pests. In addition, high moisture can wreak havoc on wood furniture, wood floors, and other moisture-sensitive materials. Fortunately, the Sunpentown SD-46T Dehumidifier can help you control these damaging effects.

    Using the unit's soft-touch electronic control panel, start by adjusting your room's humidity level in 10% increments, including 50%, 60%, 70%, and 80%. Then, choose between two separate fan speeds — Low and High — or a continuous dehumidification mode to further customize operation. For reliable operation under a variety of conditions, this Sunpentown dehumidifier runs effectively in temperatures ranging from 41°F to 95°F. Another benefit — it's considerably quieter than comparable models of the same capacity. The unit exerts 45 decibels of sound during operation, the approximate equivalent of a heavy rain shower.

    Filters and Sanitizes Room Air

    Along with dehumidifying, the Sunpentown SD-46T helps to filter and sanitize the air in a room. The unit is equipped with an internal UV germicidal light and a TiO2 (titanium dioxide) mesh filter. When the ultraviolet light shines on the TiO2 filter, the filter takes on antibacterial, antiviral, and fungicidal properties. Together, these two components create oxidizers that work to eliminate germs, bacteria, and viruses from incoming air. The unit also features a washable air filter that captures larger particles and allergens and a carbon filter that absorbs unpleasant odors. The result of these processes is clean, purified outgoing air.

    Multiple Drainage Options

    The Sunpentown SD-46T offers 2 choices for drainage: manual or gravity-guided drainage. To manually drain the unit, simply empty the water collection bucket when it becomes full and replace. The dehumidifier is equipped with a full bucket light that turns from blue to red when the tank is full. To prevent overflow accidents, the unit's automatic shut-off function cuts power in the event that the water container becomes full, and you are not available to empty it. For gravity-guided drainage, the unit features a continuous drainage port. To set up this configuration, simply connect a drainage hose (not included) to this port and direct the hose downward into a nearby drain. Collected water will continuously flow out of the unit.

    Other Top Features

    • Large Water Container — The unit's water container holds 11.6 pints. That means you will make fewer trips to empty the container.
    • Automatic Defroster — Automatically cuts power to the unit if ice builds around internal components. Operation resumes after ice melts.
    • Time Delay Auto Protection — For safe, uninterrupted operation.
    • Caster Wheels — These concealed wheels help the unit slide easily from room to room.
    • ETL-Approved — Meets ETL safety and compliance standards.

    Comments about Sunpentown 46-Pint Dehumidifier (SD-46T) with UV Light:

    I put this dehumid. in a crawlspace of my cabin. The space is 24'X30', from 26" tall down to 5",so it was well within the capabilities of this unit. I have it hooked to a Hartell condensate pump to pump the condensate up to the drain( only 1' of lift needed.)I was not going to pay 1500-2500.00 for a commercial type unit, and I had limited space anyway. I needed cold temp. operation, and also auto power up on power failure. This unit is only 21" tall, so it fit in the space, even with top discharge. It has run for two weeks, and has made a huge improvement in the humidity level in the space. It is adjustable from 50% on up, in increments of ten.It has a continuous run mode as well.

    In the specs on Sylvane's website it says that the fan shuts off when dehumidification is not on.This is not true of my unit, the fan runs constantly, even when the compressor is cycled off.That is the only thing that I do not like about this unit, everything else is exactly what I need. At 4 amps, it is much cheaper than running a heater down there, and safer. My crawlspace is very well insulated, so the dehumid. keeps the space warm and dry. I will see how it does this winter, I'm hoping it stays above 41 degrees in the space so it does not frost the coil. I don't think this will be a problem, as the dehumid. warms the air as it removes moisture.
