Desiccant dehumidifiers have been utilized for years to facilitate industrial process drying like food processing and pharmaceuticals. They’re being employed more and more in the water damage restoration sector.
A few building assemblies and materials will retain water a lot more tenaciously than other ones. For those materials the dry environment that is created by a desiccant dehumidifier significantly may assist in removing moisture. Usually, it’s complex assemblies that consist of a variety of voids and materials, and the semi-porous and dense materials such as plaster, hardwood, concrete, as well as large timbers which may benefit the most with desiccant drying.
Due to the heat needed for regeneration, a desiccant dehumidifier is less energy efficient than a refrigerant-based dehumidifier and yields around 1 – 2 pints per kilowatt for an electric reactivation model. If there is a short supply of power it might be challenging to use an all desiccant plan for drying out a whole building with available power, yet portable desiccants will make it possible to concentrate the low-grain drying on certain difficult spaces in which their use greatly will accelerate the process of drying. Once again, plaster, hardwood flooring, concrete, and crawlspaces include some of those circumstances.
Large desiccants, from 3,000 – 10,000 CFM, may be run off generators or ““dropped” power or utilize alternate fuels such as propane for regeneration. The models are especially appropriate for larger commercial buildings and offer an attractive economy of scale. Large desiccants may be utilized rather than most smaller LGR dehumidifiers that have obvious setup benefits. Also, desiccant dehumidifiers are the only reasonable choice as temperatures within the affected space are below 65-degrees Fahrenheit.
Phoenix Dry Max LGR Dehumidifier is 6 percent smaller than their nearest dehumidifier and it has wheels and integrated handle, in addition to onboard storage for its condensate hose and power cord. Micro-Channel condenser permits them to pack a lot of performance inside a more compact dehumidifier.
Also, Phoenix added a four-line display that offers users all the details needed to take readings right from its home screen.
