Dri-Eaz releases new DriTec dessicant
BURLINGTON, WA — Dri-Eaz® recently unveiled its new DriTec 4000i desiccant dehumidifier, which produces very dry air in cold environments, according to a press release.
“This winter’s snowstorms and icy blasts have wreaked havoc for many property owners, even in southern states that are sometimes spared the worst of winter storms,” the company says in the release. “The Dri-Eaz DriTec desiccant now provides a solution for restorers struggling to dry buildings in less-than-ideal conditions…outperforming LGRs and traditional refrigerant dehumidifiers by a significant margin.”
The DriTec is especially adept at drying dense materials like hardwood, plaster and concrete and is compact at two-thirds the size of other portable desiccants so that it fits in the same space as an LGR.
Capable of maintaining drying rates on the second half of restorative drying jobs, the unit uses intelligent controls, which display real-time temperatures and relative humidity information, relying on internal sensors to monitor system operations and optimize performance.
“When humidity drops below 30 or 40 percent, the performance of refrigerant dehumidifiers really starts to flatten out,” notes Brandon Burton, director of technical training. “This reduced performance can easily add a day or two to the drying process. Restorers can greatly benefit from adding the DriTec to their drying system.”
The DriTec 4000i also includes dual thermostat control, allowing users to set both maximum and minimum humidity.
“There’s a strong perception in the market that desiccants can dry materials like hardwoods too quickly and cause damage,” notes John Otero, director of restoration products. “By allowing the customer to control both minimum and maximum setpoints, the DriTec’s humidistat system will help eliminate this concern.”
