HEAT vs DESICCANT DRYING, Which is Better.

In the world of restorative drying there are three primary types of equipment used to create a building atmosphere that enhances evaporation:  refrigerant dehumidifiers, desiccant dehumidifiers, and heat systems.  For jobs beyond just a few rooms contactors have two primary options – desiccant dehumidifiers and heat systems.  As to which is better, that depends upon […]

Direct & Indirect Heat Drying Systems

Compared to dehumidification, heat drying greatly increases evaporation rates and speeds the drying process.  Until recently, all heat drying systems employed indirect fired furnaces.  Now direct fired systems have entered the marketplace claiming:  “25% better fuel efficiency over indirect heating systems. 100% of the BTUs are delivered directly into the structure. There is no wasted […]
