Highly portable dehumidifier from Dri-Eaz

drieazeDri-Eaz Products is now shipping the LGR 7000XLi dehumidifier, the new dominant performer in the Xactimate Extra Large category. The LGR 7000 delivers extra-large dehumidifier performance in a compact, highly maneuverable unit that only weighs 107 pounds. Given its size and water-removal capacity – 61.5 litres per day at AHAM and 40 per cent better low-humidity performance than competitive units – the 7000 compares favourably with any dehumidifier in the industry in pound-for-pound performance.

Dri-Eaz Products is now shipping the LGR 7000XLi dehumidifier, the new
dominant performer in the Xactimate Extra Large category. The LGR 7000
delivers extra-large dehumidifier performance in a compact, highly
maneuverable unit that only weighs 107 pounds. Given its size and
water-removal capacity – 61.5 litres per day at AHAM and 40 per cent
better low-humidity performance than competitive units – the 7000
compares favourably with any dehumidifier in the industry in
pound-for-pound performance.
 
“We’re excited to get this unit in our customers’ hands and out in the
field,” said John Ormsby, president of Dri-Eaz Products and ProRestore
Products. “We know they’re going to be astounded by its performance,
portability, timesaving features and overall quality of build. Our
customers simply won’t be able to justify the purchase of any
competitive unit. Why? Because there aren’t any that even come close.”

The unit’s digital controls display plain-language status messages as
well as real-time temperature and RH conditions. A completely integrated
and oversized pump basin prevents accidental spills when moving the
unit. The rotomolded polyethylene housing is practically indestructible
and is designed to be stackable for storage. To inhibit the growth of
stain and odor-causing bacteria and mold inside the unit, the pump basin
and the pump basin liner are both infused with Microban product
protection.
 
The 7000 is also designed to make maintenance as simple as possible.
Operators simply remove four bolts and the cover easily lifts off to
fully expose the coils and the heat exchange block for cleaning. A High
Airflow filter from 3M ensures maximum airflow characteristics.
 
The 7000 delivers its remarkable dehumidification performance in a large
part due to a patent-pending heat exchange system called Advanced
Crossflow Technology. This technology, coupled with the unit’s onboard
sensors and control systems, allows the 7000 to automatically optimize
performance in a wide range of conditions.
 
Advanced Crossflow Technology was developed by Rick Black, engineering manager at Dri-Eaz. Black, who joined Dri-Eaz in February,
has over 22 years of engineering and project management experience. He
has worked on a number of specialized engineering projects including
aircraft propulsion and microelectromechanical sensor control systems.
His patents include a cooling system for a rocket payload section, and
an air data system for military aircraft.
 
Black appreciates the combination of technical challenges and applied
engineering that occur each day at Dri-Eaz. Dri-Eaz’ conducts virtually
all of its product design, engineering, testing and manufacturing in its
Burlington, Washington, facilities. Black is a strong proponent of
testing and led the Dri-Eaz Engineering team in conducting more 3,000
hours of testing prior to the release of this new dehumidifier.
