Oct. 13, 2010 – According to Dri-Eaz, the new Dragon X2 mobile furnace offers easy transporting, the ability to direct heat to three separate areas of a structure and three days’ on-board fuel supply. The Dragon X2’s trailer-mounted design also saves space for other critical equipment on restoration trucks.

The Dragon X2’s restoration-focused features grew out of Dri-Eaz’ research with customers.

“Restorers really needed extended heating time without refueling,” said Marcia Neu, marketing manager. "Engineers equipped the Dragon X2 with a built-in high capacity fuel tank, which provides up to three days of run-time. This eliminates the hassles of daily refueling or having to use external tanks."

Delivering 100,000 BTUs and 1500 CFM through triple eight-inch outlets, the Dragon X2 simplifies the task of adding heat to the restoration job. This is especially critical in cooler climates, but is also important whenever air outside can be heated and ducted in to speed the drying process.

“If you’re not adding heat to your drying environment in these condtions, chances are you’re not getting the building dry as quickly as you could,” notes Brandon Burton, education manager for Restoration Sciences Academy.

The Dragon utilizes an indirect-fired design, which keeps combustion air and exhaust completely separate from the air it heats. This allows the Dragon to deliver heated air without adding the fumes, smoke or moisture from combustion. When used with the supplied remote thermostat, the unit can provide steady, even heat in a variety of situations.

The Dragon X2 is has its own weatherproof housing and is mounted on a sturdy DOT-approved trailer. It requires only a standard 115V circuit for operation. The unit features two lockable, weatherproof cabinets for securely storing ducting, tools, and other equipment. The company says the Dragon is suitable for use for any temporary heating situation.
