Mar. 16, 2010 – Dri-Eaz Products has just announced the availability of the new LGR 3500i, a portable dehumidifier that the company says offers breakthrough performance and unique intelligent sensing features.

According to Dri-Eaz, engineers have pushed water removal capacity to a new threshold for portable dehumidifiers. The LGR 3500i delivers 170 pints at AHAM while only drawing 10.5 amps.

Like the 2800i dehumidifier introduced by Dri-Eaz last year, the 3500i utilizes onboard sensors to automatically monitor inlet and outlet conditions and displays these values on the control panel. The digital controls also enable humidistat set-up for ongoing moisture control.

The 3500i uses the same compact platform as the 2800i, weighs the same, and features the same well-balanced easy-transport design. The housing is constructed of rugged rotomolded polyethylene housing, first introduced by Dri-Eaz to the restoration market and long favored for its durability, ease of maintenance, and professional appearance.

The 3500i is also remote-sensing capable. When used with the HygroTrac Remote Monitoring System (purchased separately), customers can monitor system performance and drying environment conditions in real time from any Web browser.
“We believe the LGR 3500i is truly a game-changing piece of equipment,” says John Ormsby, VP of Sales and Marketing. “Its superior performance and HygroTrac compatibility put this unit in a new category of power, efficiency and effectiveness.”

Planning for the 2800i and the 3500i began in earnest about two years ago, well ahead of the EPA-mandated deadline for phase-out of ozone-damaging refrigerants, including R-22. The EPA stipulated that equipment manufactured after 2010 use more environmentally friendly refrigerants like the 410A refrigerant now used in Dri-Eaz’ current dehumidifiers.
