Andrews expands dehumidifier hire range with cost-effective desiccant unit

We are pleased to introduce one of the industry’s most economical dehumidification units, which is available to hire with immediate effect.

The KT2200 combines impressive drying capacities with minimal power consumption and is specifically intended for use on projects where low dew point temperatures exist.

Despite being a high performance drying solution, this unit uses just 10kW of power per hour – making it twice as efficient as many similar products currently being offered by competitors.

Our latest models have been designed by a specialist manufacturer and incorporate all modern technologies to provide customers with an enhanced performance but lower operating costs.

A single unit will keep an area of up to 7,000m³ dry or dry out an area of up to 3,500m³, underlining its suitability to large environments including construction sites, petrochemical facilities, storage areas, warehouses and tank drying applications.

Each chassis has been constructed from sturdy materials to ensure a greater robustness for situations where the KT2200 is deployed outdoors. A purpose-built rain cover delivers further weather protection and allows the unit to be sited in just about any challenging open-air location.

The unit can also be fitted with up to 40 metres of ducting for increased flexibility, making it ideal for scenarios where the product itself cannot be located inside the application that requires drying.

Other features and benefits include:

  • Extraction rates of up to 480 litres every 24 hours – ideal for large areas
  • Quiet operation – can be left running without disrupting others
  • Fully automatic – fitted with digital humidistat for close moisture control
  • Compatible with ducting – for projects with site restrictions
  • Large airflows – perfect for high capacity drying
  • Reduced power consumption – affordable running costs
  • Simple installation – enabling immediate use
  • Robust construction – can be used in challenging environment

Speaking before the launch, Technical Director Matthew Stapley said: “We have been looking to add another desiccant dehumidifier for some time and are delighted to now offer our customers a product that will save them a significant sum of money via greatly reduced power consumption.

“The KT2200 is one of the most adaptable dryers available anywhere and can be both automatically and manually controlled depending on the requirement.”
