Rapid Response pump: leading the industry, then and now

It’s been almost six years since we first launched our revered Rapid Response pump – and it’s still as popular as ever among our customers.

Simple in both its design and concept, the unit’s primary advantage is the fact that it can legally be towed by small vans and medium-sized vehicles in the event of an emergency.

There is no need for a dedicated delivery lorry, no need for an expert engineer to oversee installation, and no need for any specialist training.

Although small in size, our Rapid Response model can pump up to 130,000 litres of water for every hour of operation, with a self-priming feature allowing it to be up and running within seconds of arriving on site.

All you need to know about building dryers

The Andrews building dryer range can handle up to 75 litres of dehumidification capacity per hour! Among this range is the FD40DV, which is one of the most popular units available for hire in the UK.

Our robust dryers are frequently used for building construction applications that require high levels of drying power. The process of dehumidification helps to accelerate the rate of drying out wet processes in a gentle manner, alleviating possible shrinkage and cracking problems. Our specialist building dryers provide cost-effective, efficient drying and can be used in conjunction with heaters to boost the drying process.

Let’s talk refrigerant dehumidifiers

Refrigerant dehumidifiers, work by drawing damp air from a particular area into the unit itself, before passing it over a cold evaporator coil, bringing the air below its dewpoint temperature. This causes the moisture contained within the air to turn into condensation, the condensation is then collected from the unit’s coils and either drained into a collection tank or pumped away to a suitable drain. Our high capacity and reliable industrial building dryer range can handle up to 600 litres of moisture removal per day!

The magic of the desiccant dehumidifier

Desiccant dehumidifiers work by drawing air across a rotating wheel which contains an absorption material, such as silica gel. As the air passes through the wheel, moisture is removed. The wheel continues to rotate, removing and drying out any form of moisture from the air using built-in heaters.

Our Andrews Desiccant Dehumidifiers hire range includes four popular models: the DS40, KT190, KT2000 and the high capacity KT6000!

These powerful and reliable units can produce extremely low levels of relative humidity, for applications in the pharmaceutical sector or petrochemical industries – where dry conditions are essential. The units are also commonly used to dry out areas that are difficult to access or have hazardous conditions, such as bulk fuel storage tanks, ships holds, submarine and other marine environments.
