Hired drying arrangement assists school renovation development

Andrews Heat for Hire was recently approached by a construction company after it took over the renovation of an academy school in West Sussex. With work in the latter stages, a hired drying solution was required.

Cold November temperatures in the region meant that it would take far longer than the time available for plaster and flooring to dry inside the new building. The contractor responsible for the project contacted Andrews Heat for Hire before one of our local experts visited the premises.

After carrying out a free site survey of the building and discussing the best solution with the customer, our engineer proposed the installation of an Aurora FH2000 alongside four ASF50 fans. The heating unit was capable of supplying up to 200kW of warm, dry air with the fans deployed simultaneously to maximise air movement.

Andrews Heat for Hire successfully protect wheat during harvest

Andrews Heat for Hire was recently contacted by the operators of a 2000-acre farm in Shrewsbury, who were having difficulties drying their wheat naturally and so required a hired drying solution to minimise the likelihood of spoilage.

During harvest season, UK farms are often affected by severe weather and wet conditions – with many farmers struggling to dry their crop which then results in a poor quality of grain. In this instance, a heating solution was necessary to ensure all crops were dry and ready for distribution.

Dryers help to restore conditions for leading food distribution company

When a leading food distribution company suffered a leak in their storage building, a significant quantity of frozen goods, beverages and other products were immediately at risk. The client – who was responsible for supplying to partners in the catering industry as well as retail outlets – called Andrews Dehumidification Hire seeking an urgent drying solution.

The leak was caused by warm air in the building’s ceiling void condensing moisture on the pipes that feed the glycol chilled system. As a result, a tailored solution was recommended which included two DH150 and four FD40 dehumidifiers designed for drying buildings.

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.
