1) Wall drying after local water damages
Through the use of Infrared DRYPANEL® the rehabilitation of local water damage is not only simplistic, but for the affected customer it’s a tool to gain absolute comfort. The DRYPANEL® is installed directly in the affected wall surface with pedestal or wall assembling. Silently the masonry is then heated by infrared radiation-C, so the dampness on the diffusion-open side flees into the room air. By using a condensate-dryer or because of transverse ventilation, the saturation of air in confined spaces is prevented. DRYPANEL® don’t affect the living comfort, because of the small required space, no need for a closed airspace and a noiseless operation.
If a partition is not diffusion-open on both sides, the Infrared DRYPANEL® is attached to the impermeable side of the wall surface. Due to the physical building pressure effect, which is described in the Product information, the dampness is then delivered to the opposite (vapor permeable) wall surface to the ambient air. The average drying time for double diffusion open brickwork (25cm vertical coring brick) is about 8-10 days.
During the drying of exterior walls it is important to ensure that - if the outside is diffusion-tight and must not be damaged - a clocked operation is selected to prevent the displacement of the dampness to deeper wall layers (exact switching cycles depending on the application and experience ). The off cycles should be selected in a way that allows the displaced dampness to balance at this time, so it can be dried by suction effect. WARNING: Significantly longer drying cycles are to be expected by this application!
2) Drying of door and window frames
The models DRYPANEL BTS28 and DRYPANEL BT64 are ideally suited for use in narrow niches and window and door jambs. Thus, potential issues in the course of a complete renovation can be specially treated from the beginning and the rehabilitation cycles are shortened in this process as well.
3) Insulating layer drying - supplement in the base area
This process is conducted with a compressed air method. The injected compressed air issues from the base area between the screed and masonry. The dampness which is stored in the exiting air enters then the base area of the masonry.
In this case the BTS28 is an easy and simple solution in base installation. Due to the low power input, there can easily be connected up to 15 devices to a 16A circuit. All these devices can be positioned in the base area of the room. Through the local warming of the masonry water entry is prevented and the total drying time is greatly reduced.
1) Pedestal mount
Thanks to the innovative floor stand concept, the two feet are easily attached on the frame construction by using a supplied thumbscrew and without any use of tools. In transport mode, the feet can be fixed on the inside to avoid loose parts during transport.
The wall mount is a very common type of mounting and can be implemented very differently. In safe areas, the DRYPANEL® can be easily mounted on a nail or hook located in the wall, because of the fold to the framework. For non-secure areas a solid screw connection between DRYPANEL® and brickwork can be done by mounting brackets.
3) Installing with telescopic poles
Due to mounting brackets, which are mounted by a knurled screw on the frame structure, Infrared Drypanels® can be connected with telescopic poles in several different positions. The great advantage of this type of mounting is that the masonry is not damaged by nails or screws. Therefore, this type of installation is mainly used for walls with small water damages.
A firm screw connection between the DRYPANEL® and the ceiling is made by a mounting bracket. WARNING: sufficient ventilation of the equipment is needed!
