Operating principle of the drying process
Because of innovative flat panel technology, class C infrared radiation is generated by the appliance’s inernal heating plate, which in turn warms the surface of the wall, and the air in between the panel and the wall. The warm air draws the dampness out oft he wall and the warm damp air then rises through ventilation slots at the top oft he panel, drawing in cool dry air from the opposite surface of the wall. Depending on environmental factors, walls 50cm thick or more can be heated right through by the infrared radiation generated in the panel.
Infrared DRYPANEL® use this unique drying process to speed up the process of restoration after water damage. The process is effetive and prevents damage to the walls, yet causes minimal power supply loading, and consumes very little energy.
Laboratory experiment of Drypanels®
In fall 2011 an international corporation from the department of water damage restoration conducted detailed practice tests with simulated water damage. A brick wall was saturated with water over a longer period. Two DRYPANEL® were used for the drying process. This process was documented accurately by means of thermal imaging camera and a spherical dampness sensor (see chart). The results were surprising for even the most experienced specialists - after already 8 days the masonry was dried out without any danger of reabsorbing dampness from the surrounding air!
