Carpet cleaning: Dehumidification in the drying room

Dehumidifiers and fans for accelerated drying

Carpets are treasures!

Often valuable and especially in a mosque the prayer rugs are more than just decorative flooring. For the intensive use during the times of prayer the rugs should better be as clean as possible.

So the processes of cleaning and drying should be adapted to the individual fibres and material characteristics of the carpeting. As little as an incorrect drying temperature may already cause damage to the material.

Please note: The entire cleaning process including drying should take up as little time as possible. The less favourable the natural climate conditions are for drying, e.g. due to high humidity values in warm regions, the greater will be the importance attached to the auxiliary drying devices. The right drying technology from Trotec can be a real competitive advantage here.

The actual cleaning process can only be accelerated to a limited extent, proper high-quality cleaning takes time. The time for pre-drying in the centrifuge can also be reduced only with restrictions or at great economic expense. There is however a good deal of savings potential whilst drying in the drying room. Here the applied technology is decisive for the required drying time. And if you use perfectly well-matched Trotec devices you will not only save time, but also unnecessarily high operating costs.

Rely on the Trotec formula for the quick drying of carpets with residual moisture:
powerful dehumidification +
air circulation  = quick and non-destructive drying

Maximum dehumidification performance using Trotec dehumidifiers

The actual drying of residual moisture in the carpet is accomplished by means of dehumidifiers with a high dehumidification capacity. Condenser dryers with powerful rotation compressors suitable for continuous operation in the drying chamber are in great demand. Extremely high humidity levels and simultaneously high temperatures by far exceeding the 40 degree mark are hard work for drying devices. At the temperatures prevailing in the drying chamber you should therefore only use dehumidifiers that can cope with these ambient conditions.

Good to know: Trotec condenser dryers are characterized by the robustness, reliability and performance ability. The mobile condenser dryer TTK 800 f.i. ranks among the top-selling condenser dryers with the most stable value retention in all of Europe!

Equally well suited for the mild drying of sensitive carpets are the mobile and thus flexibly applicable dehumidifiers of the TTK professional series and of the TTK-S series on the one hand and the stationary high-performance units of the DH and DH-S series on the other hand, which meet even the highest requirements and are also adequate for all room sizes. Trotec's product range of commercial dehumidifiers comprises drying devices with a dehumidification performance between 30 and 1,160 litres per day. Starting with small mobile dehumidifiers such as the TTK 200 with a dehumidification performance of 35 litres per day or the industrial condenser dryer DH 145 S which with a maximum dehumidification performance of enormous 475 litres per day is ideally suited for drying operations in the drying chamber.

Permanent air circulation using Trotec fans

Trotec provides a comprehensive range of radial and axial fans with air flow rates between 400 m³/h and 54,000 m³/h. Suitable for every room size, with adjustable speed levels and requiring only little maintenance even in continuous operation.

The mobile turbo fans TFV 10 S and TFV 30 S are predestined for the variable application in the drying chamber. Owing to their compact dimensions these high-performance fans can be positioned in between the carpets and then used in three different installation angles (0°, 45° or 90°). The warm room air is optimally distributed and the drying period noticeably reduced.

The high-performance fans of the TTV series, e.g. the TTV 4500, impress with their enormous air flow rate of up to 4,500 m³/h. To prevent stagnant air even in large drying rooms.

Good to know: Most fans of the TTV series are cascadable, hence their performance increases along with the requirements.

  • Dehumidification in fertilizer storage facilities

    The production of hygroscopic materials in the chemical industry requires intuition and sure instincts. After all, the substances love water and readily absorb the moisture contained in the ambient air. And this can have disastrous economic consequences. As it binds water, the material starts sticking together and clumping, and may become unusable in the worst case. One example are fertilizers. If...

  • Dehumidification in wind turbine component depots

    In the construction phase of a wind turbine, the plant’s components are sometimes stored for months in very large depots such as halls or temporary storage tents prior to assembly. To prevent damage caused by corrosion or frost during storage, a sophisticated system for humidity regulation is necessary.

  • Dehumidification of appliance rooms

    Proper protective equipment and perfectly functioning devices are indispensable for operations by the fire brigade and the THW. Protective suits, hoses and tubes must be absolutely leakproof. Tools such as spreader forceps and bolt cutters have to be in an immaculate condition, just like technical devices such as high-performance fans, cutting torches and headlights. In order to store the whole...

  • Dehumidification in drying rooms

    In the production of electronic equipment and semiconductors humidity can lead to electrostatic charge. For this reason, sensitive processing steps are being performed in cleanrooms and drying rooms. The mobile adsorption dryers of the TTR series are ideal for these high requirements during dehumidification.

  • Dehumidification dispatch & transport

    In the silo as well as during transport hygroscopic bulk material is endangered by humidity – this holds true for both the chemical and the pharmaceutical industry. Humidity continues to be a problem after production, because the products are mostly packed into damageable cardboard boxes with paper inserts. Therefore, dehumidification also plays a key role for storage, dispatch and transport.

  • Dry air storage

    The requirements in dry air storage are very much alike in many industries: Bacterial growth on foodstuffs, powders going lumpy, corrosion on metal parts – all can be prevented, when the relative humidity is constantly kept below 50 %. A value of 70 % RH suffices as mould protection. The dehumidifiers of the TTR series along with the matching data loggers represent dehumidification systems which...

  • Dehumidification in timber yards

    In the past, when storing wood it had been rather a challenge to keep the moisture of furniture wood below the required 9 per cent, for example: If no dehumidifiers are used, seasonal temperature differences and fluctuations in air humidity cause the wood moisture to rise. This considerably affects timber quality and results in problems during processing and even in reject.

    The different temperatures at which the wines are fermented are usually set by the winemaker via the thermostats integrated in the tanks. But the use of dehumidifiers is still indispensable. If the humidity level is low, particularly red wines can develop in the best way. Furthermore, a drying device is able to fight condensation efficiently. Trotec has a series of high-performance drying devices...

  • Dehumidifying when storing raw tobacco

    The refinement of raw tobacco is considered a fine art. Far from the major tobacco industry smaller factories produce special mixtures with highly diverse flavours. But here, too, the firms usually have to purchase the raw tobacco, coming from many parts of the world, by container load. And since in most cases the product is not processed all at once, the tobacco leaves have to be stored away...
