Dri-Eaz Sahara Air Movers
Moving air is vital in the damage / restoration
drying process. Air flowing across a wet surface creates evaporation and thusly keeps
moisture continuously moving across the surface.
I have recently returned from a trade show where I researched several other competing drying blowers, and none
compare to Dri-Eaz from an ease of use and durability standpoint.
What I like about the Sahara Air Movers
I immediately took note to the design of these drying fans since they all have a new underside vent that dries the
area directly under where the unit is sitting. This is very clever. All three of the Dri-Eaz Sahara turbo dryers are:
- Easy to handle, pickup and move around
- Extraordinarily rugged. In fact, Dri-Eaz makes the most durable products I have ever tested.
- Stackable for storage
- Easy to disassemble and clean
- Protected with MICROBAN which prevents growth of bacteria, mold and mildew
- Equipped with recessed controls which protects them from impact and minimizes switch problems
Features of the Pro X3 Model:
- Has its own circuit breaker
- Daisy chainable meaning you can plug up to 3 together in a line without using an extension cord.
- Uses lower amps
What I do not like about the Sahara Air Movers
As with all light commercial / industrial air movers, these models are noisy.
I recently talked to a friend who lived in an apartment building. Water from the upstairs
apartment leaked all over his living room along the joint lines in his ceiling. Air movers
were used in his apartment and he commented on how loud they are when in use.
However, these fans
are predominantly for this type of big moisture problem, so you will not be in your house when they are
running. That said, if you are going to be in the environment where
these are running for any extended period of time, wear hearing
