Dri-Eaz Products’ new portable environmental control unit brings maximum versatility for balancing temperature, humidity and air exchange. The new portable unit offers 1-ton cooling effectiveness with 470 cfm, plus dehumidification, focused heating and ventilation. It’s ductable for spot cooling and directing conditioned air or heat into specific spaces, while filtering room air and pumping out condensation. Designed to help customers manage temperatures and control humidity anywhere it’s needed, the new environmental control unit includes two interchangeable 8-inch duct rings for spot cooling, focusing heat, or for air exchange. Its rotomolded housing is treated with Microban antimicrobial product protection, and the sturdy shell protects it from dings or dents that commonly plague metal housing designs. The EB1400 is easy to operate with digital temperature controls, an automatic pump, and cord and hose pockets for fast access and storage.

The Dryvex MC5200 is a portable dehumidification unit that can be pulled by a one-ton truck. The unit features a powerful heat-based drying system that uses clean outside air-conditioned to a low relative humidity of 5 to 15 percent. The fresh, extremely dry air is blown into the wet structure via flexible ductwork. The dry air absorbs the moisture from the wet contents in the structure. Then a second return blower accelerates the drying process by extracting moisture-laden air from the structure. The unit can take 12,000 square feet or 170,000 cubic feet of saturated space from 90 percent relative humidity to below 15 percent in the crucial two- to three-day period before secondary damage from mold and bacteria growth can begin. The unit helps reduce reconstruction and insurance costs related to water damaged building.
HFT 70RS Rental Equipment Trailer
Accommodating the transportation of a variety of rental equipment from site to site, the main deck on the Terex HFT 70RS rental equipment trailer is 29 feet, 5 inches (8.97 meters) long and 102 inches (2.59 meter) wide along with additional length on the 9-foot (2.74) gooseneck deck and the 10-foot (3.05 m) extended hydraulic ramp. The folding tail creates a 6-degree break-over angle, which allows a wide range of equipment to drive up the ramp and onto the main deck without using a winch. The HFT 70RS comes standard with an automatic hydraulic tail lock system, and its starburst decking provides excellent traction to move equipment on and off the trailer. The tail section can lift and carry up to 30,000 pounds (13,608 kilograms) of equipment, and the trailer has an overall net capacity to carry up to 70,000 pounds (31,750 kilograms).
