The radiant heat process transfers heat energy through radiation energy waves. Radiation passes through the air and its energy is released when it strikes an object.
The transfer of heat or thermal energy between neighboring molecules in a substance due to a temperature gradient. Conductance always takes place from a region of higher temperature to a region of lower temperature, and acts to equalize the temperature differences.
The process of removing atmospheric moisture and thus lowering the relative humidity from a defined space or area.
The conversion of a liquid to the vapor state by the addition of latent heat.
The ratio of the amount of water in the air at a give temperature to the maximum amount it could hold at that temperature; expressed as a percentage.

The Drysmart Trailer is an outstanding tool in our box. I am more apt to call for it than some of the other drying trailers (dessicants) in our yard. The heat rise and cfm combined with it’s ease of use makes it a great product. And good job to you a…
The DrySmart is easy to set up, reliable, and very powerful. Its results on drying structures have been nothing short of phenomenal. My company performs well over 1,200 water losses a year and before last year had never dried structures with convecti…
I just wanted to say thank you for making such a great drying trailer. I have rented a lot of heat drying trailers, but after renting yours I decided to buy it and have been really impressed with the performance of the DrySmart trailer. I look forw…
We first took delivery of our DrySmart convection-drying trailer in December 2006. It has hardly been in our warehouse since. We have been so pleased with its performance in drying residential and commercial structures that were fully saturated that…
The results of the DrySmart trailer never cease to amaze me. Having used this technology on large commercial and residential losses of all types, I can honestly say that it exceeds my level of expectation on every job. The small amount of time requir…
