Portable Dehumidifier

Portable Dehumidifier – the battle against damp

Whether in the living room, in the bedroom or on the building site: an excessively high humidity in the surrounding air is almost always associated with the formation of condensation water. The water vapour contained in the air deposits on cool surfaces and causes undesirable condensation water, which can cause considerable damage to the immediate environment. Corrosion and mould formation are the most frequent consequences and not only attack materials and walls but also pose a health risk to you and your fellow human beings.

If you want to prevent the formation of condensed water and its negative effects on man and the environment, the use of a dehumidifier is indispensable. Only a dehumidifier helps you quickly and efficiently remove the surplus water vapour from the ambient air. Reduce the humidity to an appropriate and harmless degree and consciously ensure a comfortable living environment.

The right Portable Dehumidifier for your home

Do you have problems with damp walls, mouldy wallpaper or water formation on the window pane? Do not hesitate, but use a portable dehumidifier to lower the humidity in your home. Provide rapid and long-term remedial action to prevent damage to your building structure or health.

Dehumidifying performance

The dehumidifying performance is an important feature and should be considered for every room dehumidifier. This value specifies how much moisture can be removed from the ambient air in a certain time interval. The dehumidifying performance is expressed in the unit of litres per day (l / d) and is typically in a range between 10 and 60 litres per day in a smaller portable dehumidifier. In the run-up to a new acquisition, you must therefore determine the room size as well as the moisture content prevailing there and then select a portable dehumidifier with a corresponding dehumidifying capacity.

Using a Portable Dehumidifier in basements and cellars

A dehumidifier can also be used for basements and cellars. These rooms also have a high humidity risk; since little is aired, are often closed, and the dampness rapidly settles on cold walls. This ensures a perfect breeding ground for mould.

For basement and cellars , it is also advisable to install a portable dehumidifier. To prevent moisture damage and mould. The larger the space, we recommend a room dehumidifier with more recording capacity. A Basement or living spaces have different demands on a dehumidifier. A cellar with moisture problems is typically more moisture entry and is not so well heated like a living room. Often, even moisture, which from the summer into the walls, must be dehumidified in winter. In living areas, it is important that the humidity new entry is eliminated as quickly as possible to prevent mould growth. In addition, a low humidity is also useful, because less energy is required to heat the rooms.

Therefore, typically dehumidifiers with a higher capacity are needed in the basement. To reflect the lower ambient temperatures, it is important that the average evaporator temperature is low enough to dehumidify

Portable Dehumidifier in a Garage

Rust and corrosion is your car’s biggest enemy. And they are hiding in your garage – in the form of moisture in the air. Together they cause steel and iron to rust. And what happens next, you know only too well. Rust will make your car’s material absorptive and you will have to invest la considerable amount of money to get it back to working order.  So , in order to ensure that your well-loved car is protected, not only do you need an extensive care routine and to have it routinely  inspected, but it is equally important to have a good garage environment, where you know that your car is being well looked after. And at the end of the day, it all comes down to the level of relative humidity which should not be above 50%. Below this level it is virtually impossible for rust to form. But be advised! If the level should rise, corrosion will rapidly increase, so use a portable dehumidifier to prevent this.

Around the clock protection

The reason for moisture build-up on your car in the garage is relatively easy to understand. When it is warm, the atmosphere absorbs moisture over the course of the day.  Overnight, when there is a drop in the temperature, any moisture created will then settle on your car. The reason for this is simple: Cold air holds less moisture. If the air temperature decreases by as little as 10°C, the relative humidity will rise by over 30%. There is also another problem. The body of your vehicle is full of hidden crevices and hollow cavities.  Moisture resides in these crooks and crannies and in the hollow cavities where the corrosion conditions are ideal

A Portable Dehumidifier in a shed or garden house

Condensation and damp problems are not solely limited to the home environment but can also occur in sheds and garden houses.

The root cause of damp in sheds is often as a result of a lack of heating and ventilation, as sheds are predominantly a cold environment. In an unheated closed space such as a shed the air temperature rises and decreases very quickly, sometimes the dew point is reached and dampness advances out of the air and onto to the items that are being stored, making them damp.

By winter the temperature often does not rise enough again to dry out this dampness causing items to become damaged. Many people find their garden tools rusted, or when opening their shed or garden house experiences a frosty, stale smell or even mould.portable dehumidifier

To ensure that the garden tools and garden furniture stored in a shed are well protected over autumn and winter, it is important to keep it dry in order to avoid corrosion and mould. But, how do you create a dry space, which is exposed continuously in damp and cold?

Firstly it is important to make sure that the shed or garden house is inspected from outside. Joints, cracks, or holes must be repaired, otherwise water or moisture would be absorbed in the rain or moisture and moisture damage could occur.

Since the shed or garden house is potentially closed for a long period and has little ventilation, it would be advisable to place a room dehumidifier in there. It will regulate and control the excessive moisture continuously. This will help prevent too much moisture in the room while at the same time preventing mould and corrosion. Garden furniture and gardening equipment can then be stowed away in a dry damp free environment

The air in the rooms should not be too dry, but not too moist. This applies to industrial and commercial as well as to private use. Because of a balanced indoor climate, not only the building fabric and sensitive products but also the human being. The professional dehumidifiers from Flexiheat are suitable for all drying applications and are therefore clean and reliable. The TE & TK industrial dehumidifier range are used to ensure optimal production and product safety as well as the value of machines, inventory and buildings. They feature flexible and powerful dehumidification, even at low dew points. Compact, lightweight and stackable, and at the same time powerful in dehumidification:

Industrial Heaters

Industrial heaters –Warm air industrial heating options

Warm air industrial heaters are frequently used in almost all industrial buildings today from warehousing, manufacturing , to food processing or even building sites to provide warm air supplementary heating, emergency heating or even frost protection. There is a variety of industrial heaters that serve different purposes, but these days thanks to the ErP regulations they are all highly energy efficient, and with variable heat output (normally via an adjustable thermostat) that allow the industrial heater to match the heat requirement of the industrial buildings.

Being an unavoidable necessity, it is very important for business owners to provide heat via a warm air industrial heater in their factory premises to serve their purpose.

Install an industrial heating system to deliver warm air with an industrial heater can be easy task as we can provide a large range of models from industrial electric fan heaters or industrial electric heaters that can either be mobile heaters, that are manufactured to cope with regular site use with adjustable thermostatic control and variable heat output (ideal for temperature protection of a large space – i.e., frost protection) or fixed electric fan heaters to deliver warm air for a more permanent solution for your industrial heating requirements.

We also do our industrial heater range powered by other fuels such as gas or oil (red diesel) to ensure you can have the industrial heating power/heat output to suit your fuel type.

Please go through the following points if you want to get the most out of your industrial heater requirements-

The following are the most common types of heaters on the market based on fuel types

Industrial Gas Heaters – Natural and Propane(LPG) Warm Air Heaters

Gas heaters and propane heaters burn natural gas, propane, liquefied natural gas (LNG) or other gaseous fuels to generate heat. The first gas heaters were similar to the Bunsen burner in that both they used a flame to heat air locally. This heated air was spread by convection to warm an entire area. Later, the burner’s flame was used to heat a structure made of asbestos, a strong and incombustible fibre. Although asbestos structures have been replaced by fire clay and other refractory materials, modern gas heaters still operate according to this principle. Gas heaters and propane heaters often use similar designs.

Industrial Heaters

Performance Specifications

Specifications for natural gas heaters and propane (LPG) heaters include maximum temperature, heating capacity and maximum air flow. There are two parameters for maximum temperature, maximum air temperature and maximum operating temperature.

The maximum operating temperature for gas heaters is the highest temperature that the heater’s coating or protective cover may reach.

The maximum air temperature, as its words suggest, is the maximum temperature of the air exiting from the heater.

Heating capacity is the wattage that gas heaters and propane (LPG) heaters can deliver.

Fan Options

You can have either an axial fan for free blowing applications or a centrifugal fan for use of the industrial heater in a ducted warm air heating system

Industrial Heaters – Applications

The variety of different applications for gas and propane heaters include annealing and heat treating, drying, curing and tempering, melting, and the heating of gases and vapours. Gas heaters and propane heaters are also used to heat clean water, high purity waters and process waters, lightweight oils and degreasing solutions; heavy and medium weight oils, caustic solutions and mild and severe corrosive solutions.

Industrial Heaters – Features

There are many optional features for gas heaters. Some products are indirect-fired, corrosion resistant, finned, and explosion-proof or can be controlled by a microprocessor. Gas heaters can also be fitted with an internal temperature detector, a grounding wire, and multiple / independent timing controls.

Other additional features may also include overheat protection, adjustable thermostat control; portability

 Oil Industrial Heater

Oil, normally red diesel is burnt to generate heat output, the are a good heating solution for large space, when mains gas is not available. They consist of metal columns with cavities and a heating element. Inside these cavities, oil or kerosene flows freely around a heating element. This element, which is located at the bottom of the heater, transfers heat through the fluid in a process called convection. The oil or kerosene acts as a heat buffer or reservoir and provides both a relatively high specific-heat capacity and a high boiling point. Because of its high specific-heat capacity, the oil or kerosene accumulates a large amount of thermal energy in a small volume. This high boiling point allows the fuel source to remain in the liquid phase, and means that oil heaters and kerosene heaters do not have to be high-pressure vessels.

Heaters -Types

There are many different types of oil and kerosene heaters. The variety include air, band, coil, and cable heaters; drum, duct, and enclosure heaters; and flexible, forced-air, immersion, and induction heaters. Cartridge, cast-in, ceramic fibre, and circulation heaters; Heat torches are forced-process air heaters that may burn oil or kerosene. Oil and kerosene heaters also include over-the-side, radiant flat panel, infrared (IR) and radiant reflective process heaters. . Other types of oil and kerosene heaters include room or space heaters.

Industrial Heaters


Oil and kerosene heaters transfer heat to a room at a slower rate and over a longer period of time. Using the liquid petroleum as a heat reservoir, they transfer heat via conduction and radiation. Typically, the columns of oil and kerosene heaters are made of metal and constructed as thin fins.


Specifications for the heating element include length or height, depth or thickness and width or diameter, some oil and kerosene heaters use single-phase or three-phase power. Others require AC voltage. Typically, an industrial heater use AC voltage instead of DC voltage.


There are a variety of different applications for an oil industrial heater, but the largest requirement is for space heating

Oil and kerosene heaters are also used to heat process and high-purity waters, lightweight oils & degreasing solutions, heavy &  medium weight oils, mild & severe corrosive solutions, caustic solutions, and liquid paraffin. Depending on the application, insulation options are also important to consider when selecting an oil or kerosene heater.

Industrial Electric Heaters

An electric fan heater generates heat by passing an electric current through a high-resistance material know as a heating element. When an electric current passes through it, it glows red hot and converts electrical energy into heat. An electric fan heater can be ideal for providing supplementary heating or emergency heating applications.

Electric fan heaters are available with various heating power outputs, and the best ones have adjustable thermostatic control, and both high and low heat settings.

They can provide a robust and economical great heater solution to deliver warm air rapidly in any commercial or industrial building

Electric fan heaters radiate heat with the use of a tubular element, flexible heater element or other type of heating element. A heating element is usually made up of a coil, ribbon (corrugated or straight), or strip of wire that gives off heat similar to a lamp filament when used in a infrared heating unit.


Heating elements are mostly either iron-based or nickel-based.  Nickel-based heating elements are typically made of nichrome, an alloy that consists of about 80% nickel and 20% chromium. Nichrome is a popular and common material for heating elements because of its high melting point of 2,550°F (1,400°C)

It also will not oxidize at high temperatures and does not expand much when it heats up. It also retains a consistent resistance of about 10% between ambient temperature and maximum operating temperature.

Industrial Heaters


Some key features of our industrial electric heaters are portability, precision temperature monitoring & control and temperature protection.

Industrial Electric Fan Heaters – Applications

Electric heaters are commonly used throughout industrial and consumer products to heat all types of liquids, gases, vapours, and solids. In consumer products, electric heaters are commonly used for heating water, air and even flooring. Industrial applications can utilize much higher wattages and industrial electrical heaters can be used for applications such as heat treating, annealing, melting, and the heating of all types of process fluids.
