Air-Dryr protects valuables from rust, mold & mildew

Moisture is insidious. Even trace amounts can cause rust, mold and mildew to set in. The result can be anything from a blemish to the complete loss of an item. Air-Dryr from Davis Instruments is an effective and inexpensive way to stave off damaging humidity.

Air-Dryr is engineered to operate 24/7. Plugged into a 110/120V outlet and placed as low as possible, it warms the damp air to above the dew point. As the dry air is released through the top vents, cool, dank air is drawn into the device and processed. For safety, a thermal cutoff turns off the device in the event that something falls on top of it and blocks the air flow.

Without any moving parts, Air-Dryr is completely silent. Its durable polycarbonate housing is built to withstand years of use. UL Listed, it's completely safe to handle when plugged in.

Two sizes are offered. Air-Dryr 500 has a 70 watt heating element and handles up to 500 cu. ft., yet draws only 0.6 amps. It measures 36cm L x 13cm W x 11cm H.

With a 130 watt heating element, Air-Dryr 1000 takes care of up to 1,000 cu. ft. of space. Drawing only 1.1 amps, it is 34cm dia. x 11 cm H.
