Priority Rental, a Herc Rentals Business recently received a call from a cold food storage warehouse near Chicago in Midway, IL that unexpectedly had a fire sprinkler head burst above their ceilings. Unluckily for them, the burst happened directly over their large coolers, making a wet mess.
We went out to the site to see what was needed to get the situation under control. The warehouse helped take moisture readings while we took measurements. We came to an agreement on the units needed and got them out to the site the following morning.
Using Desiccant Dehumidifiers for Water Restoration
The job consisted of a 320kw generator with a fuel cell for power distribution and three 7,500 cfm desiccant dehumidifiers to remove the moisture. They also needed a 20kw generator to power spider boxes for the customers’ fans. Two of the desiccants were in each of the two coolers, while the third ran up above the ceilings and along the structure with lay flat ducting.
Check out some pictures of the setup:
The job was estimated to take a full week, but our solution got it done in 4 days!
