The Phoenix 270HTx is one of the most effective and versatile drying devices available. The Phoenix 270HTx features more water removal (161 pints per day@AHAM) and higher grain depression than other refrigerant dehumidifiers, while drawing only 8.9 amps of electricity.

The 270HTx features Phoenix’s patented bypass design, which is now enhanced to compensate for temperature automatically. By sensing and adjusting to temperature changes in the drying chamber, the 270HTx maximizes water removal over an extended operating range without the need for manual adjustments.

At higher temperatures, where typical LGRs lose effectiveness, the Phoenix 270HTx automatically adjusts to continue removing moisture. This offers several advantages to the restorer, including faster evaporation rates, quicker drying, and elimination of he need to remove or modify equipment for temperature control.

The downward-focused exhaust airflow directs dehumidified low-grain air toward the floor, while a raised base improves drying directly under the dehumidifier. The Phoenix 270HTx also features a recessed condensate outlet, onboard wheels, increased airflow with higher static pressure and an improved skid plate design.

As always, Phoenix dehumidifiers feature significant air filtration. The standard 65% ERV-1 filter removes over 90% of seven-micron particles (the size of a human red blood cell). This filtration improves the air quality in the areas being dried and assures the continued optimal performance of the refrigeration system.

The multiple ducting options on the Phoenix 270HTx allow or ducting both the intake air and the filtered, dehumidified exhaust air.
