TES High-Speed Structural Drying System Returns to Las Vegas for the 2006 Connections Convention/Exhibition

Las Vegas, NV, October 04, 2006 --(PR.com)-- Cleaning and restoration professionals get another look at TES (Thermal Energy System) at Connections 2006.  A year after its initial release and with about 70 units in operation, TES is proving itself to be able to dry floods about twice as fast as traditional methods.  Insurance companies love it for the quick drying time, reduced damage to the structure, and quicker resolution of insurance claims.

“Connections” is the cleaning and restoration industry’s largest exhibition with over 2400 professionals attending this year. It was at the Connections Convention last year that TES (Thermal Energy System) was unveiled to the Water Restoration Industry.

TES is a heat based drying system that has dramatically reduced the drying times for flooded homes and businesses. The science behind TES is to heat up the wet structure and materials, not just the air. The evaporation of moisture in saturated floors, walls, ceilings and other materials from a flood has always been the slow process of drying; usually taking several days to complete. Until now the water loss professionals have used fans, dehumidifiers and warmer air temperatures to accelerate the evaporation. While this has worked with time, it is now being understood that a key missing component to faster evaporation/drying was the lack of energy/heat being applied to the wet structure and materials. The TES drying system includes special designed TEX (Thermal Exchangers) units to better transfer energy/heat into the wet goods. As the temperature of the absorbed water builds in these materials, the more vapor they release into the air. The final step of the process is to expel the vapor laden air to the outside with a thermal controlled exhaust fan; dehumidifiers and air handling systems can compliment this process.

What does all this mean? It means that the new technology of TES can dry quicker! How much quicker? It is difficult to quantify exactly, since every flood, water loss is different, but as general rule it will dry in ½ the time or less than conventional methods. What has been taking 3 to 4 days to dry, TES will dry in 1 or 2 days. Although the daily rental fees for TES are more, the fact that it dries faster means the equipment rental for the total job is virtually the same. However, Insurance companies can expect big savings by drying faster in the following areas; less demolition to walls, baseboards and ceilings; more hardwood floors saved; less additional living expenses; heat based drying retards mold and bacteria growth, and reduces odors; uses less electricity; is quiet; and helps close insurance claims quicker.

Last year when TES was introduced, it was received with guarded optimism. Everyone wants faster drying but “will it really work” was the sentiment. After one year and approximately 70 systems in operation all around the country the proof is in. Hundreds of losses have now been dried faster with the Thermal Energy System. Whether it’s been a three-four room home flood or a 6000 square foot reception center, TES is drying them in record time. This year at the convention the sentiment by water loss professionals was, “I really need to understand this now and how it can make my company better.” Several orders were placed at the convention and several more will be purchased by water restorations companies over the next few months. Drying water losses is getting a whole lot faster!
