Being flexible in the sanitary, heating and ventilation engineering with mobile devices

Temporary solutions for the restoration of heating and cooling systems

Many sanitary, heating and ventilation engineers use the mobile devices from the Trotec Group. Here sanitary, heating and ventilation engineers find everything they regularly need for their daily business to bridge the downtimes of stationary installations – all from a single source: mobile heating devices and central heating units, mobile air handling units or cooling systems right down to climate measuring devices for monitoring the mobile climate solution.

Ever since the energy turnaround, energetic redevelopments of both residential buildings and commercial property are experiencing a boom. People everywhere are busy insulating and renovating. Most energy saving potential is to be found in the heating and hot water generation: Many outdated heating systems are currently being exchanged for environmentally sound systems and technologies such as solar panels, heat pumps or pellet heating systems. The trend towards more efficient and sustainable building equipment (HVAC) affords sanitary, heating and ventilation engineers full order books.

Mobile heating appliances for all room sizes – ranging from the fan heater to the central heating unit

When replacing a heating system, the restoration work often brings along several days of heating failure. Depending on if and how the building is used, mobile heating devices may be required. In the product segment "heating" sanitary, heating and ventilation engineers find mobile heaters of different performance classes: mobile electric heating units of the TEH series and small fan heaters of the TDS series for living and office spaces. Should more capacity be required, the mobile heating units of the TEH series thoroughly heat up large offices or storage facilities. If the heating in production halls or warehouses fails, mobile central oil heating units of the ID series ensure happy faces and warm hands.

Mobile air handling units when the stationary cooling system fails

The energy-oriented modernisation of building equipment not only means a new heating system. If you are using recent technology, cooling systems in restaurants and catering businesses, computer centres and storage facilities also consume less power. Which means that central refrigerating plants are used with increasing frequency to supply several cooling systems in an energy-saving way. If the cooling system fails during renovation and reconstruction measures, mobile air handling units of the PortaTemp series do a good job. They are designed for commercial use.

Climate measuring devices monitor the mobile solution

For heating or cooling: In order for the mobile solution to work as well as needed, climate measuring devices and data loggers from the product segment of measuring technology complete the temporary equipment pool. The professional measuring device thermohygrometer T210 for instance captures the temperature and humidity in the temperature range between -20 and +50 °C. Entirely sufficient for living or office spaces and coldstores.

In case of water damage: mobile dehumidifiers for drying

One of the core competencies of sanitary, heating and ventilation engineers is the restoration of water damage or the elimination of the cause. Provided, these are to be found in the pipes and HVAC hardware. For the first drying measures mobile dehumidifiers or construction dryers and infrared heating panels are used. They do a good job until the painter or renovation expert takes over the further water damage restoration.

Interested in purchasing mobile devices? Our experts help you to select the right equipment

When restoration work represents a large portion of the sanitary, heating and ventilation engineer's orders, it is advisable to establish one's own small equipment pool of mobile heaters, construction dryers and air handling units. Our consultants will gladly assist sanitary, heating and ventilation engineers in the capacity calculation for the most common applications.

Further application examples for mobile devices

  • Environmental simulation climate chamber

    In climatic chambers and wind tunnels three factors need to be simulated at the best possible rate: air temperature, wind strength and humidity. For the latter, the automotive industry needs dehumidifiers, which also perform well at dew points below 0°C, as well as high-performance desiccant dehumidifiers.

  • Dehumidifying & air cleaning for coating

    There are three parameters to be controlled when coating car components: room temperature, humidity and the dust content in the air. In addition to dehumidifiers and heating devices we also provide sustainable air cleaners with special volumetric flow regulation for this production stage in the automotive industry.

  • Dehumidification in tents

    When preparing a tent or another type of temporary accommodation, good room conditions are essential. This applies particularly to makeshift dwellings accommodating large numbers of people. This can be tent cities or container villages for asylum seekers, tent camps for youth groups, tents used as a place to sleep at large events, and also containers serving as a temporary home for seasonal...

  • Drying hygroscopic bulk material

    Varying and too high humidity values can ruin the pourability of powders and granules – and thus entail high consequential costs. In order for hygroscopic bulk material not to go lumpy nor to block hauling paths, the entire air in the chemical and pharmaceutical production must be pre-dried. Using adsorption dryers of the TTR series that's no problem.

  • Drying after silo cleaning

    After the cleaning of storage containers and silos you have to count on them to be fully dried for new bulk material to be protected against moisture from the beginning. And since drying can be effected in a quick and economical manner, we advise decision makers from the chemical and pharmaceutical industry to consider our high-performance dryers of the TTR series.

  • Drying pellets

    Who turns his back on proper air conditioning for production and storage facilities risks serious damage to the product. This is also true for the manufacturing of pellets. The biofuel is particularly susceptible to excessive humidity values. For the untreated raw wood withdraws the humidity from the air and absorbs it. With devastating consequences for both the customer and the manufacturer:...

  • Dehumidification in hotels

    A suitable room climate is a prerequisite for the well-being of hotel guests. If the air in the room is too warm or humid, it appears to be stale and muggy. Often damages appear at the building structure and interior within a short period of time. Wallpaper will be dotted with mould stains, curtains and clothes as well as linen become damp and musty and – if it comes to the worst – mildew runs...

  • Dehumidification in indoor ice-skating rinks

    Due to the difference in temperature between air and the icy surface, condensation inevitably forms in every ice rink – especially when humid air keeps flowing in from outside through the refrigeration system. The solution against dripping water on the ice and against damage to property constitutes a dehumidifier. It prevents condensation in the offing.

  • Drying compressed air

    The most frequent causes for a production stop are too much water vapour in the machines and installations, and corrosion inside the pipelines. Therefore, too humid compressed air should be avoided by all means. An effective option is the use of high-performance dehumidifiers. The answer to the question of how dry the compressed air has to be in order to guarantee optimum production conditions and...
