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 the 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, inboard wheels, increased airflow with higher static pressure and an improved skid plate design.
As always, Phoenix dehumidifiers feature significant air filtration. The standard 65% MERV-11 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 for ducting both the intake air and the filtered, dehumidified exhaust air.
The Phoenix 270HTx is designed to maintain water removal capacity up through 125°F. In order to accomplish this, Phoenix engineers created a highly effective method of bypassing ambient air over the condenser when ambient temperatures are above 80°F.
Above 80ºF – When used in high temperature conditions (above 80ºF), the refrigerant pressure inside the condenser rises. The automatic bypass door slowly opens between 80F and 90F to direct additional airflow over the condenser, and direct less airflow across the evaporator. Redirecting the airflow lowers the refrigerant pressure in the condenser while also slowing down the air across the evaporator. Lower airflow across the evaporator allows the air to reach its dew point.
Between 50ºF and 80ºF – When used in normal operating temperature ranges (50ºF to 80ºF), the automatic bypass door remains closed. This allows increased airflow across the evaporator and increases performance by increasing the amount of air that is dehumidified.
Below 50ºF – When the Phoenix 270HTx is used in very cool operating temperatures (below 50ºF), frost will form on the evaporator coil as it dehumidifies. When enough frost forms the solid state controls will initiate a defrost cycle. The defrost cycle periodically turns off the compressor while allowing the blower to run. The automatic bypass door will remain closed in this operating range. Increased airflow and static pressure will help defrost the evaporator more quickly and efficiently.
