Yes!

Not Sure!

How tes Works?
  • tes uses directed air flow and contained heat to energize water molecules.
  • Directed air flow and contained heat are keys to the Reets Evaporation Method.
  • Heat the wet materials – not the air.
  • tes dries structures faster!

High Speed Structural Drying System

basic principles of drying
Basic Principles of Drying
  • According to the IICRC there are four basic principles or steps to be followed when drying a building.
  • Extraction
  • Evaporation
  • Dehumidification
  • Temperature control
extraction1
Extraction

We have great extraction tools.

Up to 97% of the water can be extracted from carpet and pad!*

*SCRT W.E.T. Study

extraction vs evaporation
Extraction vs. Evaporation
  • Extraction is 1200 times faster than evaporation.
  • Your efficiency just decreased by 99.91%.

Drying progress is now measured in gallons, not grains.

evaporation liquid changing to vapor
Evaporation(Liquid changing to vapor)

Evaporation is the bottleneck of drying!

How can we speed up evaporation?

understanding evaporation what are the phases of water
UNDERSTANDING EVAPORATIONWhat are the phases of water?

Solid Phase

As a solid, ice, water molecules are locked into a hexagonal arrangement.

slide24
As a liquid the molecules are moving faster and can break free from the crystal structure but not from each other

What are the phases of water?

Liquid Phase

as a vapor the molecules are moving fast enough or are hot enough to move freely
As a vapor the molecules are moving fast enough, or are hot enough, to move freely.

What are the phases of water?

Vapor Phase

slide26

To change from liquid to a vapor the water molecules must gain sufficient energy in the form of heat to break free from each other.

  • The higher the temperature of the liquid water, the more energetic the molecules will be. The more energetic the molecules the more readily they break free and leave the wet surface (evaporate).

The key is the temperature of the water molecules!

slide27

Temperature

To increase the evaporation rate we need to increase the temperature of the water not the air!

understanding vapor pressure
Understanding Vapor Pressure
  • Molecules moving in the air or leaving a wet surface create a pressure on everything they touch.
  • This pressure is called VAPOR PRESSURE.
  • Faster moving (hotter) molecules produce greater pressure.
  • Molecules packed closely together (such as on the surface of a liquid) produce greater pressure than molecules that are widely spread out (vapor).
understanding vapor pressure1
Understanding Vapor Pressure
  • The greater the pressure difference between the surface and the air the faster the water on the surface wants to move to the lower pressure in the air.
  • Heating the surface without heating the air makes the greatest pressure difference!

The difference is evaporation potential!

formula for evaporation potential
Formula for Evaporation Potential

VS -VA=E

E=Evaporation Potential

VS=Vapor Pressure of the Wet Surface

VA=Vapor Pressure of the Air above the Wet Surface

The higher “E” the faster the evaporation rate!

example using fans dehu
Example Using Fans & Dehu

VS-VA=E

Surface 72O/100% Air is 76OF/90%

2.68-2.76= -.08

Evaporation potential= -.08

Surface 70O/100% Air is 78O/60%

2.50-1.96=0.54

Evaporation potential= 0.54

Initial Conditions

Conditions after using fans and dehumidifier for 6 hours

example using tes
Example Using Tes

VS-VA=E

Evaporation potential remains = -.08

Surface 120O/100% Air is 95O/30%

11.67-1.69=9.98

Evaporation potential = 9.98

Same

Initial Conditions

as previous example

Conditions after

Tes has been operating 6 hours

air flow
Air Flow

What role does air flow do in the evaporation process?

  • Moves the very wet air near the surface (the boundary layer) away.
  • Speeds the transfer of heat energy. Like using a blow dryer or a convection oven.
  • Moving air reduces pressures and ‘lifts’ water molecules into the air. Lift from moving air is how an airplane flies.
humidity
Humidity

What role does lower humidity play in the evaporation process?

  • Lower humidity means there is less water vapor in the air. With fewer molecules of water in the air, vapor pressure will be lower.
  • A greater difference in vapor pressure between the surface and the air will speed up evaporation.
humidity1
Humidity

To maintain the greatest evaporation potential, we must either exhaust hot humid air to the outside (replacing it with drier outside air) or dry the air with dehumidifiers.

recap reets evaporation method
RECAP:Reets Evaporation Method
  • Extraction (Same)
  • Energy applied directly to the water (Temperature)
  • Airflow applied directly to the water (Evaporation)
  • Reduction of vapor saturation levels (humidity) by dehumidification or evacuation (Dehumidification)

slide59

YES!

  • Less disruption of their lives/business – continuation
  • Less stress, odors, inconvenience
  • Less out of home times
  • Less losses, repairs and replacements
  • Fewer contractors (strangers) in their home
  • Quiet!
  • Almost like it never happened – sooner!

Does the Home/Business Owner want One-Day Drying?

slide60

ABSOLUTELY YES!

  • “The sooner the file is closed – the happier the customer and the greater the savings”
  • Heated drying prevents or retards bacteria and mold growth.
  • Less demolition and repair to walls, hardwoods, subfloor, floors & ceilings.
  • Less pad/cushion replacement, less carpet reinstall.
  • Less amperage/electricity (30-35 amp total), one-day - generators are not usually required
  • Big One – ALE’s (Additional Living Expenses) One day vs. 3 to 5 days.
  • “The longer it’s wet and stinky, the more they replace”.

Does the Insurance Company want One-Day Drying?

slide61

Why You Should Request tes on Every Job

  • Accelerated drying coupled with heat significantly reduces risk from bacteria and mold.

factors essential for growth of fungi
Factors Essential for Growth of Fungi
  • There are certain essentials  necessary for molds to grow.
  • 1. Suitable temperature.
  • 2. Availability of water.
  • 3. Organic substrate for energy.
  • 4. Presence of oxygen for respiration.
  • Mold growth will slow down above and below their temperature range and eventually growth will cease for most fungi at or above 95F.

? – Not Sure!

MAYBE NO

- Can I afford it?

- How do I charge for it?

- Will Insurance Companies pay for it?

- What do I do with all my current equipment; It makes me a lot of money?!

Does the Restoration Contractor want One-Day Drying?

slide65

MAYBE YES

  • First in Market Place – Coke, Pepsi, RC Cola?
  • Marketing advantage 1- Retain who you’ve got!
  • 2- Get new business
  • Less equipment handling, maintaining, and tracking!
  • Less amperage (generators - $20 per/day – not great)
  • Current equipment is still utilized to compliment and fill the gaps of a tes
  • Much quieter!
  • More $ per day – More days per week/month (explained later)
  • Possible Secondary Uses
  • - Ground thaw
  • - Space heating
  • - Pest control? No promises!
