How they work

Hazmat Suit Dryers
Efficient drying is achieved by introducing a high volume of slightly warmed air deep into the garments extremities (arms and legs). As this slightly warmed air is forced out of the garment, it absorbs, and draws moisture from the material as it exits from the garment.

Note, Introduced heat, dries the air, not the garment as NFPA clearly states a non abrasive, low temp ( 105 degree max ) drying process. The dryer the air, the more moisture it will pull from the garment.

The 4 suit dryer ( MB-1500FDD-NH ) has no heat elements, instead, doubles the airflow to 980cfm, ideal for more temperate, lower humidity regions, but still performs exceptionally well in cooler environments.

In the Field

"It's a great product. Puslinch Fire and Rescue Services purchased a Megablast drying system a few years ago. It was a very cost effective option for a reliable forced air drying system. It’s convenient and dries our gear quickly. I have recommended this unit to other departments.”
