WORK METHODS

Understand the 6 simple steps that can dry your walls. 

1

Analysis

Wet outer, inner and basement walls become dry again.

One of our principles reads: no experiments! To make sure that the use of the Drymat System will successfully dehumidify your house too, we always conduct a thorough analysis.

The electro-physical method of dehumidification is based on the electro-phoresic effect – please, take a look at our video about it. This makes the Drymat System the ideal method for sustainable removal of rising capillary moisture. As part of our analysis under the Wenner measurement technique, we make sure that there exists no pressurized water and no water vain abutting. Another rare factor able to make the Drymat System ineffective is a pH value of 4 or less, which is caused by an extreme organic pollution, for example by fertilization of the surrounding fields.

Humidity 
Measurement

Measurement of humidity and temperature in buildings

In general, we use the CM or Darr method as the basic measurement.
The subsequent indication to register is the following:

A solution with a profile

A humidity profile probe provides a completely new way of measuring humidity and temperature in structures, especially in the walls and flooring.

It is distinguished by the fact that the PS10-6 profile probe has a total of six, and the probe PS10-3 exactly 3 measuring points.

Installation

A regular power connection on site via a socket – that's all we need

Mounting is possible both outdoor and indoor.

The control unit automatically sets up the power consumption and reduces voltage depending on the humidity. In our humidity analysis, we have exactly determined how much moisture is present and what is the disturbance potential. This determines which voltage has to be used to eliminate the rising capillary moisture. In any case, it is limited to the low voltage range comparable to that of a doorbell power supply. Electromagnetic pollution is therefore not an issue.

For precise placement of anode conductors in the wall, we measure the water and salt levels. In individual cases, a very thin anode of precious metal can be almost invisibly introduced into a tile joint with the aid of special machines.

Drying
Phase

From now on everything goes as if by itself – even after a flood.

Drymat does not only dehumidify the walls, but also desalinates them.

Drying begins on the day of the installation of your Drymat System – depending on specific conditions and wall thickness, the electro-physical wall dehumidification lasts about 2 years. Relatively quickly, of course, the surfaces become dry first, and the core of the walls at the end of the process.

After one year, we conduct a first control measurement, on the basis of which we evaluate the progress of drying. Naturally, the measurements will be continuously logged.

Drymat Wall Dehumidification – A Solution with a Long-Term Outlook

Thanks to the Drymat®System, you need neither measuring instruments nor specialist knowledge for the most convincing success control: just feel how much the atmosphere in the room has improved.

Nevertheless, we do not rely on the subjective perception, but monitor objective indicators of the dehumidification progress – during and after the drying process. Therefore, we can tell you in exact percentage terms how much moisture has been lastingly removed from the structure. You can imagine what quantities are involved if you know that wet masonry may contain up to 450 litres of water per cubic metre.

Anode
System

Wet outer, inner and basement walls become dry again.

The latest version of Standard 3355 of 03/2017, which applies to our dehumidification procedure, prescribes the use of anodes that meet the requirements regarding cathodic corrosion protection.

The highest quality with respect to the longevity of the anodes is required in bridge construction. Here, only titanium with an appropriate noble-metal activation coating is used.

We therefore use titanium with an iridium or platinum activation coating for anodes, cathodes, all screw connections as well as cables.

According to the literature from Lida, the life expectancy of such an anode at a current density of 110 mA/m² is greater than 100 years. According to Standard 3355, the current density in our application is limited to 5–8 mA/m², which makes the service life is correspondingly high.
