If your records have been damaged due to fire, water damage or mold you will need to act quickly to save the ones you need. While you know that you are required by law to keep certain records you may not care if they come out perfectly or you may need to partially dry wet documents so that they can be shredded. While vacuum freeze drying is the best method for drying documents it is also one of the most expensive methods. We have custom made drying shelves and desiccant drying chambers that work in conjunction with large desiccant dehumidifiers to dry documents. The shelves themselves channel the high pressure dessert dry air onto the papers which are manually separated and flipped. When properly done the documents come out in fairly good condition. Since shredders cannot handle a continuous stream of wet documents without clogging or being damaged the wet papers need to be dried to a certain level so that the shredders can handle the documents. This is a perfect application for the desiccant document drying system as it cheaper than the vacuum freeze drying method.

Unlike traditional equipment the Titan is a complete all in one unit. It can be up and running within minutes of arriving on site and does not require a separate generator or fuel tank to operate it. There is no need to wait for nor pay for an electrician to hook the desiccant up to the generator. There is no need to place the fuel tank and or generator into secondary fuel containment tubs or berms as the Titan has built in secondary containment. Not only are the Titan HE Desiccants self-powered they also provide extra electricity with which to power enough air movers or other equipment to complete the dry down. If you couple these features with the additional benefits of its using under ¼ of the fuel that standard generators consume and that the Titan is less than 65 decibels the units are simply unbeatable. They will save thousands in operating costs while still having excellent performance.
