by Brianna Crandall — August 14, 2017 — Dri-Eaz, a unit of Legend Brands, has just introduced a quiet but powerful axial fan suitable for a variety of uses in construction, restoration, ventilation and more. With adjustable high-volume airflow and a unique noise-reduction fan blade design, the new Stealth AV3000 axial air-mover delivers powerful ventilation and drying for carpets, walls and structural materials.
The Dri-Eaz’s new Stealth video demonstrates its versatility on the job, including such applications as:
- Construction: Drying structural wood, painting or texture applications during construction
- Water damage restoration: Drying out carpets and walls to prevent mold
- Ventilation: Ventilating dust or fumes during tear-outs or when using strong-smelling coatings or adhesives
- Events: Keeping air fresh and cool in party tents or during other events
- Safety: Placing in entryways to reduce trip and fall hazards after cleaning or during inclement weather
According to Jim Hassi, Legend Brands director of Strategic Accounts:
Many imported units don’t last or can create safety risks. The Stealth brings proven Dri-Eaz engineering and build quality to an extremely versatile axial.
Manufactured in Legend Brands’ plant in Burlington, Washington, the Stealth was built for the toughest conditions, and its rotomolded housing carries a limited lifetime warranty.
Users can direct air anywhere with the unit’s integrated powder-coated steel stand and easy-adjust angle with 320 degrees of rotation. Light and easy to carry, the Stealth stacks securely for transport on a standard hand truck.
The Stealth’s special fan blades with tooth-like structures are engineered to enhance airflow while reducing the noise level significantly, especially at higher frequencies. Its variable speed control adjusts fan speed for high-intensity airflow or low-noise operation in occupied spaces.
The Stealth’s low amp draw — only 2.7 amps — and convenience outlet allow operators to daisy-chain up to four units on a single 15-amp circuit. With 2600 CFM tested output per unit, users can achieve up to 7800 CFM on a single 15-amp circuit. Hassi noted:
This gives operators the air movement they need to work efficiently — whether that’s ventilating a large area or drying carpet or structural materials.
Legend Brands engineers also designed the Stealth is to be easy to clean, store and maintain. The Stealth can be disassembled for cleaning in five minutes or less. Technicians remove four screws and lift off the housing for complete access to the motor and fan assembly for vacuuming or a quick wipe-down. The unit stacks securely up to five high to save space in vehicles and storage areas.
