Physics informs us that for water molecules to rise through walls by capillarity, all their negative poles must be oriented upwards or in the direction of the capillary.
The principle of electro-physical drying consists of sending electromagnetic waves. These waves disperse the water molecules that are rising through the walls, repelling them; gravity then forces the water back down below the building's foundations.
Naturally, the more effectively these electromagnetic waves are transmitted within the walls and floors, the more efficient the drying system will be.
Optimizing the waves transmission
Using a frequency spectrometer, we analyzed wave transmission through the walls, which led us to select the transmission that exhibited the highest efficiency—specifically, sound frequencies.
The transmission of sound frequencies through walls and damp floors is 12 times more efficient than transmission through the air.
Furthermore, we discovered that these waves are better transmitted through thick walls than through thin partitions. This finding guides us to select the installation location for the equipment within a damp, sturdy wall positioned near the ground.
Typically it should be positioned 20 to 50cm from the floor to prevent damage during sweeping or vacuuming the area.
Choosing the right equipment
To select the appropriate equipment, it is essential to determine the length and width of the building's ground floor or basement.
For example, for a lower level with a length of 12m and a width of 8m, reference would be made to 12x8 = 96m2 of surface.
Looking at the table of technical characteristics of the equipment, we deduce that the appropriate equipment is the HS-221a that covers up to 100m2.
Right equipment for an elongated ground floor
If it were the case of an elongated lower level of 19m long and 5m wide, in that case you need a HS-221a covering 100m2.
In the majority of cases, it is advisable to mount the equipment on a load-bearing wall, even if it is not centered within the level. This approach is preferable due to the thickness of the wall, which facilitates optimal transmission through walls and floors. This way, the system effectively covers all walls on that level, even if they are situated in separate rooms.
Our system doesn't rely solely on air transmission; instead, it utilizes the interior of walls and floors to reach areas with humidity more effectively, thus achieving the most efficient drying.
It is crucial that the system is securely affixed to the load-bearing wall, without any intervening layers of materials like ceramics, marble, partitions, polystyrene, plastic, wood, and so on. This ensures unobstructed transmission to the interior of the wall.
Considering these installation precautions, it's feasible to completely dry an entire ground floor in under 4 months when the walls consist of brick or concrete blocks. However, in the case of walls being exceptionally old and thick (70cm), constructed from materials such as stones, sand, earth, and some cement, the drying process typically takes less than 9 months, as demonstrated in older residences..
