Fantech DEDPV-705 Ventilator

September 14, 2020

Fantech has introduced the DEDPV-705, a dryer exhaust duct power ventilator designed to provide a safe laundry exhaust solution, reduce drying time and save energy.

Fires caused by lint ignition are an invisible hazard many homeowners don’t realize may be lurking in their homes. In fact, lint ignition was the leading cause of the approximately 16,000 annual dryer fires in the U.S. each year, according to the National Fire Protection Association.

The UL-listed DEDPV-705 Dryer Exhaust Duct Power Ventilator provides that protection along with even greater flexibility than previous duct boosting solutions. DEDPV-705 maintains an exhaust velocity ideal for keeping lint entrained in the flow of air during its journey to the outside, thereby minimizing the risk of fire due to lint buildup. The DEDPV-705 also continues to operate for a short period of time after the dryer stops, which cools the clothes and lessens the risk of spontaneous combustion, and it removes humid air from the dryer and ducting.

Fantech‘s DEDPV-705 has a visual panel that indicates proper operation but also alerts the homeowner of potential problems such as a locked rotor or duct blockage. This advanced warning allows the user to take action to clean the dryer exhaust duct or seek service.
