Compact Design, Big Performance
The Phoenix R175 combines our Proven Performance into a compact, state of the art, roto-mold design. The R175 reflects all the ingenuity and engineering expertise that is expected in Phoenix name-brand equipment.
Efficient design results in the R175 removing 30% more water (92 pints at AHAM) than competitive LGR units of similar size, while drawing only 6.3 amps of power. The Phoenix reputation for performance is continued in the R175's excellent grain depression and operating range.
The new solid state control panel features a lighted hour meter, pump purge control and a defrost light. The hour meter can be activated for ten seconds when the unit is unplugged to log the status of the unit in the warehouse or on the truck. The sturdy telescoping handle provides sure control and retracts for storage. The recessed 12-inch wheels, compact design and balanced weight distribution make the R175 the most maneuverable dehumidifier on the market.
The rugged roto-mold housing resists dents and dings and the granite pigments hides scuffs and scratches. The body also features chambered corners to prevent damage to walls and woodwork while maneuvering on the job-site. Phoenix attention to detail and fore-thought are evident in the R175's ability to stack one upon another, or securely be "layered" with plywood. An area to apply a company identification label is located below the R175 emblem. Notched surfaces for tie-down straps and multiple lift points were also included.
Like every Phoenix, the R175 features effective air filtration with a pleated media MERV-7 filter standard (optional MERV-11 is available). Multiple ducting options are available with 12-inch intake duct tabs on the lid and a wire duct collar for 10-inch lay-flat duct.
The outlet grill is designed to be capable of accepting a variety of thermo-hygrometer probes (e.g. Vaisala, Humiport, etc.) for taking accurate psychrometric readings. The 20-foot power cord and 33-foot condensate hose store conveniently inside the hinged stainless steel lid.
The R175 marks Phoenix Restoration Equipment's entry into the manufacturing of roto-mold LGR dehumidifiers proving our commitment to technology, performance and durability.
