Meaco 38Lm Platinum Range Building Dryer

What you want from a building dryer is a dehumidifier that extracts a lot of moisture from the air, using as little electricity as possible and will give you many years of reliable service. That is exactly what the Meaco 38Lm was engineered to do and that is exactly what it does.

Designed and built in Europe the 38Lm is our first building dryer to meet the requirements for inclusion into the Meaco Platinum Range of dehumidifiers. This means that it meets our requirements in terms of energy efficiency and superior build quality.  This is why it comes with a two year parts and labour warranty to reflect our confidence in it's build, as well as the option to extend warranty to five years.

The Meaco 38Lm is coated in epoxy paint onto a steel housing to restrict scratches. It uses 250mm diameter polyurethane wheels with extra-large handles to help manoeuvre it up and down stairs and curbs.  An hour counter keeps track of usage.

Internally it uses the highest possible grade components and welds to ensure reliability in all conditions and to provide maximum extraction rates using the smallest amount of energy possible at all temperatures and relative humidities. Hot gas defrost is installed as standard to improve performance below 16°C and when not in use the 38Lm can be stacked three high to save on space.  It comes with a huge 7.8 litre ABS tank with the option of a remote humidistat and a 4m gain high grade steel pump.
