DRYCO helps painters and coaters stay on schedule, meet specifications and assure a quality finished product. Using dehumidification/climate control on painting & coating project is becoming more common every year. Why? Using climate control on an SSPC project helps the industrial painter hold the blast, prevent flash rusting, blistering and paint failures.
Why use Climate Control on a Painting/Coating Project?
- Prevent rust bloom, blistering and curing failures
- Provide optimal conditions for surface preparation
- Deliver specified temperature and humidity conditions
- Eliminate work delays
- Improve application of steel surface paint
- Control/reduce moisture
- Maintain surface temperatures
- Condition interior spaces during renovation/repairs
The Benefits of Using Climate Control
- Provide ideal environment and control all climate settings
- Eliminate weather delays
- Conform to coating spec requirements (i.e. Navy)
- Improve life of coatings
- Safe and effective work environment
A combination of dehumidification and temperature control equipment helps meet product/owner specifications, as well as improve the finished product, if not worker safety inside tanks.

Climate Control and Power for a Water Tank
A water tank in Chatham, Illinois needed a new coat of paint. DRYCO was called in to assist with the climate conditions. A dehumidifier powered by a generator were used to create an ideal environment for the fresh coat of paint to dry.

Blasting & Painting Sped up with Heat and Dehumidification
In Collinsville, Oklahoma this water purification tank was in need of a new coat of paint. DRYCO was called in to assist in the process and help provide ideal environmental conditions. Technician Andrew Redoble delivered and set up one (1) 5,000cfm desiccant dehumidifier and one (1) 60kW heater.
This dehumidification and heating equipment helps deliver dry, hot air that helps control moisture while the tank is being blasted and also expedites the drying process of freshly applied paint. This job was sold by:
Mark Santosuosso of the DRYCO Houston area office.

Climate Control Equipment Keeps Appropriate Humidity Levels
This tank blasting and coating project is located in sunny Wilmington, NC. The DRYCO desiccant dehumidifier pictured is running on 100% outside return air (as all tank jobs should). The long duct run shown is 125’ in length and is stubbed into the top of the water tank allowing the dehumidified air to drop down and condition the space. The contracting crew set up a dust collector duct pictured on the bottom portion of the tank for their blasting process. DRYCO tech David Sayers put the duct runs together and the contracting crew lifted the duct to their access point. This project was sold and managed by DRYCO Virginia representative, Chris Mayer.
