Product Information

The Phoenix 270HTx LGR puts other dehumidifiers in its class to shame!


This powerful, effective drying device offers "XXLarge" water removal capacity:
161 pints per day at AHAM - while drawing just 8.9 amps of electricity. 



Using Phoenix's patented Bypass Technology, the 270HTx senses and adjusts to temperature changes in the drying area. This is the key to its amazing water removal performance.


There's no need for manual adjustments throughout the drying job -- the Phoenix 270HTx automatically compensates for temperature, making the necessary adjustments, keeping drying progress efficient and effective from start to finish.


At higher temperatures (up through 125°F), where typical LGRs lose effectiveness, the Phoenix 270HTx automatically adjusts to continue removing moisture.


This offers several advantages to the restorer, including faster evaporation rates, quicker drying, and elimination of the need to remove or modify equipment for temperature control.


  • Above 80ºF –
    When used in high temperature conditions (above 80ºF), the refrigerant pressure inside the condenser rises. The automatic bypass door slowly opens between 80ºF and 90ºF to direct additional airflow over the condenser, and direct less airflow across the evaporator. Redirecting the airflow lowers the refrigerant pressure in the condenser while also slowing down the air across the evaporator. Lower airflow across the evaporator allows the air to reach its dew point.

  • Between 50ºF and 80ºF 
    When used in normal operating temperature ranges (50ºF to 80ºF), the automatic bypass door remains closed. This allows increased airflow across the evaporator and increases performance by increasing the amount of air that is dehumidified.

  • Below 50ºF  
    When the Phoenix 270HTx LGR is used in very cool operating temperatures (below 50ºF), frost will form on the evaporator coil as it dehumidifies. When enough frost forms the solid state controls will initiate a defrost cycle. The defrost cycle periodically turns off the compressor while allowing the blower to run. The automatic bypass door will remain closed in this operating range. Increased airflow and static pressure will help defrost the evaporator more quickly and efficiently.


The 270HTx also features an improved cabinet design that incorporates a streamlined body with beveled edges and recessed fasteners. Combined with its improved balance and large inset wheels, the 270HTx is much easier to transport, load and unload, and maneuver around the job site.


The Phoenix 270HTx comes standard with 65% MERV-11 air filtration. This filtration improves the air quality in the areas being dried and assures the continued optimal performance of the refrigeration system. The multiple ducting options on the Phoenix 270HTx allow for ducting both the intake air and the filtered, dehumidified exhaust air.



  • Automatic Bypass Technology
    Patented technology automatically adjusts for temperature variation, increasing performance over a wider operating range
