These Dryer Boosting
Kits DRY04/DRY06 are ideal for solving residential, commercial and
industrial dryer vent problems where more airflow is needed. Most dryers are
designed to vent about 15 feet of duct. Installations that cannot be done
with a short run of duct result in:
•Longer drying cycles
•Increased energy usage and costs
•Excessive wear and tear on the dryer

in-line construction allows for easy installation as well as reduced
clogging. They have a high temperature rating up to 140 degrees F/60 degrees
C. The fan has thermal overload protection and features an automatic reset.
The Suncourt Dryer
Boosting Kits come with an accurate, reliable current sensing switch that
turns the fan on and off when it senses current from the dryer. Stack
effect, wind and installation can interfere with the operation of pressure
switches by starting the fan unnecessarily or simply not turning the fan on

There are important rules concerning the length of duct from
your dryer to the outside of the dwelling. It is unlikely that you will need a
booster fan if the total length of the duct is less than 15 feet. This is
assuming that the duct is at least 4” in diameter, has a smooth and clean
internal surface, is
galvanized sheet metal and that the outside vent is unobstructed.
-Do not install your DRY04/DRY06 closer than 6 feet (1.8 meters) to the dryer
-Do not install your DRY04/DRY06 in a duct with a total equivalent length of
less than 25 feet (7.5 meters).
-Do not install your DRY04/DRY06 in a duct with a total equivalent length
greater than 140 feet (46 meters).
-A lint trap (field supplied) must be installed between the dryer and your
DRY04/DRY06 in the event the DRY04/DRY06 is located less than 15 feet (4.5
meters) (linear feet, not equivalent) from the air exhaust of the dryer.
