Phoenix 270HTx LGR Dehumidifier
The Phoenix 250 MAX combines the ultra-low-grain performance of the 200 MAX with the excellent high-temperature performance of the 200 HT, making it the best-performing dehumidifier in its class in any temperature without bypass or the need for adjustment.

The 270HTx is one of the most popular dehumidifiers used for hydroponic gardening. No matter the external environment, all grow rooms need dehumidification. This is due to transpiration. All water used on plants will end up in the air in the grow room â€“ plants donâ€™t actually absorb water, just the nutrients found within. Once they are done, the excess water is evaporated off through transpiration â€“ ultimately ending up in the air of the grow.
The Phoenix 270HTx is one of the most effective and versatile drying devices available. The Phoenix 270HTx features more water removal (161 pints per day@AHAM) and higher grain depression than other refrigerant dehumidifiers, while drawing only 8.9 amps of electricity.
The 270HTx features Phoenixs patented bypass design, which is now enhanced to compensate for temperature automatically. By sensing and adjusting to temperature changes in the drying chamber, the 270HTx maximizes water removal over an extended operating range without the need for manual adjustments. At higher temperatures, 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.
The downward-focused exhaust airflow directs dehumidified lowgrain air toward the floor, while a raised base improves drying directly under the dehumidifier. The Phoenix 270HTx also features a recessed condensate outlet, inboard wheels, increased airflow with higher static pressure and an improved skid plate design.
As always, Phoenix dehumidifiers feature significant air filtration. The standard 65% MERV-11 filter removes over 90% of sevenmicron particles (the size of a human red blood cell). This filtration improves the air quality in the areas being dried and assures the continued optimal performance of the refrigeration system.
