Does heat assist in drying screed?

Evaporation occurs more as water becomes warmer.

For a screed drying project the faster that water can be drawn out of the floor and removed from the air the more rapid the drying process.

Typically an anhydrite screed takes 60 days to dry naturally at ideal conditions of 20°C and 65% RH. If the temperature were to decrease so would the evaporative rate leading to the drying process taking longer.

Through the input of heat using our forcedrying systems we are able to expel the water from the screed from below as well as removing the moisture from the surface. This is done through using the UFH to heat the base of the screed and push the water upwards and out.

With our forcedrying systems we are able to reduce the time it takes for screed to dry by up to 40 days.
