Tjernlund LB2 Dryer Boosters
Dry your clothes faster and prevent lint build up with the LB2 Dryer Duct Boosters. Clothes dryers are often installed in areas of homes where they cannot work effectively leading to long drying times, high energy use, and lint buildup in ductwork. If a dryers exhaust duct run is over 25 equivalent feet and the dryer is experiencing long drying time, your dryer may need a Dryer Duct Booster fan as moist air cannot effectively exit the dryer and exhaust to the outside.
Unlike traditional in-line fans which can clog with lint, the Lint Blitzer impeller is designed to repel lint while providing optimum velocity. 5 year no clog, no maintenance guarantee. Permanently lubricated motor positioned out of the air stream for maximum motor life. The Dryer Duct Booster maintains proper exhaust velocities in duct runs up to 100 equivalent feet, optimizing dryer performance.
The LB2 includes a status panel and meets UL 705 DEDPV & IRC-2015 requirements.

|#2||Q: Will a bath room exhaust fan sharing then same duct and connected to the outlet duct at about 5 from the booster,cause false sensor readings?
A: By code, kitchen and laundry must go all the way out of the house on a dedicated line for each. You may share vents between baths, or other general vent points, but not dryers or range hoods.

|#8||Q: The illustrations all show installation with rigid ductwork. Can this be used with the flexible ductwork typical of dryers? We want to put it in the actual laundry room. Attic access is very difficult in our house.
A: These units need to be at minimum 15 feet fro the dryer to operate correctly. There are sensors on board that will get false readings if it is too close.

|#11||Q: Is it okay if I have the dryer booster 8-10 linear feet from the dryer, if there is one 90 and a 45 in between the dryer and booster? I have heard that a 90 adds five linear feet, and a 45 adds 2-3 feet? Just curious because I saw the previous question and answer, being a minimum of 15 feet.
A: The farther the better, but I would be 10 feet at minimum. You also will want 3 pipe diameters distance from the elbow. i.e. 4 inch pipe dictates 12-15 inches away.

|#12||Q: HOW DO YOU KNOW THE FAN IS WORKING FROM INSIDE THE HOUSE? IS THERE ANY KIND OF INDICATOR LIGHT?
A: Typically it can be heard running in the background, not overly loud, but you can hear some air noise over the dryer. The Fantech DBF4XLT does have an indicator panel if needed
