Dryer System Audits save you money...
Dryer balances change based on the drying rate, which is dictated, by the product qualities, and dryer capabilities.
Dryers are used in a variety of industrial plants including foods, paper, chemicals, textiles, tobacco, non-wovens, wood, and printing.
The drying process can account for a major portion of a plants energy cost and will have a direct effect on the profitability of the process.
Product changes required by manufacturing will impact the dryers performance including product basis weight, moisture content, consistency or permeability. Changes in a product mix can cause uneven drying, or moisture profile differences requiring over drying to compensate for the variation, slowing down the process and wasting energy. A bottleneck at the dryer will have a major impact on the bottom line.
Dryer balances change based on the drying rate, which is dictated, by the product qualities, and dryer capabilities. Products that are dried too rapidly may produce unacceptable quality, and too slowly unprofitable.
A dryer system audit will include an analysis of the fundamental dryer design and the effectiveness to the process. All system parameters will be collected including mass flow rates of the air systems and products. Computer modeling will be created to simulate the process and energy measurements will be determined. This computer model will be used to determine the impact of modifications to the dryer, manufacturing output and, the impact on energy costs.
