Drying and dryers (SRB08)By: SMEITS
Drying is a non-stationary thermodynamical (physical-chemical) and complex technological process, which must ensure preservation of material quality indicators, but also their improvement in many cases. Drying is one of the most important stages in different production processes. Intensive application and development of drying processes also resulted in the development and existence of independent scientific disciplines, such as drying theory and drying technology. The study of moist air properties is necessary for understanding the essence of the drying process, because the most widely used are the drying plants with coupled processes of the transfer of heat and matter between air and material being dried.
