Title: Analysis of recent patent literature on drying and dryers

Abstract

A preliminary semi-quantitative analysis is made of the recent patent literature related to drying and dryers. US patents granted in the period January 1998 to June 1999 were examined. For this preliminary study, only the abstracts were used to classify the patents by subject area and arrive at some general conclusions. An in-depth overview covering a larger database and full texts of the patents is required to confirm the results presented.
