Title: Thermal dryer applications and scope expand

Abstract

Thermal dryers are usually used in the CPI for a large number of manufacturing operations. A study on large, commercial-scale, continuous, convection-type units show energy costs account for 62% of unit manufacturing costs. In many cases, achieving maximum thermal drying efficiency will be the central focus to realizing minimum overall unit manufacturing costs. Practical measures for achieving this are discussed.
