Expand your knowledge of industrial dryer fundamentals and learn how to apply proven methods to improve dryer efficiency, reduce operating and energy costs, and improve your operations. This course will focus on the continuous drying of particulate materials from foods to inorganic chemicals.
The efficient operation of industrial dryers requires a working knowledge of the fundamentals of drying, heat transfer, air flows and moisture removal. In this course, you will examine how to select the most suitable dryer to fulfill process objectives, conduct dryer surveys as an aid to problem solving and improving operations, estimate air flows and process design requirements, and identify leaks. You’ll explore methods to achieve energy savings and improve your product.
Who should attend?
Engineers, scientists, researchers, and production personnel who are responsible for the design, operation, selection, maintenance or specification of industrial dryers in food, chemical, petrochemical, biofuels, nutraceutical, mineral, and pharmaceutical operations and applications.
