An introduction to steam-atmosphere drying

Steam-atmosphere drying is much more efficient than the most common drying technique, convection drying. But is it right for your application? Information here explains how steam-atmosphere drying works, outlines the method's benefits and limitations, and details how to determine if this drying technique is right for your product.

Steam-atmosphere drying recirculates rather than vents the exhaust stream and provides free heat for other processes in your plant, making the method significantly more efficient than convection drying. It offers other advantages over convection drying, too, including providing better control of particulate emissions and odors and providing an inert drying atmosphere that eliminates fire and explosion risks.
