In search of the elusive "optimal" dryer

In this article, an engineer cautions you that the traditional dryer is often not the "optimal" dryer for your application. He cites several examples from his own experience to explain what's involved in selecting a dryer that's close to that elusive optimal target. Sections describe where to find information, discuss several factors in dryer selection, and cover dryer tests.

There's a basic difference between traditional and optimal equipment solutions to a drying problem. The traditional solution is a dryer that's been used in the past for that application, frequently without considering factors affecting the entire process. But the optimal solution is a dryer that's been selected after a close look at the process before, during, and after drying.
