Located within easy reach of all major New York area airports, the New Jersey Turnpike and the George Washington Bridge to Philadelphia, the lab at Wyssmont in Ft. Lee, N.J., is available to customers with product samples for testing.

Thorough lab testing frequently reveals product characteristics that are new to the client. Testing includes a complete report with drying curve and air material temperature profiles, plus a sample of the dried product. The maker of dryers and other industrial equipment runs test in its Wyssmont laboratory dryer, designed for accurate scale-up to 20,000 lb/hr quantities. Tests are run on a two- to three-pound sample, a significant advantage when piloting is not feasible. A five- to 10-pound sample of wet material and a few ounces of satisfactory dried product for comparison are required for testing.

There is a set fee per day for drying or cooling, with most tests completed in two days. For more information, call (201) 947-4600 or go to www.wyssmont.com.
