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.
