Because an industrial dryer is a major capital investment for any organization, it pays to select and test the unit carefully. Dryer life can be measured in decades, so the selection of inefficient equipment can have a long-term impact on the economic health of the facility that houses it. The selection of drying equipment is predominantly an exercise in which knowledge, experience and science all play important roles. Because of the complexity of the drying process, many factors need to be considered and weighed.
Before choosing an industrial dryer, conduct a preliminary analysis of your drying needs. Ask questions about your material, the production and final product quality requirements, and your plant.
