This book stands as a manual and ready reference for the range of professionals involved in industrial drying. It addresses problems connected with most industrial drying systems, too often designed by those with limited formal engineering training in an environment of minimal regulatory oversight. The author explains how many existing drying systems are dangerous and pose fire hazards, create unhealthy working conditions, are highly energy inefficient, and have very little to no primary modeling of key process variables. Equipping readers with the necessary competencies to contend with issues in conducting studies, developing new designs; manufacturing, installing, and servicing industrial drying systems, this volume is ideal for engineers, OEMS, contractors, service technicians, scientists; agriculture, food, wood products manufacturers; and insurance underwriters.
