DRYERDryer - is an equipment used in removing moisture or solvents from a wetmaterial or product.Hygroscopic Substance - a substance that can contained bound moistureand is variable in moisture content which they posses at different times.Weight of Moisture - amount of moisture present in the product at the startor at the end of the drying operation.Bone Dry Weight - it is the final constant weight reached by a hygroscopicmaterial when it is completely dried out. It is the weight of the product without the presence of moisture.Gross Weight - it is the sum of the bone-dry weight of the product and theweight of moisture.Moisture Content - it is the amount of moisture expressed as a percentage of the gross weight or the bone dry weight of the product. A) Wet Basis - is the moisture content of the product in percent of the gross weight. B) Dry Basis 0r Regain - it is the moisture content of the product in percent of the bone dry weight.

Continuous Drying - is that type of drying operation in which the materialto be dried is fed to and discharge from the dryer continuously.Batch Drying - is that type of drying operation in which the material to be dried is done in batches at definite interval of time.CLASSIFICATION OF DRYERS1. Direct Dryers - conduction heat transfer2. Indirect Dryers - convection heat transfer3. Infra-red Dryers - radiation heat transferPRODUCT SYMBOLS1. GW = BDW + M2. Xm = [M/GW] x 100% (wet basis)3. Xm = [M/BDW] x 100% (dry basis or regain)where: GW - gross weight BDW - bone dry weight M - weight of moisture Xm - moisture content

It is desired to designed a drying plant to have a capacity of 680 kg/hr ofproduct 3.5% moisture content from a wet feed containing 42% moisture.Fresh air at 27°C with 40% RH will be preheated to 93°C before enteringthe dryer and will leave the dryer with the same temperature but with a60% RH. Find: a) the amount of air to dryer in m3/sec ( 0.25) b) the heat supplied to the preheater in KW (16) At 27 °C DB and 40% RH At 93° C and W = .0089 kgm/kgda W = .0089 kgm/kgda h = 117.22 KJ/kgda h = 49.8 KJ/kgda υ = 1.05 m3/kgda At 93 °C and 60% RH W = 0.54 kgm/kgda h = 1538.94 KJ/kgda

Raw cotton has been stored in a warehouse at 29°C and 50% relativehumidity, with a regain of 6.6%. (a) the cotton goes through a mill andpasses through the weaving room kept at 31°C and 70% relative humiditywith a regain of 8.1%. What is the moisture in 200 kg of cotton? (b) for200 kg of cotton from the warehouse, how many kilograms should appearin the woven cloth, neglecting lintage and threadlosses? ANSWER: a) 12.4 kg ; b) 202.8 kgGW = BDW + MM = Xm(BDW)BDW = GW/(1+Xm)Given:XmA = 0.066 ; XmB = 0.081GWA = 200 kgBDW = 187.61 kgMA = 12.4 kgMB = 15.2 kgGW = 202.8 kg

A 10 kg sample from a batch of material under test is found to have a BDWof 8.5 kg. This material is processed and is then found to have a regain(dry basis moisture content) of 20%. How much weight of product appears for each kilogram of original material. (1.02 kg/kg)Given:GWA = 10 kg ; BDW = 8.5 kg ; XmB = 0.20 (dry basis)M = GW - BDWMA = 1.5 kgMB = XmB(BDW)MB = 1.7 kgGW = BDW + MGWB = 10.2 kgGWB/GWA = 1.02
