Industrial air dryers are needed for most ways to process materials, but they are usually expensive to buy and last for a long time. This makes it even more important to choose the right dryer for your processing needs since the wrong dryer can damage the quality of the material and the business’s finances in the long run. This is hard to do because there are many different kinds of industrial air dryers, each with pros and cons.
But before you test, there are a few things you should think about to figure out what kind of industrial air dryers you should look into:
Size and Weight
The first step is to determine how dense the material is when it’s in the right amount and how big the pieces need to be dried. A small powder will need a different way to dry than a sludge of the same size, and big things will also have different needs. How much water needs to be dried
Even though it seems obvious, this is often forgotten when drying techniques are looked at. You will need to know the dryer’s starting moisture level and how much you want it to dry. Tests can be used to figure out the difference in weight between the wet and dry percentages. The size of the dryer is then based on how much water needs to be dried. If the per cent is even a little off, the goal water weight can change a lot, which means the dryer won’t work right and won’t be the right size.
Reaction to Heat
Most of the time, heat is used to dry things, but some things only respond to heat at a certain temperature. Some goods can start a chemical reaction, especially if the liquid dried out is a chemical solution. If other things reach a certain temperature or are exposed to strong heat for a long time, they may melt or catch fire. It’s also possible for one type of heat source to hurt you but not another.
Cost and Efficiency
One of the most important things to consider when buying an industrial air dryer is how much it will cost throughout its life. Some options might be cheaper at first, but they might not work as well and cost more than a dryer, which is more expensive but does the job well. The types of fuel used for drying should be taken into account, but costs should be based on something other than current fuel prices. Instead, they should be based on long-term trends and projections.
Set a return on investment goal for your equipment early in the planning and research stages. This will make it easier for you to know what to look for in industrial air dryers and what kind of performance you should expect from them.
