Single-Pass Dryer

The multi-zone, single pass dryer shown below is used for a temperature sensitive product as part of a process involving several steps. Uneven flow patterns within the dryer were resulting in non-uniform treatment and product defects that limited the capacity of the dryer. Using CFD analysis, internal flow control devices were designed that provided substantially improved flow.

Installation of the recommended changes transformed the dryer from the rate-limiting step in the production cycle to the star performer and also eliminated process defects.
