Global Industrial Dryers Market: Introduction
Process of removing moisture from any substance can be done by dryers. Industrial dryers are mainly deployed to reduce moisture level during bulk material processing. Different type of dryers such as air dryers, spray dryers, infrared dryers etc. are used for removal of moisture from various substances. Basic principle of industrial dryers is to draw moisture from internal parts of each particle to the surface, utilizing one or all heat transfer mechanism from amongst conduction, convection and radiation. An industrial dryer is composed of numerous components which include – electric motor, fan, tube coil, stainless steel frame etc. Depending on their end-use, different kind of industrial dryers are employed for different applications. As an example, spray dryers are mainly used in the food processing industry while fluid bed dryers are largely utilized in pharmaceutical industry. Further, there are different kind of controlling methods available for industrial dryers which include manual, feedback, feedforward, model based and microprocessor based control.
