Finding the optimal conditions and being able to keep them stable is the key to lower cost and energy efficient manufacturing.
When it comes to food drying, for example, most experts agree that it is important to dry them sufficiently to prevent the growth of microbes and maintain product safety. On the other hand, minimizing the drying process will save energy and costs, as seen in the drying simulator. The key is to increase the input volume or humidity levels enough to minimize energy use, but not too much to affect the quality of the final product.
As for the levels to be set, this will depend on the attributes of the product, such as the desired aw value of the final product. Because the optimal input volume varies by product in the drying process, there is no universal drying theory. It is basically up to the manufacturer to define the optimal dew point or relative humidity levels of the exhaust air. But in the drying stages, regardless of the desired level, know the values of the parameters such as the adhesion point, the adsorption isotherm and the glass transition point (Tg) and maintain stable conditions with sensor measurement technology Accurate and stable HUMICAP is a key and essential methodology for the development of more energy and cost-effective manufacturing processes.
