Drying Kinetics of Saw Dust in Tray Dryer

C. SRINIVASA KANNAN, N. BALA SUBRAMANIAN

Abstract


Drying kinetics of palm wood saw in tray drying covering wide range in operating conditions have been investigated in the present study. The drying rate increased with an increase in the temperature and flow rate of the heating medium increased, and decreased with an increase in the bed height.  A model has been developed based on Fick’s law of diffusion to explain the drying kinetics.
