Test unit - Infradryer
The test unit InfraDryer#2 has a drying capacity of 80 kg/hour. The design and assembly has been finalized. Tests are planned in june 2023. The vision is to reduce the energy consumption by 50% compared to competitive technologies by enhancing the mass transfer of water to the air with infrasound.
The principle of drying wheat in a hot air dryer
The air flow has two functions:
- Mass transfer of water from the surface to the air
- Transport of water
Mass transfer requires high air velocity. For water transport, a low air speed is desirable.
The principle of drying wheat in an infrasound dryer
The mass transport of water from the surface to the air is enhanced by an intense infrasound with a high particle velocity.
