Conclusion s

CONCLUSIONS

The constant rate drying period and the falling drying rate period were noticeable for the SS drying of the DSG layer on single inert material

Drying on a solid sphere caused the initial moisture content of the sample to increase to the values 10% higher in comparison to the moisture gain on the DSG surface dried on a hollow sphere

The increase in SS temperature from 110 to 160C caused the initial moisture gain to decrease by 15%

The increase in SS velocity from 0.5 to 1.0 m/s caused the initial moisture gain to decrease by 10-15%


Conclusion s1

CONCLUSIONS

The warm-up period of the DSG was influenced by the different heat capacity of inert material

Drying of the DSG on a hollow sphere in comparison to the drying on a solid sphere cut the entire drying time even by 30%

The increase in steam velocity from 0.5 m/s to 1.0 m/s resulted in shortening the entire drying time by almost 40%.

The material dried on the solid teflon sphere showed a substantial delay on the temperature rate increases in the 2nd rate period in comparison with drying on the hollow sphere.
