Dryer Performance Evaluations
Dryer performance evaluations identify opportunities and solutions for improving energy efficiency and product quality of drying processes. Dryers consume tremendous amounts of energy and have a direct impact on product quality, but the drying process is highly complex and requires extensive process knowledge to optimize.
Kadant Johnson has performed more than 1,000 dryer audits and each process engineer has more than 15 years of experience in dryer applications. A dryer performance evaluation provides a comprehensive report defining improvement opportunities, quantified benefit, and ROI of operational or equipment changes. Detailed solutions can then be “phased in” to maximize the benefit and minimize cost.
