In many industries, drying or calcination is one of the most energy intensive processes. It is also an area where major gains in efficiency are achievable. Online moisture analysis of the material being dried can be used for manual or automated control of dryer parameters so as to optimize resident time of the material in the dryer.
This is irrespective of the type of drying equipment be it shaft furnaces, rotary kilns, multiple heath furnaces or fluidized reactors.
