The evaporation of water is a major energy consumer around the world where the evaporation of water from agricultural products, natural resources, processed foods and feeds, and petrochemical products is required for long term storage, subsequent processing or other desired attributes.

The control of product attributes associated with drying can also be challenging in terms of measurement and modelling which may lead to inefficiencies in the operation of a dryer.

This discussion below will address solutions to improve the thermal efficiency of dryers and to control the critical properties of the product being dried.  In addition, the benefits of haring information between the dryer supplier and the dryer operator will be discussed through the use of the Industrial Internet of Thing

Keywords: heat recover; design; control.
