Abstract

In this study a block oriented modelling technique was introduced in order to simulate the intermittent drying technology process. First, the relevant blocks of the parameters concerning to drying air and the properties of material to be dried were developed. These blocks were then used to set up the full modell of a fix bed dryer including the temperature and moisture distribution of drying air and the material along the depth of the dryer. The simulation results were compared to Bakker-Arkema model with a good agreement Finally, several measurements were performed for the case of thin layer of corn to prove the advantage of the intermittent drying technology. It has been founded that in both energy saving and quality of dried product the intermittent technology has a significant contribution.
