Optimisation of the Performance of Dryers/Coolers in Animal Feed.


Drying/cooling stages in the animal feed sector aim to bring the hot, damp pellets produced by a press into thermal and hygrometric balance with the ambient air, in the quickest and most cost-effective manner possible. The specificity of this manufacturing stage is to perform both at once: drying and cooling. This is a delicate process as the ambient air used acts both as a drying and cooling vector. The programme aims to introduce simulated dryer/cooler operating conditions in order to enable industrialists to anticipate their actions and to design other operation regulation and management methods or even tools.
