    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract A simulation model for energy consumption sensitivity analysis is developed for an adsorption dryer utilizing the released heat of adsorption for drying. The system is optimized with respect to the regeneration air inlet temperature, ratio of adsorbent to drying air flowrate and ratio of regeneration air to adsorbent flowrate. The exhaust streams of the process under these optimal operating conditions are analyzed for sensible and latent heat recovery potentials. Using zeolite as adsorbent, it is shown that by proper selection of the optimization variables and recovery of stream energies, the system’s energy performance for low drying temperatures is improved considerably.
