|Issue Date:||Nov-1999||Citation:||Chou, S.K.,Hawlader, M.N.A.,Ho, J.C.,Chua, K.J. (1999-11). The contact factor for dryer performance and design. International Journal of Energy Research 23 (14) : 1277-1291. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||We describe an approach using the contact factor (CF) as the dryer performance and design parameter. The CF is calculated using known drying variables with a view to minimizing the drying costs. An algorithm to obtain the 'economic' CF for drying is presented. Besides being a design parameter of single-stage dryers, the CF is a useful parameter in determining the schedule of cascade dryers in multi-stage drying. We demonstrate the dryer component selection process using a set of design charts for heat pump dryers.
