The Knowledge Base

FlexAir’s Knowledge Base was envisioned to share an open conversation about dryer systems. Exploring costs of ownership, how a dryer system fits inside today’s modern production environment and reminding us how the laws of physics govern and limit how much we can reasonably expect.

While we can’t comprehensively summarize over 30 years of experience, we hope to diligently assemble a collection of valuable insights helpful to key business personnel for evaluating, selecting and working with different drying technologies. Please take the time to familiarize yourself with these sections and refer to them often.

Business

Operations

Dryers are not one-size-fits-all systems. What factors have brought our industry to the present configuration? Discussion on the nuances of current technologies, products we create, and the equipment we use to make them. How do we shape our drying technology to meet these demands?

Engineering

We cannot change the laws of physics. Understanding the underlying mechanics of evaporative drying and curing will help you understand your current dryer’s strengths and weaknesses, and help you identify the key characteristics required for new business opportunities.
