Energy is a significant cost of production. As energy costs rise and fall, the increases are difficult to pass on to customers in the price of products and services. But regardless of current energy costs and current trends, a more energy-efficient process is more competitive.
Safe drying of solvents requires excess ventilation air. Extra air keeps the vaporized solvents well below the concentration where they might burn or explode. A lot of energy goes towards heating ventilation air to the drying temperature.
This white paper explains how safely using an analyzer to continuously monitor the solvent concentration allows the ventilation rate to be adjusted to what is needed for the typical solvent load, or even continuously adjusted to match the actual solvent load at any given time, so there is no need to heat a large excess quantity of ventilation air. It also highlights & explains how to employ the safety ventilation methods found in NFPA-86.
