Dr Gasparini said: “Drying processes are very important in a lot of manufacturing applications. Getting it right can be the difference between a failed product and one of optimal quality. Choosing the right drying process and ensuring that it is running efficiently can help to minimize both energy consumption and running costs, while still meeting the drying requirements of the product.

“In the webinar we will take a look at some real world examples of drying procedures. Attendees from manufacturing backgrounds will likely see some of the issues they themselves have faced with failures or low quality finishes following drying. We will explain the reasoning behind this and give an overview of how issues can be resolved and best practices to follow.”
