Almost every material used as bulk is dried during production. The fields of application vary from food to pharmaceuticals, from minerals to detergents, from polymers to paper, from raw materials and commodities to highly formulated specialties. Drying technology is a continuously developing field which bears various challenges. Different sources of pitfalls are scattered over a bunch of stages and fields in industrial production, which may be located in process design, operation and automation, equipment selection and the development of desired product properties. In addition lectures, laboratory practicals and tutorials bring together the theory and practice.
