Characterisation of water transfer in a low temperature convective wood drier: influence of the operating parameters on the mass transfer coefficient

Abstract : Different drying cycles were performed in a low temperature convective and homogeneous wood drier in order to evaluate the in¯uence of four operating parameters (wood thickness, air velocity, air temperature and air humidity) on the global mass transfer coef®cient. The wood species used in this study was spruce (Picea abies Karst.). From the synthesis of the results, a general correlation has been obtained permitting to accurately calculate this transfer coef®cient. Moreover, it justi®ed the use of the simple mathematical model chosen to represent the variations of the parameters characterising the wood and air during a drying cycle. Charakterisierung des Wasserflusses in einem Niedrigtemperatur-Trockner: Einfluû der Variablen auf den Koeffizienten fu Èr Massentransport In der Absicht, den Ein¯uû von vier Variablen (Holz-dichte, Luftgeschwindigkeit, Lufttemperatur und Luft-feuchte) auf den Koef®zienten fu Èr Massentransport zu bestimmen, wurden verschiedene Trocknungszyklen in einem homogenen Niedrigtemperatur-Trockner durch-gefu Èhrt. Die hierfu Èr verwendete Holzart war Fichte (Picea abies Karst). Im Anschluû an die Zusammenfassung der Ergebnisse wurde eine allgemeine Korrelation, mit der dieser Koef®zient auf eine bestimmte Weise berechnet werden kann, erzielt. Diese rechtfertigte die Wahl eines einfachen Simulationsmodells, das die Vera Ènderung der charakteristischen Luft-und Holz-parameter wa Èhrend der Trocknung darstellt.
