Drying characteristics of oil shale

Energy, 1992, vol. 17, issue 3, 303-308
The tray-drying process for oil shale has been analyzed and modeled. The results for the falling drying-rate domain were correlated with a generalized exponential model that incorporates the effects of dry-bulb temperature and particle size. The results indicate that the drying process is a strong function of the operating dry-bulb temperature. The effect of temperature is more pronounced for particles smaller than 2 mm than for larger particles. The particle size was found not to be important at low temperatures of about 50 °C but was important for particles larger than 4 mm at temperatures greater than 67 °C.
