BOMBINO MATOS, Eugenio F.  y  PINEDA REVILLA, Edel. Simulation of biomass pneumatic drying with ascending swirling movement. Ingeniería Mecánica [online]. 2017, vol.20, n.3, pp. 107-114. ISSN 1815-5944.

Considering the layer form acquired by the particles during the studying process it was necessary to define the relation cheap between the heat and mass transfer area and particles flow to simulate with more precision this kind of drying.  The simulations results were compared, by a statistical analysis based in Statgraphics-Centurion V15 program, with the results obtained in others pneumatic bagasse dryers studies and were similar and for that reason it was categorical that is correct the definition made about the relation cheap area/material flow defined in this work and it’s possible to reduce pneumatic dryer height by using this method. This reduction that can be seen by the Height Reduction Sing (HRS) of the drying column, defined in the work, will permit more compact dryers.

Palabras clave : pneumatic drying; drying in ascending swirling; biomass drying.
