Dehumidifying raw materials

Our recommendations

Screw conveyor with induction drying

Potential benefits

  • +Very high energy yield
  • +Very precise temperature control


  • Heating of nonconducting materials (e.g., glass) with the help of a susceptor made of a material like graphite that can absorb energy and convert it into heat

Heating by electromagnetic induction involves placing the material or product in a fluctuating magnetic field. Heat may be applied directly to the product, which heats it from inside, or indirectly to a surrounding cover made of metal or other material, heating it by induction. For more information, see Section 4.6.4 of the page New Energy Efficient Technologies That Are Applicable to Manufacturing Processes on the Natural Resources Canada Web site.
