• What is Smart Material air drying?

  • Smart material air drying is dehumidification of an air stream with a new smart material. The innovative smart material is capable of taking up large amounts of moist from the air. By warming the material by means of a warm air stream, the moist is removed from the smart material and discharged, so called "regeneration".

  • The unique aspect of the smart material is that it can be regenerated at very low temperatures, ranging from 40 – 60 °C. This makes the air dryer extremely energy efficient and it allows for the use of sustainable low temperature heat sources for the regeneration. The smart material is applied on a drying wheel through which the air is transported. The smart material takes out moist from this air. A quarter of the wheel is seperated and a seperate warm air stream passes through this part to take out the moist and discharge it.
