Sawdust has to be dried while in storage waiting to be processed.
The time window for the drying is 12 to 36 hours.
The storage room is 20m x 20m x7m (L x W x H).
The sawdust is stored on 300m2 of the 400m2 available. It is placed on tent vented steel sheets at 0.5m above ground.
This gives a sawdust volume of 100m3 and an aproximate weight of 21000kg. Sawdust humidity 50%. I would like to take it as low as possible in the available time window. Let's say 30% would be acceptable. 20% would be great.
What airflow has to be provided from under the vented steel sheets in terms of volume, temperature and humidity?
I was thinking to use tubes to distribute the air under the steel sheet. The air in will be matched with roof fans taking the air out. I would like to have a rough idea so I know with what equipment to start.
