Abstract

Hot impinging air jets are usually used to increase heat and mass transfer. The dehydration of materials is a procedure of common significance in the chemical processes, forensic science and food industries; in the fabrication of paper, plastics and textiles as well. Effective drying of thin ink films is becoming progressively significant in the quickly development printing, packaging and coating industries. In order to minimize capital and operating cost, variables need to be optimized. For both researchers and commercial dryers, an optimization of the nozzles under striking air jets is offered for ink drying. To supply information to industrial users, a comprehensive literature review was presented to the research. An outline of the previous work of impinging air jets is also given.
