Design and Performance Data for Current Drying Systems (Panel Discussion)

Jonathan L. Hackett


It is certainly a pleasure to be with you this morning. Before I say anything else I want to make it clear that I have no intention of standing among the many years of experience which are represented on this panel and proclaim myself to be an expert in cotton drying systems. What I have to offer you is the same thing I have provided to Continental Eagle Corporation: several years of practical experience in the application of drying systems around the world. I have assisted with numerous Continental installations, observed a few of the other systems which have been or will be discussed today, and I have spoken with ginners around the world regarding the success of their systems.

Let me also state that each system being presented today has worked under specific conditions or in given situations. Unfortunately, the customer has the most difficult task in determining the system to best fit their requirements whether it be to increase the drying potential or capacity of an existing plant or construction of a new facility.
