Abstract
Drying processes have been with us for a long time. During the Roman Empire, for example, the sun was used as a heat source in the convective drying of bricks, while during the industrial revolution, moist ceramic products were carried into and out of steam heated rooms by child labourers since it was deemed more cost effective to maintain a constant room temperature than to cool the room down in order to remove the products in a safe and healthy manner. Drying is the removal of volatile substances (moisture) by heat from a mixture that yields a solid product [1]. The volatile substances or solvents used in the coating process can range from simple to handle mat...
