A Study on the Impact of Different Tumbler Inlet Conditions on the Clothes Dryer’s Tumbler Efficiency
Following the trend of energy saving and carbon reduction, many countries have been developing various energy-saving products to aggressively upgrade or replace electrical products with high energy consumption. Household clothes dryer has become an indispensable home appliance to family life. However, its energy efficiency is low. As tumbler inlet conditions and tumbler efficiency have great effects on clothes dryer performance, this study discuss the clothes drying effect and impact of different tumbler inlet conditions (including air temperature, humidity, and flow rate) on the tumbler efficiency and moisture removal rate (MER) values of the clothes tumbler dryer. The results can provide a reference for clothes dryer system design and performance.
