Technical review on crumb rubber drying process and the potential of advanced drying technique


Tham, Thing Chai and Hii, Ching Lik and Ong, Sze Pheng and Chin, Nyuk Ling and Abdullah, Luqman Chuah and Law, Chung Lim (2014) Technical review on crumb rubber drying process and the potential of advanced drying technique. Agriculture and Agricultural Science Procedia, 2. pp. 26-32. ISSN 2210-7843


Intensive thermal energy and extensive drying period are required in rubber drying process due to its low conductivity and dielectric properties. Thus, selection of advanced drying techniques of crumbs rubber is essential for the sake of efficiency and energy conservation. The integration of advanced dryers ranging from electromagnetic heater, fluidized bed dryer, heat pump and the vacuum environment were discussed in details in paper. In summary, cost and energy efficient dryer is the aim of this research work and it is important that this technology offers a robust and reliable solution to the rubber processing industry.
