Mechanism in Drying

• Drying is governed by principles of
transport of heat and mass.

• It is a diffusional process in which the
transfer of moisture to the surrounding
medium takes place by the evaporation of
surface moisture

• And as soon as some of the surface
moisture vaporizes, more moisture is
transported from interior of the solid to its
