VUTS, a.s. has developed a microwave dryer for textiles with the performance of 23 KW that uses reflecting plates for increasing the efficiency of drying. The energy not absorbed in the material being dried is reflected back by this reflecting plate into the area of the textile. Hot air that is generated during the drying process itself is also used effectively by the microwave dryer. In this way a substantial increase in the efficiency of dryer has been reached. This method of utilizing heated air is protected by patent.
