VUTS has developed a microwave dryer for drying textiles with the capacity of 23 kW using a system of reflective plate to enhance the effect of drying. The energy that is not absorbed in the material being dried is reflected back to the area of the textile by means of this reflective plate. During the process of drying this microwave dryer effectively uses also the heated air that is generated in the actual microwave drying. In this way the effectivity of the dryer has been substantially increased. This way of utilizing the heated air is protected by a patent.
