KVANUM, SWEDEN — TORNUM announced on Jan. 26 that its Intelligent Dryer Control (IDC) won the International Product Development Special Award on the AGROmashEXPO 2015 in Budapest, Hungary. The prize ceremony will be Jan. 28.

TORNUM IDC is a software-based control system monitoring and controlling the outgoing moisture content in continuous dryers, consisting of moisture sensors and a control unit. Via the user-friendly interface, a user has full control over the entire drying process on a PC or tablet.

Using information about incoming and outgoing moisture content, the control unit sets the speed of the dryer discharge to obtain the desired moisture content out of the dryer – regardless of ambient conditions.
