  • Problems with drying equipment and drying conditions
  • Inappropriate drying temperature and time
  • Low volume of warm air in the dryer
  • Inadequate hopper capacity (i.e., short drying time) - Faulty temperature regulator
  • Blocking of the air filter

Review the drying conditions

  • Optimization of drying conditions
  • Adjustment of the dryer's warm air volume
  • Cleaning of the air filter - Optimization of the hopper capacity
  • Repair of the temperature regulator
