Paper honeycomb material is used as core material for providing inside structure for products with high demands for light weight, strength and cost. Applications include interior doors, furniture, automotive parts and packaging materials.

The honeycomb arrives at the customers in a compacted form on a roll or pallet and requires expanding to get the correct opening of the cells. After expanding of the honeycomb the moisture percentage within the material needs to be reduced in a dry oven before it can be processed. By evaporating the moisture from the product, the product remains in its expanded state. The process of expanding and drying of the honeycomb will be combined in a single machine, based on a continuous process with variable throughput speeds, ranging up to 200 m/min.

The goal of this assignment is to design a dry oven that is capable of reducing the moisture percentage of the honeycomb material to the desired level.

The challenge is to develop an oven that gets the product to the desired moisture percentage with as little energy as possible. In addition, the drying process must be continuous and reliable
