About Total Drying
Industrial drying technology is an area which demands an innovative approach to produce solutions which satisfy customers demands.
The problems will not be solved by anything less than a dynamic partnership betweenscientists, technologists and manufacturers.
How can low energy methods be incorporated into the drying process?
How can low noise techniques be applied to high speed flow impact?
How can total moisture removal be achieved on fast moving containers?
How can condensation on cold surfaces be stopped?
How can bacteria spread by air-born moisture droplets be removed?
The project that is currently in place as a Knowledge Transfer Partnership between Secomak Ltd and the University of Hertfordshire addresses these problems.
If you would like to be involved in any aspect of this work or would like to contribute your views on drying processes and problems please contact us via this blog.
This Partnership received financial support from the Knowledge Transfer Partnerships programme (KTP). KTP aims to help businesses to improve their competitiveness and productivity through the better use of knowledge, technology and skills that reside within the UK Knowledge Base. KTP is funded by the Technology Strategy Board along with the other government funding organisations.

KTP Module 2 Residential Course

David Palmer (KTP Associate) recently took part in the KTP Module 2 Residential Course at Lympley near Bath. He is seen in the photograph in his role as Team Leader for the 'French Hacker' team photographed at Hungerford Castle.
The team were given a £15 budget to spend on a trip to a local landmark. They were tasked with obtaining entry to the Castle and taking a photograph, purchasing memorabilia and learning the history of the site to be given at a presentation.
David and his team excelled by covering all aspects of the task with a total expenditure of only £5.94!

Pictured with David in his international team are from left to right: Matthew (from Blackburn), Heidi (Finland), Christophe (France), David (Hertfordshire), Shammo ( Scotland).
