Summary

New dimensions of control are possible with the use of microprocessor controllers in counter-current convection drying of brick. Emphasis on the computer-controlled process is intended to provide understanding of the application of this control to a complex process, rather than to present a practical control system. The variables of drying and their relation to dryer control are discussed.
