In this project, provided by Rud. Prey GmbH & Co. KG, we focussed on methods for drying fire hoses, and based on this design or improve a fire hose drying system. Nowadays, many different systems for this purpose exist on the market. Thus, our first step was to find all systems and compare several common methods in a decision matrix. Next, we researched current drying technologies in industrial sectors such as, chemical, mechanical, radioactive, conductive, and convective drying. After evaluating them with respect to fire hoses, we concentrated on the applicable ones and performed experiments, in order to find the best combination of technologies. Power and energy calculations were made to support the results. Based on these results, we were able to suggest a combination of suction, microwave and hot air forced convection what could be easily integrated in the Horizontal Process Dryer of Prey.
