Simulation of the Operation of a Infrared Gas Heaters for the Finishing of Leathers

Jesus M. Nieto, Jöns A. Sanchez, Manuel R. Carbajal, Hector I. Castañeda


We present the study of a gas infrared operating dryer for leather finishing, using infrared thermography and simulation using finite element method, these studies and simulations are aimed at redesigning the infrared dryer to improve industrial efficiency. We hope to improve the simulation model for evaluating others radiation shield materials and wind knife for drying.
