Abstract

The application relates to an assembly for drying a product, comprising at least on drying device and at least one adsorption device, in which the adsorption device is provided with regenerable adsorption material for extracting water from a gas and comprises a gas inlet and a gas outlet, and is adapted is to bring the gas into contact with the regenerable adsorption material between the gas inlet and the gas outlet, the drying device is adapted to transport the product along a drying section and comprises a first gas inlet, a second gas inlet situated at a distance from the first gas inlet, a first gas outlet, and a second gas outlet situated at a distance from the first gas outlet, in which the gas inlets and gas outlets of the drying device are arranged with respect to one another in such a manner that the gas and the product are brought into contact with one another along a first part of the drying section and a second part of the drying section, and the drying device and the adsorption device are in gas communication with one another in order to bring the gas in contact with the regenerable adsorption material before the first part of the drying section and before the second part of the drying section. The application furthermore relates to a method for drying a product, in which a gas is brought into contact with a regeneralbe adsorption material, and is subsequently alternately brought into contact with the product to be dried and regenerable adsorption material. The invention makes it possible to improve the drying process.
