Komline-Wyssmont Testing Lab

Komline-Wyssmont’s testing facilities have proven to be a valuable asset to hundreds of companies. Located within easy reach of all major New York area airports, the New Jersey Turnpike and the George Washington Bridge, the laboratory is easily accessible to customers who fly or drive in with product samples for testing.

Lab testing is thorough and frequently reveals characteristics about the product, which are new to the client. The prospect receives a complete test report with drying curve and air material temperature profiles, plus a sample of the dried product.

Tests are run in the unique Komline-Wyssmont laboratory dryer, designed to allow accurate scale-up to 20,000 lbs./hr quantities in the TURBO-DRYER®. Tests are run on a 2-3 pound sample. Komline-Wyssmont is alone in being able to guarantee the scale-up from tests on such small samples. This is a significant advantage when piloting is not feasible.

A 5-10 pound sample of wet material and a few ounces of satisfactory dried product for comparison are required for testing. An extra feature of the Komline-Wyssmont lab is that many tests can be run in a short period of time.

There is a set fee per day for drying or cooling. Most tests are completed in two days. In unusual situations, where special preparations or precautions are required, the home office will quote a customized fee. The charge only partially defrays Komline-Wyssmont cost. If a TURBO-DRYER® is purchased as a result of the test, the fee is normally credited to the customer.
