(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCEDE DE SECHAGE DE VETEMENTS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A drying apparatus and method are disclosed. The drying apparatus includes a drying compartment and a heating device that heats air to be provided to the compartment. The heating device includes a coil through which is conducted a heated liquid, and the air is heated as it passes along the coil. The heated liquid can be provided from a source internal or external to the drying apparatus and in at least some embodiments is heated water provided from a hydronic heating device located internal to the drying apparatus. In at least some embodiments, the heated air provided through the drying compartment is returned to the heating device and recirculated through the compartment. In at least some of these embodiments, the heated air emanating from the drying compartment passes through a condensing device that removes moisture from the air before it is returned to the heating device.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un appareil et un procédé de séchage. L'appareil comprend un compartiment de séchage et un dispositif de chauffage qui chauffe l'air devant alimenter le compartiment. Le dispositif de chauffage comporte un serpentin dans lequel est conduit un liquide chaud, et l'air est chauffé lorsqu'il passe sur le serpentin. Le liquide peut provenir d'une source interne ou externe à l'appareil de séchage et, dans au moins certains modes de réalisation, consiste en de l'eau chaude produite par un dispositif de chauffage à eau chaude se trouvant dans l'appareil. Dans au moins certains modes de réalisation, l'air chaud alimentant le compartiment de séchage est renvoyé au dispositif de chauffage et recircule dans le compartiment. Dans au moins certains de ces modes de réalisation, l'air chaud provenant du compartiment de séchage traverse un dispositif de condensation qui élimine l'humidité de l'air avant son retour au dispositif de chauffage.
