The image above represents dryer capacity.

To compute for dryer capacity, two essential parameters are needed and these parameters are **material consumption (M _{c}) **and

**drying time (T**

_{D}).The formula for calculating dryer capacity:

D_{c} = ^{Mc} / _{T}_{D}

Where:

D_{c} = Dryer Capacity

M_{c} = Material Consumption

T_{D} = Drying Time

Let’s solve an example;

Given that the material consumption is 28 and the drying time is 34. Find the dryer capacity?

This implies that;

M_{c} = Material Consumption = 28

T_{D} = Drying Time = 34

D_{c} = ^{Mc} / _{T}_{D}

D_{c} = ^{28} / _{34}

D_{c} = 0.82

Therefore, the **dryer capacity **is** 0.82.**

**Calculating for Material Consumption when the Dryer Capacity and the Drying time is Given.**

M_{c} = D_{c} x T_{D}

Where:

M_{c} = Material Consumption

D_{c} = Dryer Capacity

T_{D} = Drying Time

Let’s solve an example;

Find the material consumption when the dryer capacity is 40 and the drying time is 2.

This implies that;

D_{c} = Dryer Capacity = 40

T_{D} = Drying Time = 2

M_{c} = D_{c} x T_{D}

M_{c} = 40 x 2

M_{c} = 80

Therefore, the **material consumption **is **80.**
