The aim of manufacturing this setup is to investigate the effect of vacuum on drying kinetics of textiles.

The setup consists of mainly: The vacuum chamber, the pneumatic circuit line, the controller, and the chamber internal equipment including heat source, sensors and loadcell.

I also tried to understand the process details by developing a simulation in both Comsol and Matlab.

The simulation helps to figure out the effect of different parameters on instantaneous drying rate under vacuum.
