NOTE A description of the principles of operation of the dryers within the Scope of this International Standard is given in Annex A. This International Standard identifies test methods for measuring dryer parameters that include the following: - pressure dew point; - flow rate; - pressure drop; - compressed-air loss; - power consumption; - noise emission. This International Standard also provides partial-load tests for determining the performance of energy saving devices or measures. The mounting, operating and loading conditions of dryers for the measurement of noise are given in Annex C.
