Indian American Scientist Viral Patel Invents Ultrasonic Dryer, which doesn’t Involve Evaporation

In the latest invention, humans have been given an ultrasonic dryer that will not need heat to dry clothes

  • Viral Patel, an Indian American Scientist, has invented a dryer that uses ultrasonic ways of drying clothes
  • The dryer does not use heat. And it is claimed to be five times more efficient than a regular dryer
  • The inventor is in talks with GE Appliances to bring it in the consumer market 

July 14, 2017: Viral Patel is an Indian American researcher and development associate at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Tennesse. A team of scientists led by him has invented an Ultrasonic Dryer, but unlike a conventional dryer, it would not involve evaporation.

Any conventional dryer, as he explained, is straightforward in its function. It collects air and pushes it in the washing drum, on the way passing through a heater. This heat further absorbs the moisture from clothes.

However, in Patel’s Ultrasonic Dryer, the machine pulls up water from the wet clothes. It consists of transducers that vibrate (when the voltage is applied) at high frequency sucking the water out of clothes. There is no heat involved. As Viral Patel stated to Knoxville News Sentinel, “Instead of evaporation, its technically performing mechanical extraction of the moisture within the fabric.”

The Ultrasonic Dryer is five times more efficient than any other dryer before it.
