A potato chips manufacturing facility utilizes a rotary drum tumbler oven to cook the extruded potato pellets. That oven is of cylindrical shape, open from both sides, leading to heat loss to the surrounding, and thus additional consumption for the electric heaters.
Installing shutters for the two ends of the oven, with design that mitigates any impact on the process, or quality of the product, serves in reducing the radiation heat loss, and saves on electricity consumption
