abstract Because of the numerous common applications of drying processes their energy consumption reduction is an important task. This reduction can be achieved by using appropriate drying methods and/or introducing factors to intensify the process. The electrostatic field seems to be one of the factors that force convective drying. The paper presents the results of convective drying of wheat grain in an electrostatic field
