Abstract: In this study, energy and exergy analysis of the drying process in producing a sealing profile with extrusion in Manisa, using real operational data was conducted. The drying system was analysed in regards to changes in ambient temperature (0-30°C) and drying air temperature (75-105°C). The energy efficiency of the system was in the range of 80.79%-88.24% and the exergy efficiency was in the range of 15.88%-41.94%. As a result of the analysis, it can be concluded that the drying conditions with the highest efficiency values were at 0°C outdoor temperature and 75°C drying air.
