How much increased water content in dryer section exhaust air will improve the heat recovery efficiency?

Exhaust air flow from the dryer section is normally adjusted by maintaining constant water content in air flow. In some situations, exhaust air flow needs to be decreased thus causing decrease for the heat recovery process. Decreased humidity level decreases energy efficiency by means of lower heat recovery rate and higher specific heat consumption of the drying process.
