The five-volume sequence offers a complete evaluate of all vital facets of drying know-how like computational instruments at diverse scales (Volume 1), smooth experimental and analytical recommendations (Volume 2), product caliber and formula (Volume 3), strength discounts (Volume four) and strategy intensification (Volume 5).
Based on high-level state-of-the-art effects contributed by way of the world over famous specialists within the a variety of handled fields, this ebook sequence is the last word reference within the zone of commercial drying. positioned on the intersection of the 2 major techniques in sleek chemical engineering, product engineering and strategy structures engineering, the sequence goals at bringing idea into perform with a view to enhance the standard of high-value dried items, retailer power, and lower the prices of drying processes.
Volume 4 offers with the relief of strength call for in quite a few drying procedures and components, highlighting the next themes: power research of dryers, effective solid-liquid separation recommendations, osmotic dehydration, warmth pump assisted drying, zeolite utilization, sunlight drying, drying and warmth therapy for reliable wooden and different biomass resources, and sludge thermal processing.
Other Volumes and Sets:
Volume 1 - smooth Drying know-how, Computational instruments at diverse Scales
Volume 1: varied version forms for the drying of goods and the layout of drying strategies (short-cut tools, homogenized, pore community, and non-stop thermo-mechanical techniques) are handled, in addition to computational fluid dynamics, inhabitants balances, and procedure platforms simulation instruments. Emphasis is wear scale transitions.
Volume 2 - glossy Drying expertise: Experimental Techniques
Volume 2: includes experimental equipment utilized in quite a few industries and in examine with a purpose to layout and keep an eye on drying approaches, degree moisture and moisture distributions, symbolize particulate fabric and the interior micro-structure of dried items, and examine the habit of particle structures in drying gear. Key issues comprise acoustic levitation, near-infrared spectral imaging, magnetic resonance imaging, X-ray tomography, and positron emission tracking.
Volume three - glossy Drying know-how: Product caliber and Formulation
Volume 3: Discusses how wanted homes of meals, biomaterials, energetic pharmaceutical parts, and fragile aerogels will be preserved in the course of drying, and the way spray drying and spray fluidized mattress procedures can be utilized for particle formation and formula. equipment for tracking product caliber, resembling technique analytical know-how, and modeling instruments, resembling Monte Carlo simulations, discrete particle modeling and neural networks, are provided with genuine examples from and academia.
Volume five - procedure Intensification
Volume 5: devoted to strategy intensification through extra effective distribution and circulate of the drying medium, foaming, managed freezing, and the appliance of superheated steam, infrared radiation, microwaves, strength ultrasound and pulsed electrical fields. strategy potency is taken care of together with the standard of delicate items, similar to meals, for numerous hybrid and mixed drying processes.
