The five-volume sequence presents a accomplished evaluate of all vital points of drying know-how like computational instruments at diversified scales (Volume 1), sleek experimental and analytical strategies (Volume 2), product caliber and formula (Volume 3), strength mark downs (Volume four) and technique intensification (Volume 5).
Based on high-level state of the art effects contributed through the world over well-known specialists within the quite a few handled fields, this booklet sequence is the last word reference within the region of business drying. positioned on the intersection of the 2 major methods in smooth chemical engineering, product engineering and approach structures engineering, the sequence goals at bringing conception into perform in an effort to increase the standard of high-value dried items, keep strength, and minimize the prices of drying processes.
Volume 4 offers with the relief of strength call for in a variety of drying procedures and components, highlighting the subsequent themes: power research of dryers, effective solid-liquid separation options, osmotic dehydration, warmth pump assisted drying, zeolite utilization, sun drying, drying and warmth remedy for reliable wooden and different biomass assets, and sludge thermal processing.
Other Volumes and Sets:
Volume 1 - glossy Drying know-how, Computational instruments at diversified Scales
Volume 1: different version kinds for the drying of goods and the layout of drying tactics (short-cut tools, homogenized, pore community, and non-stop thermo-mechanical techniques) are handled, besides computational fluid dynamics, inhabitants balances, and technique structures simulation instruments. Emphasis is wear scale transitions.
Volume 2 - glossy Drying expertise: Experimental Techniques
Volume 2: contains experimental equipment utilized in a variety of industries and in examine in an effort to layout and keep an eye on drying strategies, degree moisture and moisture distributions, represent particulate fabric and the inner micro-structure of dried items, and examine the habit of particle platforms in drying apparatus. Key subject matters comprise acoustic levitation, near-infrared spectral imaging, magnetic resonance imaging, X-ray tomography, and positron emission tracking.
Volume three - sleek Drying expertise: Product caliber and Formulation
Volume 3: Discusses how wanted homes of meals, biomaterials, energetic pharmaceutical materials, and fragile aerogels will be preserved in the course of drying, and the way spray drying and spray fluidized mattress methods can be utilized for particle formation and formula. equipment for tracking product caliber, similar to procedure analytical expertise, and modeling instruments, corresponding to Monte Carlo simulations, discrete particle modeling and neural networks, are provided with genuine examples from and academia.
Volume five - method Intensification
Volume 5: devoted to method intensification through extra effective distribution and movement of the drying medium, foaming, managed freezing, and the appliance of superheated steam, infrared radiation, microwaves, strength ultrasound and pulsed electrical fields. procedure potency is taken care of together with the standard of delicate items, reminiscent of meals, for quite a few hybrid and mixed drying processes.
