The five-volume sequence offers a entire review of all vital elements of drying know-how like computational instruments at varied scales (Volume 1), glossy experimental and analytical suggestions (Volume 2), product caliber and formula (Volume 3), strength discount rates (Volume four) and approach intensification (Volume 5).
Based on high-level state of the art effects contributed through across the world well-known specialists within the numerous handled fields, this booklet sequence is the last word reference within the sector of commercial drying. positioned on the intersection of the 2 major techniques in smooth chemical engineering, product engineering and procedure structures engineering, the sequence goals at bringing concept into perform with a purpose to increase the standard of high-value dried items, store power, and lower the prices of drying processes.
In Volume 1, different version varieties for the drying of goods and the layout of drying methods (short-cut tools, homogenized, pore community, and non-stop thermo-mechanical techniques) are handled, besides computational fluid dynamics, inhabitants balances, and strategy structures simulation instruments. Emphasis is wear scale transitions.
Other Volumes and Sets:
Volume 2 - sleek Drying know-how: Experimental Techniques
Volume 2: includes experimental tools utilized in numerous industries and in learn which will layout and keep an eye on drying approaches, 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 gear. Key subject matters contain acoustic levitation, near-infrared spectral imaging, magnetic resonance imaging, X-ray tomography, and positron emission tracking.
Volume three - glossy Drying expertise: Product caliber and Formulation
Volume 3: Discusses how wanted homes of meals, biomaterials, lively pharmaceutical components, and fragile aerogels may 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. tools for tracking product caliber, corresponding to approach analytical expertise, and modeling instruments, reminiscent of Monte Carlo simulations, discrete particle modeling and neural networks, are offered with actual examples from and academia.
Volume four - glossy Drying know-how: strength Savings
Volume 4: bargains with the aid of strength call for in a number of drying methods and components, highlighting the next themes: power research of dryers, effective solid-liquid separation thoughts, osmotic dehydration, warmth pump assisted drying, zeolite utilization, sun drying, drying and warmth therapy for strong wooden and different biomass assets, and sludge thermal processing.
quantity five - procedure Intensification
Volume 5: devoted to method intensification by means of extra effective distribution and stream of the drying medium, foaming, managed freezing, and the applying of superheated steam, infrared radiation, microwaves, strength ultrasound and pulsed electrical fields. approach potency is handled at the side of the standard of delicate items, reminiscent of meals, for a number of hybrid and mixed drying processes.
