The five-volume sequence offers a accomplished evaluate of all vital elements of drying know-how like computational instruments at assorted scales (Volume 1), sleek experimental and analytical recommendations (Volume 2), product caliber and formula (Volume 3), strength rate reductions (Volume four) and approach intensification (Volume 5).
Based on high-level state of the art effects contributed via the world over famous specialists within the a number of handled fields, this publication sequence is the last word reference within the zone of commercial drying. situated on the intersection of the 2 major techniques in sleek chemical engineering, product engineering and method structures engineering, the sequence goals at bringing thought into perform with the intention to enhance the standard of high-value dried items, retailer strength, and lower the prices of drying processes.
Volume 4 bargains with the aid of power call for in a variety of drying strategies and parts, highlighting the subsequent themes: strength research of dryers, effective solid-liquid separation ideas, osmotic dehydration, warmth pump assisted drying, zeolite utilization, sunlight drying, drying and warmth therapy for good wooden and different biomass resources, and sludge thermal processing.
Other Volumes and Sets:
Volume 1 - smooth Drying know-how, Computational instruments at various Scales
Volume 1: various version forms for the drying of goods and the layout of drying techniques (short-cut tools, homogenized, pore community, and non-stop thermo-mechanical ways) are taken care of, in addition to computational fluid dynamics, inhabitants balances, and technique structures simulation instruments. Emphasis is wear scale transitions.
Volume 2 - smooth Drying know-how: Experimental Techniques
Volume 2: contains experimental equipment utilized in quite a few industries and in learn to be able to 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 apparatus. 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 elements, and fragile aerogels might be preserved in the course of drying, and the way spray drying and spray fluidized mattress strategies can be utilized for particle formation and formula. equipment for tracking product caliber, comparable to approach analytical expertise, and modeling instruments, corresponding to Monte Carlo simulations, discrete particle modeling and neural networks, are offered with genuine examples from and academia.
Volume five - strategy Intensification
Volume 5: devoted to approach intensification through extra effective distribution and stream of the drying medium, foaming, managed freezing, and the applying of superheated steam, infrared radiation, microwaves, energy ultrasound and pulsed electrical fields. strategy potency is handled along side the standard of delicate items, resembling meals, for a number of hybrid and mixed drying processes.
