The five-volume sequence presents a accomplished evaluate of all vital features of drying know-how like computational instruments at diverse scales (Volume 1), smooth experimental and analytical options (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 through the world over well-known specialists within the numerous taken care of fields, this e-book sequence is the final word reference within the zone of commercial drying. situated on the intersection of the 2 major methods in glossy 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, retailer strength, and reduce the prices of drying processes.

Volume 4 offers with the aid of strength call for in numerous drying methods and components, highlighting the next subject matters: power research of dryers, effective solid-liquid separation recommendations, osmotic dehydration, warmth pump assisted drying, zeolite utilization, sunlight drying, drying and warmth remedy for good wooden and different biomass resources, and sludge thermal processing.


Other Volumes and Sets:

Volume 1 - smooth Drying know-how, Computational instruments at assorted Scales

Volume 1: various version forms for the drying of goods and the layout of drying procedures (short-cut equipment, homogenized, pore community, and non-stop thermo-mechanical methods) are handled, besides computational fluid dynamics, inhabitants balances, and procedure structures simulation instruments. Emphasis is wear scale transitions.


Volume 2 - glossy Drying know-how: Experimental Techniques

Volume 2: includes experimental equipment utilized in numerous industries and in learn with a purpose to layout and keep watch over drying techniques, degree moisture and moisture distributions, signify 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 - smooth Drying expertise: Product caliber and Formulation

Volume 3: Discusses how wanted homes of meals, biomaterials, energetic pharmaceutical components, and fragile aerogels will be preserved in the course of drying, and the way spray drying and spray fluidized mattress techniques can be utilized for particle formation and formula. tools for tracking product caliber, comparable to method analytical know-how, and modeling instruments, comparable to Monte Carlo simulations, discrete particle modeling and neural networks, are offered with genuine examples from and academia.


Volume five - procedure Intensification

Volume 5: devoted to strategy intensification through extra effective distribution and movement of the drying medium, foaming, managed freezing, and the appliance of superheated steam, infrared radiation, microwaves, energy ultrasound and pulsed electrical fields. strategy potency is handled together with the standard of delicate items, akin to meals, for a number of hybrid and mixed drying processes.
