Volume 1 - smooth Drying expertise, Computational instruments at various Scales
Volume 1: Diverse version forms for the drying of goods and the layout of drying strategies (short-cut equipment, homogenized, pore community, and non-stop thermo-mechanical techniques) are taken care of, in addition to computational fluid dynamics, inhabitants balances, and method platforms simulation instruments. Emphasis is wear scale transitions.
Volume 2 - glossy Drying expertise: Experimental Techniques
Volume 2: Comprises experimental tools utilized in quite a few industries and in learn in an effort to layout and keep watch over drying strategies, degree moisture and moisture distributions, represent particulate fabric and the interior 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 three: Discusses how wanted houses of meals, biomaterials, energetic pharmaceutical constituents, and fragile aerogels should 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 method analytical know-how, and modeling instruments, comparable to Monte Carlo simulations, discrete particle modeling and neural networks, are provided with genuine examples from and academia.
Volume four - glossy Drying expertise: power Savings
Volume four: Deals with the aid of strength call for in quite a few drying procedures and parts, highlighting the next themes: strength research of dryers, effective solid-liquid separation ideas, osmotic dehydration, warmth pump assisted drying, zeolite utilization, sun drying, drying and warmth remedy for stable wooden and different biomass resources, and sludge thermal processing.
Volume five - strategy Intensification
Volume five: Dedicated to method intensification via extra effective distribution and circulation of the drying medium, foaming, managed freezing, and the applying of superheated steam, infrared radiation, microwaves, energy ultrasound and pulsed electrical fields. approach potency is taken care of along side the standard of delicate items, similar to meals, for numerous hybrid and mixed drying processes.
