  2. 2. Drying kinetics, coalescence and agglomeration of dairy products particles

    Author : Loredana Malafronte; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : single particle; stickiness; agglomeration; spray drying; modelling; drying-kinetics; coalescence; dairy;

    Abstract : Spray drying is used in the food, pharmaceutical, and chemical industries for producing powder from a liquid feed. The unique advantages of spray drying are producing powders of a specific particle size and moisture content, handling heat sensitive products, and high capacity. However, spray drying is a complex process. READ MORE

  3. 3. Knowledge intensive business services in non-core areas : Preconditions and strategies for value creation and competitiveness
