  1. 1. Development towards an efficient and sustainable biofuel drying

    University dissertation from Växjö University Press

    Author : Peter Bengtsson; Växjö universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; biomass; bioenergy; drying; bed drying; drying zone; modeling; VOC; terpenes; wood fuels; wood chips; sawdust; Norway spruce; Scots pine;

    Abstract : The usage of biofuel as well as wood fuel has increased in Sweden and all of Europe during recent decades, and there are several reasons to believe that this increase will continue. An important reason for this increase is that the environmental and climate problems caused by fossil fuels are becoming even more evident. READ MORE

  2. 2. An Analytical Solution Applied to Heat and Mass Transfer in a Vibrated Fluidised Bed Dryer

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Apolinar Picado; KTH.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Analytical solution; Heat and mass transfer; Temperature and moisture distribution; Drying modelling; Multicomponent drying; Drying selectivity; Volatile retention; Ternary mixture; Drying of particulate materials; Vibrated fluidised bed dryer; TECHNOLOGY Chemical engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : A mathematical model for the drying of particulate solids in a continuous vibrated fluidised bed dryer was developed and applied to the drying of grain wetted with a single liquid and porous particles containing multicomponent liquid mixtures. Simple equipment and material models were applied to describe the process. READ MORE

  3. 3. Particle Coating in a Wurster Type Bed

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Stina Karlsson; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Drying; Particle; Tracking technique; Spouted bed; Fluidisation; Multiphase flow; CFD; Trajectory; Coating; Wurster;

    Abstract : The Wurster bed process is frequently used for film coating. In the Wurster bed, particles circulate in the equipment and are sprayed with a liquid which forms a coating when dry. The procedure is repeated until the desired characteristics of the coating layer are obtained. READ MORE

  4. 4. Steam Drying of Porous Media

    University dissertation from Department of Chemical Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Jörgen Hager; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1998]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; transport coefficients; experimental; heat and mass transfer; sorption isobar; packed bed; porous particles; hybrid model; volume average; porous media; superheated steam; steam drying; Chemical technology and engineering; Kemiteknik och kemisk teknologi;

    Abstract : The present study concerns heat and mass transfer in porous media dried by superheated steam. Specifically, the steam drying process of a packed bed of porous particles was studied in order to obtain design data for a band drier. READ MORE
