  1. 1. Mircostructure and rheological properties of concentrated tomato suspensions during processing

    Author : Elena Bayod; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; rheology; microstructure; morphology; flocs; tomato paste; ketchup; fibre suspensions; viscoelastic properties; particle size distribution; time dependency; network; yield stress; wall slip; Mooney; Cox-Merz rule; Tikhonov; tube viscometer; rotational viscometer; homogenisation; shearing;

    Abstract : Food processing comprises operations such as dilution (changing the concentration), homogenisation (changing the particle size), and subsequent pumping (shearing), among others. It is thus of great interest to gain a better understanding of the mechanisms governing the creation and disruption of structures during these engineering operations, and the way in which they are related to the textural and rheological properties of the material.

  2. 2. Citrus Waste Biorefinery Process Development, Simulation and Economic Analysis

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Mohammad Pourbafrani; Högskolan i Borås.; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; citrus waste; biorefinery; ethanol; biogas; Bioteknik; process simulation; encapsulated yeast; Citrus wastes; economic analysis; computational fluid dynamic simulation; pectin; limonene; methane;

    Abstract : The production of ethanol and other sustainable products including methane, limonene and pectin from citrus wastes (CWs) was studied in the present thesis. In the first part of the work, the CWs were hydrolyzed using enzymes – pectinase, cellulase and β-glucosidase – and the hydrolyzate was fermented using encapsulated yeasts in the presence of the inhibitor compound ‘limonene’.

  3. 3. Fibre suspension flocculation under simulated forming conditions

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Fiber- och polymerteknologi

    Author : Huawei Yan; KTH.; [2004]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : A flow loop system for study of fibre flocculation insuspensions has been developed. The system is designed tosimulate the flow conditions in a paper machine headbox. It isequipped with a radial distributor feeding a step diffuser pipepackage, after which the flow is contracted in a 2-D nozzle. READ MORE

  4. 4. Fibre flow mechanisms

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Roger Bergström; KTH.; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Fibre flow; floc; shear; compression; fibre network; stress chain; TECHNOLOGY Chemical engineering Chemical process and manufacturing engineering Cellulose and paper engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Kemiteknik Kemisk process- och produktionsteknik Cellulosa- och pappersteknik;

    Abstract : The flow behaviour, and primarily the floc-floc interaction, of pulp paper suspensions have been studied visually. Analogy models based on these observations have been developed as well as the identification of important parameters of floc break-up in low shear rate flow fields. READ MORE

  5. 5. Disperson and Flocculation in a Dry Mat-Forming Process

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Robert Rundqvist; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The absorption cores in disposable nappies, incontinence pads and female hygiene products are manufactured by a dry mat-forming process. Cellulose fibers and super-absorbing particles are suspended in air and blown onto a forming wheel on which the cores are formed. READ MORE
