Example text

A large condenser surface area must be provided if it is not to be defrosted during a drying cycle. One arrangement for defrosting is to have two condensers working in parallel. The condensers are located in separate chambers. both of which are connected to the drying chamber. At any one point in time, one of the condensers is being defrosted while the other is operating normally. The roles are reversed periodically throughout the drying cycle. The use of scraped surface condensers to remove the ice formed, or adsorption systems in which the water vapour is taken up by glycerol or glycol, have been investigated.

16). The drum may dip into a trough containing the feed material (a). The contents of the trough may need to be continuously stirred. The feed effectively boils on to the drum surface. For feeds prone to frothing, this method may not be satisfactory, as the film formed may not be uniform. The feed in the trough may reach too high a temperature. This last effect can be reduced by using a shallow trough and continuously supplying it with cold feed. then transferred to the drum surface by a second roller (b).

Only the complete unsteady-state analysis can yield the true optimal control policy (Mellor, 1978; Liapis, 1987). See also Freeze drying, Spray drying. 2.
