1. Mass transport mechanisms and module design aspects in the recovery of dilute volatile organic compounds by hydrophobic pervaporation
Sammanfattning : Hydrophobic pervaporation has gained a lot of attention as an alternative process for mild aroma recovery, but the real commercial applications of this process are still in their infancies. Better understanding of mass transport phenomena in composite pervaporation membranes is essential from the point of view of membrane manufacturing, while process simulation is an important tool for predicting pervaporation module performance.

Sammanfattning : In the present work a dynamic model library of components for process lines was developed. The analysis addressed characteristic aspects of liquid food process lines, and new models were developed for fluid transitions, dispersion, mixing zones and first-order chemical reactions in pipes and heat exchangers.

Sammanfattning : During production of concentrated fruit juices, both physical and chemical losses of aroma compounds occur due to heat treatment such as pasteurisation and evaporation. This leads to an inferior quality of the final product. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Turbine-agitated tanks are used in chemical and biochemical applications to increase mixing which, in turn, affects the yield, productivity and product quality. The purpose of this work was to study the hydrodynamic influence on the scale-up of turbine-agitated tanks, commonly used in fermentation. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Heat processing of vegetables involves the use of temperatures above the physiological limit which affect the cellular structures of the tissue and induce a series of events at cell level that will in turn be reflected in the transport properties of the tissue. One of the most important cellular structures from the mass transport point of view is the cell membrane since it represents the physical barrier to the transport of nutrients into and out of the cell.
