Influence of atmospheric sublimation and evaporation on the heat pump fluid bed drying of bovine intestines
Senadeera, Wijitha, Alves-Filho, Odilio, & Eikevik, Trygve (2012) Influence of atmospheric sublimation and evaporation on the heat pump fluid bed drying of bovine intestines. Drying Technology, 30(14), pp. 1583-1591.
Experiments on atmospheric two-stage fluidized bed drying of bovine intestines with heat pump were carried out. The investigation covers innovative fluidized bed heat pump drying of bovine intestines. The two-stage drying consists of atmospheric moisture sublimation immediately followed by evaporation. Studies were done to establish the influence of the drying condition on the drying characteristics and product quality of bovine intestines and properties focusing on kinetics, diffusion, and color. The investigation of the drying characteristics has been conducted during moisture removal by evaporation and combined sublimation and evaporation. The effect of drying temperature on the drying constants was determined by fitting the experimental data using regression analysis techniques. The investigation revealed that the drying kinetics is most significantly affected by temperature. Correlations expressing the drying constants and effective moisture diffusivity dependence on the drying conditions are reported.
