Mathematical modelling of convective drying of fruits: A review
(Journal of Food Engineering, 2017-12-28)
The convective drying of fruits is the most implemented drying technique to stabilize fruits and to increase their shelf life. The mathematical modelling of drying is a useful tool in process optimization and dryer design. ...
Ultrasound as pretreatment to convective drying of Andean blackberry (Rubus glaucus Benth)
In this study, we evaluated the use of ultrasound as a pretreatment for convective drying of Andean blackberry (Rubus glaucus Benth). For this, a Box-Behnken experimental design was used to study the effect of ultrasound ...
Energy efficiency and drying kinetics of recycled paper pulp
(Taylor & Francis IncPhiladelphiaEUA, 2007)
Convective drying of foods
(CRC Press - Taylor & Francis Group, 2009)
Preserving food and agricultural products via air drying has been utilized worldwide for centuries. At present, there is still increasing demand for high-quality shelf-stable dried food products, especially fruits and ...
Influence of different drying methods on tbe rheological properties of raisins
(Isnt Tecnologico Veracruz, 2001-01-01)
The rheological parameters of raisins were obtained after three different drying methods: convective, osmo-convective and solar drying. Compression tests were applied to rehydrated samples by using a Texture Analyzer TAXT2i. ...

Effects of Pretreatments in Convective Dehydration of Rosehip (Rosa eglanteria)
He aim of this work was to experimentally determine drying curves for thin layer and bed drying of rosehip fruits, with and without pretreatments, to reduce processing times as a function of drying air operating variables, ...
Combined Infrared-Convective Drying of Murta (Ugni molinae Turcz) Berries: Kinetic Modeling and Quality Assessment
(Taylor & Francis, 2013-02)
Murta (Ugni molinae Turcz) berries were dried under convective and combined convective-infrared conditions at 40, 50 and 60°C and 400-800 W in order to determine the drying characteristics and to compare the dried product's ...
Adapting a Fourier pseudospectral method to Dirichlet boundary conditions for Rayleigh–Bénard convection
We present the adaptation to non–free boundary conditions of a pseudospectral method based on the (complex) Fourier transform. The method is applied to the numerical integration of the Oberbeck–Boussinesq equations in a ...
