  • An investigation of milk powder deposition on parallel fins

    Walmsley, Timothy Gordon; Walmsley, Michael R.W.; Atkins, Martin John; Neale, James R. (2012-09-23)
    One method to reduce the energy consumption of industrial milk spray dryers is to recover waste heat from the exhaust dryer air. A significant challenge associated with this opportunity is the air contains a small amount ...
  • Analysis of skim milk powder deposition on stainless steel tubes in cross-flow

    Walmsley, Timothy Gordon; Walmsley, Michael R.W.; Atkins, Martin John; Neale, James R. (Elsevier, 2015)
    Particulate fouling on the gas side of heat recovery equipment is a common industrial problem. The aim of this study is to characterize the deposition of skim milk powder on a single bare tube in cross-flow. A custom built ...
  • Application of P-graph techniques for efficient use of wood processing residues in biorefineries

    Atkins, Martin John; Walmsley, Timothy Gordon; Ong, Benjamin H.Y.; Walmsley, Michael R.W.; Neale, James R. (AIDIC, 2016)
    It is anticipated that demand for chemicals and fuel derived from sustainably grown bio-mass will increase over the coming decades. Forest and wood processing residues and waste are likely to become a significant feedstock ...
  • Appropriate placement of vapour recompression in ultra-low energy industrial milk evaporation systems using Pinch Analysis

    Walmsley, Timothy Gordon; Atkins, Martin John; Walmsley, Michael R.W.; Neale, James R. (Elsevier, 2016)
    This study focuses on applying Pinch Analysis to an industrial milk evaporator case study to quantify the potential energy savings. Modern milk evaporators are typically integrated using both mechanical and thermal vapour ...
  • Approximation of non-linear cost functions in p-graph structures

    Ong, Benjamin H.Y.; Walmsley, Timothy Gordon; Atkins, Martin John; Walmsley, Michael R.W.; Neale, James R. (AIDIC, 2016)
    P-graph employs combinatorial and optimisation algorithms to solve process network synthesis (PNS) problem. However, the P-graph framework requires linear cost functions when optimising PNS problems. As a result, a high ...
