  • Minimising energy use in milk powder production using process integration techniques

    Atkins, Martin John; Walmsley, Michael R.W.; Walmsley, Timothy Gordon; Fodor, Zsófia; Neale, James R. (AIDIC Servizi S.r.l, 2012)
    Spray drying of milk powder is an energy intensive process and there remains a significant opportunity to reduce energy consumption by applying process integration principles. The ability to optimally integrate the drying ...
  • Optimal stream discharge temperatures for a dryer operation using a thermo-economic assessment

    Walmsley, Timothy Gordon; Walmsley, Michael R.W.; Atkins, Martin John; Fodor, Zsófia; Neale, James R. (2012-08-28)
    The application of traditional pinch analysis to processes involving waste streams require the discharge temperatures of the waste streams to be estimated prior to performing the pinch analysis.
  • Optimal waste stream discharge temperature selection for dryer operations using thermo-economic assessment

    Walmsley, Timothy Gordon; Walmsley, Michael R.W.; Atkins, Martin John; Fodor, Zsófia; Neale, James R. (AIDIC Servizi S.r.l, 2012)
    A typical drying process that has liquid and gas discharge streams has been analysed and the impact of selecting various combinations of soft temperatures on heat recovery, utility targets, area targets, capital cost and ...
  • Total site targeting with stream specific minimum temperature difference

    Fodor, Zsófia; Klemeš, Jiří Jaromir; Varbanov, Petar S.; Walmsley, Michael R.W.; Atkins, Martin John; Walmsley, Timothy Gordon (AIDIC Servizi S.r.l., 2012)
    The paper focuses on extending traditional Total Site Integration methodology to produce more meaningful utility and heat recovery targets for the process design. The traditional methodology leads to inadequate results due ...
