  • Automated retrofit of heat exchanger networks

    Lal, Nathan S. (The University of Waikato, 2020)
    In a large industrial processing plant, a significant amount of process heat is generated using fossil fuels, contributing to New Zealand’s overall greenhouse gas emissions. While New Zealand’s renewable energy sources ...
  • Unified Total Site Heat Integration: Targeting, Optimisation and Network Design

    Tarighaleslami, Amir Hossein (The University of Waikato, 2018)
    Process industries in New Zealand use 214.3 PJ of process heat, of which approximately 65 % is fossil fuels. Despite increasing energy demands, depleting fossil fuel resources, and pressure to reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions, ...
  • Heat Integrated Milk Powder Production

    Walmsley, Timothy Gordon (University of Waikato, 2014)
    Dairy processing is critical to New Zealand’s (NZ) economy producing NZ$13 billion in exports for 2012 while consuming 32 PJ of fossil fuels for process heat. Three quarters of NZ dairy exports are milk powders. This thesis ...
  • Ultrasonic Air Leak Detection: An Investigation to Improve Accuracy of Leak Rate Estimation

    Wolstencroft, Hamish Roger (The University of Waikato, 2008)
    A compressed air test rig was designed to develop new procedures and improve the reliability of results that are obtained when conducting a leak survey using an Ultrasonic leak detector such as the UE Systems Ultraprobe. A ...
  • Experimental and Numerical Investigations of Skim Milk Powder Stickiness and Deposition Mechanisms

    Zhao, SongXin (University of Waikato, 2009)
    The particle gun method and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modelling was used to study stickiness and deposition mechanisms of skim milk powder in an impingement jet hitting a stainless steel plate. The particular focus ...
