Mechanism in Drying

• Drying is governed by principles of
transport of heat and mass.

• It is a diffusional process in which the
transfer of moisture to the surrounding
medium takes place by the evaporation of
surface moisture

• And as soon as some of the surface
moisture vaporizes, more moisture is
transported from interior of the solid to its
surface.

Methods of Drying Spray Drying Freeze Drying Drum Drying • rapidly drying • freezing the • raw material with a material then ingredients are hot gas reducing the dried at • producing a surrounding relatively low dry powder pressure temperatures • frozen water over rotating. sublimate dire high-capacity ctly to gas drums .
