The effect of temperature, soil and surface type on cleaning performance was investigated using newly developed cleaning rig in which the flow characteristic of cleaning solution was a falling film generated by impinging jet. The most common types of foods in dish-washers (spinach, egg yolk, milk, potato puree, minced meat, black tea, and margarine) were studied as soils and the main materials used in household utensils such as stainless steel, glass, porcelain, and plastic were tested as cleaning surfaces. The physicochemical properties of food components and surfaces had a major role in the development of soil -soil associations and the soil-surface interfacial interactions. It was observed that the strength of those interactions was determinant factor of soil removal mechanism which could be resulted in either by cohesive failure or both adhesive and cohesive failure. Regardless of soil type, when the temperature increased, better cleaning scores were obtained since the cleaning solution easily penetrated into soil which led to swelling of soil and reducing interfacial forces. Cleaning performance of soils was modeled using the results of 140 experimental points in Response Surface Methodology (RSM). The optimum temperature was determined for all surface-soil combinations as 56 degrees C, at which the cleaning scores were the closest to the cleaning performance at 70 degrees C. Moreover, it was observed that the experimental results of the cleaning at the optimum temperature were similar or better than the values estimated with the model. This study would be useful to develop an understanding on governing factors of cleaning which can be used in opti-mization of the cleaning process for energy efficient dishwashers.(c) 2022 Institution of Chemical Engineers.

Utilization of some industrial wastes as abrasive in surface preparation processes
Ataman, N.; Oezbayoglu, G. (2007-06-08)
Abrasive blast cleaning involves mechanical cleaning by the continuous impact of abrasive particles at high velocities on to the substrate using compressed air. Materials from different origins can be used as a blasting media including coal slag, smelter slag, mineral abrasives, metallic abrasives, and synthetic abrasives.
Physical characterization of high methoxyl pectin and sunflower oil wax emulsions: A low-field H-1 NMR relaxometry study
Akkaya, Sinem; Özel, Barış; Öztop, Halil Mecit; YANIK, DERYA KOÇAK; GÖĞÜŞ, FAHRETTİN (Wiley, 2020-12-01)
Pectin-wax-based emulsion systems could be used to form edible films and coatings with desired water permeability characteristics. Pectin is often used in food industry due to its gelling and viscosity increasing properties. Physical properties of pectin are highly dependent on its esterification degree. Waxes are commonly used as edible coatings to enhance the water barrier properties of food products. This study focuses on preparing emulsions with sunflower oil wax (SFW) and high methoxyl pectin (HMP) at ...
Application of high dynamic microfluidization to improve some quality parameters and stability of orange juice
Yüce, Özlem; Mert, Behiç; Bayındırlı, Alev; Department of Food Engineering (2011)
The aim of current research is to analyze the effect of microfluidization on the stability and some quality characteristics of orange juice with respect to treatment pressure and cycle. Orange juice was microfluidized with four different pressures (34, 69, 103 and 138 MPa) and three different cycles (1, 2 and 3) at 18 ± 2 0C. Physical and chemical properties of microfluidized juices were compared with non-microfluidized freshly squeezed orange juice. Microfluidization made orange juice brighter and decrease...
Improvement of mechanical and flame retardancy properties of biocomposites based on low density polyethylene and polylactic acid
Altun, Yasemin; Bayramlı, Erdal; Doğan, Mehmet Onur; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2015)
The main objective of this study was to improve the mechanical and flame retardant properties of low density polyethylene (LDPE) and poly (lactic acid) (PLA) based biocomposites. Wood flour (WF) and jute fabric were used as the fillers. In the mechanical property improvement studies with LDPE, the effect of two compatibilizing agents MA (random terpolymer of ethylene, acrylic ester and maleic acid) and GMA (random terpolymer of ethylene, acrylic ester and glycidyl metacrylate) functionalized polymers at dif...
Influence of alcohols on citric acid production by Aspergillus niger A-9 entrapped in polyacrylamide gels
Yaykasli, KO; Demirel, G; Yasar, A (Elsevier BV, 2005-10-01)
In this study, the production of citric acid has been achieved by using Aspergillus niger conidiaspores, entrapped in polyacrylamide gels, and the factors that affect this production have been investigated. On citric acid production the effect of starting sucrose concentration (100-180 g/l), the initial nitrogen concentration (0-0.3 g/l), the effect of the methanol concentration in 100ml feeding medium (0-6 ml), and finally the effect of ethanol concentration (0-6 ml) in 100 ml feeding medium were studied a...
