The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of meat fiber directions and air conditions on moisture and temperature developments, shrinkage, and effective diffusivity constants compared to homogenous minced meat samples. The lean meat with three fiber directions and minced meat samples were dried at temperatures of 48 and 70 degrees C and air flow rates of 0.5, 1.0, and 1.7m/s. The minced meat samples showed 1.0 +/- 0.19 to 4.4 +/- 0.03 degrees C higher temperature values and 2.3 +/- 0.004 to 6.2 +/- 0.003% lower moisture losses than the lean meat samples in all fiber directions. The lowest temperatures were observed in lean meat with h (1) (normal flow, normal drying) fiber direction. The highest moisture loss and diffusion coefficient were observed in lean meat with h (2) (parallel flow, normal drying) and v (normal flow, parallel drying) fiber directions, which also possessed the shortest drying times (10.4 and 13.4h, respectively). The estimated diffusion coefficient values ranged between 1.11x10(-9) and 5.54x10(-9). The results indicated that lean and minced meat samples differed in their drying behaviors in a tray dryer under the tested conditions with >90% reproducibility (or <= 10% coefficient of variation).


Feeding strategy development for benzaldehyde lyase production by recombinant escherichia coli bl21
Levent, Hande; Çalık, Pınar; Department of Chemical Engineering (2008)
This study focuses on the molasses based complex medium design for benzaldehyde lyase production by recombinant E. coli BL21 and development of a feeding strategy based on the designed complex medium. For this purpose, firstly, the effects of molasses were investigated in laboratory scale bioreactors. As E. coli BL21 was not able to utilize sucrose, molasses was pretreated and hydrolyzed to fructose and glucose. Thereafter, effect of pretreated molasses concentration was investigated in the range of 16 to 5...
Diesel Oil Degradation Potential of a Bacterium Inhabiting Petroleum Hydrocarbon Contaminated Surface Waters and Characterization of Its Emulsification Ability
Onur, Gozde; Yılmaz, Fadime; İçgen, Bülent (Wiley, 2015-07-01)
Degradation of poorly water soluble hydrocarbons, like n-alkanes and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons are challenged by some bacteria through emulsification of hydrocarbons by producing biosurfactants. In diesel oil bioremediation, diesel oil degrading and surfactant producing bacteria are used to eliminate these pollutants from contaminated waters. Therefore, identifying and characterizing bacteria capable of producing surfactant and degrading diesel oil are pivotal. In this study, bacteria isolated from h...
Optimization of supercritical carbon dioxide extraction of antioxidants from roasted wheat germ based on yield, total phenolic and tocopherol contents, and antioxidant activities of the extracts
Gelmez, Niluefer; Kincal, N. Suzan; Yener, Meryem Esra (Elsevier BV, 2009-04-01)
Effects of pressure (148-602 bar), temperature (40-60 degrees C) and time (10-60 min) on antioxidant (phenolics and tocopherols) contents and antioxiclant activities of supercritical carbon dioxide (SC-CO2) extracts of roasted wheat germ were determined, using central composite rotatable design. The dependent variables were yield (%), total phenolic contents (TPC, mg gallic acid equivalent (GAE)/g extract), total tocopherol contents (TTC, mg tocopherol/g extract) and antioxidant activities (AA, mg scavenged...

Selected operational conditions of activated sludge are investigated in relation to their effect on flocculation and dewatering. Semi-continuous reactors with 2 -L volume were operated at different mean cell residence times, C/N ratios, and three different influent cations. Results show that MCRT, C/N ratio, and the cation type affect the bioflocculation capacity of activated sludge measured by the quantity of extracellular polymeric substances. As the MCRT value operated in the reactors and the C/N ratio o...
Fouling behavior of microstructured hollow fibers in cross-flow filtrations: Critical flux determination and direct visual observation of particle deposition
Çulfaz Emecen, Pınar Zeynep; Wessling, M.; Lammertink, R.G.H. (Elsevier BV, 2011-04-15)
The fouling behavior of microstructured hollow fiber membranes was investigated in cross-flow filtrations of colloidal silica and yeast. In addition to the as-fabricated microstructured fibers, twisted fibers made by twisting the microstructured fibers around their own axes were tested and compared to round fibers. In silica filtrations, the three different fibers showed similar behavior and increasing Reynolds number increased the critical fluxes significantly. In yeast filtrations, the twisted fiber perfo...
