The purpose of the study was to determine the effects of different temperatures (40, 50 and 60 degrees C) and air velocities (1 and 2 m/s) on shrinkage, porosity, pore size distribution, color and microstructure of orange peel. Empirical models were also proposed to predict shrinkage and porosity as a function of moisture. A strong negative correlation was determined between moisture and shrinkage. Air temperature had no significant impact on the final shrinkage and porosity values. During drying, porosity of the samples first increased until a critical value, at which point further decrease in moisture resulted in collapse of pores. The porosity of the orange peel was correlated with moisture by a third- order polynomial. Pore size distribution curve of raw sample showed two major peaks, a wider and a sharper peak at around 19.8 and 7.18 mu m, respectively. After drying, the peaks became shorter and the curve shifted to the left, indicating that the amount of pores and their diameter decreased. The SEM analysis revealed that at extreme process conditions, the orange peel surface was cracked and the characteristic distribution of the waxy components was obstructed.


Effects of Bentonite Combinations and Gelatin on the Rheological Behaviour of Bentonite – Apple Juice Dispersions
Dik, Tunay; Özilgen, Mustafa (Elsevier BV, 1996-11)
Rheological behaviour of bentonite – apple juice suspensions were experimentally determined at 25°C, within the shear rate range of 4.3 to 43.1 s−1with 0.90, 1.33 and 2.66 g/L bentonite mixtures and 0 to 0.25 g/L (on dry basis) gelatin concentrations. The mixtures consisted of 100%, 80%, 60%, 40% 20% and 0% Ca-bentonite and balance Na-bentonite combinations. The experimental data were described with the power law as τ =Kγ.1.56. The consistency index was related to the calcium, sodium and gelatin concentrati...
Effect of high hydrostatic pressure and temperature on carrot peroxidase inactivation
Soysal, C; Soylemez, Z; Bozoglu, F (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2004-01-01)
The combined effects of pressure and temperature on the activity of carrot peroxidase (POD) were investigated in the pressure range 0.1-600 MPa and the temperature range 25-45degreesC. At lower pressures (<396 MPa), carrot POD stability increased compared to unpressurized samples. Inactivation of 91% was obtained at 600 MPa and 45degreesC. High hydrostatic pressure (HHP) combined with temperature treatment enhanced the inactivation of carrot POD. Regeneration of POD activity with the combined HHP and temper...

The main objective of this study was to determine the effects of feed temperature (30, 40, 50 degrees C), concentration (50, 100, 150 ppm), composition (different strawberry model solutions) and permeate pressure (4, 8 mbar) on recovery of strawberry aroma compounds by pervaporation. Pervaporation was performed using a hydrophobic membrane, PERVAP 1070 (PDMS). As the feed temperature increased or downstream pressure decreased, the mass flux and selectivity increased in pervaporation of methyl butyrate (MTB)...

Ozkal, SG; Yener, Meryem Esra; Salgin, U; Mehmetoglu, U (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2005-01-01)
Response Surface Methodology was used to determine the effects of solvent flow rate (1, 3 and 5 g/ min), pressure (300, 375 and 450 bar) and temperature (40, 50 and 60 degreesC) on hazelnut oil yield in supercritical carbon dioxide (SC-CO2). Oil yield was represented by a second order response surface equation (R-2 = 0.997) using Box-Bhenken design of experiments. Oil yield increased with increasing SC-CO2 flow rate, pressure and temperature. The maximum oil yield was predicted from the response surface equ...

A general dynamic mathematical model was developed to predict the effect of can arrangement geometry on temperature distribution within cans in still retorts. For this purpose, the temperature variation in the cans was recorded for various can arrangements. Also, the influence of the physical properties of the material and the mechanism of heat transfer for heat penetration were studied. Experiments were carried out with water, peas in brine and tomato paste in no. 3 cans in an experimental vertical stil...
