Tutorial on using the drying operation
Example - how to model drying with this flowchart editor / process simulator
Before you continue......you should have a basic understanding of the following:
Topic and recipe of example project
Purify sugar from it's impurities by clarification with activated carbon, and crystallization according to the following recipe:
Dissolve 80 kg crude sugar in 100 litres of water (on about 90°C), and clarify it with 5 kg of activated carbon. Then filter off the hot mixture. Cool down the filtrate (crystallization begins) and add 50 litres of ethanol to it (more sugar precipitates because of the weaker solubility in alcohol). Then filter the sugar crystals, and wash the filter cake with 10 litres ethanol.
Finally the wet, purified product is dryed in a dryer equipment.
Tip: try to follow this tutorial with the flowchart editor using example project: Sugar crystallization!
Drying: separate volatile components from solid material
Follow these principles during definition of composition of dry material:
