spherical material, covering the sphere, mixture film, mass transfer.


With modern world trends in the growth of consumption of products of various industries and the environmental situation, the problem of rational use of energy and raw materials in industrial production in order to obtain the maximum amount of finished product of a given quality. An important step in solving this problem is to create an adequate mathematical model of the process. A simplified model of the process of dehydration of the aqueous solution film on the surface of a single granule in the production of multilayer composites in a granulator dryer has been developed.

Simulation of pellet dehydration includes analysis of heat distribution in a spherical material and in a film of liquid (heat exchange) covering the sphere, and the process of evaporation of the mixture film (mass transfer), which take place simultaneously.

The results can be applied at the stages of design and testing of the granulator.
