Project Description

Spray drying is a process where the slurry converted into powder form. It is widely used in different industries. For example, In food industry it is used to produce milk powder, coffee and starch. In pharmaceutical industries, it used to produce antibiotics and different other ingredients. In detergent industry, it is used to produce washing powder.

The aim of this project is to improve the properties of the granules by changing the process parameters such as inlet gas temperature, liquid flowrate and drying gas feed rate. Based on the results, the project also aim to build a model that describe the drying process and how it is been affected by different process parameters.

During the course of the project, the student will be trained on different techniques that used to produce and to analyse the particles, ribbon and the granules.

The candidate will be invited to the 9th International Granulation Conference in Switzerland. In addition, the student will be encouraged to attend different conferences of powder technology both inside and outside UK.

The student will receive training on different equipment that used different techniques to produce and to analyse the powder particles.

Many industries are using powder as a raw material, intermediate and final products so it is essential to have somebody with knowledge in powder technology.

In addition to the training that will be given to the student, the candidate will be also integrated into a group of researchers and other students. Also will have access to communicate with experienced people in industry and this will give the student the experience of performing the research in an industrial environment.

Funding Notes

Candidates should have a first class or upper second class degree in chemical engineering, control engineering, mathematics, material science, chemistry, or a related discipline.

If English is not your first language then you must have International English Language Testing Service (IELTS) average of 6.5 or above with at least 6.0 in each component.
