Yoghurt powder production using microwave–vacuum drier

In thin samples (3 to 5mm) drying rate is controlled by energy dissipation rate while in thick samples (3 to 4cm) drying rate is controlled by moisture diffusion and is therefore affected by system pressure as lower pressure causing faster drying due to higher pressure gradient (Cui et al 2004b) In general the slope of drying curves sharply increased for all pressure levels after few

Seven thin-layer mathematical models cited in the literature had been used for the study These models were applied for different trays placed in the dryer The result of the research and experimentation showed that the Page model fits best for drying in the steam-based dryer and open sun drying Experimental results showed 63 33% saving in drying time and the drying efficiency was found as
