  1. 1. Moisture calibration of an R.F based inline moisture sensor : An inline moisture sensor based on radio wave attenuation, Microtec M3 Scan, was calibrated to maximise correlation between real water content in wood and received signal

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Träteknik

    Author : Antonios Antoniadis; [2020]
    Keywords : Moisture; Sensor; Radio-waves; Inline; Non-contact; Calibration; Accuracy;

    Abstract : Sensors based on radio waves are used for inline moisture determination in the sawn wood industry. Placed at the final sorting line such a device can be invaluable, giving the operators real time information on the moisture content of the boards passing through. READ MORE

  2. 2. FILAMENT EXTRUSION USING RECYCLED MATERIALS : Experimental investigations on recycled Polylactic Acid (PLA) materials

    University essay from Högskolan i Halmstad/Rydberglaboratoriet för tillämpad naturvetenskap (RLAS)

    Author : Dennis Johnson; [2020]
    Keywords : 3D printing FDM ; Filament Extrusion; Recycled PLA.;

    Abstract : 3D printing or additive manufacturing is a process of building threedimensional solid object from a digital file. In additive processes, an object is formed by laying down successive layers of material until the object is created. The most commonly used materials for 3D printing are PLA (Polylactic Acid) and Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS). READ MORE

  3. 3. Kinetic Modelling of Fluidised Bed Drying of Enzyme Granules and Effect on Enzyme Stability

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Bioteknik (master)

    Author : Edvin Ingmarsson; [2019]
    Keywords : fluidised bed; drying; enzyme; stability; mathematical modelling; biotechnology; bioteknik; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : In the production of solid enzyme products, the granules are dried in a fluidised bed dryer prior to being coated with a protective salt coating. The coating exhibits a low mass diffusivity, which essentially encapsulates any present moisture inside. During the coating process moisture is inevitably added to the granules. READ MORE

  4. 4. Steaming of Wood Chips - Experimental determination of heating times and effect of different parameters

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH)

    Author : Henrik Broberg; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The presteaming of wood chips is an important step in the chemical pulping industry. It removes the air from within wood chips, allowing the cooking liquor to better impregnate wood chips, which leads to a more uniform cooking process, and lowers the amount of rejects. READ MORE

  5. 5. Enzymatic Modification of the Interaction Between Lignin and Recycled Cellulose Fibers

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiteknik (CI)

    Author : Manfred Klug; [2019]
    Keywords : Lignin; Pulp and Paper; Recycling; Biotechnology; Enzyme technology; Laccases; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The pulp and paper industry have been a growing market during the last decades. Due to higher environmental concerns among people, the recycling of papers has become an even more important part of the industry. Recycled paper fibers however are of lower quality than virgin fibers. READ MORE
