Volume two of a five-volume handbook that provides a comprehensive overview of all important aspects of modern drying technology, presenting high-level, cutting-edge results.Volume 2 comprises modern experimental techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging for measurement and visualisation of moisture profiles in the interior of porous bodies during drying, Raman spectroscopy for measurement of concentration profiles during the drying of thin films/coatings and analytical methods for measurement of drying kinetics. Other modern experimental techniques covered include sorption equilibria and moisture content of individual particles, techniques for the determination of important quality indices - functional and structural properties - of dried products and instrumentation of modern drying equipment and respective plants.
