Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Technology for the Food Industry

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) has been successfully adapted to simulate the cooling (chilling), freezing and thermal processes in the food industry in order to provide a better understanding of the process mechanism and to provide guides for improving the design and operation of the equipment. The simulation results have been verified against data taken from our Food Refrigeration Laboratory which quips with state-of-the-art refrigeration research facilities including a vacuum cooler, an air blast freezer/chiller, a hydro/immersion cooler and a plate cooler.
