Title:
Hybrid model of the fouling process in tubular heat exchangers for the dairy industry 
Abstract:
A simulation model of the fouling behaviour of an arbitrary heat treatment device for milk, instancing tubular heat exchangers, is described. The final target is to examine new processing technologies in order to lengthen the processing time between two cleaning cycles whilst maintaining product quality. For this purpose a hybrid model of the fouling process in tubular heat exchangers was developed, combining deterministic differential equations with cognitive elements. The model allows the calc...    »
