Title:
Three-dimensional numerical investigation of the displacement of shear-thinning milk protein concentrates in spacer-filled channel 
Abstract:
Rinsing is an important part of the cleaning procedure applied to the spiral-wound membrane (SWM) modules in the dairy industry. In this work, we numerically investigated the displacement of non-Newtonian reconstituted milk protein concentrates in a feed spacer channel using OpenFOAM and compared the results with experimental data obtained in an SWM pilot plant. The model consists of the classical mass and momentum balance equations for an incompressible viscous mixture coupled with an advection...    »
