Title: Modelling sugar crystallization including morphology quantification
Issue Date: 2004
Abstract: An image analysis technique developed by the authors allows the quantificationof the morphology of sugar crystals, namely its agglomeration degree. In this work,this technique is used to validate a model for sugar crystallisation in a laboratorybatch crystalliser. The validation data includes the on-line measurements of the sugarcontents in the solution and the system temperature. The distributions of the crystalpopulation size and of the degree of agglomeration are used as final validation data.The model considers crystal growth, nucleation and agglomeration.
