This work uses a combination of two magnetic resonance imaging techniques to produce quantitative 1-D water profiles showing the in situ drying of a single drop of an industrial surfactant based mixture, which is used during the manufacture of detergent powders by spray drying. The determination of the local water content during such drop drying is useful in terms of identifying drying behaviour and kinetics, and for the validation and improvement of drop drying models which ultimately could be… CONTINUE READING
