Sludge liming is largely used in the wastewater industry. This operation, at first realized to stabilize sludge, has also proved to enhance dewatering and to improve the resulting cakes texture. Nevertheless, almost nothing is known about the impact of lime addition on sludge drying behavior. As drying can be considered as a necessary step after mechanical dewatering, it is crucial to evaluate the influence of the sludge pre-treatments on their drying kinetics. This study shows that both pre- and post-liming exert a positive effect on sludge convective drying behavior. The negative impact of sludge destructuring by pumping is also established. [less ▲]

This paper deals with the moisture exchanges occurring between soils and the surrounding atmosphere. Convective drying tests are performed on Awans silts at different drying temperatures and air relative humidities in order to reproduce the natural drying conditions. The experiments improve the understanding of the vapour transfers kinetics between the soil samples and the atmosphere. The experimental results are analysed assuming that the transfers take place in a boundary layer existing at the surface of the porous medium. The influence of the thermal conditions on the evaporation is also taken into account. In our model, coupled vapour and energy exchanges are controlled by mass and heat transfer coefficients characterizing the boundary layer. These coefficients are determined from the drying experiments. The modelling of the drying tests in non-isothermal conditions is performed in order to validate the formulation of the vapour and heat exchanges. The numerical results present a good agreement with the kinetic of the materials desaturation determined during the tests. The analysis of the moisture transport mechanisms into the sample and at the boundary shows that at the beginning of the test, the drying is first achieved by the transport of moisture in its liquid form and its evaporation at the sample outer boundary in contact with the atmosphere. In a second step, vapour diffusion becomes predominant into the sample and it corresponds to the most important decrease of relative humidity. [less ▲]

Water desorption isotherms of resorcinol-formaldehyde (RF) hydrogels and subsequent water adsorption isotherms of the resulting xerogels are determined using the static gravimetric method, at various temperatures. Isotherms obtained from samples synthesized at various pH are compared. Two different mechanisms are involved in RF hydrogels water desorption. At large relative humidity the capillary tension resulting from water removal induces a macroscopic shrinkage of the gel, whereas at low humidity water is evaporated with no network deformation. These two mechanisms are analyzed using a plastic deformation model and the Guggenheim-Anderson-de Boer (GAB) model, respectively. Adsorption isotherms of RF xerogels are analyzed using the GAB model. [less ▲]

Some structural and hydrodynamic properties of RCM-NCX-1116, a Ni-Cr metallic foam packing manufactured by Recemat International B.V (The Netherlands) are investigated using X-ray radiography and X-ray micro-tomography. Local values of porosity and pore diameters are measured on a foam sample 3D image obtained with a Skyscan-1172 high-resolution desk-top micro-CT system operated at 100 kV. Structural parameters computed on tomography images agree well with manufacturer data. Hydrodynamic tests are performed in a flat rectangular column packed with a sheet of metallic foam packing. Measurements are realized with a single-phase flow of liquid as well as with a counter-current flow of gas and liquid. Dynamic and static liquid holdup distributions and liquid radial spreading coefficient are measured on 2D radiographic images of the bed obtained with the high energy large scale ULG 420 kV scanner operated in the radiographic mode at 420 kV. Pressure drop measurements are successfully compared to experimental results reported in literature, as well as to the literature model predictions and to values computed using an in-house Lattice Boltzmann CFD simulation code.
