Optimization of drying ammonium tetramolybdate by microwave heating using response surface methodology

Optimization of drying ammonium tetramolybdate by microwave heating using response surface... AbstractThe process of microwave drying ammonium tetramolybdate is studied, and the process variables of drying time, drying temperature and material thickness are considered. Experiences of microwave drying ammonium tetramolybdate have been optimized using response surface methodology (RSM) technique and a CCD design. Effects of each factor and their interactions are researched, and a quadratic polynomial model for dehydration ratio is established. As can be seen from the ANOVA, the effects of the three process variables are found to be significant in the model, and the empirical model is fit and reliable to check the dehydration ratio of ammonium tetramolybdate. The optimum conditions for drying using microwave heating are found as follows: drying temperature 67°C, drying time 9.5 min and material thickness 15 mm. The optimum dehydration ratio is 79.82% and the last molybdenum content is not <56.3%, with the relatively error of 0.64%, which indicates the success of the process optimization experiments. This research has important significance to offer optimum conditions for industrial production. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Green Processing and Synthesis de Gruyter

Abstract

AbstractThe process of microwave drying ammonium tetramolybdate is studied, and the process variables of drying time, drying temperature and material thickness are considered. Experiences of microwave drying ammonium tetramolybdate have been optimized using response surface methodology (RSM) technique and a CCD design. Effects of each factor and their interactions are researched, and a quadratic polynomial model for dehydration ratio is established. As can be seen from the ANOVA, the effects of the three process variables are found to be significant in the model, and the empirical model is fit and reliable to check the dehydration ratio of ammonium tetramolybdate. The optimum conditions for drying using microwave heating are found as follows: drying temperature 67°C, drying time 9.5 min and material thickness 15 mm. The optimum dehydration ratio is 79.82% and the last molybdenum content is not <56.3%, with the relatively error of 0.64%, which indicates the success of the process optimization experiments. This research has important significance to offer optimum conditions for industrial production.
