BSc, MInstR

Tim's work has been primarily related to heat and mass transfer and the interaction between product and equipment factors in food processing, including

  • development and optimisation of novel and improved thermal processes (refrigeration, freezing, thawing and cooking)
  • decontamination of foods (steam and organic acid application)
  • separation processes (e.g. cutting of meat, frozen fish, slicing of salmon etc.)
  • reducing energy use in refrigeration
  • air cycle refrigeration systems for combined cooking and low temperature freezing
  • secondary refrigeration systems for supermarkets
  • humidification of retail display cabinets and food store rooms
  • application of improved vacuum insulation to the food and food equipment industries
  • mathematical modelling of heat and mass transfer.
