The aim of this study was to examine one of the mechanisms behind moisture migration caking, where liquid solution bridges form between particles in a bulk solid system because of an increase in local relative humidity, and then solidify as the local relative humidity drops - the effect being increased as more cycles occur. The goal was to develop a one-dimensional model for the heat and mass transfer processes involved, based on established physics and the characteristic moisture sorption curve of the solid (in this case sugar). The model was verified using scaled-down equipment (a caking box) to simulate the caking in a big bag. The results of this study will assist in the prediction of caking produced in this way.
