Course Aims
The aim of this course is that products are stored for a long time without spoiling, one of the drying methods used to teach the concept. Determination of moisture content and requirement of drying air. Transport of air through the dryer, to be taken the moisture from the crop, made of all calculations in these stages.
Course Goals
To determine the amount of moisture in agricultural products, to determine the amount of drying air, to determine the amount of energy to heat the air, to select dryer type according to the products.
Learning Outcomes of The Course Unit
Know the relationship between agricultural products and moisture, Understands the properties of moisted air, Determines the properties of air using a psychrometric chart, Determines the energy required for drying air and heat, knows the relationship between the products and airflow , Knows the air resistances encountered of drying and ventilation systems., Makes the air ducts placed into the dryer system., Selects the dryer and drying methods according to the product., To dry different products such as cereals, vegetables, fruits, herbs., Select the dryer type according to selected methods.
Course Contents
The importance of drying of agricultural products, humidity measurements, equilibrium moisture content, relative humidity and relative humidity, concepts of equilibrium moisture. Product moisture detection methods, properties of moist air, through the air flow stack of products, shows resistance against the air flow of agricultural products, Drying methods and dryer types. Drying method and selection of the type of dryer.
