INFLUENCE OF THERMAL DIFFUSION ON KINETICS OF OSCILLATING IR DRYING

The relative thermal diffusion coefficient δt was calculated from the obtained moisture sorption isotherm for the seeds of onions. It allowed estimating the contribution of thermal diffusion with respect to the flow of mass conductivity in the considered version of the oscillating IR drying, and it turned out to be 5%. Hence, the thermal diffusion can be ignored for engineering calculations of the kinetics of the oscillating IR drying.

Key words: infrared drying, seeds, sorption isotherm, thermal diffusion, mass conductivity
