Abstract

Soybeans have been dried in batches up to 0. 6-m. deep using drying air temperature of 50 and 65 degree C and air flow rates of 0. 102 and 0. 203 m**3/s multiplied by (times) m**2. The occurrence and extent of drying damage at different depths in the dryer were investigated. Results indicate that position in the bed is the most significant factor affecting the drying damage in a deep-bed soybean dryer. Significant effects are also produced by initial moisture content, air flow rate and drying air temperature.
