Equilibrium Relative Humidity-Equilibrium Moisture Content Isotherms of Oil Palm Kernels
Ibrahim, Mohamad Hakimi and Wan Daud, Wan Ramli and Ismail, Mohd Shihabuddin and Meor Talib, Meor Zainal (1997) Equilibrium Relative Humidity-Equilibrium Moisture Content Isotherms of Oil Palm Kernels. Pertanika Journal of Science & Technology, 5 (1). pp. 1-6. ISSN 0128-7680
Equilibrium relative humidity-equilibrium moisture content (ERH-EMC) or moisture isotherms of solids is important in the drying, solid mixing, packaging and storage of such material. ERH-EMC isotherms of oil palm kernels are determined by using a constant environmental chamber for several combination of air relative humidity (30-90%) and temperature (30-70°C). The isotherms are found to fit the Hasley and Henderson equations well.
