Abstract


In this study, samples of shrimps were dried in a convective tunnel dryer at 60oC, 70oC and 80oC. Moisture kinetics was investigated and fitted into various models based on Fick's second law of diffusion. Logarithmic model had the best fit for the drying condition and effective moisture diffusivity increased as drying temperature increased. The activation energy was found to be 33.851kJ/mol.

Author Keywords: Drying Kinetics, Shrimps.
