Determination of flow conditions close to the produce.

Author(s) : LINKE M., GEYER M.


The objective of the present study is to maintain the quality of perishable horticultural produce by analysing and improving the environmental conditions close to the produce in postharvest. The basic idea is to separate produce properties describing the water status, and properties of the environment to get more detailed information about the different influences of mass transfer components. A non-destructive method to determine the flow conditions against and around the produce is presented characterized by a mass transfer coefficient.
