Ventilation cooling of bulk shipments of shelled southern peas


Transactions of the ASAE American Society of Agricultural Engineers 28(5): 1704-1708
Ventilation cooling of bulk shipments of shelled southern peas
Forced ventilation is a practical method for removing heat from bulk loads of some vegetable crops. Reduced temperatures are recommended for reducing rates of deterioration while field shelled southern peas are being loaded into trucks and delivered to processors. This study indicated that airflow rates of 0.037 (msuperscript 3s)/msuperscript 2 were adequate for removing the heat of respiration. Higher rates would be necessary in commercial shipments due to additional heat sources.
