Curing and storing sweet potatoes in a modified bulk tobacco kiln



Curing and storing sweet potatoes in a modified bulk tobacco kiln



Report, Agricultural Energy Centre, Ontario, Canada (88-5102): 27



A bulk tobacco kiln was modified to cure and store 11.4 t of sweet potatoes. The blower/burner unit of the kiln was not utilized. Instead, a 4.8 kW heater and a fan rated at 900 litres/s at 90 Pa were used for heat and aeration, resp. The insulation value of the kiln's roof was upgraded to prevent condensed moisture from dripping on the sweet potatoes during curing and storage.
