Using air to convey mechanically harvested peppers



Using air to convey mechanically harvested peppers



Transactions of the ASAE 33(1): 47-50



Multiple-slotted conveyors mounted on a mechanical harvester utilized moving air to convey several pepper types. Unlike mechanical conveyors, the design permitted variable conveyor widths. The air velocities required to convey peppers continuously ranged from 30 to 38 m/s requiring 4.4 and 5.8 kW, resp., for jalapenos and green bells. No single physical property of the peppers was found that could be used to predict terminal velocity or air velocity needed for effective conveyance.
