Moisture transfer in blended long-grain rough rice

, : Moisture transfer in blended long-grain rough rice. Transactions of the ASAE 37(1): 195-201

Moisture transfer in mixtures of low- and high-moisture content (MC) rough rice (ranging from 9.5 to 18.0% w.b.) was investigated with a single-kernel moisture tester over a period of 30 days. The intergranular air attained constant relative humidity corresponding to the mean MC of the mixture within a few minutes of mixing. About 90% of the change in the MC of low- and high-MC kernels occurred within first one or two days of mixing even though moisture exchange continued over a period of 30 days. Changes in standard deviation (SD) of MC of the mixture with time, when normalized as a SD ratio, were similar to simulated changes in MCs of low- and high-MC fractions relative to their mean MC. The developed relationships can be used to estimate the MC variation with time in low- and high-MC fractions of mixed rough rice.
