Design of plastic container to maximize air flow through fruits and vegetables


, : Design of plastic container to maximize air flow through fruits and vegetables. ASAE/CSAE SCGR Annual International Meeting, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, 18-21 July, 1999: 13 pp.

The pressure drop of air circulating through horticultural produce as a function of the approaching velocity was measured for 25 fruits and vegetables. The effect of air gaps between the produce (porosity), produce placement within the package, openings on the package, and shapes of the package (straight versus tapered wall) were studied. Coefficients and models relating pressure drop to approaching air velocity were derived for each produce.

Similar studies were performed with suspensions of ca...

The present study describes the use of short columns to speed up LC-MS quantification in MS binding assays. The concept of MS binding assays follows closely the principle of traditional radioligand binding but uses MS for the quantification of bou...

Estrogen maintains normal function of basal forebrain (BF) cholinergic neurons and estrogen replacement therapy (ERT) has therefore been proposed as a therapy for Alzheimer's disease (AD). We provide evidence to support this hypothesis in an...
