  • TITLE: A Convective Thin Layer Drying Model with Shrinkage for Kent Mango Slices

    AUTHORS: Alfa Oumar Dissa, Hélène Desmorieux, Jean Koulidiati

    KEYWORDS: Convective Drying, Mango, Modelling, Thin Layer, Kinetic

    ABSTRACT: In this work, a model of convective drying of mango slices was developed and validated by experiments. This model was established by considering slices shrinkage in the energy and the mass balances during the thin layer drying. The drying kinetics and the temperature curves of the product were simulated using the model at various drying temperatures. The simulated curves were then compared to the experimental curves obtained using a convective dryer controlled in temperature and moisture. The results showed that the drying curves were suitably fitted by the thin layer drying model with a correlation coefficient r2 = 0.997. Thus, taking shrinkage into account, it is possible to predict more effectively the thin layer drying kinetics of mango slices. This study therefore contributed to the mango drying modelling and to the mango dryer setting.
