Development of a Moisture Measuring Device for Cassava Particulate during Drying

Abstract:

Article Preview

A moisture-measuring device for the determination of percentage moisture content of cassava particulate on dry basis during drying process was developed used to investigate the effect of pressure on the resistance of the cassava particulate sample. A thermo-gravimetric sample analysis was used for the calibration of the moisture measuring device. The device had four electrode cups, two of which were used as dummies to give a ½ Wheatstone bridge circuit used to measure the resistance. The resistance of the cassava samples increases with decrease in the %moisture content and decreases with increase in pressure.
