Title : Assessment of possibility of using microwaves for heating spouted bed during drying apples
Key words : spouted bed - microwave drying, apples, colour, compression strength, rehydration
Summary :

Results of drying apples in the form of a 10 mm cube with a combined method with spouted bed microwaves heating (FM) at the air drying temperature 60-65ºC and microwaves of 100W power were analysed. Drying kinetics of material and the selected quality features of dried apples were described: colour, compression strength and rehydration. Experimental results were referred to analogical effects of drying apples in the spouted bed (F) and with the use of microwaves heating at the reduced pressure (MV). It was found out that the process, where spouted bed drying and microwaves heating took place with greater intensity than spouted bed drying without additional heating and spouted- microwave dried apples were characterised with higher quality than the remaining dried apples.
