The effect of dryer air temperature on fineness modulus and moisture content of cassava flour in pneumatic dryer process
Agricultural Engineering Department, Faculty of Agriculture, Musamus University, Merauke - Indonesia
One of drying method applied in flour milling industry is pneumatic drying. Various kinds of variable both dried materials and drying process condition strongly influence the quality of drying result. Fineness Modulus (FM) and Water Rate are significant variables in defining the flour quality. The aim of this study is to identify the influence of dryer air temperature on FM and Moisture Content in pneumatic dryer process condition. Both variables have sufficiently big coefficient of determination value; therefore, it can be employed to predict well the fineness modulus and water rate of the flour.
Key words: Cassava flour / Pneumatic drying / Fineness Modulus / Moisture Content
