ABSTRACT
The shrinkage of malt bed during drying was determined experimentally from an initial moisture content of about 42% (w/w). Air temperature and air flow rate during the experiments were 50°C and 0.60 kg m–2s–l, respectively. It was found that the dependence of shrinkage on moisture reduction during drying can be described by a nonlinear equation for moisture reduction of about 34.5% (w/w).
