MICHALEWICZ, Jacek S; HENRIQUEZ, Jorge R  y  CHARAMBA, José C. Drying of Cashew (anacardium occidentale l. ): Experimental Study and Drying Kinetics Modeling . Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2011, vol.22, n.6, pp. 63-74. ISSN 0718-0764.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-07642011000600007.

The drying kinetics of sliced cashew ( anacardium occidentale l.) has been experimentally studied. Samples of 4, 7 and 10 x 10-3 m thick were used. A laboratory tray type dryer was employed and air at temperatures in the range 60 to 80 ° C and velocity from 3 to 5 m/s were imposed. The moisture content profile in the sample with respect to drying time was measured. Eleven mathematical models available in the literature were applied to determine which of the model is the best one in correlating the experimental data. The results indicate that the model of Page is the most adequate due to its simplicity for relating the moisture content and the variables temperature and drying air velocity.
