Ahmad, Siti Saziah (1990) Artificial drying of cocoa beams using a tray dryer / Siti Saziah Ahmad. [Student Project] (Unpublished)


Cocoa is our fourth major comodity crops. The development of agriculture technology has been improved the variety of cocoa and increased production. It is available for commercial planting because the time taken for cocoa ' to be mature and suitable to harvest is shotter and the quality is better. Perak, Selangor and Sabah are the three major states which produce cocoa beans for Malaysia. Research on the artificial drying of cocoa beans using hot air flow rate technique which uses tray dryer is done to determine the drying rate of cocoa beans and this is for helping the smal1 holders to dry their cocoa beans when the weather is not allowed to dry the beans under the sun. From the results of this reseach, we are able to find out that in the artificial drying of cocoa beans, the temperature and the hot air flow rate must have a certain limit or optimum conditions so that the beans will dry quickly without affecting the beans, also to prevent the development of moulds and to avoid the beans to be very brittle before they are marketed.
