Abstract:
An automated computer-controlled pecan feeder, singulation, and conveying system with a parallel-plate sensor for impedance measurements on single in-shell pecans in stationary contact was developed under a joint research project between engineers in Israel and in the United States. An inexpensive electronic RF impedance-measuring unit was developed and tested under on-line conditions. The electronic unit was calibrated to provide kernel moisture contents in individual pecans with standard errors of 1.1% m.c. (moisture content), as compared with moisture contents determined by a vacuum-oven reference method. The prototype automatic conveyor and moisture sensing system was capable of measuring moisture content of individual pecans at rates of up to three per second.
