AMTek Microwaves Lends Equipment for Research in Rice Drying, Processing
For years, rice in the US has been dried using natural air in-bin, and heated-air, high-temperature cross-flow drying systems. That may soon change. Researchers at the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture are testing the effects of AMTek microwave-dried rice to prevent cracking and maintain milling quality. If the results prove promising, this may cut down on breakage, which would increase milling yield. Researchers also see the potential for disinfestation and decontamination using this technology.
