The dielectric properties of moist materials depend strongly on free water content. Moisture content may be conveniently sensed using microwaves, provided that calibration data is available. One… (More)
There is a demand in the dairy industry for instruments which can provide real-time information about the moisture content of cheese during manufacture. This paper describes progress in the… (More)
[Abstract]: The material properties of greatest importance in microwave processing of a dielectric are the complex relative permittivity e = e′- je″, and the loss tangent, tan δ = e″/ e′. The real… (More)
During cheese manufacture the moisture content of the curd must be carefully controlled. Curd moisture is usually measured by weighing and drying, which is a time consuming process. This paper… (More)
[Abstract]: The dielectric constant, e′, dielectric loss, e″, and loss tangent, tan δ, of some commonly used thermoplastics have been measured at various temperatures and frequencies. They do give… (More)
There is a need in the dairy industry for instrumentation capable of providing on-line information about the moisture content of cheese during manufacture. Present measurement techniques are usually… (More)
