  • Radio frequency (RF) dielectric heating was tested to control Cryptolestes ferrungineus S. in the bulk wheat samples (ca.152g, dia. = 50mm, ht. = 100mm) at the MCs (%, w. b.) of 12, 15, and 18 using a pilot-scale RF heater (1.5kW, 27.12MHz) in the batch mode. When the temperature of the hottest spot (geometric center) of the sample, TH was at 80 - C, all the adult insects were found dead at the cold spots, near bottom-wall, at 50.7 to 56.0 - C depending up on the wheat MCs. The temperatures of… CONTINUE READING
