These parameters are substituted into (9), (10), and (11), then the shrinkage ratio is 14.6% and has little difference with the value of 13% presented earlier.
The main objectives of the current study are to evaluate the effect of HWB on the drying characteristics and product qualities of apple slices dried with the NIFD process, including mass loss and frozen temperature of apple samples at the end of freezing treatment, freezing time, freeze-drying time, rehydration ratio (RR), shrinkage ratio (SR), Vitamin C ([V.sub.C]) content, color, texture, and microstructure of FD apple slice.
The hardening time for Up is at least 3 hours at room temperature to ensure that hardening process is complete, to decrease the shrinkage ratio and to increase the cross linking among the molecules of the substance.
Rehydration ratio, shrinkage ratio and total colour change were determined in these differently dried samples.
The final reading with no further change in height was recorded to calculate the linear shrinkage ratio, [[delta].sub.sh], using
The shrinkage ratio was then calculated by the ratio of the initial length divided by the shrunk length.
Processing yields averaged 28.9%, and the average shrinkage ratio was 27.3%.
The shrinkage ratio is the ratio of the volume of dry membrane to that of wet membrane.
The shrinkage ratio was defined as ([L.sub.0] - [L)/[L.sub.0], where [l.sub.0] and L were sample length before and after shrinkage measurements, respectively.
The shrinkage ratio of CM/EVA foam declined all the time with the increase of EVA as shown in Fig.
Shrinkage ratio is defined as ([L.sub.0]-L)/[L.sub.0], where [L.sub.0] is the sample length along the stretching direction before heat treatment, and L is the length of the heat treated membrane at 24 h after it was detached from the stainless steel plate.
