Abstract
Drying experiments on a pilot scale air dryer in the temperature range 30oC?500oC and sorption isotherms at 25 and 50 of yam (D. rotundata, Dente) cuts were investigated. Drying empirical models were fitted to the experimental drying and sorption datas. The Henderson and Pabis model fitted well the experimental drying data while the GAB model fitted well the desorption data. The drying rate, showed strong relationship with temperature. By ignoring shrinkage effective moisture diffusivity ranged between 2.29x10-11 ? 6.65x10-11 while activation energy was recorded as 44.06 kJ/mol. Diffusivity was observed to be a function of temperature.
