The deep bed drying characteristics of toria (Brassica campistris var. toria) seeds were studied by considering the deep bed as a series of thin layers. The effect of various operating variables (drying air velocity temperature and initial moisture content of seeds) on the moisture ratio was assessed. The air velocity was measured in terms of m s-’ (m of bed height)- ’ to account for any variation in bed height. All the experimental data from 27 runs were fitted to a single equation by multiple regression analysis. The deep bed model permits the calculation of drying time for any final moisture ratio, or the calculation of the moisture ratio after a given drying time.
