Design and fabrication of an auger type applicator for 50-ohm technology based inline RF disinfestation of stored grains

Authors: Macana, Roland Jampit; Moirangthem, Tolen Tumbong; Baik, Oon-Doo
Description: Radio frequency disinfestation is an alternative method for the current disinfestation of stored grains using fumigants and pesticides. The advantages of this method are volumetric, fast, and chemical free. However, the non-uniform heating of the system that makes the insect pests migrate to the cold spot is a major challenge for RF heating assisted disinfestation. Some studies suggested that the insect pest
