Abstract

A study was conducted to determine airflow resistance of cleanings removed from corn by screening and by aspiration. Cleanings were divided into fractions and then tested for airflow resistance in a 239-mm-diameter column. Coefficients for the modified Ergun equation were developed to predict airflow resistance of various sizes and size combinations of cleanings for airflows from 0.06 to 30.5 m^/m^ min.
