Abstract

  In order to use microwave cocoon drying method considering its merits for drying of Bombyx mori cocoon, three kinds of cocoons were selected. The results of cocoon testing and raw silk testing were compared with the hot-air drying method. It was found that further development by making a combination among the parameters, such as wavelength of microwave, power of microwave oven and radiation time, and introducing a auxiliary equipment for reducing drying unevenness were necessary in order to establish an efficient drying method which will dry up fresh cocoons within a short period of time.
