  • The aims of this study are to find out the possibility of the charcoal as a desiccant. The only humidity control under high temperature and high humidity environment can be provided to the thermal comfort at indoor environment. Functionality of charcoal is known to be deodorization, antiseptic effect, filtering effect and humidity control. But research related to humidity control in the country not yet. Thus, the dehumidification capacity of the charcoal experimental results to see the results were as follows : 1) Entering the experimental humidification is 148.02 g/h, 161.05 g/h and 243.2 g/h when air velocity was changed 1.5 m/s, 1.7 m/s and 2.0 m/s. 2) When the basis weight of the charcoal 2.0 m/s air velocity to obtain the largest number of adsorption capacity. 3) Dru bulb temperature and dew point temperature ware measured at front and rear of the charcoal. Absolute humidity is calculated from the measured Dry bulb temperature and dew point temperature. The quantity of dehumidification is calculated from absolute humidity is the largest 129.6 g/h at the air velocity 2.0 m/s.

  • In dehumidification evaporation cooling system. the regeneratie evaporative cooler(REC) makes an important role to reduce the sensible cooling load in the system through evaporative cooling, By this reason, many studies about increasing the cooling capacity of the REC were undertook. In this paper, we analyzed the cooling characteristics of the REC due to the structures of the REC and determined the best structure for the REC's effectiveness and cooling capacity. From the study. we could obtain some important results: at first. corrugated type has the benefit to expand the channel width of the REC, But because the type has some weak points about the size and weight. there is almost no benefit to improve the performance of the REC. Through these reasons. we decided that finned type is the best structure to improve the performance of the REC.

  • Kimchi cabbage is in demand all year, but there is an unbalance in its supply and demand due to climate reasons, requiring practical methods for extending storage without high cost. Therefore, this study aimed to assess available storage methods. 'Choongwang' Kimchi cabbages cultivated in Pyeongchang, Gangwon-do were on June 14 harvested and packed in plastic boxes. Control group was treated by loading four to five heads. Moisturized paper was applied as a liner inside the box to prevent dehumidification and damage to the cut root parts, and a small loading amount (three heads) was applied for better air circulation. Weight loss rates after 12 weeks of storage were 13.83% in the control group, 12.57% in the first group, and 13.38% in the second group. Trimming loss rates after 9 weeks of storage were 14.96% in the control group, 12.29% in the first group, and 12.55% in the second group. As a result of the sensory test, the control group lost its marketability after 6 weeks of storage, while the second group maintained it until 9 weeks and the first group maintained it until 12 weeks and scored higher than 6 points. Therefore, the tested methods were effective for extending the freshness of Kimchi.

  • This study was carried out to investigate the effect of air humidity and water content of medium on the growth and physiological disorder of paprika in summer hydroponics. Treatments were composed of air humidity of control (over 90%) and dehumidification (low 90%) and water content of 80% and 50%. Time domain reflectometry (TDR) sensors and dehumidifier were used in a drip irrigation system and control system of air humidity, respectively. The early growth of paprika was not affected by air humidity but increased by high water content (80%) of medium. Mean fruit weight was reduced at high air humidity and low water content (50%) of medium, but the fruit number per plant and yield were increased at low air humidity. The incidence of brown fruit stem increased with increasing air humidity and water content of medium. Rate of blossom end rot increased in the low water content medium compared with the high water content medium. The nitrogen (N) was higher content in brown fruit stem than normal stem, but calcium (Ca) was lower.

  • The effects of Kwamaegi on serum lipid profiles and ROS(reactive oxygen spices) generating and scavenging enzyme activities were investigated in rats. The three experimental groups were divided as follows: normal control diet group (NC), 5% naturally prepared and freeze-dried Kwamaegi supplemented diet group (NPK) and 5% chitosan-ascorbate treated and artificially dried (CWDD: Chilly Wind & Dehumidification Drier) Kwamaegi supplemented diets group (CAK). There were no significant differences in weight gain, feed intake, feed efficiency ratio or organs weights per body weight including liver, kidney, heart and spleen among the group. In addition, there were no significant differences in serum triglyceride and total cholesterol contents. The HDL-cholesterol contents of the NC, CAK and NPK groups were 62.00, 36.48 and 78.44 mg/dL while LDL-cholesterol contents were 62.00, 36.48 and 78.44 mg/dL, respectively, which were significantly different. The atherogenic indeces in the experimental groups were 0.62, 1.20 and 0.13, respectively. There were no significant differences in total XOD (xanthine oxidoreductase) activities; however XOD type O activity was higher in the NPK group than un the NC group and in the CAK group XOD type O activity was 21~45% lower compared to NC and NPK groups. SOD (superoxide dismutase) activity was significantly higher in the CAK group than in the NC and NPK groups, while there were no significantly differences in GST (glutathione S-transferrase) activity among the groups. Furthermore, serum ALT activity was higher in the NPK group versus the NC and CAK groups. GSH (glutathione) content was higher and LPO (lipid peroxide) content lower in the CAK group compared to the NC and NPK groups. Forem the above results, we suggest that CA treated and artificially dried Kwamaegi is not only a hygienic product but also has lowering effects on LDL-cholesterol and the atherogenic index together with the lowering of ROS-generating and increasing of ROS-scavenging enzyme activities compared to other natural products.
