- ... In the present study, artificial neural network (ANN) method was applied for predicting osmotic pretreatment based on the energy and exergy analyses in microwave drying of orange slices. For this purpose, the oranges were cut into slices with a thickness of 4 mm and treated with salt (NaCl) and distilled water solution (7% by weight) for 30, 60, and 90 min as osmosis pre-treatment. Then, they were ...
