Crop products require good moisture content for successful storage. The drying process is mainly used for this purpose. For its successful design and implementation it is necessary to have information about the physical and mechanical properties of the material, including thermo physical characteristics. It is for the successful implementation of the process of post-harvest processing of pumpkin seeds were planned and conducted experimental studies.

Analysis of previous studies to determine the thermo physical characteristics of various materials, including plant products, showed that in most cases one series of experiments to determine three main indicators - heat capacity, thermal conductivity and thermal conductivity of products. Unfortunately, there is no universal method and installation for determining the required indicators, so in our research we used the original installation, the principle of which is based on the use of non-stationary heating patterns of two semi-bounded rods, where the source of heat is constant power.

The theoretical basis of the implemented method is the solution and analysis of the thermal equation with the corresponding boundary conditions. Intermediate equations were obtained from which the values of thermal conductivity and thermal conductivity for each series of experiments were found by the graph-analytical method of solution. The value of heat capacity of the material was determined from the well-known formula of the ratio of these three indicators. As a result of research and processing of the obtained data, the dependences of the thermo physical properties of the material on its humidity were determined, which are presented in graphical and analytical form. The obtained dependences confirmed the results of researches of some authors on the presence of inflection in the graph of thermal conductivity which is explained by the transition of moisture from free to bound state.

Keywords: pumpkin seeds, thermal conductivity, heat capacity, thermal conductivity, thermocouple.

History of journal:

In June 1994 the 2nd International Scientific and Technical Conference "Application of vibrations for technological purposes" was organized on the basis of Vinnytsia State Agricultural Institute. Leading experts in this field, noting the significant contribution to the school of Vibration Engineering under the leadership of P. S. Bernyk, proposed to create a professional all-Ukrainian scientific and technical journal "Vibration in engineering and technology..The journal was foundedat Vinnytsia State Agricultural Institute and P.S. Bernyk was elected to be the chief editor .
For all these years (since 1994) theJournal "vibration in engineering and technology" published  94 issues wherestudy of vibration effects, the creation of progressive energy saving technologies and equipment for their implementation were highlighted.
Currently Kaletnik H.M  PhD , professor, academician NAAS is the chief editor of the "Vibrations in engineering  and Technology"
The journal "Vibration in Engineering and technology", which has no analogues on the territory of Ukraine, is well known abroad.
