Water shrink factor for drying shelled corn to various moisture content (MC) levels. The water shrink factor is a constant for a final moisture content

100 ÷ (100 - final MC)

Final moisture content (MC) of the corn grain= 13.5% 100 ÷ (100 - 13.5) = 100 ÷ 86.5 = 1.15606936416185 Water shrink factor = 1.156 %

What can you do with a water shrink factor? Corn weighs 100000 lbs @ 22% MC final MC = 13.5% Water shrink factor for 13.5% MC = 1.156 % Calculate the weight loss percentage; 22 - 13.5 = 8.5 8.5 * 1.156 = 9.826 The loss in weight due to water shrink = 9.826% 9.826 ÷ 100 = 0.09826 100000 * 0.09826 = 9826 the loss in pounds = 9826 lbs The weight of the corn @ 13.5% MC = 100000 - 9826 = 90174lbs
