heal.abstract Our study on the friction of Sultana and Corinth raisins indicates that there is a linear increase of the static and the kinetic friction force when the sample was loaded with added weights. An increase in the moisture content, up to 18%, reduces the friction of Sultana raisins, but increases that of Corinth raisins. For moistures larger than 30%, the friction of both types of raisins remains constant. Anti-sticking substances, reduce the friction but increase the stick-slip effect. The friction of raisins increases with sugar loss. The friction coefficients of raisins, sliding on Teflon-coated surfaces, are reduced by more than 30%, compared to PVC surfaces. © 1997 Elsevier Science Limited. All rights reserved. en
