Shelf number: 000561.
"Watermelon seeds, the pulp removed, are placed on the big dryer, another Simpson designed contraption which pumps 42,500 cubic feet of air per minute through the bags of seeds at a temperature of 110 degrees. The bags are placed close together on the screen and chinks are stuffed with cloths to prevent needless loss of air and pressure."
