Thermocouples were positioned at similar locations in the peanut mass in two typical flat-type-metal building peanut warehouses, one mechanically ventilated and the other naturally ventilated. Temperatures were recorded 12 times daily for each location during a 9-month storage period. Temperature profiles were constructed for selected times throughout storage. Generally, the isotherms composing the profiles were similarly shaped for like periods. The mechanically ventilated warehouse maintained a mean temperature of 1 to 4 C less than the naturally ventilated warehouse throughout most of the storage period.
