The article considers a modern method to decontaminate dried fruits from the molds of storage by the electromagnetic field of microwave radiation. The research is based on the active planning of the technological experiment. The experiments were carried out three times. In order to show a dependence on the contamination of dried fruits on time and heating rate, we construct regression equations. Also, we represent by diagram an influence of the electromagnetic field of microwave radiation on various fungus of dried fruits. Effective modes of decontamination were found. This research was conducted within the framework of the “Industry 4.0” concept with the use of modern technologies and equipment. The results of the research can be introduced into the food production in order to improve the efficiency and achieve a new product quality.
