Abstract

Agro-commodities are most commonly dried in open air. For easy usage, low cost dryer in clear and rainy day was the need by many farmers. Present study was intended to study, fabricate and test the solar dryer for drying fruits and vegetables. A model was designed for drying chillies and potatoes by direct solar energy in line with auxiliary drying chamber. Proposed method of drying is comparatively fast and clean. Dried chilli and potatoes may be directly used. Performance analysis is carried out for the developed model, results were satisfactory.

Keywords: Solar dryer, agriculture products, solar dryer, absorber plate, toughened glass, baffles, exhaust pipe, drying cabinet
