Solar Dryer

A solar dryer is another application of solar energy, used immensely in the food and agriculture industry. The concept of a solar food dryer is simple: move warm air over thinly sliced food. The warmer the air, the more moisture it can remove from the food. However, you don’t want the air to move too quickly, as it will cause the temperature to decrease. Geetanjali’s design creates just enough air movement and warmth to dry food quickly. The food is laid out on trays, which sit behind a transparent polycarbonate sheet. Below the trays there’s a metal shelf, painted black, that serves as a heat absorber. As heated air rises through the food, cool air is drawn in through the bottom vent, and the heated, moisture-laden air flows out the exhaust at the top. This is a multi-functional solar dryer for both domestic and commercial use.
