Design, Development And Performance Analysis Of A Solar Dryer For Fruit/Vegetable Chips

About The Project:-

In this experiment the performance of solar dryer with a flat plate absorber plate is modified through trapezoidal obstacles is compared with a simple absorber plate in North eastern climate conditions in India. The parameters for the experiment are Tilt angles and the mass flow rates of the air. In general, there are three types of solar drying technologies: direct solar drying, indirect solar drying, and mixed mode solar drying. When solar energy is used properly, solar dryers are the equipment used to dry products. Movement of air in the dryer is used to categorise solar dryers. The majority of agricultural products have greater moisture levels, ranging from 25 to 80 percent, although typically only about 70 percent. This moisture content value exceeds what is needed for long-term preservation by a significant amount. Bacterial and fungi grow quickly in crops as a result of high moisture content. Foods that have been spoiled by bacteria and enzymes have less nutrients in them. Crop moisture content, up to a particular point, reduces the impact of bacteria, enzymes, and yeast. In order to preserve food for a long time, it is therefore required to lower the moisture level.
