|Title: ||DESIGN,FABRICATION AND TESTING OF A SOLAR DRYER|
|Authors: ||UMAR, ALOOMA IDRIS|
|Issue Date: ||Mar-1994|
|Abstract: ||A solar dryer was designed, fabricated, and tested with tomatoes.
The tested-~ tomato samples were harvested directly from a farm
to reflect local farm conditions.
The collector was a flat-plate type while drying took place
in an experimental drying house. Tests were- carried out using
the solar dryer and open air-sun drying to compare both methods.
Results showed that the solar dryer evaporated an average
of 0.12grammes of water per grammes of tomato over that of open-air-sun
drying. With high temperature recorded at the drying house (above
54°c) it can be used to dry most of the agricultural products|
