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
