Using solar energy for lucerne hay drying with step-flow dryer



Using solar energy for lucerne hay drying with step-flow dryer



Conference on agricultural engineering Proceedings of a conference held at Hawkesbury, Richmond, NSW, Australia, 25-30 September 1988: 350-355



A method of drying lucerne hay from a high m.c. in a step-flow drier combined with a solar-supplemented heating system was investigated. A computer model was developed to simulate performance and the economics of drying in such a system.
