Drying of agricultural produce in a greenhouse type solar dryer



Drying of agricultural produce in a greenhouse type solar dryer



International Agricultural Engineering Journal 9(3/4): 139-150



A study was conducted to characterize the drying process in a greenhouse type solar drier using either natural or forced ventilation. A 4 m high circular black polyethylene stack attached to the drier produced an air flow rate of 0.1 msuperscript 3/s in the experimental drier. A three-tier drying rack (1 mx1 mx2.5 m) was installed in the greenhouse type solar drier for multi-tiered drying of agricultural produce. Rewetted mustard was dried, both in the solar drier and in the open sun.
