    The sand took 66 h saving 62 % of drying time whereas rock-bed took only 53 h thereby saving 69 % of drying time compared to open sun drying. The efficiency of the dryer was found to be , 11 and % using concrete, sand and rock-bed . Bulk of farm products need to be preserved because of their perishable nature. The cheapest and environmental friendly means is indirect usage of solar irradiance to reduce the moisture content of these products to a level that cannot sustain the activities of micro-organisms. The research on solar collector has gained its popularity over the years due to mans quest for green energy Cited by: 2.

      Introduction. Drying is an indispensable process in many food industries and in many agricultural countries, the large quantities of food products are dried to improve shelf life, reduce packaging cost, lower shipping weights, enhance appearance, encapsulate original flavour and maintain nutritional value (Chou and Chua ).The primary objective of drying is to . Also worth noting is the reliance of many large-scale sun-drying operations on additional equipment and/or construction of buildings designed to optimize the drying process. In these cases, it might be more accurate to use the term "solar assisted drying" or "solar-based drying" rather than the simple description of "sun dried.".

    Building insulation materials are the building materials, which form the thermal envelope of a building or otherwise reduce heat transfer.. Insulation may be categorized by its composition (natural or synthetic materials), form (batts, blankets, loose-fill, spray foam, and panels), structural contribution (insulating concrete forms, structured panels, and straw bales), functional mode. This book includes solar energy, wind energy, hybrid systems, biofuels, energy management and efficiency, optimization of renewable energy systems and much more. Subsequently, the book presents the physical and technical principles of promising ways of utilizing renewable energies.

Grain drying begins in the field after the grain is fully mature. The primary objective of grain drying and storage is to manage the temperature and moisture of the air around the grain to. It was shown that there is an optimum daily time and temperature of drying, initial moisture content and mass of grain to be dried per day for most of combinations of drying conditions.

It was used since the dawn of mankind mainly for food preservation but also for drying other useful materials as cloths, construction materials, etc.

The first installation for drying by solar energy was found in South France and is dated at about BC. This e-book entitled “Solar drying: Fundamentals, Applications and Innovations”, is the latest addition to the current collection of this unique e-book series, is a joint effort initiated between the Centre of Food and Bio-product Processing, University of Nottingham, Malaysia Campus and the Transport Phenomena (TPR) Group, National.

Abstract - Food grain disinfestations has an ever growing demand, owing to the damage of food grains that happen during grain handling and storage. In this project, a Solar assisted food grain disinfestations system is proposed, where food grains are dried with a combined effect of direct Solar drying and Hot air drying.

Abstract For grain in-store drying, a solar assisted drying process has been developed, which consists of a set including a solar-assisted heat pump, a ventilation system, a grain stirrer, this way, low power consumption, short cycle time and water content uniformity can be achieved in comparison with the conventional by:   For grain in-store drying, a solar assisted drying process has been developed, which consists of a set including a solar-assisted heat pump, a ventilation system, a grain stirrer, etc.

In this way, low power consumption, short cycle time and water content uniformity can be achieved in comparison with the conventional by: A grain-drying solar-assisted system is composed of a solar collector, a fan, an additional energy source for air heating, a plenum (for air distribution) and a bin batch drying system.

Flat-plate collectors are used in air and water heating systems. The incident solar energy is partially absorbed by a dark and opaque surface, part of.

Jonathan Guest – furniture designer and maker. © Jonathan Guest Furniture Solar food drying is a form of solar food processing which uses airflow and solar energy to dehydrate food for consumption and storage. Solar food dryers can be constructed much like solar cookers, except that instead of sealing in the hot air, a flow of air into and out of the box must be maintained in order to move the moisture evaporated from the food out to the.

Active solar-energy drying system (most of which are often termed hybrid solar dryer). The efficiency of the solar collector is 22%, and the rock storage system stores kWh 1 to enhance drying. Tiwari et al.

It has been estimated that the world population will increase from the present value of 4 billion to 7 billion by the year It is also estimated that about to million people do not have enough food to eat now and this number is likely to increase with the increase in population, There are obviously two direct ways solving the problem: (1) increase the food production by Cited by: 4.This solar food dryer design is a scale down version of the solar tunnel food dryer developed at Hohenheim University, Stuttgart, Germany (www.
