Bangladesh sooler dryer

Solar drying of Mushroom was conducted to investigate the performance of the solar tunnel dryer for drying mushrooms. The dryer consists of a transparent UV stabilized plastic covered flat plate collector and drying tunnel unit. The drier is arranged to supply hot air directly into the drying tunnel using three dc fans powered by a 40 watt solar module. The products to be dried are placed in a single layer on a wire mesh in the drying tunnel to receive energy from both hot air supplied from the collector and from the incident solar radiation on products. As the fans are powered by a solar module, the drier could be used in rural areas where there is no supply of electricity from grid. - text taken from paper
