Steps for construction of Domestic Solar Dryers


A domestic dryer uses solar energy to dry fruits and vegetables. Solar energy is a non-conventional source of energy. So we can use an unlimited source of energy from the sun as the main drying agent.

Domestic dryers are used to eliminate the moisture content from crops, vegetables, and fruits. The solar dryer consists of a box made up of easily available and cheap materials like cement, galvanized iron, brick, and plywood. The top surface of the dryer is covered by transparent single and double-layered sheets. The inside surface is coloured black to absorb the incoming solar radiation. Since the box is insulated, the inside temperature of the box is raised. The air is ventilated through the small holes at the top of the box.
