    efficient solar thermal collector should not feel hot to the touch. NTIS () suggests 1/3 to 1/2 cubic meters per minute ( to CFM) per cubic meter of dryer volume as being a good flow rate for solar dryers. Most designers of fossil fuel powered industrial food drying systems recommend considerably higher Size: KB. Solar Drying. Solar drying uses sun energy but is performed in a solar dryer designed and built for this purpose. Solar food dryer is built to dry food using solar energy. Sunlight enters an enclosed chamber (sun collector) where it strikes a dark surface converting its energy to heat. The heat dries the g: Africa.

Solar drying of fruit and vegetables For thousands of years people have sundried fruit and vegetables to preserve for leaner times. New technologies brought changed techniques, but at present the increasing demand for healthy, low-cost natural foods and the need for sustainable income, are bringing solar drying to the fore as a useful.
