Abstract

In this paper a mixed mode dryer has been designed and developed by using the available materials in the market. Comparison between the natural convection and the forced convection solar dryer were studied to the solar collector area of 0.4 m2 and the dryer area of 0.2 m2 for the collector efficiency, dryer efficiency, moisture loss and time of drying. 80% moisture of fresh grapes was reduced to 15% for dry grapes with an average global radiation of 850w/m2. The average temperature of the collector and dryer chamber were noted for Nitte climatic condition.

Key Words

Mixed Mode Solar Dryer, Air heater, Drying chamber, Moisture Loss, Dryer and Collector Efficiency.
