Abstract

Application of tray dryer is widely used in agricultural drying because of its simple design and capability to dry products at high volume. However, the greatest drawback of the tray dryer is uneven drying because of poor airflow distribution in the drying chamber. Implementing the proper design of a tray dryer system may eliminate or reduce non-uniformity of drying and increases dryer efficiency. This paper discussed several design of tray dryer system for drying agricultural products and its performance. Most of the dryer systems have been developed are using solar energy because the systems run at low operating cost. Computational fluid dynamics simulation is a very useful tool in the optimization of the drying chamber configuration by predicting the airflow distribution and the temperature profile throughout the drying chamber.
