Abstract

Tray dryer is the most extensively use for kenaf core drying because of its simple and economic design. The product is spread out on trays at an acceptable thickness so that the product can be dried uniformly. Most tray dryers use hot air stream where water is vaporized from the product and removed by air stream. In a tray dryer, more products can be loaded as the trays are arranged at different levels. The drawback of this dryer is non-uniformity in the desired moisture content of end product. The key to the successful operation of the tray dryer is uniform airflow distribution over the trays. Therefore, the good design of the drying chamber configuration in a tray dryer is necessary to obtain optimum performance. This research is to design the uniform airflow distribution throughout the drying chamber using CFD simulation for kenaf core drying. Several configurations of drying chamber and trays position was designed and simulated to determine the tray dryer which can produce better airflow distribution. It was found that the design B gives a more uniform airflow distribution compared to others design. The good design of kenaf core dryer should be able to produce uniform drying at high drying capacity and shorter drying time.
