Design and construction of a solar drying system a cylindrical section and analysis of the performance of the thermal drying system By Ahmed Abed Gatea Abstract In this work a solar drying system of a cylindrical section which consists of a solar collector flat plate drying chamber cylindrical section and a fan was built and designed for the purpose of drying 70 kg of bean crop And

solar dryer according to their heating modes and the man-ner in which the solar heat is utilized namely forced air circulation or active solar dryers and natural air circula-tion or passive solar dryers Three distinct sub-classes of either the active or passive solar drying system can be identified depending upon the design or working

Solar drying system has three types of drying modes: direct indirect and mixed-mode In the direct mode dryer the product is directly exposed to solar radiation This type of dryer mainly consists of a drying chamber that has a transparent glass or plastic cover Biomass product is placed on a perforated tray to be heated rather directly 8 In the indirect mode the product is not directly

Although the solar air collector is a very important component in the solar drying system much attention has not been drawn to it during dryer design In principle the performance of the solar dryer depends on several operating conditions such as the climatic condition collector orientation the thickness of the cover material wind speed length and depth of the collector and the type of
