Importance of Food Solar Dryers

Food dehydration is an easy and less expensive method of preserving food that might otherwise go bad.

Drying eliminates moisture, which stops fermentation and the formation of mold.

Additionally, it slows the natural chemical alterations that occur in food, for example when fruits ripen. Grains, veggies, and fruit surplus can be dried, preserved and kept for further use.

Greenhouse Solar Dryers

The shape and structure are like a greenhouse but has shelves inside for holding food products to dry. We always use greenhouse polyethene sheet to cover the solar dryer structure.

Polythene material is a proper heat insulator and retains maximum heat that dries food. At the same time, it is waterproof and transparent to allow sunlight to penetrate.

How Our Dryers Work

The air that circulates over the food in a solar dryer is heated by the sun’s radiation.

Heat causes the relative humidity in the air to decrease and increases its ability to store moisture. Moisture that evaporates from the food’s surfaces exits through ventilation, as hot dry carries it outside.
