Abstract
This paper presents the construction and performance evaluation of a solar dryer. The objective of this work is to study the performance analysis of solar dryer system with and without Tono Therm m-65 PCM. In this heated air from a separate solar collector is passed through a food tray, and the drying cabinet absorbs solar energy directly through glass roof. an indirect type natural and forced convection solar dryer integrated with PCM has been developed and tested its performance for drying food products under the meteorological conditions of Solapur, India. The performance analysis of a solar dryer system with and without PCM is done for drying grapes. The inclusion of PCM increases the drying time after sunset by 3 hours per day. The forced convection with PCM is more efficient, more suitable for reducing drying time, increasing drying rate, and produces high quality dried grapes. The results obtained that temperatures inside dryer and solar collector were much higher than outside air temperature during most hours of the daylight.
