Abstract
How to build a corn dryer that is not weather dependent yet energy efficient? And how the characteristics of corn dryer?. This research objectives are: Design and develop a dehumidifier heat pump dryer for corn drying. Observing the characteristics of drying time, temperature and humidity of drying air and consumption of drying energy. This study consists of two stages. First, design and build a dehumidifier heat-pump dryer for corn and instrumentation to monitor the drying process parameters. Second, characterizing the process of drying the corn using a dehumidifier heat-pump dryer to build a knowledge base for the corn drying. The results of the study were concluded. The lower the speed setting of blower fan, the higher the air temperature of the dehumidifier heat pump dryer. The highest drying air temperature in this study was only 53C. The lower the evaporator temperature setting, the lower the drying air humidity. The lowest drying air humidity in this study reached 19%.
