Abstract :

In the work being presented, the performance of an indirect forced convection multi tray solar dryer for drying potato slices has been investigated. Active indirect, thin layer drying experiments were conducted on potato slices kept in multi tray cabinet dryer with PCM (Lauric acid) as energy storage system on 14/3/2014 and 24/3/2014 under Indian climatic conditions. The experimental setup consists of a flat plate solar collector with a blower and a drying cabinet with PCM kept in a chamber. The study was performed in the drying temperature ranging from300.2Kto332K and at 0.4 m/Sec air velocity. Seven common thin layer drying models were fitted to the experimental data and several statistical tools (R2, RMSE and SSE) were used to evaluate the performance of thin layer drying models. The two term model was the best fit model for describing forced convection drying behavior. Potato slices drying was found to take place during complete “falling drying rate period”. These findings are being presented in this paper.
