Solar heat pump drying and water heating in the tropics ...

May 01, 2006  As drying and water heating are low temperature energy intensive processes, use of conventional energy sources may not be a desirable choice due to the factors mentioned previously. The present study involves a solar dryer and water heater, where the solar energy is collected by solar collectors and transferred to either air or refrigerant.

Solar drying - ScienceDirect

Aug 01, 2011  Passive solar dryers. Direct or passive drying of crops is still in common practice in many Mediterranean, tropical and subtropical regions especially in Africa and Asia or in small agricultural communities. Passive solar dryers are “hot box” units where the product in the hot box is exposed to the solar radiation through a transparent cover.
