The indirect solar dryer with forced convection (Figure 1) is used in this study It designed and realized by the LESEI laboratory 14 Figure 2 shows a photograph of this solar dryer It consists of mainly a solar air heater a centrifugal blower and drying chamber a Solar air heater (2x1m) with single pass and single glass cover

The airflow is driven entirely by natural convection without the assist of fans or blowers because of a trade-off between increasing performance with increased thermal storage mass and decreasing performance because of the inability of heat to pass through the wall A number of indirect passive solar system designs

•The gas goes through various cleanup and pipe-delivery processes to get to our stoves The heat transfer processes involved in these stages are generally less intense •The gas is burned in the stove Heat is transferred from the flame to the bottom of the teakettle While this process is small it

Energy Performance of Convective Dryers*

A flue with natural convection is used to balance the pressure in the system resulting from the ingress of combustion air at the burner The continuous re-circulation of the hot gases ensures a good efficiency Fresh air is only drawn into the system at the burner for combustion and this is balanced by the natural extraction through the burner

II THE PERFORMANCE OF HEATER Figure2 shows the schematic of indirect heater operation Natural gas should not be exposed to direct flame Thermal energy generated in burner is transferred to natural gas stream by a medium (water) indirectly This is the reason that this type of heaters called indirect heaters
