CIFT has developed different models and capacities of Solar Dryers for hygienic dying of fish. Designs of solar dryer vary from very simple direct dryers to more complex hybrid designs. The hybrid model Solar Dryers are having LPG, Biogas, Biomass or Electricity as alternate back up heating source for continuous hygienic drying of fish even under unfavourable weather conditions. The capacity of these hybrid solar dryers varies from 6 sq.m to 110 sq.m tray spreading area for drying fish (capacity 10kg to 500kg).
Solar Dryer with LPG back-up
Designed and developed a novel system for drying fish using renewable solar energy supported by environment friendly LPG back up. In sunny days fish will be dried using solar energy and when solar radiation is not sufficient during cloudy/ rainy days, LPG back up heating system will be automatically actuated to supplement the heat requirement. Thus continuous drying is possible in this system without spoilage of the highly perishable commodity to obtain a good quality dried product. PLC system can be incorporated for automatic control of temperature, humidity and drying time.
