Mixedmode TYPE

Mixed-mode, natural circulation, solar energy dryers combine the features of the integral-type and the distributed-type natural circulation solar energy dryers.

Distributed Type Solar Energy Dryer

In this case, the combined action of solar radiation incident directly on the product to be dried and the air heated in a solar air collector provide the necessary heat required for the drying process. A mixed-mode, natural circulation solar energy dryer has the same structural characteristics as the distributed type, i.e., a solar air heater, a separate drying chamber, and a chimney; in addition, the drying chamber walls are glazed so that the solar radiation can reach the product directly as in the integral-type dryers, as shown in Figure 7.16.
