Chimney Solar Dryer Manual
The UC Davis chimney solar dryer was designed to provide efficient drying even in hazy or partially cloudy conditions. Constructing the dryer is simple, and it can be built from low-cost materials found locally in markets and shops around the world. The objective of this manual is to provide the knowledge needed to build and use the chimney solar dryer, along with the basic principles of using the sun to dry fruits, vegetables and other foods. This manual will be useful for growers, farmer cooperatives, trainers, development implementers, researchers, and others.
