Energy Intensity Diagnostics Contributed to Solar Dryers Energy Challenges

Fateme Esmailie, Mohammad Aminy, and Hossein Ghadamian
Abstract—The energy consumption of dryers as an energy-intensive industry system is discussed in the present paper. In order to reduce this energy amount, solar dryers were applied since ancient times, among these kinds of dryers, high drying rate solar dryers include fluidized bed and spouted bed were discussed in this research study. The experiment and calculation results depicted that, the fluidized bed solar dryer has higher drying rate than spouted bed dryer, even though, spouted bed dryer has less energy intensity consumption.

Index Terms—Energy efficiency, fluidized bed, solar dryer, spouted bed.
