Sule Salisu | Oyejide Oluwayomi Joel | Akusu Onomine Murray "Design, Construction, and Simulation of a Solar Fish Dryer" Published in International Journal of Trend in Scientific Research and Development (ijtsrd), ISSN: 2456-6470, Volume-3 | Issue-2, February 2019, pp.239-244, URL: https://www.ijtsrd.com/papers/ijtsrd20299.pdf

The use of solar thermal systems in the agricultural sector to conserve vegetables, fruits, coffee, fish and other crops has proved to be practical, and economical feasible. Solar heating system to dry fish, food and other crops can improve the quality of the product, reducing wastage of food as a result of lack of proper preservation. Fish is traditional dry in Nigeria via smoking which is unhygienic. The traditional method of using wood fuel has negative impact on our eco-system. In this research work, design, construction and optimization of a solar fish dryer were carried out. The temperature of the inner surface of the glass (dryer) was determined as 94.8°C. The result obtained from the design of the drying chamber shown that an area of 0.12m2 is required for the system. Moreover, the area of the flat plate collector was obtained as 0.49m2. The temperature of the sun acting on the outer surface of the plane glass was obtained as 268.4°C while the effective heat gain is obtained as 0.115kw.
