The best way to dry food is with horizontal airflow because it allows the hot fresh air to sweep across the top and bottom “boundary layers” of the food where most moisture can be removed. The design uses small DC fans, powered by a PV panel / battery, along with an efficient solar air collector . The SolarFlex allows tilting of the air collector, and the ability to swivel the whole dryer, to allow the sun to be tracked.
