|Comparative Study of Solar and Sun Drying of Fish in Ecuator (NRI)|
|Section 1 - Equipment and methods|
Three natural-convection solar dryers were constructed and operated, and their performance compared with that of two sun-drying methods. Each of these are described in turn. In order to ensure similar loading and to simplify comparison of performance, drying racks or trays of approximately equivalent dimensions (1.8 m X 0.6 m) were built within each of the solar dryers.
