Abstract

Different drying techniques for drying agricultural products were reviewed in the study to develop a suitable dryer for drying sea cucumber as it is a high export value product gaining importance in the international markets now days. A conceptual prototype solar dryer for drying sea cucumber was designed which has its advantages over the traditional open sun drying methods such as reducing the loss due to damage caused by insects, birds, rodents and adverse climatic conditions. The drying period using the conceptual solar dryer is 1 -2 days whereas it takes 4 -14 days in the traditional open sun drying methods
