Title: Response surface modelling and performance evaluation of solar dryer for drying of grapes

Description:

The current study focuses on the performance of Solar Greenhouse Dryer for drying of grapes for raisin making in Solar Dryer and Open sun condition in Western Maharashtra. The Maharashtra state ranks first in the production of grapes, probably Western Maharashtra produces nearly 800 thousand tons of grapes every year. The major wastage of grapes is due to low sugar content, glossy appearance, shrinkage, excess water in berry, scorching and size variation. Therefore, there is a need to preserve the grapes by drying and making raisins for a non-seasonal requirement. The experiment was conducted for drying of grapes in Solar Greenhouse Dryer and Open Sun condition from 1st of April to 4th of April for 48 hours. The initial weight of the grapes to be dried was 500 grams for both Solar Greenhouse Dryer and open sun drying conditions. The experiment was conducted at Bahe, Borgaon, Tal-Walwa, Dist- Sangli, Maharashtra, India located at 17.115o N and 74.33o E. The main aim of using DOE i.e., Response Surface Modelling is to get an optimum region for drying of grapes in Solar Greenhouse Dryer, from the Surface plot; the region of maxima and minima was obtained.
