This Paper attempts to study the variation of simulation and fabricated jet impingement dryer to define how to increase efficiency, temperature and best quality of the dryer. The jet impingement is helps to increase the overall temperature of the exhaust air. where increasing the temperature slightly and velocity ranges of drying time as been reduced. The experimental process has been carried in the copra.
From the CFD analysis end results establish the flow jet impingement processing on the absorber where a strong function of heat transfer enhancement. The present process concludes that the mass flow ranges of air as been influence the heat transfer rates. At solar radiation 500-1000 (W/M2), 348K ambient temperature and 0.048(Kg/S) mass flow ranges has been get at the end analysis.
Now a day the new model innovations are needed in solar dryer to fulfil the requirements of drying industrial and agricultural products. The new design process analysis and assumptions are very necessary to design any system. By comparison solar drying fulfil the requirements than sun drying processing. Under the such process and conditions Effect of mass flow ranges of air, solar radiation on exit air temperature, and efficiency has been analyzed.
