Energy and exergy-based performances of a natural-convective solar dryer (NCSDR) integrated with sodium sulfate decahydrate (Na2SO4·10H2O) and sodium chloride (NaCl) as thermal storage medium are presented. The NCSDR was operational in Nigerian climate and applied for red chilli. The objectives of this study were to evaluate the thermal storage potential of Na2SO4·10H2O and NaCl with focus on energy consumption and exergy-sustainability indicators. The performances were compared to control… CONTINUE READING
