中文摘要

A novel patented solar energy-assisted photocatalytic closedtype
dryer (SEPCD) was developed to produce dried agro-foods
without using chemical additives for antisepsis and/or color retention
and to retain higher nutritive value of the fresh produce. The
SEPCD was designed to simulate open sun drying with moving
dry air and mild temperature. The air temperature in the drying
cabinet is maintained at 40–45C; it is supplied partially by a dehumidification
system and partially by a solar energy system.
Additionally, the inside of the cabinet was coated with titanium
dioxide (TiO2) to cause a bactericidal effect during the drying process.
Results showed that the total mold and bacterial counts for the
drying cabinet and dried pineapple slices are significantly reduced in
the SEPCD while the dried food quality is also better than that
dried by conventional hot air drying.
