Hybrid Heat Pump + Solar Dryer

  3 HP Heat Pump / Solar Hybrid Food Drying System

This new system, developed by our SolarFlex fabrication partners at DryFree, combines the proven superior electrical heating efficiency of a heat pump with the solar air capability as a bonus. In addition to the two built-in solar air panels, a larger solar air heating array can be added to further expand the solar capacity and save more energy cost. In any case, the 3 HP heat pump provides enough drying power to dry up to 150 KG of wet food product per day, using 40 drying racks. Temperatures can be controlled up to 85C which is more than most foods require. This 220V system requires no installation services and is on sturdy castors to allow easy movement. This commercial hybrid unit is an excellent complement to the SolarFlex all-solar options developed by MM. Basic 3 HP system price is $5,900. Additional solar modules of 8 Sq. M with extra ducting and controls are approximately $1,900.
