The simulation of batch type open cycle heat pump dryer has been performed to study the system performances and food quality using promising low GWP refrigerants (R290, R600a, R32, R152a and R1234yf) as a substitute of R134a for carrot and banana drying. The experimentation with heat pump dryer test facility using R134a has been performed for model validation. Effects of drying time and material m ...
