It consists of a tunnel type semi-cylinderical drying chamber provided with windows to allow the ambient air to enter the dryer. An exhaust fan is provided to evacuate the moist air from the dryer. A sliding door is also provided to facilitate easy handling of the produce. Trolleys and trays (50 Nos.) are provided to hold one tonne chilli for drying.
