Kopernik's solar dryer (K-dryer) uses solar energy to dry agricultural produce. The solar dryer works like an enormous toaster oven powered by the sun. Agricultural produce drys faster in this controlled environment and is safe from contamination and the weather. The dryer also works through the night using heat energy stored in its battery.
If the temperature inside the solar dryer is too high, the fan will automatically turn on to regulate the temperature.
