Farmers in rural areas grapple with storing produce, leading to food waste during transportation. Due to unreliable electricity access, they face challenges with drying interruptions and temperature fluctuations. Some farmers opt for diesel-powered drying systems; however, these can be expensive to run. As a result, the dried produce lacks the desired quality, impacting its market value.
To address this, the Aagun® dryer offers a solution that operates continuously and off-grid. This innovative dryer ensures consistent, closed, and hygienic drying without relying on grid power or batteries.
Utilizing phase change material (PCM) technology, Aagun® captures solar energy during the day and utilizes thermal energy backup at night. This enables continuous operation with virtually zero operational costs, simultaneously enhancing the value and shelf life of the produce. Notably, Aagun® is effective even during the rainy season, providing a versatile solution for farmers facing unpredictable weather conditions.
