PERANCANGAN DAN REALISASI SISTEM PENGERING BUAH APEL MENGGUNAKAN LAMPU INFRAMERAH

Abstract


Drying is a way to remove water from a material with thermal energy from natural sources (sunlight) or
unnatural sources (drier). The water contained in the material should be reduced to the level which microbes
cannot grow up. Traditional fruit drying process usually lasts for 2-3 weeks under the sunlight. This device is
designed to replace heat from sunlight so it can dry fruit on unfavorable weather conditions such as night,
cloudy, and raining. The purpose of this project is to make an apple dryer system using infrared heaters for
households. It also can read the temperature, control output voltage, and estimate the time needed to dry the
apples. Apples dryer system is testing the output of lamp timer module. After receiving input from the
temperature sensing modules, the processing module regulator ordered the lights to dim the lights to lower the
temperature to avoid overheating. The design of this dryer system able to perform drying apples. Hot on the
dryer system relies on a given output voltage. The higher the output voltage can provide the heat generated by
the infrared heater. Dryer systems can dry the apples by the time desired by the user.
