The Solar cabinet dryer

Schematic of the external skeleton from the construction manual

The Solar cabinet dryer was designed by Bernhard Müller. A construction manual was created to make this technology available to all. The dryer is primarily suited for use in equatorial countries given the slope of the collector compartment.

Construction requires 6mm plywood, 2.5 by 2.5 cm wooden strips, glue, varnish, black paint, two hinges, trans- parent foil and screws. As built, the dryer should be stable in most conditions.

The Solar cabinet dryer construction manual includes numerous illustrations, along with clear assembly instructions and a complete list of required materials.
