Dried fruit and mushrooms can be very quickly harvested with an electric dryer made from old leaky pan. To collect it is not difficult, as the system consists entirely of prefabricated elements.
- old pot;
- rubber furniture feet – 4 PCs.;
- the 25 mm M4 screws with nuts – 8 PCs.;
- the fan from the computer;
- power supply 12 V;
- the power cable to the computer connector;
- reflective foil insulation;
- ventilation grille;
- a light socket E27;
- incandescent bulb 100W;
- a metal grid with small cells.
The manufacturing process of the dryer
As for the case of the dryer, you can use enamel bucket or a big old pot, suitable even for leaky. At its bottom it is necessary to make a perforation for ventilation. Holes are first drilled with a thin drill bit, then reams to 8 mm.
Also in the bottom of the pan about 2 cm from the edge is 4 holes that are screwed rubber furniture feet.
Next in the pot you need to make the supports under the shelves. For this purpose in its walls is drilled crosswise on a par 4 hole, then they are duplicated a little higher. In the holes the screws are inserted heads out and pressed nuts.
Staff cover the pan need to replace the plywood.
In the plywood must be cut to install a computer fan.
The side is cut a rectangular hole for the power connector. Then cover painted on the front side.
On the back of her pinned stationery buttons foil insulation.
In the cover from the side of the foil is screwed onto the fan from the computer. On the reverse side fixed power connector. Then tie fan closed ventilation grille.
Above the fan is fixed a light socket.
Side-attached 12V power supply.
Then soldering is performed. From the connector is routed 2 lines.
One to the power supply, the second to the light bulb. Then to the block attached to the fan. All wire connections need to be insulated, then close the power supply cover. The latter can be done from a tin.
Next, you need to deal with shelves for drying. They are made of metal mesh with a small cell. It should stretch to cut their plywood round the framework. The resulting pallets are stacked in the dryer and rely on protruding from its walls screws.
To use the dryer, you need to lay on its shelves sliced fruit or mushrooms, then turn the power on.
Incandescent lamp will provide a source of heat and the fan will accelerate evaporation due to blowing air.
As a result, the drying produce ten times faster than the natural way.
