Progress on the solar dehydrator

March 2015: Work on the solar dehydrator has been progressing well, and it is nearly complete, lacking merely the top surface of the solar tube.

Roof construction. This is designed to allow air to escape but not too quickly, and to prevent water from getting in. It is also a transportable component which is fitted on site.Fitting the Solar Tube -  this sits tidily in the chassis and connects to the hopper below the drying chamber.
Inserting the black plastic tubes. They are on a small aluminium subframe so they can be easily transported or lifted out/in.The front doors are drop-down work surfaces, with chains to keep them level. The light aluminium stool is high enough for safe maintenance of the trays in the upper chamber.
