Abstract

Garcinia Atroviridis which grows wildly in peninsular Malaysia are popular fruits in Southeast Asia and Northern states due to its economical and medical value. To preserve and increase economic value of the fruit, it usually dried or freeze. The paper discusses the experiment study of drying Garcinia Atroviridis using waste heat from condenser of a typical split air conditioner as a dryer. Test was conducted in a drying chamber housing the condensing unit, where the heat rejected by the condenser was used for drying the Garcinia Atroviridis. The experimental setup has been developed as an integrated air conditioner for drying purpose using waste heat from condenser. The study found that using waste heat from room air conditioner condenser for drying purpose is very reliable during raining day and efficient without additional electricity cost.
