Recently, scientists from Nha Trang University have successfully researched and fabricated the solar-driven dryer combined with a heat pump for drying seafood.

This dryer developed by Nha Trang University is a convection dryer which uses a heat pump to separate moisture, then uses the radiation heat from solar energy and/or the heat from the outdoor unit for drying seafood materials such as fish, shrimp, squid, etc. Currently, the dryer has been produced to serve the training of thermal cooling technology, seafood processing technology, and food technology as well as serving the needs of seafood processing factories and people.
