Abstract: Objectives: Equipment sizing and method of utilizing exhaust gas waste heat for food crops drying are presented. Methods/findings: The sizing of the components of the equipment was achieved using known design principles. The system uses an axial flow turbine and a heat exchanger to harness the energy of the exhaust gas of a diesel engine generator. A 250 kVA generator with measured exhaust gas flow rate and temperature of 44.5 m 3 /min and 382.7 °C was selected for this work. The purpose of the recovered energ…
