Abstract: This paper evaluates efficiency of air heater and discusses system modifications carried out in air heater used in one of the tea units. Field trials indicate that these driers are operating at very low efficiency due to age-old design and improper selection of materials. Operational system changes have improved performance of heater and firewood consumption has dropped to about 100 kg/h from 160 kg/h resulting in a saving (38%) with little or no investment.
