SunScreens for Solar Food Dryers
The SunScreen food screens are ideal for solar food dryer applications because they have the following great features:
SunScreens are flexible enough to be installed in aluminum frames just like window screens, or fastened across any other type of frame system. Screens can be easily cut to desired size with ordinary scissors or a razor knife.
The black color enhances the performance of directly-heated solar dryers (like the SunWorks SFD) and provides the UV protection necessary for extended life in exposed outdoor conditions. The dark color of these screens absorbs more solar energy resulting in more heat and faster drying for all directly-heated solar dryers. The colorant is a widely-used, non-toxic carbon black coloring commonly used in newsprint, India inks, cosmetics and tattoos. No other chemicals or additives are used in these screens.
SunScreens are manufactured in the USA.
Size: All screens are shipped in sheets cut to approximately 32" by 84". This is enough for three large screens (two SunWorks dryer screens, plus an extra).
