Drying is a mass transfer process consisting of the removal of water or another solvent by evaporation from solid, semi-solid or liquid. Clothes drying are an easy and daily work can be done in open places naturally where the sun is available. However, naturally drying is difficult to achieve by certain places where seasonal rains continuing profusely and for a high level commendation in high building. The objectives for the current project are to investigate the possibility of using original dryer cupboard for drying process and to consider the overall cost, energy consumption and compare with others conventional dryer that are available today. The current project consisting the designing process, fabrication and experimental work related to heat generation inside metallic cupboard. The structure of the current project consisting Galvanized metal which is 1m × 0.5m × 2m with aid of gas stove to generate heat inside the cupboard, and a weight balance to determine the weight of clothes before and after drying process. Area that are use to conduct the experiment is a closed space for a specified time period. A clothes drying rate is measured through the time it takes to dry the clothes, clothes weight and temperature inside metallic cupboard. The results achieved in this study have shown that the original dryer model can dry a cotton clothes in only 20 minutes with a maximum gas flow rate of 0.000096kg /s. Meanwhile, the jeans were only takes 1 hour 05 minutes with a maximum rate of gas flow. Data have been obtained from this project has shown that the project is suitable for drying clothes in a short time without damaging the fabric of the clothing, cost-effective compared to other conventional dryers that are available today and the clothes has been dried can be use immediately.
