A cylindrical focusing solar food dryer made with aluminum-laminated acryl film was demonstrated for the dehydration of agricultural product and its perfomance was analyzed with respect to the solar energy utilization and its scale-up technology. With one square meter reflector and a 74 cm copper pipe absorber, the heat exchange efficiency between air stream and absorber was 1.39 %. The installation of circular segment-baffle increased 33 % of the efficiency. In dehydration of radish-cut with this drier, 58 % of fuel consumption was saved. The relationship between reflector area and heat energy utilization was established for the scale-up purpose.
