The goal of our project was to improve the operations of a low-cost heat pump fruit dryer for developing countries and facilitate its transfer to new locations. To accomplish this goal, we designed an analytical tool consisting of relevant questions to evaluate technology transfer processes. After administering the questions through interviews with stakeholders, we built a modified version of the dryer and created a user manual for its construction and operation to bring greater autonomy to communities during future expansions.
