The project aims to devise a means of producing a gasified smokeless drying oven which is an effective heating system that offers a hygienic preservation method. The oven comprises an air vent at the top, an outside galvanized steel wall, an inside galvanized steel wall, hinges, a door handle, a door made of galvanized steel, baking trays made from aluminum steel, an insulator made of mineral wool/fiber, and stands made of iron pipe, burner pad, 6kg gas cylinder, valve gauge. Upon the completion of the oven, the oven was designed with an outer dimension of 4650x600x1800(mm), a height made of galvanized steel and an inner dimension of 110x 80x 40(mm) of galvanized steel and there is a fiber in between the frame to prevent heat lost. The oven was constructed using locally available materials and technology. The oven consisted of double-layer drying trays that accommodated an average of 15 pieces of table-sized fish which totaled 39kg and 33kg respectively, The oven tested with Merlucciuscapensis commonly known as Hake fish locally called Panla, and the drying system was also tested with Oreochromisniloticus which is commonly known as Tilapia fish, locally called Eja-Epiya. The mode of operation is on natural convection and the effectiveness was analyzed by grilling fish. The result showed that the fish was grilled for more than hours at varying temperatures.       ...
