Convective belt dryer was used for apple drying. Experimental research was conducted, for discovering the drying conditions which lead to quality dried product. Three-thermal zones convective drying was applied in intermittent process of heat supply. In the drying room, the apple slices were arranged in one level. The mutual influence of drying medium state, dried product state and dryer performances was observed and encouraged in correct direction. Air temperatures between 35 oC and 85 oC, air velocities between 2 m/s and 5m/s and drying intensity between 5 h/cycle and 8 h/cycle were used. The essential parameters were collected and applied in quality drying process realization.
