In the present study, a heat pump dryer was designed and constructed. The performance of a heat pump assisted dryer was studied. The system was operated by using R22. The experimental data of the drying rates of shiitake mushroom was used to predict the specific moisture extraction rates (SMER). The maximum coefficient of performance (COP) of heat pump was also specified. The optimum operating condition was determined by the percentage of air recirculation from the total air mass flow rate. Finally, the key parameter that influence on the performance of the system and drying rate were specified.
