The Drying Characteristic of Biomass with High Moisture Content
This paper presents the drying characteristics of rice husk and cornstalk with high moisture content at fixed temperatures. Experiments were performed in an oven drier, to reveal to the effects of initial moisture content, bed thickness and drying temperature on the biomass drying characteristics. The results indicated that the drying time was decreased as the rising of the drying temperature, and increased along with the initial moisture content and bed thickness. Moreover, the risk husk was easy to be dried than the cornstalk.
