The Design of a Device for Burning Biomass as Straw and Brushwood


Article Preview

A special hand-grate boiler burning biomass of straw and brushwood with natural ventilation is introduced. The tested thermal efficiency of the boiler is higher than 61% and has good potential of energy saving and environmental protection, thus meets the need of heat supply under operation condition. A wide market of the boiler in remote regions is expected.
