Improved charcoal stoves are known to generally develop high thermal efficiencies, but most generate appreciable level of gas emissions which has made them unsuitable for use withinresidential buildings. In order to eliminate this constraint, a supplemental air supply power pack wasintroduced to improve charcoal stove thermal and aesthetic performance. This paper described theexperimental setup, test procedures and results showing optimized performance. Comparisonbetween performance character...
characteristics of briquettes produced and effects of extrusion factors using
an existing screw extruder have been investigated. The feedstock
material used in the test is sawdust collected from sawmills around Ibadan
metropolis. Particle distribution analysis of materials collected showed that the
size varies between 6-8 mm with 10-20% powdery component (< 4 mesh) which is
known to give better products. Samples of
briquettes produced were used for physical characterizatio...
