The drying and particle size characterization of Danta (Nesogordonia papavereria) and Hard
Cross (Vitex doniana) hardwood sawdusts were investigated at temperatures 80 ºC, 90 ºC and
105 ℃. The experimental drying data were modeled using eighteen existing drying models.
The results showed that the modified Henderson and Pabis model offered the best fit to the
drying curves of Danta and Hard Cross sawdusts. The experimental data obtained from the
particle size distribution of both the samples were fitted into two most commonly used
mathematical models—Rosin-Rammler (RR) and Gates-Gaudin-Schuhmann (GGS) models.
The values of the correlation coefficients obtained from fitting the experimental data into
those models, showed that RR models gave a better description of the experimental data as
compared to GGS model. Furthermore, the results of the particle size distribution analyses
revealed that an average value of 94% of Danta and 72% of Hard Cross particles was less
than 1 mm in size. Therefore, both Danta and Hard Cross sawdust needs no further grinding
for bio-oil production.
