cyclone burner, air fuel ratio, biomass powder, temperature distribution



Cyclone burner is a direct combustion technology, fuel used is rice husk powder of biomass with particle size <177 m (-80 mesh). The combustion process in the cyclone burner utilize swirl flow, with lab-scale testing. Influence of air fuel ratio (AFR) and temperature distribution in combustion chamber is an important factor of combustion process, resulting in the ratio of air requirement to fuel and performance of combustion chamber in the cyclone burner. The results of the cyclone burner test with rice biomass powder showed optimum AFR at 8.37, 8.63 and 7.82, with variations mass flow rate of the fuel. Maximum combustion temperature with biomass fuel rice husk powder reached 861 0C with mass flow rate of fuel 3.25 kg/h.
