Abstract

India is a developing nation and its GDP is dependent mostly on agriculture. And due to agriculture tonnes of biomass waste is being produce, which is mainly used for making manure and also for cooking in some rural area but still most of it goes into waste. But nowadays these biomass is been transformed into briquettes by compressing the biomass with some binder as 100 kg/m2 which increases its density and also calorific value. This research paper focuses on modification of the existing design of briquetting machine which includes modifying mixing and blending unit and extrusion unit which is screw type to make a low cost machine. This biomass residue is first turned into small particles of 5 mm size in a mixer drum which is powered by a 1/4HP AC single phase motor running at 1440 r.p.m.Then this grinded biomass was blended with binder in another drum in same unit by manually using a blending arm. After that the blended biomass is fed into extrusion unit where it was compressed by screw which was running at 300 r.p.m powered by 0.5 H.P motor through attachable a nozzle with cylindrical hole and then cut into equal pieces manually. The capacity of machine measured was 20 kg/hrs.
