Dual-chamber brick-built fornace

A dual-chambered brick built furnace is planned as an alternative system for the combustion of: groundnut shells; coir dust; and rice husks. The furnace will include the following features:

· a primary combustion chamber where the feedstock and primary/carrier air is fed;
· a secondary combustion chamber with the facility for feeding secondary air; and
· dual ash collection pits.

The results of this study are to be reported separately.
