Compression and relaxation properties of biomass for briquetting
Authors: Guo, L., L. G. Tabil, D. Wang, G. Wang
Description: The compression and relaxation properties of selected biomass (canola and wheat straw) were investigated to determine the correlation with variables (pressure, particle size (hammer mill screen size), moisture content, and temperature). The applied pressure ranged from 7.03 MPa to 14.06 MPa. Three screen sizes (19.05, 25.40, and 31.75 mm) of the hammer mill were used to grind the biomass samples. The ground biomass materials were conditioned to moisture contents of 9%, 12%, and 15% (w.b.). The results indicated that the compact density of biomass increased with the increase of pressure and moisture content. The relaxation properties of selected materials were affected by the set variables. Biomass materials had a higher stress relaxation with higher moisture content.
