A biomass burner integrated with gas to gas heat exchanger has been designed, constructed and evaluated. The direct flue from the biomass combustion inside the burner will flow into the dryer for the drying of biomass waste product. The burner is designed to supply heated air to the existing dryer model for biomass waste drying and food drying application. The burner use three types of biomass energy fuel which is Empty Fruit Branches (EFB), wood chip and rice husk. The gas to gas heat exchanger installation is important since the combustion of biomass hydrocarbon will be producing poisonous gas and it is not suitable for food drying application. Gas heat exchanger will use extended surfaces on both side of its cylinder pattern to increase the surface area and also increased the heat exchanger efficiencies. Material selection for this design is crucial because the unit must sustain service temperature around 300ºC. Stainless alloy has been chosen as the material for the heat exchanger. The experimental result shows that the output parameter obtained from the burner is within the required value. In conclusion, the burner had been detailed design and fabricated and give the required value needed for drying application.
