This study examines the effect of combustion properties of briquettes produced from different crop residues. The densification of biomass changes the combustion characteristics, in view of that the system was designed to determined combustion characteristics of different crop residues briquette using a specially design combustion chamber. In this experiments air is blown around the combustion chamber. The maximum specific rate of combustion achieved 92.8 kg/h-m2 with airflow rate 63. 6m3/h. The higher biomass consumption was observed that mix briquette 17.7 kg/h. with air flow rate 63.6 m3/h. The result indicates that as the airflow rate increase, the rate combustion and temperature of combustion both increase simultaneously. Oxidation temperature and flame temperature in the combustion chamber as depend on a function of airflow rate.
