Design and Study of Bio-Mass Chopper

Shubhankar, Pratik and Ramesh, M (2015) Design and Study of Bio-Mass Chopper. BTech thesis.



A chopper for cutting/slashing down biomass material using limited manual labour. The method includes selecting and moving biomass stocks through the input area and conveying it down towards the machete, operated manually or automatically using a motor, on a conveyOr belt which also runs on motor. The machete chops down the biomass to convert it into small pieces or chunks, as desired and is collected back from the output area. The length of the piece to be cut can be varied as required by varying the speed of the two motors accordingly. The chopped biomass can be used as biomass fuel bricks or to feed animals. The biomass chopper is designed with a prospect of keeping its cost low and providing a mechanism simple enough so that it can be operated by even women and children
