Development and Testing of Ovens Using Sawdust as Fuel

The development and laboratory testing of a prototype "hole-through - sawdust" type burner and oven is described. Four models of the oven were field tested to obtain socio-economic data on user reaction and its potential for future use. The oven produces temperatures comparable to standard electric and gas settings by appropriate loading of the sawdust burner and can maintain these ranges of temperatures to enable baking to be carried out.
