Abstract: This paper details the design and fabrication of a burner system, operating on biogas,for use in remote or rural regions of developing countries such as Nigeria. A desirable use for such a system in these areas is domestic cooking, and the burner has been designed with this need in mind, focusing on characteristics such as simplicity, cost effectiveness, efficiency and safety. Mild steel, brass and galvanized pipe sourced locally were selected for the construction. An empirical version of Bernoulli’s theorem was used to derive the flow rate of gas. The different components of the burner design were shown. Also discussed are the modifications necessary to meet the requirements of stable flame for the burner and the testing involved in determining the performance of the burner system.
