The combustion behavior of rotary solid porous burners (RSPB), i.e., temperature (T), exhaust gas (CO and NOx) and combustion efficiency (nc) were investigated. The stainless wire-mesh type of porous media was selected as porous absorber with porosity of 0.82, thickness of 4.2 mm. The rice husk was used as the fuel with the humidity around 12-14%. The experiment showed that the T tends to increase following the rotating velocity (ro) rising around 0.5-1 rpm. When a ro increased to 1.5 rpm, a T had tendency decreasingly. Because, a ro was too high resulting in the fuel in combustion chamber were ejected quickly then the reaction time reduced not enough to burn fuel, leading to incomplete combustion. The air flow rate (Qa) of 40 m3/h and the fuel load input rate (Qf) of 2.3 kg/h, gave the highest of T due to the system become complete combustion. Corresponding to the level of CO, the least level was obtained at ro = 1 rpm, Qf = 2.3 kg/h and Qa = 40 m3/h. The qc yielded highest with 93.7% at the same condition. The NOx in this research was considered as low, not more than 40 ppm in all experimental conditions.
