Availability of raw materials, especially water hyacinth in the areas of Semarang district encourages many parties to immediately utilize water hyacinth plant to be processed into a variety of finished products or semi-finished so versatile and have added value in the field of interior textile industry and handicrafts. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of engine rotation frequency of the physical properties of fiber decorticator hyacinth, mengertahui effect of drying temperature on moisture content in dry matter, thus making the application of water hyacinth fibers can mengahsilkan fibers with better quality, the effect of drying temperature on the rate drying of water hyacinth fibers to obtain the optimum conditions in the drying process, knowing the appropriate drying temperature of water hyacinth fibers in order to get the most powerful. From the experimental results show that the rotation frequency of 60 Hz obtained better results of fiber and contain no cortex. Fibers in the drying process of drying temperature on variable 60, 70, 80, 90, 100 oC water hyacinth fibers results obtained with the water content in a row 6.30, 7.45, 7.80, 7.85, 8.10% and the drying rate constants of fiber: 0.00278, 0.00396, 0.00395 , 0.0044, 0.0059 gr/jam.cm2. then when the fiber tensile strength testing of water hyacinth on the drying temperature of 100 oC variable has the strongest tensile strength of 0.4 N.
