I believe some bags material sold in auto parts stores for clean up are just diatomaceous earth. Too, look into diatomaceous earth. I Made It! I also wood gasifier plan youtube a length of yourube metal across the lid of the barrel to hold it in place because of the need to severely limit oxygen flow through the burn area. I used 1.

At that point, I figure the smoke will be cool enough not to be a problem for the PVC. I added a strainer plate near the bottom of the funnel to keep the burning media from clogging the neck. A stainless steel bowl went into the bottom of the barrel to catch any hot ash that dropped from the burn area.

I also mounted a length of flat metal across the lid of the barrel to hold it in place because of the need to severely limit oxygen flow through the burn area. I then capped an opening in the center of the lid to complete the sealing of the system. The beauty of the wood gasifier is that you can use just about any kind of wood related product as fuel. You can burn leaves, acorns, twigs, wood chunks, wood chips, pellets etc.

There is reportedly a wide variety of materials that can be used in the filter to trap the tars and creosote. They also provide plenty of area for the impurities to be captured. I have nearby to my location a tree service which gives away wood chips for free, so I gather up 5 gallon buckets and fill them up with chips for fuel. There are many sources of free fuel if you just look around.

Every time I drive through my neighborhood when people have been trimming trees, I see not piles of branches and twigs by the side of the road but piles of free fuel! So, I have several buckets full of test fuel and a promise of a continuing supply. Taking the cap off the filter can, I pour in wood pellets you can buy 40 lb. I then fill my burn chamber almost to the top with wood chips and replace the lid, leaving the small opening in the center.

I plug in the air blower to start the downdraft and apply flame from a butane torch to the opening to start the fire. The wood should catch quickly and start to burn fast and hot. We want the fire to burn as hot as possible so the process of pyrolysis look it up will give us plenty of good clean fuel. It takes a few minutes even with the best designed system to get up to temperature and become ready to light a flare.

Smoke will rise out of the stack, and you can try to light it until it actually begins to burn. You'll know then that you have fuel just about ready to run your generator!

With my design, when I want to switch over to the generator, I would take a cap off the tee'd off 2" pipe, add the 90 degree angle and attach it to the gas tank of the generator.

Then I would close the ball valve and try to start the generator. If it starts and runs, then I know I was successful. Once I am sure it will continue to run on the wood gas, all I will have to do is make sure I always have wood chips in the burn chamber burning.

And as long as there is wood or wood related products available to burn, I will never be without power! As with any homemade project, improvements and tweaks are practically inevitable. I plan to fiddle with parts and methods to make this a better more efficient machine.

The fun is in the journey, not just the destination. It's my hope that you, dear reader, have your interest in this tried and true, almost-forgotten technology piqued and that you'll go and study its interesting history for yourself and find your own reason to reach for self-sufficiency!

Go to www. As the old saying goes: Safety first! Thanks for reading! Participated in the Apocalypse Preparedness Contest. Hi, Nice work there. For easy compare and to make it more easier to follow as it will be a sample. Reply 5 years ago on Introduction.

A video is forthcoming, as soon as I make the necessary adjustments and perform the next test. There will be a couple of minor design changes that I believe will make the gasifier work better. Reply 2 years ago. The site host has a 13kW Onan genset run off wood chips that is pretty damn sweet.

Plus there's a bunch of others that provide examples of their cheaply made FEMA style gasifiers that work in the 4kW range. They are constructed in a highly efficient manner. So you get gas production as well as heated steam for the possibility of steam turbine, or just as radiator heating, and the gas generation as well.

Waste as little energy as possible. I have to agree with the poster below though. If you want to get into gas compression, you should be looking at compressing the gas using industry standard equipment or at least your own mock-up of this equipment.

There are two ways to compress gas. One is pressurization, the other is refrigeration. Cheap power is nice, but if you damage property, maim, or kill, even accidentally, no amount of cheap power will cover the costs. Your only cost of living savings may be coming from government funded room and board for a while behind bars. Low pressure ratings, not designed for temps or gases involved.

Keep in mind, gases heating increase in pressure, water in a tank further increases pressure if the water freezes, though pressurized water requires lower temps to hit freezing point, but this can happen when you push cold gases on top of it. When water does freeze, especially when pressurized it can cause plugs, or if there's enough water, it can exert enough pressure to crack welds, and the greater the pressure on the water, and the lower the freezing temp, the greater it's pressure exertion when it does freeze [for example, water in your house lines are somewhere between psi Wood Plank Wall Dining Room usually around psi avg , when frozen it exerts about 2k psi why copper pipes burst , at it's lowest freezing point, around degrees C, it can reach nearly 10k psi when freezing.

We worry about this when flowing back some cold 10k psi CO2 frac wells, but you'll probably never see it at home in a mini compressor station]. Even the tiny speaker on a modern cell phone in the right fuel-air mixture can and has detonated a leaky bomb. But Class 1 Div 1 is best if it has to be close to the station, basically means that there may at any time be an explosive mixture of oxygen-fuel in the air where your equipment is operating.

So either use rated equipment or keep anything less out of the area. It will cover your ass if you ever have a leak while your not paying attention, or during servicing of your setup. There are plenty of carefully constructed, cost efficient, and safe designs out there that still follow even loose regulation guidelines, that can protect you and others around you from getting injured or killed.

I'm working on one myself. My suggestion is to build a small scale three-four stage gas separator. The system I use in the field is totally unnecessary for a gasifier, being 2k psi and holding 6k liters of fluid, going into a second, low stage separator that holds 29k liters of fluid at psi max, since these are designed to receive already pressurized gas, and massive quantities of sand and fluid.

But you can down scale the same construction to do essentially the same thing downstream of a gasifier prior to entering your compressor station and fuel storage. And even using dual stage tanks like that, though a little more costly, will ensure you retrieve the cleanest gas to your compressor, extending it's life.

Gasifiers did run almost all of Pallet Wood Furniture Plans Free Version the civilian cars in Germany during the war until gasoline was available to them again. But a CAUTION about trying to use a air compressor to compress the flammable fumes into pressurized tanks, you will probably end up dead, air compressors are not designed to pump flammables, and the sparks from the electric motor etc.

I wonder how difficult it would be to use an air compressor and large tank to capture and store the gases? Maybe even set it up as a dual system that can also burn the gas for heat. It could be as simple as a gas grill or camp stove burner in the bottom of your wood stove or fireplace. There is a guy on the internet who filled a weather balloon, and is driving around towing the balloon as it fuels his car.

The car is duel fuel. It is something like know pub. I think the name was Steve Harris. No matter what I do the second link disappears! It just doesn't like me. Going to type it instead of cut and paste: www. There are a couple of videos on YouTube where that is being tried. I honestly don't know if they were successful, but I can't imagine it not working. I do have one of those huge propane tanks behind the house I have never used, so hmmmmmm Using a propane tank would probably be safer now that I think about it.

I've long contemplated safety of storage. I saw a masonry wall coated with rhino coat on both sides withstand a pretty huge looking explosion.

A small outdoor vented doghouse might answer well for some peace of mind. Of course so will detectors in dwelling spaces. Thoughts on the C J Wood Plant Hire 2018 dangers of explosion warranting such expense? No pressure. It worked. But be careful storing carbon monoxide near your house.

It may invalidate your insurance. The tank isn't rated for that use and they will use any excuse to terminate your coverage. Also might be a firecode for distance an industrial gas needs to be stored at. Better safe than sorry. The valves are for switching between the two as well as acting as a choke for the air pump. And the pump leads up to the flare. The purpose of the flare is to check gas quality before routing it to the engine. I figured that in the apocalypse the chance of having a working wall outlet is pretty slim lol.

So I chose to use Diy Wood Projects Plans Uk an air pump that could run off of a 12v car battery. Nothing special, just an air mattress pump that connects to a vehicles power point. If you decided to reproduce this project, here are some tips and tricks to get you started.

Store bought wood pellets seam to do the trick nicely. So you built a gasifier and want to try it out Now what? First fill the fire tube with your fuel of choice, then simply turn the pump on with lots of choke at first , then uncap the ignition tube, insert a source of ignition, let the fire catch, recap the ignition tube, and as the fire progresses let off the choke a little bit at a time. After it has been running for awhile hold a flame to the end of the flare and, with any luck, the gas will ignite.

Between the gasifier and the engine, the gas will need to be pre-carbureted, which is as simple as adding a tee in the hose to bleed off excess gas. Then you just run the line into the engine carburetor and that's it! Unfortunately, I haven't tested this on a full size vehicle yet, as I am only 15, and my mom wont let me get anywhere near her car lol.

Lastly I added a handle and some caster wheels, as well as sealing everything with wood stove sealer and giving it a coat or two of high heat paint. This was a fun and very educational project, I would really encourage anyone who is interested in being prepared, or just looking for a fun project, to build a gasifier.

I forgot the "excellent job" part. If not, look into those things and tie in water glass sodium silicate.

Soap stone is said to take about degrees more than common fire brick. I was told mixing water glass and talc, then baking it could create soap stone. When I look at forge an kiln linings, many of the cloth materials offered list sodium silicate.

Too, look into diatomaceous earth. Here, there is a "mine" and we can go get free, broken bags of the stuff for projects and pest control. A few jet stoves use it to insulate between pipes. I believe some bags material sold in auto parts stores for clean up are just diatomaceous earth. That would be a lot cheaper than the bag my boss sent me to town to get twenty-five years ago.

I paid twenty bucks for a one or two pound bag. Now I have a couple free, five gallon buckets sitting out in the shop. I've long had an appreciation for things like gassifiers, and jet stoves.

I figure the two go hand in hand because they both focus on efficient use of an ancient technology. With today's knowledge and technology, they should be more common, and even more practical than they were back when the U. Sadly, the wood stove has seen few honest improvements over the years. In fact, I was shocked to hear friends brag about only needing four cords of wood to heat their rather large homes. Especially because, back around 72, I heated an uninsulated, two story farm house off an antique stove about three or four hundred pounds with more controls than my modern car okay, that might be a slight exaggeration.

I did it in a fifty below, Eastern Washington winter and on two cords about a half cord of fir and the rest apple. Then there is the matter of my sister's complaint about her pellet stove - it's worthless without power. In fact, when I lived on the ocean beaches of the Pacific Northwet, I saw nearly new pellet stoves out in front of houses with free signs on them, just after major storms and a resulting two week spell with no power to the area.

I haven't done it, but for that solution, I figured one or two five gallon buckets of concrete would solve the problem. Using the method used to drive pendulum clocks, one could build a variable speed system that ran the auger somewhere around one RPM, or whatever such stoves require. To raise the buckets, a simple block and tackle system would allow even a kid to "charge the auger battery.

Using jet stove and gassifier technology, then mixing in the auger feed technology, one should be able to run a pretty efficient household, even if the gassifier portion only produced enough power to run a chipper to fill the auger.

One of the key points of both systems is, smoke should be nearly a non-issue, and one should be able to heat a well insulated structure with a fraction of the fuel the pretty wood stoves sold today use. I enclosed it and installed a wood burner in the basement. The solid concrete floors and walls acted like a heat flywheel. It took about three days to bring all the concrete up to a comfortable temp, but, once there, it took a couple days to cool too.

The combo of heat and concrete made the basement quite comfortable. I imagine it would have been remarkable, had the concrete floor had foam under it and if the exterior of the walls had six inches of insulation on the outside.

Amazing project. Can you post video of the gassifier operating? Or maybe even make a video version of this how to article? Thank you! Question 2 years ago. What about using a large flat panel magnifying glass focused on a tungsten Archimedes screw to gasifiy wet algae biomass? Reply 3 years ago. I appreciate the kind words, and I'm glad you could take something useful away from this Instructable.

Was wondering, I know that the one handle on the gasifier is the shacker but what is the other one for. Also could you post a drawing or something of all the components that go into the actual gasifier unit because I am having troubles understanding the configuration of it. Hey there! Thanks for the comment. The other handle just makes it easier to take off the ignition port cap. As to your second question, I believe I showed everything on the inside.

If you're still having trouble, let me know! Reply 4 years ago. Yeah, I am currently working on a machine to turn coal into diesel. It's essentially the same process, only using indirect heating via a burner.

The gasses produced are then condensed and ran thru a fuel scrubber. I've been looking at a way to use plasma to turn material into syngas too. Above is a link to a forum where a lot of people has done a lot of work regarding the plastic to fuel process. This guy can explain it better than I can lol. He also has alot of other alternative energy projects you might enjoy. Hope this helps.

Unfortunately, I don't have any social media accounts. However I do have a Youtube channel. I only have one video right now, but I have plans for many more! I'll post a link soon.
