nico badenhorst: Flash hi Nico here, I have been running my 3 cyl diesel 20kva with my
gasifier on 40%diesel and 60% gas for the past 7 years. is it possible to
run my whole system on gas only, i use charcoal as fuel. Ive been told that
one cannot run a diesel engine on gas only? Man i wish I had your videos
earlier ive been on this for the past 15 years.
Your videos and explanations and running commentary are great you should be
a college professor the way you can explain stuff.
Best regards from Namibia Africa.
Harold Cokayne: Flash, Harold in Maine here. I have watched several of the videos over
the last 5 weeks and this is one I would put on a DVD or on a SD Card to
share incase the internet were to shut down.. I do like how you keep it
quite simple and functional...
nasser azam: finallay i have avideo on youtube( GAZ FIRE 2014 ONE) in this video there
is no shaker and ignition port temporary to minimize the holes
i already burned the charcoal and put the wood chips later i used r.t.v.
silicon for insulatrion this material usually used for pvc pipes i dont
know if it is work here or not the production is just smoke no gas what is
the reason i want from you to write me the name of r.t.v. you used to buy
it on ebay and is there afan on ebay simillar with your fan
with best regards
thomasheisler: Now this is easy for me to understand and build...So i am thinkin with this
design and the tri- filter that would be an awesome combo.... i didnt
understand the other one with the 5 air supply, maybe i just need to go
thru the different levels of learning to get there so i will do that. I
can't expect my brain to get it in one shot i got to sit and go thru the
nasser azam: what i want here the reasons that make the gasifier doesn't burn i used in
my experement asmall fan it works but the production is just smoke that
also i used ashaker ignition port above the gasifier there is ahole for the
air ,cooler and filter so what is the reasons that make the gasifier fail
is it important to put acharcoal in the biggining i didn't
i wait your answer
thanks very mutch
Edward Teresinski: HOME MADE GASIFIER
nasser azam: hi
i made a device like this and when i tried to fire, it burned for three
minutes and after that it didn't , can you help me to find out the mistakes
for that ?
flash001USA: The run time depends on the fuel. The stuff in the video started out in a
one gallon paint bucket and it lasted almost an hour. I see it like this: I
could have washed a load of clothes and charged a bunch of rechargeable 15
minute batteries with that burn all while watching some TV with a few
lights thrown into the mix. As soon as I finish the tweaks I will do a
video that covers the build in detail and I wish that I would have
mentioned that in the video.
tecknowfreak: Cool that u made sure u some how had a good cyclone one thing i have been
testing out is in any pipe use a flat piece of tin and twist it and place
inside the pipe it give more area for heat loss and spins the gas cleaning
it! One of my frds has gone a diff way and made a fin setup like a cutter
but with a twist so the gas in a pipe spins u might want to try something
like that too the spinning gas takes out more water than just a flowing one!
Prepmor308: They are using these systems in rural India.Investers are helping areas
where they don't have power. Small systems that power the surrounding homes
for a nominal fee. They run it for 5 hours a night.Changing peoples lives.
using rice husks that can't be used for cattle feed.I have a couple people
here that want me to help them build this for their homesteads and farms.
Want to use your filter system. i will make sure they know who came up with
it and maybe i will video it. Stand by...:)
flash001USA: Google this. Imperial Mfg Group Hi Temperature Stove & Furnace Cement This
stuff is rated well above the call of duty for the gasifier! It's rated at
2700 Deg F. You can use Refractory Cement too because it's rated up to 2000
Deg F or just Google the following: high temperature refractory cement.
This will give you all of the information you will need. I wanted a cone
for my reduction zone but paying a shop to make a 1/4 inch thick come was
out of the question! Cont
flash001USA: Thanks man! I also appreciate your help in answering some of my questions
too! I plan on doing a few more tweaks then I'll do a new video with the
flash001USA: You sound like me the first time I seen one of these things running. Be a
little patient with me and as soon as I finish a few tweaks (probably this
weekend) I'll be doing a new video covering nothing but the build in detail.
CNCmachiningisfun: Yup, it looks like the bug has bitten us both :) . It seems we are doing
the same kind of stuff, modifiying our existing gassers while starting on a
new build. Mine turns out to be a bit too big for my needs, so I plan to
make a much smaller one to keep the batteries charged up. It's amazing what
you can make out of the junk that's lying around :)
rwg42985: Hey! Just got your email! ;) ~Russ
ImMADasAMeatAxe: ill be looking at garden waste differently now, very valueble fuel material
flash001USA: We couldn't power the country off of natural resources but imagine if
people were given jobs to harvest overgrown land just enough to clean it up
then that material was used to power small towns. We would have the
following perks (1) Real jobs (2) Cleaned up landscapes (3) Clean power.
And the best part of this would be a renewable clean energy. Yeah, the
power companies owners are very aware of this technology.
Superdan187211: I have a book from FEMA about how to make them and how to use it to run
things of it....mine is coming along well
Mikes Homestead: Hi my friend. Unfortunately the Fema design was only engineered for an
emergency situations. So it's not the best tar cracker in the world. A lot
has to do with its hearth. Paralysis doe's not take place the same like an
imbert design. I would have to say with yours, if you are going to run a
engine with it, use a bigger cooling system it will condense the tar more
in to liquid and if you use a bigger filter you will have longer run time's
with out having to clean it as much. Good luck
j johns: are you running a fan at the same time?
j johns: Thank you very much for showing the individual components, the build makes
more sense now. How much run time do you get per load with that config or
can you continuous feed the chamber?
playasridebmx13: great video brother
joseph perry: Just wondering what you can do with the tar?
tecknowfreak: Nice vid a few things u might want to change tho one is yr grate u just
used thin metal for it okay for short use but u did use a nice thick pipe
for burner tube u should change out yr grate to a thicker metal or use a
stainless bowl for better longer lasting! Another one thing u should change
is how yr inlet to yr cyclone setup u have it going in it at a 90deg angle
change that to more like a 45 deg so its more along side the can u will get
way more action cleaning better!
flash001USA: Be sure to make a video once you get it up and running. If you got the time
check out my last video "06-20-2013 Generator running on small dead
branches and sticks."
Novo Karpati: Interesting, that 'russian stoves' or 'masonry heaters' have a +88%
combustion efficiency. THAT's something to think about. YOU may be the
first to more or less perfect this technology. So, have at it, and good
luck, Sincerely, NK
flash001USA: This was my very first build and since then I have made improvements on
this build and I got rid of the tar issue but this design "the FEMA design"
is prone to producing tar. I'm now building a Imbert system. If you get a
chance check out video 6. Thanks, Flash
Novo Karpati: ah...what 'tar', that is un-burnt volatiles, which in short means...a BAD,
dirty burn, period. In other words...FAIL....
flash001USA: Thanks for the reply. If you get a chance, go through the other videos I
did on this. Check out "Video 6" then check out the filter construction
video. This was my first attempt at this. I am now in the process of
building a much better gasifier and I just came in from working on it about
5 minutes ago. Once I test it I will place a complete build up in a new
video along with some good explanations on how to build it with the bare
minimum of tools.
Natthaphong Meesombat: If power generation ,the generator needs to modify?
flash001USA: Very little modification needs to be done to the generator. You just need
to have a way to control the gas and the air mixture.
Prepmor308: Great build. To answer your question they do know. The government spent
20-30 million on r&d for coal gasification.It works well,burns very clean.
We have trillions of tons of coal.But people have vilified coal to further
their own agendas or to make big profits elsewhere.As the kids say, it's
all about the Benjamins.Got your site from JR's video. Glad i followed him
over.Subscribed to you both.We need to encourage each other.Sure not
getting any from the knuckle heads in D.C...
theroofsedge: What are the welded washers for on the combustion chamber?
flash001USA: I'm actually subscribed to Mr. Teslonian's channel. There are a lot of
people on the youtube channel that are having some really good luck with
their gasifier projects. I'll be looking for a video from you so good luck
with the project.
Mick Dannii: im in Australia but we seem to be having similar concerns :) cheer again
mate n look forward to seeing more videos :)
flash001USA: Thanks. Once I finish this up with with my changes, I'll do a second video
and make the build available for anyone that would like to build this
flash001USA: Thank you for that reply. I can honestly say this is not about me getting
hits or views. I just want a dependable setup and during this learning
process I thought that posting this might help others that may be
considering trying this. I am almost 99% finished on a very simple Imbert
build and once I work out the bugs I'll do a build release for everybody to
tonysshadow: We in the US also used such a gas pre-Jack the Ripper era. If you watch
cowboy movies, youll see from time to time they will light up wall mounted
lamps...or street lamps. That was coal gas...which we had in ABUNDANCE. Its
made essentially the same way as wood gas.
flash001USA: I can second you on the SCRAPS comment. All I have to do is walk in my
woods for about 20 minutes and I can easily have a days worth of fuel. This
caught my interest last year and now I'm starting to get a good grip on how
to get a clean gas from the gasifier. Did you see the video where I'm
running my generator on scrap wood that I picked up from my woods?
Bigwannas: I could run one of these up here in Northern Ontario Canada forever on the
SCRAPS forestry companies leave behind. ; How is that vortex thingie
assembled? I could use that to generate electricity at my bugout trailer
without paying for gasoline. Very interesting..Nice work btw.. Looking
forward to "how to " video and subbed your channel.;-}}}
flash001USA: You are correct. I am constructing an Imbert now. It is almost completed.
flash001USA: Prepmor308 Thanks for the reply. This was my first gasifier video. I just
finalized the Imbert and I ran it tonight with very stable results so I
hope to release a video with the generator running followed with a "how to"
video so that anyone that wishes to try this can build one for themselves.
Even without using coal just think how much power could be harvested from
areas that need cleaning to make room for new growth. If I could do this
with a barrel and some pipe then anybody can.
flash001USA: You have to run a fan (blower) to get it to ignite but once it's going, the
engine will pull the vacuum for you but yes, since I was doing raw test, I
ran the blower the whole time to test the unit.
flash001USA: I just replied to your last message before I seen this one. I am already on
top of what you mentioned in this reply with the newer design. Stay
flash001USA: IF you have ever filled a paper cup half way full of water then light it.
The fire will always stop at the water line and you can even boil water in
a paper cup. This is why I am using the cement. I made my own cone but it
was out of 16 Gauge steel so I had to protect it. There are some people
making reduction zones out of potters clay too. I started to do that but I
used the cement instead.
Mick Dannii: thanks for the share awesome first effort im def going to go look at the
rest of your videos before i attempt my first build n im thinking with the
help of everyone on here i will hopefully get answers to any problems i may
come across :) i also believe that our governments are only puppets... they
all know of this technology probably to the point that we will take years
to get to but they are held back in educating the general public cause of
big business :( like i stated on other posts tbc
flash001USA: Thanks man. Check out the last video I made. This has been a learning
process for me and I have taken this much further since this video.
theroofsedge: No problem. I enjoyed your videos anonymously and I could not comment or
rate. The spirit of your giving is very generous and kind and I commend you
for that.Even though I am exited about this whole thing I will wait until
you progress with the new design.
theroofsedge: I love your design. If you install a large drip pipe from your moisture
chambers with one valve at the moisture chamber and one valve at the end of
the pipe you can drain the water off without shutting down. For example,
with both valves closed, open the top valve and the pipe fills with water;
close top valve and open lower valve and water will drain.
