Hi Henry, they have a lot of the same ideas that I have, I how ever am going to dry my biomass on the roof with a double floor system from the waste heat made inside the container.
Here is a picture of my feed screw.
As of now I have two B20 volvo engines to be used in the container, I plan on two more in storage since these engines are so cheap to buy and easy to repair.
Im going to start with one gasifier in the beginning since its not set in stone the best design for continuously gasification.
I plan on two belt driven generators to get a even load on the bearings and redundancy, I know its more energy efficient to use direct drive but I need to be able to change gear ratio,
Most of the motors around here are 1450 rpm or 2200 rpm, some times you can find 1850 rpm motors but to find with the right voltage and all belt drive would make it more versatile for my use, also safety vise you would just burn up a belt rather than a coupling.
