I think I mentioned this some where on here. I am kicking around an idea for building a water driven cyclone filter for this tractor. Just wondering if any one has ever tried this. I dont like media filters of any kind, running syngas we already loose power and a restricted media filter just adds to it. I am thinking of getting one of the electric water pumps from the automotive aplications for driving it. They make about 20 GPM @ 7 amps, so plenty of volume. I was thinking of building two of these one after the gasifier and one will be placed after the condensor.
Im thinking of liquid cooling the condensor tubes as well.
Seems like this would be a great system if it works as planned. Every thing should be self cleaning and the cyclone design will actually help pump out the gas to the engine.
So If any one has ever tried this Id like to hear your experience.
I have to put together a price list for the components needed to complete this build. Still brain storming a bit, but probably first thing next week Ill start laying out the full plan for this and get things going.
