Hi guys, as promissed, the sack filter video.
Took me 3 days to upload, dont know why but my prone is no friend with Youtube.
Anyways, l had driven it for about 300 miles and started feeling restrictive gas flow so l decided to take a look at the towel sack. It was NOT the reason for the restriction (l found a ashplug in the gasifiers restriction-happens from time to time) so l hanged it in the sun for a hour, and put it right back in.
There was maybee a couple of spoons worth of soot in the sack, shuld operate well for a lot more miles.
Put 150 aditional miles on after that.
Now, a nother interasting thing l noticed. Gasifiers never seem to stop surpriseing.
Since l started to burn pure beech chunks, my condense/filter are is full of ammonia! I did smell traces of it before but now l literaly have to vent the filter barrel for a minute in order to come close to the sack without tears in my eyes. Incredibly strong burning smell.
Has anyone saw this too?
I know woodgas is a feedstock for ammonia production but it requires a iron based catalyst to react. And why now, when l swiched to a better fuel?
I dont complain thugh, plants shuld like the ammonia rich condensate and the engine doesent complain on rich ammonia allso
