Ok the gasifier part is finished. Now the surrounding gadgets. I wuld like a few sugestions/experiances/opinions from you guys.
The plan is to make a wk style condensing hopper, the wk tubes will be somewhat different, but this doesent play a role. The hopper will be insulated so that the heat will stay where it shuld be, toasting the wood in the hopper. I was thinking to allso add pipes goeing trugh the wood bed, trugh wich hot gas wuld flow. Similar to @gasman plank hopper idea. But l am a bit afraid the small 50l hopper becomeing too hot for a in the trunk build. Allso, l will try to avoid any gas in flowing parts being inside the vehicle.
Second, air preheat. I did reread all the detailed information on air preheat on this site, and while l still strongly belive in air preheat, l am thinking to not use it here.
First of all, l am wery space limited. The whole setup needs to be squeezed in a ex muffer compartment. I am hunting milimeters here
Second, a airtight preheat mantel around the gasifier/baffle wuld be hart to manufacture
And third , l will dry/preheat the fuel a lot. So, based on the information given my Max and l think Dustin somewhere here, this shuld be the same as air preheat in terms of gas quality.
I was thinking to heat the gas goeing out of the wk tubes thugh! So, wet smoke enters the top of the wk tube, condenses,cools, then gets reheated before entering the hopper again. Any ideas?
