No negativity! If l thod my ideas are perfect l wuld never post them here in search of opinion. I hope you guys put as mutch question marks as possible to my ideas, becouse that way you help me a lot with findinding the fragile boundry betwen good snd bad ideas.
Correct. This skizz is just a skizz. My current gasifier has those details taken care of. The ashcone will have plenty of place to build.
No, the main nozzles will be the bottom ones. They will have preheated air, while the top ones will be auqilary ones (in case of extreme gas demands) with no air preheat.
The nozzle circle will follow the 60° ashcone.
I have no dubt the ss restriction cone will survive the heat. Or at least shuld… But l agree, a quatity aloy shuld be used. Nevertheless, we are talking about some mass hete. The cone culd easyaly weight a kilo.
The massive cones shape is allso partly planned for flywheel effect at idleing.
As for useing copper, yes, it wuld work if the cone were open at one side, able to radiate out the heat. Since this is unwanted and it is actualy desireabe to have the cone well insulated with char/ash, l think the copper wuld just melt.
The ash insulated plunger is a good idea! It might work.
Or maybee eaven cheramic?
What you speak of is the only reason why l built the automixer on my Chevy.
Women call for equality these days. Ok, l have no problem cooking, cleaning, child careing and stuff like that. But, in the meantime l allso expect my wife to help me prepare firewood, take care of the fealds, the animals, and ofcorse, drive on wood. We had such policy from when we met and it works fine for us.
But like you sayd, the genders will never realy be equal. Eaven if my wife wuld want, she culd never withstand a 9 hour firewood preparation job, or strike a 20 pound hammer at a pole with one hand… not built for that.
