Hi Michael, here are some pictures, of the final prosesing of the retort charcoal batch. There were a few Brans in the batch, I should of let it cook a little longer.
There was about a third of a 5 Gal. bucket of ash and fine char coal dust, 1/16" fines or less.
Almost a half of a barrow of engine grade charcoal.
Yes, the plastic under the whole unit caught 99% of the charcoal dust.
And none of the went to waste, the ash and fines are on the compost pile now.
The new coupling/slipcluch seems to be working well, thanks for the tip of using bigger hose.
If you like getting your hands dirty with charcoal dust and maybe a little on your face, then the Dark Side of Gasification Is For YOU!
