Since i got the tools, claim that i can read and understand, i am building this (tuff nut) tar cracker and share the outcome.
It all started with reading old books , first picture. ( producergassketc00sextrich, page 6 )
Tar breaks up into carbon, CH4 and hydrogen when passed over glowing red hot carbon…
So, lets do just that.
Building a small reduction zone, electrical heated, to fit under a charcoal gasifier tube…
temperature aimed for: red glowing, anything between 1000ºC and 1300ºC
Diameter internal: 4" , height 6"
Heating coil: kanthal A1 wire, 3000 watts 220 volts
The goal is to find out how the effect on the gasquality will be when tar is dripped in, just above the glowing zone…
Probably this setup will feed the 5 Kwh test set…
The inner core is high aluminia ceramic
putting in a plastic container to poor the casting refractory
Letting it dry overnight, tomorrow i put it in my oven to dry and then the high temp bake off
New tools arrived, oven it is… build now by my specs
more experiments in the pipeline
all about gasification.
