I hope I’m not boring you all, but I just had to look into my filter buckets again, and check out the filter socks. Here’s some pictures of what I found.
Socks slightly damp, water on the floor when opening the bucket seal, standing water on the lid. No soot on the outside of the socks, just dampness showing.
Inside the top bucket moisture, wipe clean with paper towel.
More soot but not that as expected, wiped clean with a paper towel.
Cleaned here too, and looked up inside of one of the socks, some soot starting to show up inside.
Where is all the soot, most of it seems to be in the bucket sump with about a cup of water, I had the sump drain plug dripping last night on the long run so more water was on the driveway with soot. It finally plug it self up with soot.
When I brought the filter into the garage last night , I noticed water was trapped in the inlet pipe going into the filter, low spot. I will reroute the pipe to correct that problem.
I’m very pleased with how this filter works at low, medium, and high velocity gas flows.
Here’s what I found in the hopper.
I shook the hopper and more char fell into the hole.
Pushed the charcoal to the back of the hopper need to refill to see how much charcoal was burned in the last run.
