Seems how its still January here in Mich; I took a few days to stay inside out of our miserable weather. to work on the next gen Evolution Power System. I was going to leave it alone, but after working on the new Flex and seem how that has laid out the foundation I had too.
The Evolution is simply the chip version of the Flex, they are both capable of the same specs just different fuel. I basically managed to cram all the technology of the current Evolution with the same fuel capacity into this new design platform and in a smaller package. Over all, it is larger than the Flex and the gasifier is a bit larger than the old version. It has more than twice the gas cooling capability. I shaved off a few inches of the foot print and got its over all height down to just 62", so just a small step stool is all that we be required to load it. Shedding the loading plat form was a big criteria as that was a time eater and added some cost. It should be a little lighter weight and over all better quality.
We have some nicer weather on the way here and I hope to perform a full hopper run on this current machine build Im working on. Its been about two years since Ive had one I could test the hopper capacity run time. Im hoping with the newer reactor cores will show some improvement as the gas is very clean on these new ones. Im also going to run a new filter at the carb on this one to test.
So back to work Im now going to work on what may be called the Evolution Mini. This will be the successor of the current Utility. I think I will be able to get its price point down to only a third of the current Utility machines price point.
