Hello woodgasers; You know I have been having quite a discussion on cleaning up the gas for my engine. Seeings Max is our resident expert on Imbert style gasifiers and accessories, I have gone to two of his threads to learn. One on the Audi and the other on a Nesson Micra (?).
The following is a portion of his post;
On the Audi the gastube has to make a bend over the open trunk lid and in the summer go parallel with the 1,1m long “dishtable basin” (?) to its front “gabel” (?) in order to get enough cooling to dew point. In winter, it is led in to the basin from the back “gable.” (?)
So, this is a wet system with two matress pieces of open cell matresses
superposed on each other with ss net under and above, to form “manifolds” to spread and collect the wet gas.
“Basin”(? I suppose that that has a top on it.) measures: 110 X 50 X 20 cm.
About 1" inside the back “gable” there is a bulkhead “(avoiding low corners)”(?) to collect the filtered gas from above the upper ss grid on the mattresses. It is taken out near the lower right corner, fed back to the “gasgenerator righthand lower part for last condense separation”(?) before rising up for re-heating in a “smuggler cannister”(?) before final paper filtering on the back side of the gasgenerator.
(identical bucket as for the twin cyclones). From there over the rised trunk lid on the right side of the basin to the right hand windshield pillar and down into the right wing and finally into the motor compartment.
Condense is taken out from the basin in the righthand lower corner with a 1 1/4" rubber tube to the bottom end of the “condense separator” (?) for the gas at the gasgenerator’s righthand lower part. (There is an internal bottom between the condense separator for gas and the condense tank proper). They have individual draining.
Can someone understand this and make it clearer to me? Skizzes, sketches, or pictures would help. TomC
