Hi Wood Gassers,
I had a great time at the brewery yesterday. It was fun watching all the awe struck faces when the generator started up with no gas tank attached. I had forgotten how mysterious this must seem to the average person.
I did a number of starts and stops and even knowingly did a few dumb things like demonstrating what happens when you leave the hopper lid open too long and she FEMA’s. It was amazing how fast the black junk pushed forward.
The condensate was the big surprise:
Getting the light correct was difficult to properly show the color of the water but to me it looked like dilute herbal tea. It was definitely not black, sooty, or tarry. All the water I got on my hands appeared perfectly clear. I think the clean filter is getting “seasoned” and catching more dirt. There is no noticeable pressure drop but it is definitely running better.
The 135 degree drip leg ran without any noticeable pressure penalty and caught a significant amount of water. That earned its way in as a permanent feature.
I have twelve days off and then on to the next gig…
