GEK Power Pallet

Jim Mason, GEK, June, 2010

Here's a gallery of the most recent power pallet we shipped. This one went to Latvia.

You can see we've gone back to a traditional C channel frame skid under the engine genset. The CNC cut version turned out to be more work than the benefits realized. The C channel method is stronger with about the same weight. On top you can see the new 55gal stainless steel drum hopper. And on the bottom we've added rubber mounting feet under the skid and under the GCU box to further isolate vibration.

Here's another version of the same with just the engine-genset and wood gas mixing control. Everything except the gasifier, as this went to a researcher in the UK already with the gasifier part. See here: http://www.gekgasifier.com/gallery/browseimages.php?c=31&userid=
