Producer Gas

Good, old Gasification meets High-Tech Fuel Cells

Hello everybody,

    I learned from Johannes about this forum. Just like Johannes, I did a PhD at Paul Scherrer Institut and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich in the field of Biomass Gasification. I wish I had known this forum back then because one of the goals of my thesis was to come up with a fixed bed gasifier in the 5 to 30 kWth scale which would operate at least one week non-stop. Fortunately, I did succeed in the end as you can read in my thesis.

      Ultimate test for Producer Gas

      Ultimate test for Producer Gas
      Doug Williams, Fluidyne Gasification, New Zealand, August 5, 2007

      Gasification Colleagues,

      Since I began working with producer gas in 1976, the question of it's quality, and how to measure it in a way that clarifies it's purity, has never in my mind, been answered by gas analysis. I have seen many gas analysis presented to prove a gasifiers function, and therefore justify claims of how this gas can be used, but this can hide a multitude of problems within the gas making phenomena.

      Gas-of-Fire 1000; architecture

      This is a stratified (AKA open top) gasifier with divorced fuel magazine. To start with, I plan to just hand feed it. This version is constructed from a junked hot water tank, plus other misc. junk that I had in stock.
