Step 24: Cylcone - 1

Assemble cyclone body

  • Clamp top end plate into top of cyclone cylinder. Slag side of plate should be down. Make sure to center tabs in slots around the perimeter.
  • Tack end plate and cylinder together. Tack down side seam, making sure overlap stays consistent.
  • Weld 2" x 4" pipe nipple into top of end plate to make cyclone outlet. The threads on the nipple should extend exactly 1" above the top of the end plate, and be exactly perpendicular to the top plate. Reconfirm this alignment from the outside as well as the inside of the cylinder.
  • Tack together the tapered cylinder. You may find hose clamps, tie downs, or other clamping devices to help hold the taper together and aligned before tacking.
  • Bring the top cylinder and bottom taper together to assess alignment. The weld is usually easier if the taper lip is slightly larger than the cylinder, allowing the cylinder to slip down inside it about 1/8". It is also fine if they meet edge to edge. The important thing is that the seam is smooth and even. Any method that achieves this is fine.
  • When happy with the alignment, tack into place, then stitch weld in stages to prevent warpage.
oh yeah. woodgas, gasification yuppers.
Just a FYI don't waste your time building a FEMA unit.... All you will do is end up with a bunch of head aches and stuck valves..... <br><br>Hi Jim found this page by checking my referral log on my web site......<br><br>Burn Baby Burn!!<br><br>Jonathan<br><br>www.woodgas.net <br><br>
could this be built separate and store the fuel and pump it into the car at a later time? In other words, could we build a mini plant at home use the fuel in the car in the storage tank instead of driving around with that bulky contraption in the back? Your thoughts..anyone?
there's a chemical process... or processes (not sure, not a chemist) that will turn the fuel into a diesel-type fuel. google &quot;fischer-tropsch process for better info than i can offer.
I did not understand as if it makes the heating of the biomass gasificator, with coal? I will need mor information.
hi, really like the project, but i cant get a pro account, can anybody send the pdf steps to saad.ul.haq@hotmail.com
oh boy, this is very complicated. Could someone give me a very basic way of buildiing a small experimental GEK?

Sorta got a good idea for a small version now. Thanks!
what motor was used for the vac blower, it also looks like it runs counterclockwise?
Didn't the gas companies get to you yet ? bribe you (kill you :-) ? I guess not .. it is still up . Good luck . don't remove even if they give you 5M$ . (I broke at 10M !)
How much would it cost for parts to build the gassafier, not the honda or any thing els
you can do all the vessels from salvage propane tanks and the like. the plumbing can be new or salvaged. thus the costs for mateials can go from around $0 to $500 for all new bought things.
That is absolutely AWESOME! Now I wish I had the welders and money to throw one of these suckers together. Good work.
