Gasifier cooler and filter

Post date: Jan 28, 2013 10:24:27 PM

Below is a slideshow of the cooler. This is first attempt at making a cooler from junk and I have no idea if it is going to do enough cooling of the gas. It will eventually be painted black to help radiate heat. If need be we will add fins or another cooler. It is made from an old cement sprayer which is turned upside down. The original top will serve as a way to get condensed liquid out of the bottom. The hole where the pump handle was has been replaced with a bolt and washer to seal it up. The 5" rubber washer was cracked and a replacement was made from silicone. The 1/2" hole where the sprayer hose was attached was removed and replaced with a bolt. The inlet pipe for the cooler isn't as fancy at the one for the cyclone. It comes in level instead of pointing down 15 degrees.

The parts of this cooler were cut out with a CNC plasma machine. If anyone else wants the .DXF files I can provide them.
