Working session 5 & 6

Post date: Apr 02, 2012 7:13:23 PM

I'm getting a bit behind in blogging about the gasifier. Three weeks ago we had a couple of backfires after letting some air leak into the system. All the wood pellets blew out the top and some went 20 feet into the air. It was exciting but dangerous. We skipped a week and were back at it last Wednesday. We didn't do any new construction but fired up the gasifier and got it to run for an hour straight. We also tried one inch cubes of maple and wood chips in the gasifier. In this gasifier the chips seemed to work better than the chunks. Check back later for pictures and videos.

Next session will be Wednesday April 4, 2012 It will be at George Adams' home and will be a planning session.
