vert fed 3 foot plus only about 20 foot long realy , its not fireing at the mo but it works with no smoke and no insulation .
how much heat/ draft can the fire lose befor it starts to smoke
i know the dryer the wood the beter
could i make a wood feed from the old gas bottle on the left
the more insulated the better it run?
make multipul to heat mass?
run off wood chip?
draft fed off fan to control heat
how much draft does the fire need befor it starts to smoke?
if fan proppeld how long a tube could you use / without smoking??

In that case there would be less incentive to harvest charcoal. However, I don't recommend this due to the dangers involved with high pressure and superheated steam, and the general lack of availability of the hardware involved. Since gas engines are ubiquitous, then it makes sense to stick with gasification for fueling small internal combution engines vs. the steam engine. It's also possible in principle to use the hot top of the drum to power a Stirling engine that could make a small amount of electricity and possibly power a fan for a forced air heating system. Unfortunately, I have yet to see a useful Stirling engine that could be used for this purpose. I mentioned it only because people seem to love these things, but I say forget the Stirling. You can power a gas engine today at 15-20% thermal efficiency on charcoal or wood. You can go fractional hp up to hundreds of hp on charcoal, and 3-5 hp up to hundreds of hp on wood. Until proper and cost effective external combustion systems become available, I say stick to internal combustion.


hi thanks for input , was thinking of more of a gasifier like this to power things
