Iam new to this forum and wanted to share some ideas.
My forced air retort is introducing too much Nitrogen. This is not a problem for charcoal, hot air and hot water production but worries me when I come to hook up an ICE.
First idea is a nano zeolite bubbler to strip Nitrogen. Normal zeolite columns are used in psa oxygen concentrators.
Filtering and cooling options that interest me are electrostatic,condensing, plasma and possibly bubblers. Maybe the zeolite bubbler could also FILTER.
Plasma. Could the producer gas replace the air feed to a plasma torch..obviously in an oxygen free environment...to thermally crack the gas.
Has anyone actually succeeded with DIY electrostatic or condensing filters ?
I have also given thought to running possibly a masda wankel engine and other spark ignition engines on HOT DIRTY GAS.....anybody given that some thought ? (oxygen is so cheap and easy to make i feel i can crack the volatiles in the combustion chamber). More concerned believe it or not with the volume of the inlet charge at high temperature.
Lastly..and Iam just tipping my toe in the water..realising there are some right clever people on this forum...the Victorians outperformed modern TEGS with bolted iron and copper..albeit large and heavy...but hey..i can make the room. Interested to chat to anyone who has tumbled that TEG design and the seebeck equation completely misses the point.
Anybody wanting to discuss these ideas further may want to kindly start a new topic/thread as I have introduced rather too many ideas at once.
Oh..and anyone else in south of england that actually build stuff...where are you !!!
