Abstract
PRESENT SMALL SCALE GASIFIER FILTER SYSTEMS ARE BULKY AND MESSY TO SERVICE. THEY OFTEN GIVE PROBLEMS DURING OPERATION. IN A RECENT GASIFIER FILTER TESTING SERIES USING AN IN-STACK CASCADE IMPACTOR, NEW PRODUCER GAS PARTICULATE INFORMATION WAS SECURED. THIS NEW INFORMATION MAY LEAD TO SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENT IN SMALL GASIFIER PARTICLE COLLECTION SYSTEMS. THIS PROJECT IS TO DETERMINE THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF A NEW PARTICLE COLLECTION SYSTEM USING PARALLEL MINI-CYCLONES IN A SYSTEM DESIGNED BY AN EXPERIENCED AEROSOL ENGINEER. THE SYSTEM WILL BE BUILT AND FIELD TESTED BY ROCKY CREEK FARM GASOGENS, INC., A FAMILY OWNED SMALL BUSINESS CURRENTLY ENGAGED IN SMALL SCALE GASIFICATION RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT. TESTING WILL BE BOTH STATIONARY USING AN IN-STACK CASCADE IMPACTOR AND IN THE FIELD UNDER ACTUAL WORKING CONDITIONS. THE ANTICIPATED RESULT OF THE PROJECT IS TO SECURE THE NECESSARY RESEARCH INFORMATION TO PROVIDE A BASIS FOR FURTHER DEVELOPMENT OF SMALL SCALE BIOMASS FUELED TRACTORS, LIGHT TRUCKS AND ENGINES.
