Abstract:

Bi-reactor open core gasifier was built with the capacity to process approximately 15 kg of briquettes per hour. The reactor was made up of double walled cylindrical body with 300 mm of outer cylinder diameter and 244 mm of inner cylinder diameters excluding the thickness of sheet 6 mm. Both the cylinders were made up of 3 mm M.S. sheet 18 SWG. Another reactor was fabricated with same specifications and both outlets were interconnected. Gate valves were fixed to regulate the air flow rate and control the producer gas. The generated producer gas cleaned by passing through primary cyclone separator and secondary cyclone separator before it was being put into gas burner. After passing through the primary cyclone, the gas still contained dust particles and tar, hence it was further cooled and cleaned by passing through secondary cyclone separator, where in medium sized and fines are removed
