DIY Video : How to build a Simple Woodgas generator for small electric RV generator

This video shows the build of a  Simple Woodgas generator for small electric RV generator.A wood gas generator is able to convert wood, or in our case, wood pellets, into a source of fuel which can be used to generate electricity.The wood or charcoal is turned into wood gas, which will be used for powering our generator. In this tutorial, we are creating a wood gas generator that can be used to power and RV motor.From start to finish, we were able to put together this generator in only four hours. In total, we used less than $100 in parts. It’s a great way to build your own wood gas generator while staying on a tight budget.If done correctly, you should be able to run your generator by burning wood pellets alone. It’s enough to power a small 5 hp electric generator, or even more.

.The materials you need for this project are 20 Gallon Metal Trash can – This will be used to contain the wine cooler and wood chips as they burn,Wine Cooler – This will encase the wood chips as they are burning,Metal Bowl – You will place the wood chips in this bowl and collect the coals as they burn.Filter – This will filter the tar out as it makes its way to the generator,Wood Pellets – Our fuel source.Aluminum Duct Line – This will connect to the gas generator to the wood pellet burning stove.Air Inlet Port – A valve that we can use to let air in as the wood gas travels to the generator.

  • DIY Video:How to build an awesome Roof Top Portable ABS Pipe Hot Water Heater/Shower . Great for Camping/ Outdoors
    This video shows the build of a DIY solar powered, pressurized, roof top water heater and shower.This is done using an ABS 4 inch pipe, 6 feet long, which would give me a capacity of 15 Litres or 4 US gallons.This is an easy and inexpensive project that required minimal tools and just some basic plumbing parts.I started by installing the shutoff valve. I wanted the drain to be as low as possible in the pipe to avoid necessity of having to tilt the system. To ensure the valve retaining nut did not interfere with the pipe once it is glued into the, I positioned the nut away from the wall of the cap using a bolt, which is the same thickness as the wall of the pipe.I drilled out a 2” threaded cap and tapped in a radiator valve drain plug that I picked up at the local automotive parts store. This valve will allow me to release pressure from the tank should that be necessary without opening the drain shutoff. Also when open, this will allow a gravity fed system through the drain valve should for some reason I not have access to the air compressor.As a final step to improve thermal absorption of solar energy, I painted the surface with flat black paint. First I lightly buffed all the ABS surfaces with steel wool soaked Methol Hydrate. Then applied one coat of spray primer followed by two coats of flat black paint.

  • DIY Video : How to build a Thermal siphoning rocket stove for an off grid water system. Clean and efficient burn
    This Video shows the build of a Thermal siphoning rocket stove for an off grid water system. The advantage of the rocket stove is a clean and efficient burn. This system uses 5 metres of 20mm annealed copper pipe, and though I designed the rocket in a J configuration, it worked better as a batch box. There is a vortex generator at the base of the riser and basically I was able to heat 200 litres of cool water straight out of the tap to 67 degrees Celcius / 152.7 F in 1.5 hrs.
