The Pyrolysis Test

The software interface

We are ready for the run.  We started the test June 18th.  

The pressure hoppers are loaded with a charge which drops into the pressurized feeding hoppers. Robert Flanagan takes the first honor.

Hey mate....why are we getting steam and char particles....???

OH!  The auger is turning backwards!


After a correction on the variable drive and double check of everything. We started up again on July 20th. 

A nice slow start up.

About 15 minutes from introducing biomass, charcoal discharges.

Success!...Step 1...More to come.
