Here is a perfect example of a machine demo that is not showing you the full truth. There is no reason to cut the video short other than to decieve you.
Please Note: These are not Ben Petersons builds, these our counterfiet versions.
In this example they show the flare and run the engine and the entire video is less than two minutes long. Thats not a demo, dont be fooled they need to show at least 15 minute (and thats really not enough) of sustianable engine running with loading. If they cant show that do not buy it!!
They show a nice blue flare, you know how you can do that?? There are two ways first you can layer enough charcoal in the machine to get it through that time it takes to flare off the machine. Second is; it is actualy pretty typical to produce a flare like that on a cold start up if the machine has ran prior. This is because the fuel from the last run above the reactor has converted to charcoal from shut down after the last time it was ran. Once that burns out and fresh fuel hits that reactor that flare color will change. Ive done it thousands of times.
Then they fire up that little generator but it only runs for about 40 seconds and then the video ends. Why??
Well Ill tell you why, thats probalby only as long as it will run before it stalls out. That little engine can not sustain that large of a gasifier. The blower got it going but that engine is not pulling the volume the blower is. So eventually the reactoins will crash and that engine will just go lower and lower in rpms until the gas is not volitile anymore to keep it running. You will never see one of these gasifier's sustain an engine this small unless they are running charcoal. However that wont work either because eventually the charcoal will clink up and clog that reactor and there is no way to clean it out once past its restriction. The jets will also melt in very short order one hopper load and they will be junk and the unit will need repair.
This right here is why Im doing all these write ups. Its people like this that are painting a false picture of the technology and selling you a product that WILL not live up to thier claims. This is due to thier own ignorance as they dont have the experience. Why do you think the comments are turned off? Its because there are others like me that know better and will call them out. This is not a competitors attempt to shine a bad light onto another competitor. Ive been here myself; however, the difference here is; I am one of the pioneers to bring modern designed gasification systems to commercialization. I had no one before me, there was no path paved for me. Out of all the companies that started back before 2012 all have threw in the towel. There is one company that still exist and you are here right now. I paved this path and I am here today with technology that works based on that 12 years of learning of what dont. This takes years of learning not weeks or months. This machine in the video bellow is that example of what dont work.
