A small group meet this afternoon to work on the pyrolyzer. Tasks completed:

  • primary door was made and intended location was marked on barrel
  • holes and round stock was prepared for the grate support to suspend the biomass above the primary air door
  • holes for secondary air were marked with future hole modifications in mind

Goals for next work session (probably Thursday morning):

  • weld primary air door to hinge and hinge to barrel
  • use plasma torch to cut primary air opening at the base of the barrel
  • weld supports for grate to barrel
  • plasma torch the hole in the barrel lid for the chimney
  • drill holes for secondary air into the chimney

And then the first version of DHE pyrolysis kiln will be ready for a test run!
