Fluidized Bed Gasifier Product Stream Treatment

Marty Haverly, Blair Knutson, Brooks Knutson

Sponsor: Dordt College engineering department

The project client, Dordt College engineering department, required for this project that a system for collecting the biochar produced by the gasifier be implemented and another system be used to burn the flammable product stream. These designs will allow for a more complete heat transfer calculation, mass balance calculation, and possible future research opportunity for upperclassmen. The biochar will be collected with a stainless steel cyclone and the flare will be a pilot light design using remote ignition and propane for the pilot light fuel.
