The above mentioned designs can be adapted to a smaller setup. We have a subforum dedicated to small engines. Large generators will be more like automotive applications, with some added automation to keep things running smoothly.

Our intent was to provide a LEGO kit of gasification to spark new work and new conversation in the relatively uneventful field of biomass thermal conversion. Over the following years we were amazed at the interest these kits generated globally, and the acceleration of collaborative research and knowledge exchange that followed. We ultimately found that a gasifier based power generation system—one that actually delivers on its value proposition—requires an integration of components and high level automation that a raw DIY kit cannot provide.
Thus for years we have said no to the continuing requests for these kits, and instead directed people to our full power generation systems. Or considered from the other direction, the new GEK Gasifier kit is the complete Power Pallet minus the engine, genhead, engine governor, and various engine related accessories.
The new kit comes completely assembled, skidded and commissioned, not as raw parts for you to puzzle together. No, we still cannot sell the raw gasifier without the automation. However, with our full automation system still intact, these systems remain complete, integrated, and enabling hands off operation. It is not trivial, but it is doable by your typical enthusiast of rotating machinery. You will need to set up the genset governor, route the engine exhaust back through the pyrocoil for the externally driven pyrolysis of the GEK TOTTI design, and run various wires and instruments from the engine back to the automation PCU.
In particular, OEM manufacturers have asked us for years to source everything except the engine genset, as they wanted to optimize around a local engine and genhead offering. The total design was changing too rapidly to do this previously. Now it is stable and mature enough to support these types of OEM use scenarios The system ships complete and ready to run after minor reinstall of hopper and flare.
Every system includes the GEK v5. To place an order or to learn more, contact our Sales Team. We expect to ship days from time of order.
