Abstract:The present report describes the commissioning of an entrained ow gasification reactor for research on wood gasification. Work is carried out at the University of Lulea at the division of Energy Engineering. A review of entrained flow gasification of wood powder is presented. The design of the gasification reactor which did not work so far is described. Improvements have been made on the fuel feeding by means of pneumatic conveying. The stability and steadyness of mass flow of wood particle is highly improved. Furthermore improvement on leakage control, ignition, safety in general and window panes for optical measurements are made. The reactor has been run with a frame inside for the first time. Results and finding from these testruns are discussed and further improvement are extracted for further work. In principle the reactor is working. However before scientific research can be done more improvement have to be made for safety reasons and more test runs have to be conducted to map out the reactors characteristics.
