General Discussion / Re: feed in tariff
« on: October 20, 2018, 11:49:10 PM »
I  don't know about the UK, but here in Holland I have solar panels so they expect me to feed back. I have a 3 fase MOTOR hooked up to the lister and it feeds back with minimum losses. And itīs save if the grid is gone the field is gone so no power.
Until now you can feed back what you use and get the full price deduction from your bill if you feed back more... itīs just pennys.
I even use the motor to start the lister.

Never understood why they were rectifieing and than feed it to a solar/wind sunnyboy/windy boy so much losses.

Good answer from glort, the one you propose on ebay is for a woodstove not really suitable. Some people use swimming pool heaters if you can get one cheap give it a try.

AT the moment i am using a old oil cooler with brass pipes inside, it works super and condensates the exhaust gasses. Only thing it clogs up with soot. And it's a ..... to clean.

Next plan, if I ever have time, is to install the inside of a condensing natural gas central heating boiler, it has a drain for the condens and it's sort of made for it.

Greetings Bernhard

Ok made a mistake leave the engine but take out the injector... sorry

The way you describe it seems to me like a stuck injector tip.If you take it out the engine connect it to the fuel line again and turn the engine over you can see a spray and a sqeak noice. If it is pissing fuel thatīs your cause. Even if you turn it over with the injector inside you should here the injector.

But I like your set up look super neat, and especially clean. Really nice,

Hey hello, I meant you have like an add on for your highpressure cleaner so you suc up grid and blast it with the water.

At least it doesn't give the mess.

I spend a lot of time with my VA to get it in  a ready to paint state. I didn't think about it at that time..

Just thinking to start taking apart the 16/2, doesn't take much time and it will reduce the weight a bit, need to move it to a new location promptly.
I'll post some pictures off the disection.

Another thing I was thinking about a high pressure cleaner with sandblasting, anyone experiance with it...

hey glort,

To be honoust I think 300E or 350 us dollar is not to much for a listeroid, if I visit i can judge if it is scrap or still has live. To be honoust I think it is hardly used.
There's a small company here that once ordered a bunch of these engines they still have a few new in box. This is one off them succesfully put on the market.
I have to much engines so I am not in need of other projects. Just if the oppertunity is there I cannot resist.
I'll wait and hope somebody else buys it....

As i understood the video, it's a bunch of guys that are enthousiasts and more or less together they did this. Involved in shipbuilding industrial machinery, sometimes you have some wrongly ordered stuff or something falls of a lorry...
Thats just stuff but the amount of time....
I have been busy with automation off the 'plant' a disaster and a fight but I managed to get somewhere. So I have a small understanding how much time this consumes even if you are a pro in that feeld.

For people interested there is so much interesting stuff to improve your setup. I started with arduino, then esp8266 and now you have the pre desessor esp32. Superpower microcontroller and fairly easy to program.
Problem with me was I got cought up with tech progression, each time there was some new chip that was better.

But for people with an interest it's really easy to read a lot of temperatures and display them somewhere easy and cheap.
The DS18B20 temperature sensor is a 1-wire digital temperature sensor. This means that you can read the temperature with a very simple circuit setup. It communicates on common bus, which means that you can connect several devices and read their values using just one digital pin of the Arduino.


Magic and cheap.

Was also busy with electronic governer, put a substantial amount of neodium magnets on the flywheel with a hallsensor to get a read out witch had some data instead of a few spokes.

Ok enough

Just my 2 cents on noisy reduction. I once worked on a ship with an engineroom of just over 100 Db, Thats enourmous believe me. Even with hearing protection thats not legal. So a team came and they just covered all walls and sealing with rockwool. Nice slabs of rockwool. You could almost take your protection off, amazing. the guy told me we can silence everything. he said just use a labyrinth you can kill any noise.
At home xperimenting with my lister , I could kill the exhaust noise but some deep bass bum bum would remain, you could feel it in your body when you got near the pipe.
I made a 3 chamber labyrinth box , 1,50/0,70/0,70 more or less and the engine is so without any sound it is almost disappointing. Even if you put your ear on the exhaust there is no sound at all.

If you use a spacious box and let the sound run dead in a rockwool labyrinth you will be amazed. For any sound intake or exhaust.

If you look at the lister start o matic setup they have a simillar advice, a labyrith in the ground, big mass that will not rebound any vibration and redirect it a few times and it's  huss.

Hello Bob, To be honoust I also don't know anything about it. Project is called Olm. In germany they were/are promoting combined heat and power from the goverment. So there's a lot of subsidies and garantied feed back prices. So that fuels inovation.
I just read a few days ago even if you have a system that did 50000+ hours you can get an overhaul and get subsidies like it was new.

But of course some home build system is not intitled for support thats why it looks so professional, it is. Think it has to pass some extensive testing to get an approval.
It just one video and a few pictures so most likely it didn't ad up.

You must have seen this one Listeroid CHP european Style, for the cost of the plant you can heat your house for 5 years..

And I know it's impratical and useless but if you here the sound when it revs up, goose bumps.

Just had a look it's just under an hour drive for me, if your really interested I could have a look.
I think from port to port is cheap only the bits inbetween are super expensive.
