Wood Gas Producers

Wood Gas Producers

Not a new idea. The first recorded producer was that of Bischof (1839), and 1st gas producer driven vehicle was built by J.W. Parker 1901. The early model producers were very cumbersome & heavy and even today producers are still manufactured along the same lines as the early German designs.

We have developed a much lighter unit and less labour intense. The units are made of 1- 1.6mm galvanized iron. These units can be fitted to your generator set, tractor, motor vehicle, or simply for heating purposes such as water heating, grain drying etc.
