FastOx Gasifier Shell Arrives

Apr 26, 2016

The shell for the FastOx gasifier vessel arrived in Grand Rapids, Michigan today at the shop of our engineering and procurement partner – Andy J. Egan! The vessel arrival marks the beginning of months of hard work for our engineering team and our friends in Michigan.

The next steps will be for Andy Egan’s experienced shop crew to complete the welding of the gasifier vessel and attach the nozzles. The welds must be able withstand the pressure of heating waste to 4,000 °F. To ensure this, they will then perform a ‘hydro’ test to certify that it meets strict codes established by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).

By the end of this welding and testing process, the vessel will be able to withstand the high temperatures and pressures that allow FastOx gasifiers to efficiently convert waste to energy-dense syngas!
