Advice sought for small scale digester in Haiti

Hello,

I have built my first biodigester and have some questions.

It is a very simple design with two plastic drums attached and the feedstock will be cow manure (please see photograph attached). The system is installed just outside Port au Prince in Haiti.

Questions:

How can I seal the plumbing connections at the top to make the air tight? Glue and mastic will break if there is any movement.

The gas will come from the two values at the top. How do I size the pipe? Does it need a filter and water trap?

Can I connect the gas pipe to a conventional gas cooker currently working on LPG? I think I need to make adjustments but please advise.

Many thanks,
Paul Neale

Hello Paul,

meantime, you can visit www.greenheatinternational.com or

very installation type (floating drum digester).
