I plan to build own reactor based on work of Dr. Parkhomov.
Parts are relatively very cheap and available. First from all I want to build heater that will work for longer periods.
Heater must be driven with electronics.
I plan to build control system based on PI(D) regulation with microcontroller so it can work without any additional stuff.
Maybe I will try DC with pulse width modulation to control temperature so it can work from a different power sources.
Heater Wire: I will start with Kanthal A1 wire or hopefully I can get Super Kanthal that is able to stand even 1900°C continuously.
Heater Ceramic tube: 1x ceramic with min. 99,7% Al2O3 - ∅D = 16mm, ∅d = 12mm, L = 80mm, Tmax = 1800°C
Reactor Ceramic tube: 1x ceramic with min. 99,7% Al2O3 - ∅D = 10mm, ∅d = 5mm, L = 290mm, Tmax = 1800°C
Reactor Ceramic filings: 2x ceramic with min. 99,7% Al2O3 - ∅D = 5mm, L = 100mm, Tmax = 1800°C
Thermocouple: unknown yet, maybe R, S or B?
Do you think that diameters of 10/5mm are fine? What do you suggest?
Thank you Dr. Parkhomov for perfect work, I hope you will continue!
Sharing your findings can make our world much better.
