Design and Performance Evaluation of a Variable-Feed Hydrous-Bioethanol Fuel Injector for Retrofitted Engine

Alexis T. Belonio, Manuel Jose C. Regalado, Marvelin L. Rafael, Katherine C. Villota, Phoebe R. Castillo
A variable-feed hydrous-bioethanol fuel injector (VFHBFI) for retrofitted en-gine was designed and evaluated to provide a technology that would allow spark-ignition engines commonly used by farmers be fuelled with hydrous bio-ethanol from nipa. With this technology, farmers can make use of their farm resources to fuel their engines making them less dependent on imported fossil fuel. The VFHBFI consists o

Development of an Appropriate Rice-Based Biomass Gasifier as Source of Power for Farm Use

Alexis T. Belonio, Manuel Jose C. Regalado, Phoebe R. Castillo
An appropriate rice-based (ARB) biomass gasifier was designed and de-veloped for farmers’ use. The gasification properties of rice-based biomass were determined before doing the design. The gasifier was built using salvage petrol drums, metal bars and concrete as primary construction materials. It has a 30 cm-diameter reactor insulated with refractory cement. A 10 cm-o cross flow scrubber with 30 cm-thick packed-bed filter is used

Semi-Auto-Open Portable Electric Vulcanizer (SAO-PEV): An Innovation

E. Z. Ramis
In this 3rd study—Semi-Auto-Open Portable Electric Vulcanizer (SAO-PEV) is to minimize the delayed opening of the vulcanizing head for releasing and removing the vulcanized rubber tire and to eradicate the haphazard operation after the post vulcanization process. This machine is made of steel materials with GI pipes gauge 20 with a configuration of an elongated letter “C” with a mica heating element that were attached to the vulcanizer head and the Electronic Control Unit (ECU); thus,...
