Burkhardt wood gas cogeneration system with 50 kW elektrical outputTechnology

The V 4.50 works according to the same principle as its big technical brother, the V 3.90, namely by way of parallel flow gasification, during which fuel and air are fed to the gas reactor from below in a controlled way and are dosed with such precision that the pellets fluidise in certain areas without being carried away. Due to the uniform size of the wood pellets, the fluidised bed stabilises on its own. An efficient gas-Otto CHP takes over the electricity generation from the wood gas.


The Burkhardt V 4.50 is manufactured in a modular design. The gas reactor, gas heat exchanger, gas filter, and all other relevant components are mounted on the base plate of the gasifier and piped ready for connection. The dust storage of the flare line is also attached to the base plate, saving space. Since no condensate is produced in the V 4.50, there is no need for a collecting tank. The same is true for a shavings screen, since the accruing shavings are also burnt within the reactor.

Consuming approximately 40kg/h, the system generates about 50kW of electricity and about 110kW of heat respectively. This means that 1kg of wood pellets yields 1.25kW of electricity and 2.75kW of heat.
