Compressor for smoke generator

Dymogenerator for cold smoking with his own hands: drawing

The drawing up drawing is the necessary preparatory stage that allows you to perform the appropriate calculations and designate them on paper. The scheme necessarily refers to the smoke generator body, which can have a round or square shape.

The housing of the self-made smoke generator is used as a chamber that is filled with fuel. The walls of the device must necessarily have good tightness. Otherwise, smoke formed by the decline of sawdust will dissipate into the surrounding space.

To make a smoke generator for cold smoking with their own hands you need to use drawings

Devices for smoking products themselves are divided into varieties depending on design features and destination. Today you can find overall stationary devices or, on the contrary, more compact, portable. In the design of the crypton can be present damper. This element allows you to increase the inflow of air into the chamber that contains fuel.

The homemade crypting smoked smoke can have two fireboxes. This design is aimed at an increase in thrust in the system. Smoke generators are used both in hot and cold smoking. In the drawing, all components of the device elements are indicated. Be sure to make an ejector and sizes in the circuit, as well as the compressor.

How to make a smoke generator with your own hands: Production of ejector

Ejector is a device that is a tube and is used to create the desired traction in the smoke generator. This device is classified at the location. Depending on this factor, two types of ejectors can be distinguished:

lower;

Any smoke smoke generator consists of a container, pump (compressor) and ejector.

top.

The first option is not recommended by specialists for smoking, manufactured personnel. This is due to the fact that this placement prevents the influx of air, which, accordingly, is reflected in the design in the design. The tubes installed at the bottom require constant control, which is not very convenient. When drawing the drawing of the smoke generator, it is necessary to think over the location of this tube in advance and fix it in the figure.

Avoid problems with the burden is quite simple. All that is needed for this is to express the ejector in the upper half of the smoke generator. Such a move has several advantages. Installing the ejector in the upper part contributes to an increase in the volume of the combustion zone. The fuel, located inside the chamber, is slower slower in this case, and also decreases the likelihood that it will go out.

This is how the ejector is assembling for the smoke generator with their own hands. Drawing, photo and step-by-step instructions - All this allows you to perform a competent assembly of this product.

What makes a compressor for the smoke generator with your own hands?

The compressor is considered one of the most important details of the device that generates smoke for smoking products. It can be purchased separately, then attach to the design. But most often for these purposes, various infringement materials are used, which can be found in each apartment or house.

Article on the topic:

The supercharge of air can be performed from the old cooler. This computer part is not suitable for increasing the air intake into the design. It is necessary to respect the procedure for the cooler transformation into the compressor.

First of all, it will be necessary to take a plastic bottle and trim its upper part. Next, with the help of glue, an fan should be attached to the inside of the cropped plastic element. On the other hand (to the neck) the hose is connected. The second tube output is connected to the smoke generator. This design is perfectly coping with its function. The only minus it lies in a non-sufficient appearance.

The compressor for the smoke generator can be performed from the old computer part - cooler

Another common option is to purchase aquarium compressor for the smoke generator. Many people note that the device for the production of smoke can work without a compressor. But the effectiveness of such an installation is lower, as the air enters it naturally.

Thus, it is recommended to collect a compressor to increase productivity. Moreover, it is not necessary that he has a complex design. A simple fan for the smoke generator will greatly simplify smoking, and its production goes no more than an hour.

Why do you need a smoke smoke generator

There are 2 main cooking methods using smoke: cold and hot. The design of the cabinet for both options varies on the construction and functionality. For hot processing, not only smoke is used, but also heat that gives chips or firewood. For this process, the temperature inside the mechanism reaches from 50 to 120 ° C. This method of cooking is faster than cold, but during processing most often all useful substances are destroyed. The dish with this method will be suitable for use 2-3 hours after the start of the process.

Cold smoking, like hot, for cooking uses smoke from chips. But with this method, the temperature inside the cabinet does not rise above 35-40 ° C. Because of this, most useful trace elements are stored inside the products. The processing process of food lasts from 1 to 3 days. This allows you to keep food suitable for use for 3-5 weeks.

What is smoke generator smoke

The smoke generator scheme is simple. So you understand what we are talking about, look at the photo below. It clearly shows how this device works.

It turns out that between the camera of smokehouse, where firewood is smoldering, and the camera in which meat products are hung, the cylindrical device is installed. It has a nozzle with a tap inside, through which air is served under low pressure. Creating a stream moving toward the second smokehouse chamber, the air pulls over and smoke from the combustion chamber of the smoke generator. At the same time, the smoke is completely absorbed, without staying on the walls and without going beyond the combustion chamber. That is, this is the most effective form of smoke consumption, practically without loss.

So here is a combustion chamber with an intermediate element that creates a directional flow of air mixture with smoke, and is a smoke generator. It is clear that the larger the volume of the combustion chamber, the longer the process of smoking will occur. If we talk about household installations, then for this you can use various household items. For example, an aluminum dairy bidonchik, a used fire extinguisher, an old outstanding thermos. But the optimal solution is a smoke generator for cold smoking from a steel pipe with a diameter of 80-100 mm half a meter.

On the one hand it is tightly covered with a lid, it is done with welding. On the other, leave open, only with a side is made semi-permanent (round, rectangular), which will be used to ignite chips. With side, the hole is also made to which the nozzle is joined. Through it and the air will be drunk. By the way, to create a directional air flow under pressure will need to purchase an air compressor. For example, the one that is used in aquariums. Here is an uncomplicated smoke generator device.

Now, with regard to the location of this pipe. It should be closer to the burning zone of fuel or vice versa. The optimal option is if the nozzle is above, that is, away from the burning zone. The thing is that during the return installation there are several negative actions.

  • First, the combustion chamber is limited in height. And this is a direct cause of frying firewood.
  • Secondly, the intense flow suction leads to rapid fuel combustion, which reduces the period of operation of the smoke agent.
  • Thirdly, the thrust inside the smokehouse decreases, especially when the compressor is turned off.
  • Fourthly, low landing of the nozzle creates conditions under which the unlawful chip falls inside. And it overlaps the passage.
  • Fifth, low landing is the location of the nozzle in the high temperature zone, which reduces its working resource.

The intermediate element of the smoke element is also part of the smoke generator, you can make from conventional pipes with a diameter of 20-25 mm. You can simply welcome it to the combustion chamber of the smoke generator and to the smokehouse chamber, and in the interval, install the nozzle from the same pipe to which a smaller diameter tube is welded. Through it will be supplied to the air smoke generator from the compressor.

In principle, the intermediate part can be different. Here are just some variations:

  1. The connection of two pipes by carving, where the fitting is set in the form of a tee between them. In a free hole, a split is inserted into which the adapter from the pipe on the hose is screwed. Through the connected hose and air will be supplied to the smoke generator.
  2. Instead of the hose you can solder a copper tube.
  3. Install from above combustion chamber fitting Tee across the installed camp. One side of the fitting will be directed to the chamber, where the products are hung, air will be served in the second.

Some modifications of such a connection are shown in the photo below.

By the way, and the method of fastening the nozzles to the combustion chamber of the smoke generator for the smoked smoking smoked smoking can be made not only with welding or soldering. On the same photo, a threaded fastening is clearly visible. That is, options, how to make a smoke generator a lot. But the device made correctly will serve faithfully for many years.

Master class: how to make a simple smoke generator with your own hands

The easiest smoke generator can be made with their own hands from three tin cans. Here is a small master class with detailed photos:

Photo Description of work
For the smoke generator, you will need to connect two tin cans. One of them needs to cut bottom. Use metal tape and iron clamps to fasten the jars.
In the bottom bank with a bottom, make two holes opposite each other. They will be required for the ignition of chips and oxygen access.
The third bank is selected so that it is a little less than two in size. An opening of this diameter makes itself in its donkey so that the tee can be installed.
The tee is fixed with the nut from the inside. Tighten the fastening tightly, the efficiency of the device depends on its tightness.
On one of the sides of the tee, screw the Sgon with a small diameter tube. Use the FUM tape to seal the connection.
For ejector, a thin copper tube of small diameter will be required. On the one hand, a silicone air supply hose is fixed on the tube.
Insert the tube as shown in the photo. She should perform from the opposite side of the tee for a couple of centimeters. Tube entry place compact with a gasket or clutch.
Screw the suitable diameter tube into the free hole of the tee, sufficient to connect to the smoke container.
The resulting design is an ejector. It will provide smoke in smoke.
In the main container of two cans fall asleep about 2/3.
The ejector is fixed on top and tightly fixed in the device.
The silicone hose is connected to the compressor. In our case, an aquarium compressor with an adjustment of air supply is used.
Poggig chips are carried out through the lower holes of the design. It is convenient to use the gas burner for this purpose.
Do not forget that you can install the design only on a non-flammable stand. From the bottom can be pushed as chip.
With the enabled compressor, the smoke generator will immediately give the fragrant smoke.
If you have not yet acquired a smoking chamber, use a simple cardboard box. It can be sprinkled in the needles. Do not forget to make a small hole for the exit smoke. Thus, you have a simple cold smoking smoke with a smoke generator, made with your hands from girlfriend.

Compressor

Cold smoked generator is most often done using the compressor. This element is needed to strengthen the stream of smoke and the rapid beat it through the pipes. Camera for cooking can function and without this device, but then the air flow will depend on the design of the natural thrust, which does not most often give the desired effect. Because of this, food can proceed badly, and its preparation period will increase.

To drive smoke on the channel, compressors from aquarium are used, as they give good craving and are relatively small. Also for these purposes can be used a computer cooler. To do this, cut a plastic bottle near the bottom and to glue the fan into the resulting hole. On the neck of the bottle, the hose is worn, which is connected to the ejector. The lack of such a device is its appearance, as it looks not very beautiful.

Compressor for aquarium wrench MMEDIA.Ozone.ru

The homemade smoke generator is recommended to do with the use of the compressor, the power of which reaches from 1.5 to 2 liters per minute. You should also select a model with the possibility of regulating the flow, as this can help achieve different results when smoked. To connect the ejector and the compressor, plastic or rubber tubes are used, as well as the fitting to which they are attached.

Speed ​​of compressors for smokehouse

To choose to choose it, initially it is worth considering the design solutions of this device:

From a computer cooler

It is suitable for cold smoking a small amount of products. Performance can be adjusted by the potentiometer, and as a power source, you can use the telephone charger, a computer power supply or capacious batteries.

If briefly about the manufacture, then the fan, it is the cooler, you must put in the receiver, which will be a source of small overpressure. Plastic bottle or canister will be an excellent solution for these purposes.

Aquarium compressor for the smoke generator

A device that can immediately connect without applying structural manipulations. Just connect the hose, which often comes in the kit, and stick the plug into the network 220V. An important nuance is the presence of air supply adjustment to the smoke generator. More expensive models are regularly equipped with such adjustment, but if there is no such possibility in the existing supercharger, then use the standard throttle or transfers. When choosing, the optimal air flow parameters range from 3 to 10 l / min.

From the refrigerator or car

Their performance will allow efficiently working with a large volume of products and more productive smoke generators. In this case, a dual-tire barrel or an old refrigerator will become a smoking chamber for smoking.

If you want to create a more versatile product, you can make an automatic system connecting the compressor with the receiver. The perfect receiver will be a pipe DU 100 with steel plugs on sides and welded fittings for the input and output of air, condensate drain and pressure switch. The pressure relay can be connected to the receiver, while setting the maximum and minimum pressure limits, which in turn will give signals to the control device of the air supercharger. The logic is as follows: the pressure in the receiver is equal to the minimum (which is set on the pressure relay) - turn on the compressor, the pressure is maximum to turn off. Thanks to such a system, the supercharger will live longer, since with constant work, the life resource is reduced very quickly. To supply air from the receiver to the smoke generator, the throttle and pneumatic hose should be used.

The main advantage of such a system is that once pumped by a 10 liter receiver to 5 bar, when the smoke generator is consumed 5 l / min, the air reserve is enough for 10 minutes of work until the next compressor is turned on.

Piston industrial type

The above-described control system has already been implemented in this device, and all you have remains, so this is a purchase filter, choke and pneumaticlang. Since most of these devices have an oil lubricant with a piston pair, it is possible to enter the receiver in the receiver. The filter is perfectly cope with such a problem, and the choke will make it possible to finely adjust the air supply.

Dymogenerator do it yourself

In order to make a smoke smoke generator with their own hands, you can watch ready-made drawings.

They will help while working. The scheme of the smoke generator will serve as an assistant throughout all stages of construction structure.

All of them have a cylindrical body of metal. It is placed in solid fuel, where it is torture. It is thanks to the slow burning of the chips in the case, a rich smoke is formed. Different wood inclusions are used as a fuel for the smoke generator: apple tree, pear and other breeds.

In order for the chips to burn slowly, it needs to be in a special way. To ignite raw materials at the bottom of the case, the hole is mounted.

The smoke is formed in the heat generator firebox. The process may result in two in different ways:

  • The flow of air flows slowly in the smoke generator body, thanks to which the fuel is smoldering. The damper on the design window allows you to adjust the oxygen supply level.
  • Two cameras are arranged in the design. Under the powder chamber, place a place for fuel, and the fuel is placed on the metal pallet. Due to this location, the smoke comes into the upper chamber.

In the smoking chamber, the meat is located at different levels. Following the smoke, the tank and the products in it are soaked in the smell

It is important to carefully track this process. Easy smoking helps gas and electric furnaces

Important! In order for the combustion products did not spoil the taste of delicacies on the smoke generator body, install a special tap

How to make a copper compressor with your own hands

To force the air into the smoke generator, you can use any device capable of creating a stream. In this case, there will be enough device with a power of 4 W.

From cooler PC

The cheapest and simple version of the compressor, which will provide a smoke generator with air, can be made of a cooler, that is, from an ordinary computer fan. With the volume, any fan is suitable for 40x40 mm to 120x120 mm.

Tip! It is better to choose a cooler of maximum sizes to ensure good smoke generator performance.

To assemble air supercharged for smokehouse, you will need to prepare the following components:

  • cooler suitable power and size;
  • 5-10 liter plastic capacity, you can use a plastic bottle or canister;
  • plumbing fittings;
  • polypropylene, copper or stainless steel tube with a length of about 25 cm and a diameter of 25 mm;
  • variable resistor or power supply with voltage regulator;
  • Saws.

The method of producing air supercharged is simple.

  1. Cut a hole in the tank corresponding to the size of the cooler. If a plastic canister is used, the hole can be cut with an electroll q.
  2. Insert the cooler into the hole and secure it either using the adhesive gun, or self-drawing or bolts.
  3. Next, do the hole in the capacitance cover to install the nozzle to it, to which the tube leads to the smoke generator will be connected. All connections must be maximally sealed.
  4. Taking advantage of water fittings, secure the tube on the canister or plastic bottle lid.
  5. Connect the fan to the power source of 5-12 V.

Tip! To adjust the cooler speed, you can use the usual variable resistor, which is installed between the power supply and the fan. An ideal option can be considered a power supply that has a voltage regulator, for example, from a television antenna.

To increase the power of the air flow, you can make a fan unit consisting of several coolers.

From the targeted fan

Make a compressor for smokehouse can also be from the guide fan. The manufacturing process is not much different from the same actions using a cooler from PC.

Only instead of connecting the device to the power supply, the fantal fan for the compressor is connected to the 220 V network as an alternative to the fitting fan, an exhaust cooler for the bathroom is suitable.

From aquarium compressor

Aquarium compressor can be applied to the cold smoking smoke. But you should know that only a certain type of device is suitable for this purpose, that is, an active compressor. This type of devices is distinguished by an outer installation and have one or 2 output tubes.

The device is connected to the smoke generator is very simple: it is enough to insert the output hose of the device into the ejector of the generator ejector and turn on the device. If there are 2 tubes from aquarium compressor, they should be combined in one channel and the last to connect with the fitting. It will be fine if the aquarium supercharger will be equipped with a regulator of air supply.

From the compressor from the refrigerator

If desired, the air blower for smoke generator can be made from the compressor from the refrigerator. But in this case, the accumulative capacity (receiver) will be connected to the aggregate, which can be made of a metal pipe of a large diameter, an old fire extinguisher or gas cylinder.

Air supply to the smoke generator from a storage tank occurs by means of a pneumatic hose.

From autocompressor

To ensure air flow to the ejector, you can use the usual car compressor. But this unit has one drawback: it cannot work for a long time without stopping because of strong overheating.

But still adapt the autocompressor to work with the smoke generator is possible. It will be necessary to connect to the device the receiver with a pressure sensor, as in the case of the unit from the refrigerator.

After raising the pressure in the receiver to a certain value, the press service will turn off the engine of the machine for a while until the air is spent and run it again to accumulate air in the container. In this mode, the autocompressor will not overheat and will be able to provide a smoke generator of air flow over the day and more.

What to watch when choosing

We advise you to pay attention to the following details to make the most profitable purchase:

  • Camera volume. It should be no more than 20 liters. Big cameras require a more powerful source of smoke.
  • Type of smoke generator. There are four of them all:
  1. Electric. Wide use in industry due to their practicality. The temperature in the chamber rises to 300 degrees, then the device turns off and pinch begin to smooth. After the process repeats the required number of times.
  2. Split. After loading, the chips falls on the electrical spiral, reaching 250 degrees, pinchs begin to smooth and highlight about 50 degrees.
  3. Elegant. These are smoke generators with an ejector-tube to create thrust in the device. The ejector can be at the top and bottom of the unit.
  4. Friction. In the model of this type, the electric motors rotate the cylinder with pressed from above BR. In the process of friction, smoke is allocated, which subsequently falls into the tank.

Wall thickness. The durability and reliability of the device depends on this parameter. The optimal thickness is from 1.5 mm. Ideally - 2 mm and thicker.

Appearance. This parameter depends on the materials from which the device is done. Stainless steel looks good, it has a long service life and is easily cleaned.

Pipe for feeding smoke. For cold smoking, you need a pipe of at least two meters with an angle of inclination of 20-35 degrees.

Tank cap. To ensure your security, we advise you to prefer wooden lid. It does not heat up in the chip process.

Autonomy of work. If the plans to use the device in nature, then it is better to choose a model with a manual ignition. A device with automatic ignition is suitable for home use.

Easy design

Pay attention to the models with a removable bottom. It will very simplify the process of cleaning the device.

Method of filing smoke

It is better if the nozzle is located at the bottom of the apparatus, it will take less chip consumption, and harmful resins from condensate, assembled under the lid, will not fall on the products in the tank. With this method, the feed smoke will faster in the smokehouse. If the compressor turns off, the chips will not go out due to the coincidence of the direction of natural thrust and the chimney.

Chip. Without this material, the operation of the smoke generator is impossible, so this item also needs to pay due attention. Not all kinds of wood are suitable. When burning, the tree highlights the substances affecting the taste of the finished product. Alder, aspen, ash, beech, oak, apple tree, apricot, pear and sweet cherry are perfect for smoke generators. The coniferous varieties of trees are not recommended, as their resins give bitter food.

Equipment. Make sure that in the package there were all the necessary items: compressor and hoses for its connection, fastening bolts, timer, smoking, turbo beam and chip.

Instructions and recipes. With a similar set, you will be easier for you to master the management of the new device.

Device and work Smokelni with a smoke generator and compressor

In general, the smokehouse consists of a hermetic chamber for smoking, a device, injecting air, and a smoke generator. Home handicraft apparatus costs without a compressor. In it, the role of the smoke generator is a pit with a subordinate fire. Smoke is output and cooled through a pipe or a ditch in the ground. Such a device is suitable for cottages or private houses, it is impossible to use it in the apartments.

Schematic diagram of smokehouse with a smoke generator and compressor looks like this. To the chamber in which the products are prepared, the generator is connected through the chimney. A compressor hose is connected to the inlet of the smoke generator, and sawdust with chips are placed in the combustion chamber and ignite. The supercharger creates a air flow, due to which there is a vacuum in the smoke generator. Under its exposure, smoke moves towards the smoke chamber and processes products.

It should be remembered that the more powerful an electric device, the stronger the air flow, which means that the fuel consumption.

How to choose a compressor for a smoke generator

First you need to know what processes correspond to the compressor. It creates an effect of ejection, that is, the flow of air, which is sent to the smoke chamber, which is mixed with the smoke.

When choosing a compressor, you need to pay attention to such details:

  • efficiency;
  • price;
  • performance;
  • the ability to easily find parts;
  • maintainability;
  • simplicity of design;
  • manufacturer.

With the price and manufacturer, everything is clear - Chinese compressors are unlikely to surprise you with their quality and durability. As you know, the miser pays twice, so it is better to purchase goods a good and expensive brand. A poor-quality compressor can easily spoil the taste of meat.

Economicity - it is clear that when working the compressor consumes electricity, and this is an important item. It still depends on the frequency you are going to use the device.

Mainly industrial compressors buy for large batches of products, for example, for business. Therefore, if you want to prepare meat into your pleasure, then there is no need to buy a massive device.

Compressor for smoke generator

For different holidays and simply without reason, all without exception love to enjoy smoked meat or fish. After all, along with an incredible taste, such dishes also have an easy-minded aroma. However, not everyone can afford to buy such delicacies in the store. In most cases, in most cases the quality of such shopping products often leaves much to be desired. That is why many delicacies lovers prefer to smoke meat on their own at home.

For this, it is not at all necessary to spend large financial funds for the purchase of smokehouse, and you can collect such a device yourself from the girlfriend. So, for the arrangement of cabinets for smokers, any containers are used, ranging from ordinary canisters and ending with the body from the old refrigerator.

How does the smokehouse work?

There is a huge number of different models of smoking equipment. Classic smokehouse consists of several key components:

  • Smokecam.
  • Smoke generator.
  • Compressor.

Moreover, the normal functioning of the device and successful smoking depends largely on the operation of the compressor for the smoke generator. The main purpose of the compressor is to create an ejection. In particular, this device provides air supply to the smoke generator, from which this air-smoke mix and enters the smoke chamber. Thus, thanks to this device and the process of smoking is ensured.

Basic compressor requirements

Selection of the optimal compressor model for homemade smoke installation - the task is quite complicated, as it is necessary to take into account the mass of factors and nuances. To achieve the maximum effect during the smoking procedure, the compressor must meet certain requirements. In particular, this device should:

  • Function continuously in a certain mode for 7 - 8 hours.
  • Different with economy and consume a minimum amount of electricity.
  • Have the ability to adjust the performance.
  • Cost enough cheaply.
  • Easy and easy to install and repair.

Of course, the average manual after reading the list of such requirements may come just horrified and fully disperse in the possibility of self-realization of this idea. However, in fact, everything is much easier than it seems and in the presence of the simplest tools and basic knowledge in electrical engineering, it is possible to collect such a compressor unit very quickly.

Popular types of compressors

The most popular types of compressors for homemade smoke equipment are considered:

To connect such a device, you will not need to do any additional manipulations. To install, you just need to fix the hose and connect to the power grid. The main disadvantage of such aquarium compressors is considered extremely small performance and weak maintainability. They are also not equipped with air supply regulators. However, for these purposes, you can use a standard choke or transfers.

  • Compressor from refrigerator or car.

The power of such devices is enough for smoking large volumes of products, and a 200-liter barrel or a box from the old refrigerator can be used as a container in these settings. In such an apparatus, you can very quickly smoke a huge amount of meat or fish. However, the use of such industrial smokehouses at home is unprofitable and inexpedient, but for commercial activities, this equipment is just perfect.

The most practical and cheap compressor option for the smoke generator is the standard cooler from the computer system unit. Naturally, visually such a device looks not presents, but in terms of performance, it can give odds to many purchased models. In addition, such a compressor can be easily assembled at home independently, without resorting to the help of masters.

Features of the compressor installation of a computer cooler

Fan selection subtleties

In order to collect a compressor for the smoke generator and develop a phased plan for the implementation of this project, its basic principles of operation and tasks should be taken into account, for the execution of which this device is intended. The main task of such a device consists in the formation of a constant low pressure air flow, which is necessary to create an injection effect in the smoke generator. Moreover, its performance depends on the size of the combustion chamber directly. For example, if its volume is less than 3 liters, then for the normal functioning of the smoke generator, 1-2 m³ / min is quite enough. In this case, the fan is perfect for 100-300 W. Of course, for a large-volume camera, a fan will need much greater performance.

Ideal for these purposes, axial models of computer coolers are suitable in a special building (they can be much easier and faster than radial analogs). Such fans are standard sizes that make up:

  • 40x40;
  • 60x60;
  • 70x70;
  • 80x80;
  • 92x92;
  • 120x120.

At the same time, to achieve the maximum performance of the smoke generator, it is necessary to use the coolers of the largest size.

Tools and components

To build such a simple device, you must pre-acquire:

  • Computer cooler (set power).
  • Plastic canister from under oil.
  • Sealed capacity of about 10 liters.
  • Coolant.
  • Resistor of variable resistance.
  • Plumbing fittings.
  • Tube made of polypropylene, copper or stainless steel, with a diameter of 25 mm and a length of 20-25 cm.
  • Several bolts (2-3 mm diameter).

Also during the installation process will need to be done certain manipulations:

  • electric bison;
  • soldering iron;
  • electric drill;
  • gas and horn key;
  • screwdriver.

Subtleties of mounting

  • Initially, in a canister or some other capacity, with the help of an electroly batch, a hole should be cut down the size of the cooler.
  • Then the fan insert into the hole and the bolts are firmly fixed to the container. In order to avoid unwanted vibration during the operation of the device, it is necessary to ensure the maximum level of compound tightness. You can install the cooler on any fabric of the capacity, but experts recommend doing it on one of the narrow sides. In this case, during operation, the device is practically no noise and steadily functions.
  • Next, you need to do a hole in the tank for the installation of a flexible outlet, which is connected directly to the smoke generator. In order to ensure the proper operation of this unit, it is necessary to ensure maximum tightness of the compound. Also, for designs with great performance, you can use for these purposes and a metal tube that will need to be connected to the generator housing with bolts.

In the event that the generator power does not meet the necessary parameters, it is recommended to install an additional cooler on the container or change the fan to a more productive model. You can also put a container of a smaller volume.

How to adjust the cooler speed?

To adjust revolutions and, accordingly, the performance of the compressor, the resistor of the variable resistance is best suited, connected to the power system of the cooler. Installation of such a regulator will not be much difficult for any little, understanding in man's electrical engineering. Some models of the fans have standard modes of functioning L, M or H, to adjust the latitude and pulse modulation system. Although however, an ordinary resistor is perfectly suitable for normal operation.

Thus, if desired, it is possible without any effort and significant financial costs to independently make a compressor for homemade smoking. Moreover, it is necessary to have several simple tools in the presence of this task and have elementary skills.

One of the important components of the smoke is a compressor for the smoke generator. You can purchase such settings in the ready-made form in the store. They are usually intended to maintain aquarium farm. But such compressors are different or too low, or quite high cost. Pick up a suitable model for smokehouse is quite difficult.

The output will be an independent manufacture of the compressor. To do this, there is no need to acquire some complex tools and materials. It will be enough for those that you can find in your own arsenal. Under the smoking closet, you can accommodate a variety of tanks, we usually perform instrumental and weapons safes, furniture walls or old refrigerators.

Making a cooler compressor

Compressor for smoke generator

The smoke generator has a fan block, structurally not too complicated. Its appearance, of course, may not be very presentable, but by functionality he wins in most factory structures. The compressor for the smoke generator must correspond to some characteristics, among them should be allocated:

  • low electricity consumption;
  • low cost;
  • availability of compound parts;
  • the possibility of long-term work;
  • maintainability;
  • Availability of performance adjustment.

The compressor must have the ability to work up to 8 hours in a certain mode. With such requirements for the quality of the design, it may be impossible to make a good compressor of the required power. However, it is not. If you have at least minimal skills of working with a tool and have knowledge of the foundations of electrical engineering, then create a fan unit for the smoke generator in a few hours.

Preparation of materials

Compressor for smoke generator smoke

If you decide to make a compressor for the smoke generator, then some materials should be prepared, among them it is worth highlighting:

  • cooler from the computer;
  • plumbing fittings and tees;
  • segment of a metal or polypropylene tube;
  • bolts;
  • plastic canister;
  • Resistor variable resistance.

Preparing the canister, you can take the one in which oil, building fluids, coolant or other mixtures were stored. The main thing is that the tank of the tank is equal to about 10 liters. The tube can be made of the following materials:

  • stainless steel;
  • aluminum;
  • copper.

The main thing is that the diameter of the tubes is 25 mm, and their length can vary in the range from 20 to 25 cm. Preparing bolts, it is necessary to choose the diameter of which is equal to the limit of 2 to 3 mm. The compressor for the smoke generator is also manufactured using some tools, namely:

  • electrolovka;
  • screwdrivers;
  • soldering clothes;
  • Gas key from a drill.

Routing

Compressor smoked smoked megery generator

In order to develop a sequence of operations, you should familiarize yourself with the principle of the compressor. The main task is to create low-pressure air flow, which is capable of forming the injection effect. Such a stream will be effective as far as the volume of the combustion chamber of the generator is. If it does not exceed 3 l, then it will be enough performance in 2 m 3/ min. Such work will be able to provide a fan with a power ranging from 100 to 300 W.

If the camera will have a more impressive volume, the fan must also be used more powerful. Standard dimensions of axial coolers are equal to the limit of 40x40 to 120x120 mm. For a smoke generator, which will work with high efficiency, it is necessary to prefer the maximum size fan. The need for electricity in such a device will be insignificant, but the performance will be sufficient.

Recommendations of a specialist

what compressor for the smoke generator

When the compressor is manufactured for the smoke generator of the smokehouse, you must consider that the axial-type fans are suitable for the block in the case. Radial will not be so productive, and their installation will be uncomfortable. The fan must be placed in the slots canister, which must match the size of the case. Fastening is carried out by bolts.

The connection must be maximally sealed and durable. It will relieve unwanted vibrations. The fan can be installed on any edge canister, but it is better to do it on one of the narrow. It will be reduced stability, but the strength will be higher, and noise will be reduced. Canister is needed to align the flow pressure, in addition, it performs the receiver functions. The flow at the outlet will be quite stable.

Methods of work

Compressor for cold smoked smoke generator

If you decide to make a smoking smoked compressor, then the outlet must be located in the neck. The main requirement is that the nozzle must be sealed to exclude air leakage by the hose. Sometimes the air duct happens hard, it is mounted with a generator body with a threaded compound. Such a solution is relevant for high-power designs.

How to avoid mistakes

Compressor for the smoke generator do it yourself

If during the tests you did not achieve the desired compressor performance, it is possible to add it another fan, replacing existing on more powerful. As an alternative solution, there is a replacement of the canister for a container with a large volume. If you still do not know which compressor for the smoke generator to choose or manufacture, then you should know that the turnover and power of the device will be adjusted by the resistor of variable resistance. It is included in the fan power system. Its installation will not be accompanied by difficulties.

Some models of fans operate in fixed modes adjustable by the latitude and pulse modulation system. On the transistors to collect the scheme just enough if you have skills to work with the soldering iron. But for homemade crypting of cold smoking there will be a fairly ordinary resistor.

Council of the specialist

Compressor from the cooler for the smoke generator

For you, as for some home masters, it may seem tempting idea of ​​using a portable pump used to inflate tents, boats and mattresses. Specialists dissuade from this plan. This is due to the fact that such devices have a rather high power. As a result of the work, the chips or chips will be shed pretty quickly. Among other things, this pump is not designed for long work.

Alternative solutions

How to make a cooler compressor for a smoke generator, you were able to find out if you got acquainted with the information above. However, before starting work, it is necessary to study the device in more detail. For example, it is worth knowing that the compressor is a device for compressing and moving air, steam or gas. And the importance of this device in smokehouse is due to the fact that the pressure of smoke and the quality of delicacies will depend on the adjustment of air supply.

Speeding consumption is associated with the size of the smokehouse and the capacity of the compressor. The role of an alternative solution can be aquarium compressor, the power of which is 5 watts. Advanced home inventors, however, quite often use 12 W automotive instruments. But they quickly heat up and assume the need to install the rectifier.

If you decide to make a compressor for the smoke generator with your own hands, you can also prefer the device from the old refrigerator. The easiest solution will be the purchase of a finished compressor that will be used to refine the smoke generator. For some, the price may seem high enough, however, the structure running from 220 V 9 l / min can be purchased for 1500 rubles.

Dimogenerator compressor circuit

Conclusion

If you decide to make a compressor for a cold smoking smoke generator, then it is necessary to follow the security measures. To provide for design faults, it is necessary to equip it with an automatic shutdown system. Fragile parts and wires must be protected from overheating and exposure to moisture. To do this, they are placed in some distance from the heating rod.

Fan for smoke generator

For cold smoking at home and industrial production use smoke generators. They may be non-commercial, but more efficient are the devices to which the fan is connected. The supercharger serves air from the smoke generator to the smoke chamber and intensively fills the container of the smokehouse.

The principle of operation of the smoke generator with a fan

The smoke generator produces smoke at the expense of pyrolysis. Sawdust and chips are smoldering during combustion or exposure to the electric heater. The resulting smoke is solved by the flow of air, which serves a fan for the smoke generator, and moves along the chimney in the direction of the smokehouse. The intensity of the feed depends on the power and compressor.

What advantages gives fan

The supercharger for the smoke generator of the smokehouse is of great importance:

  • regulates the intensity of the camera filling, which affects the taste quality of products;
  • Controls the consumption of wood fuel, because the stronger the air flow, the greater the sawdust or chips.

In order for the unit to perform functions on the proper level, it must comply with the following requirements:

  1. The ability of long autonomous work. Cold smoking is a long process, occupying up to several days, so the compressor must withstand such loads.
  2. Efficiency. Electricity consumption must be moderate. It is also important to select the device to which it is easy to find components if you need to replace them.
  3. The presence of regulatory devices. Control of the flow of the supplied air is important, as the fuel consumption and the taste of products to be smoked from it. It is also important to have an autonomous shutdown system to eliminate overheating and fan breakage.

If the fan assembled with its own hands, meets the requirements listed, then there will be no complaints to its work. Such devices are considered functionality and reliability.

What can be done fan

To assemble the fan, you can use various devices available at home. Suitable cooler from a computer, a fortification fan or old compressors from aquarium, refrigerator or car. If there are no such elements at home, you can easily buy them in a stationary store or the Internet.

How to make the fan itself for smoking with your own hands

First of all, before the start of the assembly with your own fan hands, you should decide on technology. It depends on which tools and components will be required.

Fan do it yourself

To power, you need a block for a smoke generator, it can also function on the battery. In the second case, there will be more details for the manufacture. Plus homemade installation in economy, since it is possible to choose the most suitable and quality of the part.

Tools and components

For most fans that are collected with their own hands, a certain set of elements and devices is required:

  • supercharger (cooler or old compressor);
  • tees and fittings;
  • hermetic container (optimal size - 10 liters, but may be greater than or less);
  • resistor;
  • Polypropylene or metal pipe;
  • bolts.

During the assembly of the device, such tools will be useful:

  • electrolovka for cutting parts;
  • drill to do holes;
  • screwdriver for fixing hardware;
  • gas key to ensure hermetic compound by adapter and basic elements;
  • Soldering iron for solder controllers and regulators.

After preparing the necessary details and tools, you can start assembling the fan for the smoke generator with your own hands. The process takes a minimum of time, and when complying with all rules, the result exceeds expectations.

Description of assembly from different components

Depending on the selected fan manufacturing method for the smoke generator, technology will be different. But all the options have both general rules and principles, since the essence of the supercharger work does not change.

From cooler PC

For this method, a cooler is required from a computer or laptop of any size. The greater the parameters, the higher the performance, so if high performance is needed, it is better to prefer the larger diameter fan. The assembly procedure looks like this: Fan from cooler

  1. In a plastic canister or a bottle (volume from 5 to 10 liters), it trifles a hole, the size of the cooler is fitted.
  2. The fan is inserted into the prepared hole and is attached to glue or hardware.
  3. In the lid, the bottle or canister is done a hole where the fitting is placed.
  4. A tube is inserted into the adapter to connect to the smoke generator.
  5. The cooler is connected to the power source. A variable current resistor is installed between it and the fan.

Connections of all elements must be completely sealed, so it is better to use seals and check the reliability of all joints.

Tip! If you want to make a fan with an increased power, you can simultaneously install 2 coolers. In this case, the air is distinguished more intensively.

From the targeted fan

Foot fan compressor

The algorithm for assembling the compressor from the fitting fan or cooler for the bathroom is similar to the previous one. In this case, the power supply is 220V. As a device, regulating turnover, you can purchase a special regulator. Its cost is low, and efficiency and savings when working with a smoke generator are noticeable.

From aquarium compressor

Fan from aquarium compressor

Aquarium compressor - already the finished supercharger, which remains to connect and run correctly. For these purposes, an active compressor is required. Submersible for the smoke generator is not suitable. The supercharger has one or two outgoing tubes. If there are two of them, it will be necessary to combine them and then connect to the smoke generator of smokery.

The optimal option will be a fan with revolutions. This will allow you to change the intensity of the flow of smoke.

From the compressor from the refrigerator

Refrigerator compressor fan

The supercharger from the refrigerator is more powerful and productive. When it is connected, it will be necessary to additionally connect the receiver that will normalize the air supply and issue it when it is required. The pressure relay setting will help control the functioning of the fan and perform autonomous turning on and off when changing the maximum permissible pressure sets displayed by the user.

From autocompressor

Fan from autocompressor

This fan works by analogy with the compressor from the refrigerator. It also requires the installation of the receiver, because at constant operation, the supercharger will overheat and may fail. If you connect the drive to the device, the device will be able to turn off when filling, cool during the time, while the air from the receiver is spent, and then start again. Perform this scheme will help the press service that controls the pressure and responds to its changes.

How to adjust the cooler speed

Regardless of the supercharger rechargeable or running from the network, it is required to adjust the revolutions to achieve optimal smoking mode. To do this, the resistor is installed. Some fans have a ready-made system that is regulated by the principle of pulsed modulation. But the usual resistor with a standard setup set is enough to control the smoking process.

Making a compressor for smoke generator smokehouse with their own hands significantly reduces the cost of equipment. Together with a homemade smoke generator, such a device can function at a high level, providing quality preparation.

The smallest models assembled with their own hands can function from the battery, which makes them mobile. Devices with greater performance require a powerful power source and are installed at the receiving territory, cottage sites and are not transported. With their help, you can smoke large volumes of products for personal use and development of a small case.

Cold smoked smokehouse needs a smoke generator - separate from the smoke chamber device, which should produce a constant flow of cold smoke. This smoke is most convenient to pump in smoke with a compressor. In this article, we tell how the compressor for the smoke generator of the smoke can be made and from which it can be done independently.

It describes that the compressor for the cold smoked smoke generator is described. With hot smoked, no these devices are used, because smoke is formed directly in the smoke chamber.

Without compressor

In the simplest smokehouse, the smoke generator is a simple pit, in which the fire is burning, a stone hearth, a brick or iron furnace. No compressor for smokehouse of this type is required. Smoke from burning firewood or from glowing sawdust enters the smoke chamber with natural thrust, as in the chimney. The role of the smoke cooler in such devices is performed, for example, a tap pipe or a simple ditch, digging in the ground.

This design is quite working, but still too handicraft. In addition, it can be arranged only in the country area.

How the smoke generator works with the compressor

The smoke generator in the general case is just a container in which wood sawdust is smolder. Having released with the smoke is given through the pipe in the smoke chamber. The compressor is needed just in order to strengthen the stream of smoke and send it to the desired side.

Most often, an ejector is applied for this.

A hose from the compressor is put on the ejector's entrance fitting. It creates the air flow in the tube located inside the smoke generator body. Smoke picked up with a vacuum and comes out with the air to the exhaust pipe.

For small homemade smoking, for example, with a bucket, the smoke generator is also required small. And as a compressor, a pump for ventilation aquariums is perfectly suitable for it.

  • He does not need to make it, he is sold ready.
  • It often has a row, allowing you to adjust the power of the air jet.
  • It is reliable and consumes quite a bit of electricity.

Homemade cooler compressor

If you need a compressor more powerful than aquarium, then it can be made with your own hands from a computer cooler. Computers use fans of various sizes, so the choice is large.

The power supply will also be required, because these coolers are usually designed to voltage from 7 to 12 volts.

Take a plastic bottle, cut off her donyshko. In its place, install the cooler, secure it with glue, for example, from the glue gun. In the cover of the bottle, we join the hole, insert a metal or plastic tube into it. It will be a pipe to attach the hose. And the hose other end attach to the ejector of the smoke generator.

If you have a large diameter fan, then instead of a bottle, you can take the canister and cut it into any of the sides.

It will be wonderful if you enable the retainer or some other household voltage regulator in the caulter power supply. Then it will be possible to adjust the power of the jet of smoke.

Compressor from the old vacuum cleaner

A large smoke camera will require a productive smoke generator and a more powerful compressor. Computer coolers will no longer do. Compressor for smoking large products can be easily made from the old vacuum cleaner.

Modern vacuum cleaners are not enough for this. Their output is usually carried out through large cassettes with filters, and they will not be able to attach the hose. But the old Soviet vacuum cleaners often the outlet is exactly the same as the entrance. You can simply attach the hose from the same vacuum cleaner - and you have a ready-made compressor for your smokers!

And of course, if you build a real, big smokehouse, for example for business, then all these handicrafts will not fit you. Industrial devices will have to choose industrial devices as a compressor for cold smoking smoking:

Here, in addition to the supercharger itself there is another receiver, a compressed air cylinder, a gearbox, a pressure gauge, and so on. Air into the smoke generator comes from the cylinder, and the compressor only supports constant pressure in it.

But the construction of industrial smoke settings is a very separate topic.

Smoking products with a cold way due to the processing of them by smoke, formed when the chips with sawdust in the smoke generator. Moving smoke in the smoke chamber can occur due to natural traction. But in order to ensure more efficient flow of smoke, to the products being processed on many smokers made by their own hands, install compressors.

Compressor smoke generator: how the device works

The smoke generator in a pair with a compressor work as follows. Smoke generator is connected to the smokehouse With the help of chimney . In the housing (combustion chamber) of the generator fall asleep sawdust or dry chip. Next, the pipe or hose, leading to the air compressor, is connected to the smoke generator input fittings, after which there are previously flooded sawdust. Due to the stream of air created by the injection machine, a vacuum is created in the ejector of the smoke generator. Under the influence of the last smoke begins to move intensively towards the camera, where products are located.

The compressor for the smoke generator affects the functioning of the entire system as a whole, since the final quality of the product depends on the head of the smoke. Also depends on the capacity of the compressor fuel consumption . The more powerful air flow, the more fuel will be consumed.

Compressor for connecting to the smoke generator can be bought in the finished form. But the price of this unit is high enough, and may exceed the cost of the entire smokehouse. Therefore, many craftsmen prefer to make this node on their own, literally from the girlfriend.

Before the start of owning the compressor, it is necessary to know the basic requirements that are presented to it.

  1. The device must withstand a long continuous operation Since the cold smoking of products implies the processing by their smoke for 24 hours, and sometimes more.
  2. Unit Must be economical not only for electricity consumption, but also at the cost of spare parts for it.
  3. The compressor should be Equipped with air flow regulator . On the strength of the air flow, the taste qualities of the finished product and its ability to storage are dependent.

How to make a copper compressor with your own hands

To force the air into the smoke generator, you can use any device capable of creating a stream. In this case, there will be enough device with a power of 4 W.

From cooler PC

The cheapest and simple version of the compressor, which will provide a smoke generator with air, can be made of a cooler, that is, from an ordinary computer fan. With the volume, any fan is suitable for 40x40 mm to 120x120 mm.

To assemble air supercharged for smokehouse, you will need to prepare the following components:

  • cooler suitable power and size;
  • 5-10 liter plastic capacity, you can use a plastic bottle or canister;
  • plumbing fittings;
  • polypropylene, copper or stainless steel tube with a length of about 25 cm and a diameter of 25 mm;
  • variable resistor or power supply with voltage regulator;
  • Saws.

The method of producing air supercharged is simple.

  1. Cut a hole in the tank corresponding to the size of the cooler. If a plastic canister is used, the hole can be cut with an electroll q.
  2. Insert the cooler into the hole and secure it either using Adhesive pistol, Either self-drawing or bolts.
  3. Next, do the hole in the capacitance cover to install the nozzle to it, to which the tube leads to the smoke generator will be connected. All connections must be Maximum sealed.
  4. Taking advantage of water fittings, secure the tube on the canister or plastic bottle lid.
  5. Connect the fan to the power source of 5-12 V.

To increase the power of the air flow, you can make a fan unit consisting of Multiple coolers.

From the targeted fan

Make a compressor for smokehouse can also be from the guide fan. The manufacturing process is not much different from the same actions using a cooler from PC.

Only instead of connecting the device to the power supply, the fantal fan for the compressor Connects to the network 220 V . As an alternative to the fitting fan, a hood cooler for the bathroom is suitable.

From aquarium compressor

Aquarium compressor can be applied to the cold smoking smoke. But you should know that only a certain type of device is suitable for this purpose, that is, an active compressor . This type of devices is distinguished by an outer installation and have one or 2 output tubes.

Important! The submersible blower for smokehouse will not work.

The device is connected to the smoke generator is very simple: it is enough to insert the output hose of the device into the ejector of the generator ejector and turn on the device. If there are 2 tubes from aquarium compressor, they should be combined in one channel and the last to connect with the fitting. It will be fine if the aquarium supercharger will be equipped Air regulator.

From the compressor from the refrigerator

If desired, the air blower for smoke generator can be made from the compressor from the refrigerator. But in this case, the aggregate will require connect Cumulative capacity (receiver), Which can be made of a metal pipe of large diameter, an old fire extinguisher or gas cylinder.

Important! To automate the compressor, it will also require a pressure relay (press service). The relay is set to minimum and maximum pressure values ​​in the receiver at which the compressor will turn on and disconnect.

Air supply to the smoke generator from accumulative capacity occurs by Pneumatic hose.

From autocompressor

To ensure air flow to the ejector, you can use the usual car compressor. But this unit has one drawback: it cannot work for a long time without stopping because of strong overheating.

But still adapt the autocompressor to work with the smoke generator is possible. It will be necessary to connect to the device. Receiver with pressure sensor , as in the case of the unit from the refrigerator.

After raising the pressure in the receiver to a certain value, the press service will turn off the engine of the machine for a while until the air is spent and run it again to accumulate air in the container. In this mode, the autocompressor will not overheat and will be able to provide a smoke generator of air flow over the day and more.

The work of the crystal smoked smoked smoke is based on the effects of cold smoke, which is formed by the depression of sawdust or pinch on the digging product - meat or fish.

If everything is clear with the smoke chamber (it can be made from any suitable capacity of the desired volume), then everything is not so simple with the flow of smoke. Of course, you can simply dissolve the fire and pump smoke into the camera naturally.

The smoke generator looks like a steel cylinder with a switch, a hole for throwing fuel and a tube to remove smoke. A compressor is connected to this tube, which will serves air, turns out and drives smoke from the generator to the cold smoking chamber. Inside the main cavity of the smoke generator, there is a limiter that does not give to the formation of the heating rod. Below is a chamber for collecting ash and a temperature sensor that does not give to the shakes overheat and ignite.

Characteristics of the smoke generator

Since cold smoking is a rather long process, smoke generator must work for a long time, spending a lot of energy. In the usual mode, the device consumes several kW per day.

The fuel chamber is designed for 1 kg. sawdust, which is enough for the day of continuous operation. If the smoke chamber has a small volume, the smoke generator will completely fill it with the thick smoke of the required temperature, so that the cooking process will go smoothly and efficiently.

Designing smoke generator

Principle of operation of this device You can describe as follows: Air flows, which are provided by the operation of the compressor, suck the combustion products from the heat chamber and serve it in the smokehouse, while turning it to the 19-25 degrees necessary for cold smoking. The whole process occurs automatically, it is not necessary to constantly monitor the operation of the generator and throwing the sawdust - one cast of fuel is exactly enough for the whole day of the aggregate.

Collect a decent smoke generator for smokehouse independently does not matter. The embodiments of the main design elements of the device there are many.

Basic capacity

  • Any fire-resistant capacity is taken, it is desirable from galvanized or stainless steel and with thick walls. The thermos is perfect for a sufficient amount, from which only the inner flask is needed, or an empty fire extinguisher that must be pre-rinsed. The optimal dimensions of the chamber: the diameter is about 10 cm., Height from 40 cm.
  • At the bottom of the chamber, in a pair of centimeters from the bottom, you need to make a hole with a diameter of 1 cm. The compressor will be connected to it in the future to feed the fresh air to maintain the heating.
  • The upper part should be thoroughly posted to provide tightness. Even small gaps will allow excess air to get into the chamber of the tension, without giving the device to work with maximum efficiency.

Chimney

This part of the device is a set of conventional metal pipes of small diameter . You can connect them in any convenient way: welding or carvings.

The chimney location may be different:

  • At the bottom of the furnace. This option is better suited for smoking low . Because of this location, the flow of smoke can often be interrupted, so it is necessary to accurately calculate the height of the furnace chamber. As a result, the duration of automated work is reduced. This position of the chimney does not allow the natural circulation process of smoke circulation. Since smoking and furnace is located in parallel to each other, the thrust force does not occur, and the smoke is fed to the smoke capacity only due to the compressor operation, which is often not enough for the full and efficient operation of the system. And when the pump is turned off, the feed stops at all.
  • Near the roof of the carriage chamber. In this case, all inconvenience disappear - The strength of the thrust allows smoking to go out in the smoking alone. The only minus is a smoke chamber in this case should be above the furnace of the smoke generator, so you have to install it for a pedestal.

Compressor

As a pump for a smoke smoke generator, any device capable of feeding air can be used. Power in 4 watts is enough for efficient operation - suitable, for example, aquarium compressor. You can also make a pump with your own hands as follows:

  • An empty plastic bottle of 1 to 5 l is taken.;
  • The bottom is either cut completely, or the hole is cut into it;
  • A computer cooler is taken, assigned to the hole in the bottle in such a way that the air flow walks inside;
  • The plug on the wiring of the cooler is cut off, the device is powered by a regular battery - it takes only 1.5 V current for operation;
  • The hose is hermetically attached to the throat, which is then joined to the smoke generator.

Such a design will quite well drive the smoke inside the smoke chamber.

Raw

As a fuel for a smoke generator, it is necessary to use not too small sawdust from the tree of any breeds, except for conifers. Evergreen trees in combustion will form smoke, which will give a unpleasant bitterness to meat or fish. Large sawdust is needed so that the fuel does not interfere with the smoke to pass up.

The temperature of the formed smoke can be adjusted. To do this, you need to adjust the length of the tube connecting the smoke chamber and the smoke generator.

Camera for cooking can be made from any capacity of sufficient volume. Suitable design from wooden bar and lining. You can use a galvanized barrel, a gas cylinder, an old refrigeration chamber and even a box of dense cardboard. The refrigerator is good because its door is tightly closed, providing maintenance of a stable temperature under any conditions outside. However, such a camera is suitable only for cold smoking, since with a hot preparation method in the smoke, a high temperature rises, which the internal finishing of the refrigerator will not withstand.

Safety in the design of the device

  1. In case of malfunction, the design of the smoke generator should be equipped with an automatic shutdown system.
  2. All wires and other fragile details need to be reliably protected from overheating and humidity. To do this, they must be positioned at a distance from the heating rod and hide into a hermetic casing.
  3. To create a flue chamber, use special heat-resistant steel sufficient thickness. The device can be painted with fireproof paint. This design will ensure the best reliability and durability of the device.
  4. Install the device is needed to the surface resistant to high temperature, preferably on a layer of concrete or a pedestal of fire-resistant bricks.

Order work with the generator

  • The device is placed on a solid smooth surface.
  • The power cord is connected to the electrical network.
  • The fuel chamber is filled with dry wood sawdust or chips.
  • The chimney of the generator is connected to the smoking chamber, which must be filled in advance by the desired amount of products.
  • The device starts. The heating element begins to wait for the sawdust, they are smoldering, they emit a large amount of smoke, after which the compressor drives smoke smoke. Behind the amount of fuel you need to periodically follow and throw up a new portion of sawdust in time. Disable the device in the cooking process it is impossible so that the product does not deteriorate.

Thus, to assemble an effective smoke generator for homemade smoke can be completely with their own hands.

Traditional Russian cuisine is unthinkable without delicacies prepared with cold smoking. Thus processed fish, bird, meat, vegetables not only have an attractive aroma and a wonderful taste, but also stored for a long time. So that such products appear in your refrigerator, you will have to get down with a smoke generator. And if you have any balance and tools, try making them yourself. Additionally, it is worth making a compressor for the smoke generator with your own hands.

Homemade smoking

Device apparatus

With home smoked, environmentally friendly delicacies are obtained. After all, the processing does not use harmful components or preservatives. When the cold smoke formed by the drainage of a pinch or sawdust passes through meat, fish or fat, pathological microorganisms are destroyed. Due to this, Kushanye acquires excellent taste properties, and its storage is significantly extended.

To take advantage of such a device, you will need the following elements of its design:

  • Smoke camera.
  • Smoke generator.
  • Compressor for the smoke generator.

Homemade smoking

The smokehouse is an extremely simple system. It can be made from any capacity, the main thing is a suitable volume. According to the recommendation of the experienced people, for this purpose you can use a primitive frame from the boards, barrel or even the core from the old refrigerator. Those who are worried about aesthetics and functionality, it is worth paying attention to the options collected from the brick.

Well, when it is possible to download smoke into such a camera naturally. But for this you need to dissolve the fire. At home, it is not always possible to organize this. The smoke generator is an efficient and compact alternative to the present fire. The design includes a combustion chamber and chimney. For combustion of fuel in it serves electrical heating.

Fuel combustion chamber serving to generate smoke can have any volume. But the smaller its size, the more frequent fuel bookmarks it requires.

The thick smoke, which is formed in the chamber, is served in smoke, thanks to the compressor. It is an air intake unit. Permissible power - up to 5 watts. The craftsman for the assembly of such a pump can use a plastic bottle and a small fan, for example, from the workflow. An excellent and affordable option is an aquarium compressor for the smoke generator. Another solution is to purchase ready-made equipment.

Homemade smoking

Compressor characteristics

The work of this apparatus is based on the principle of compression and movement of the gaseous medium - air, steam. The compressor for the smoke generator of the smokehouse plays a special role in the functioning of the entire system. The quality of the finished product will be directly dependent on the head of smoke, which in turn is associated with adjusting the air supply. The pump power also affects fuel consumption, which depends not only on the dimensions of the smoke device.

To understand what compressor is needed for the smoke generator of the smokehouse, the following requirements will be helped with which it must comply with:

  • The need for continuous operation for quite a long time. To process billets, the cold smoking method will require at least 24 hours, and sometimes more depending on the size of the semi-finished product.
  • Efficiency in terms of electricity consumption and spare parts need. It is unlikely that someone will make it necessary to purchase expensive replacement parts for not the most complex equipment.
  • The presence of the possibility of adjusting the supplied air. This factor affects the taste and preservation of the future delicacy.

The device itself serves to generate a permanent air flow with low pressure. At the same time, the effect of injection is created. Technari, loving smoked, can be seduced by the idea that air can be injected through any pump. After all, even the device with not the highest power indicators is able to provide pressure required for modest smokehouse.

Compressor for smoke generator smoke

The efficiency of the system is due to the volume of the chamber for combustion of fuel. If it is about 3 l, then the performance is 1-2 m 3/ Min will be quite sufficient. In this case, the fan is enough, the power of which does not exceed 100 W. A more powerful air blower will be required for greater chamber.

Varieties of devices

Of course, each user chooses a compressor for a cold smoking smoke generator based on its capabilities and abilities. Thus, the inventors successfully collect functional apparatus literally from the remedies. With a fairly simple design, it will not require serious investments and efforts.

Compressor for the smoke generator do it yourself

On the forums you can find an interesting solution - the device of the refrigeration pump. According to user reviews, the decision justifies itself in practice. It is possible to use a car unit. He has solid power (12 W), but there are disadvantages. Such a device is quickly heated, besides, a rectifier will have to be installed for it.

Device of the refrigeration pump

Another widely used version of homemade craftsmen is a compressor for aquarium. Someone uses the old one, others acquire new ones. It costs something inexpensive (the cost does not exceed 1000 rubles) and serves, most often, it is properly.

If you decide to take advantage of the device that was lunned, please note that you need an active apparatus. Your option is a pressure compressor equipped with a piston group. But a water filter with an injection seizure of air is not at all.

If you decide not to risk and choose a ready-made compressor for a smoke generator - you can buy it in both online stores and on the websites of private announcements. The choice of a wide range of 9 l / minute models in the price category is 2000-2500 rubles. The set with a smoke generate will cost about 4000 rubles (depending on the power of the unit).

Compressor for smoke generator

Build a block with your own hands

If the purchase of finished products is not your option, then it is not really difficult to create workable equipment. It is worth paying attention to the simplest, but very effective way to use a cooler from the computer. By choosing such a budget decision, you can count on economy of electricity.

In addition to the craftsman, a small set of components will be required:

  • Any sealed vessel with a volume of up to 10 liters. For example, plastic canister or served its gas cylinder.
  • Computer fan that is selected according to the size of the device.
  • Fittings and tees (fit water).
  • Pipe with a diameter of 25 mm.
  • Resistor variable resistance.

Compressor for the smoke generator do it yourself

Do not do without tools. To assemble the compressor with your own hands for the smoke generator, you need to stockpenter, an electric bolt, a drill, a gas key, bolts and a screwdriver.

Technology:

  1. To begin with, cut the hole in the selected vessel in the size of the cooler. Insert it into the slot and fix bolts. Landing should be as sealed as possible. To achieve greater structural strength and reduce the noise load, if you install the equipment on a narrow edge of the vessel.
  2. Insert the outlet into the neck. As an option - make an extra hole. In order to avoid air leakage, careful sealing is needed.
  3. Connect the flexible hose connected to the smoke generator. In the manufacture of high-power instrument, hard air ducts will need.
  4. To increase smoking power, choose a cooler more powerful or install additional.
  5. A variable resistance resistor is mounted to adjust the compressor speed for the smoke generator of the smokehouse.

Council. Someone will seem tempting idea to take advantage of the portable pump for the inflation of mattresses, boats, tents. Do not. Such a device has a greater power. As a result, the chips or chips will be burned quickly. In addition, such a pump is not designed for long work.

Buy the compressor for the smoke generator or risked to collect independently, the money spent or efforts accumulate themselves. Such a useful thing is necessarily useful in private economy. In addition to the preparation of fragrant smoked smoke, the smoke generator will find its use in the fusion of landings - garden and berry crops, garden trees.

Smoked rules

The main role in smoke playing smoke. The appointment of the smoke generator is the production of a large amount of smoke. There is a large number of diverse devices on sale, but they are quite expensive, and therefore it is best to make a smoke generator personally.

The design is quite simple. In this case, the device has many advantages, one of which is that it can work in automatic mode. At the same time, the temperature in the smoke is not so great so that the products are burned.

Smoke generator for smokehouse, made with your own hands, works on sawdust, chips or chips, which are slowly smoldering inside the machine. The most important thing is to file the smoke produced in the smoke.

The intensity of the smoked and, therefore, the duration and taste quality of products depends on the design of the smoke generator. With cold smoke, it is necessary to observe several conditions:

  • Products before cooking need to be thoroughly rinsed;
  • Processing smoke should be at least several hours, and ideally two to three days;
  • The smoke temperature should be low;

As a fuel, waste from fruit-berry trees can be used, but in no case are not coniferous, otherwise the products are powdered with resins, and the dish will be hopelessly spoiled.

The most important thing in the manufacture of the smoke generator with your own hands is to properly arrange all parts of the design and serve smoke low temperatures. Observing all the requirements, ultimately, you can get the product of perfect golden color and exquisite taste.

As a fuel, it is customary to use wood waste from:

  • alder;
  • cherry;
  • apple trees;
  • pears;
  • and you.

At the same time, the taste of smoked smoked devices depends on the fuel, and therefore, having gathered the smoke and the smoke generator with their own hands and prepare the products on different types of fuel and their combinations, you can ultimately invent our own recipe for meat or fish cold smoking inactive taste.

All smoke generators without compressor consist of:

  • Floor chamber;
  • smoke cooling systems;
  • Smoke feed systems in smoking tank.

The flow of smoke is carried out at the expense of natural traction. Accordingly, you can independently adjust the amount of incoming smoke, increasing or reducing the air supply to the flue chamber.

How to make a compressor for the smoke generator with your own hands

Compressors are two types: with a receiver or without. The first option is often found in the garage. The steel tank under pressure, which is supported by the periodic inclusion of a powerful compressor. Such a technique can provide air smoke with a good barn size. In our case, enough device is simpler.

Compressor for smoke generator Smokeholder from a fan from a computer. Sable any plastic container (for example, a canister from building mixtures) and drill one or two holes in it under the fan. The turbines from the old computer are suitable, they consume little and blow well. Receiver-canister normalizes the flow of air, and will produce it with a uniform intense flow.

The power supply is charging for the tablet or the laptop power supply unit. If you disassemble the old computer - you have a regular power source from it. The main thing is to match the fans voltage. In extreme cases, the simplest power supply for 5 or 12 volts is easy to do. A small transformer, a diode bridge and a stabilizer on the roll chip.

It is somewhat more complicated to make a pumping nozzle, however, and this is not a problem. Pruning water pipes will certainly be found in the home storage room.

As a result, we get a non-pieces in appearance, but a very effective design. And most importantly - in fact free.

Homemade compressor for the smoke generator

This design can be left in working condition for a long time. Energy consumption is kopeck, there is no need to control the process. The main thing is to correctly calculate the volume and quality of wood fuel in the generator.

The compressor with the guide fan. This is already the design of the middle power, which can be connected to a smoke generator to a volume of up to 5 liters. Accordingly, the smoke chamber can be served more. The most convenient receiver (we are talking about free billets) will serve as a PET bottle of the corresponding size. Special stiffness is not needed, we do not have a vacuum, but overpressure.

Plastic bottle smoke generator compressor

Food for such a 220 volt fan. If possible, install the regulator, to control the head of the air. Considering the high power, such a generator can be run periodically. Film smoke smoke, the smoke chamber - took a break. Then the cycle is repeated.

Aquarium compressor for the smoke generator. This device can be found in almost every home. Either from the old aquarium that has not needed. Or you updated the technique, and the old compressor (subject to service) lies without a case.

Pay attention. This is exactly about active compressors. Water filters with the possibility of an injection seizure of air are not suitable

We need a pressure compressor, with a piston group.

There are also industrial smoke generators working with similar pressure blowers, but still more pleasant to collect smoking on their own.

Dymogenerator for cold smoked with aquarium compressor Successful project

Actually, the smoke generator is made of an old electric kettle. The design approached the perfectly vertical body of a stainless steel, a dense cover, a thick bottom. For tightness, you can chop holes for screws around the cover. Without fixing the lid can not do. It is not an overpressure, the design of the nozzles is heavy and unstable, the lid will open.

Homemade smoke generator

At the bottom, the hole is drilled for ignition and fresh air supply. The cover is mounted with a fitting from ordinary iron accessories for water supply. Then the tee is screwed from above.

Next, we make the most responsible part - nozzle (injector) for mixing air with smoke. For this, the fitting for the hose is suitable in which the copper tube is rolled from some gas system.

Important! All elements of the smoke generator must be made of metal. Despite the flow of cold air - under the lid, the temperature can reach 200 ° -300 °

On the fitting we put on a flexible hose connected with aquarium compressor. Power is more than enough for such a container of the generator. I fall asleep chips, set on fire, let it be flared and plan the flame. We needed the remission, with the allocation of a large amount of smoke. We close the lid, test.

Test of the smoke generator and aquarium compressor

Switching the speed of the compressor, adjust the pressure of smoke. For such a generator, you can use the chamber about 0.5 cubic meters. The perfect option is 200 liter barrel. We upgrade the sovereign to the state of the smokehouse.

It is advisable to ensure the tightness of the lid. Otherwise there will be loss of smoke, and smoking efficiency will decrease. Let the product hang, let's noting smoke.

On the bottom you can lay in advance foil. Fat dripping down, eventually gives a burden smell. After 8-10 hours, a ready-made result.

The simplest design of the smoke generator with aquarium compressor, which can be collected in a few minutes - video.

Options for manufacturing compressor for the smoke generator with their own hands

For the manufacture of a homemade compressor, sweater materials are used, there is a plastic bottle or canister among them. Such devices correspond to the following characteristics:

  • Provide uninterrupted air supply during the smoked period.
  • Consume minimum energy, and, it means economical.
  • Availability and low cost of structural parts.
  • Create a small overpressure, which is enough for the smoke generator of smokeholders and obtaining the effect of ejection.
  • The ability to restore performance by repair and timely maintenance.

Tell me in each version.

From plastic bottle

You will need the following materials:

  • Plastic bottle (2 l);
  • Cooler (with shower hood or from the PC system unit);
  • glue thermopystole;
  • Metal or plastic tube;
  • 12 V. power supply

Installation is made according to the following instructions:

  • In a plastic bottle cut off the bottom.
  • Insert the fan and fix along the contour of the fitting with a special glue-pistol.
  • Acquired in advance power supply 12 in Connect using terminals to a fan having a connecting wire. If you use a charger with an existing one, then solder the response to the fan wire.
  • To choose a suitable metal or plastic tube, which will direct the air in the smoke generator.

Plastic bottle or other container is used as a receiver for air, which comes from the fan operation. The air at the outlet acquires a stable smoothed stream without jumps of overpressure.

How to make a plastic bottle compressor, it is clear, but the device is suitable only for small smoke generators. It does not recommend the case of the smoke generator tightly clog sawdust.

From plastic or metal canisters

The compressor for the smoke generator from the design of the design is more complicated by the previous version, since the unit is complicated by revolutions.

Details and materials:

  • axial cooler from PC block;
  • hermetic plastic container from under the automotive oil volume 10l;
  • Clee thermopystole;
  • resistor of variable resistance (potentiometer), which is designed to adjust the revolutions of the compressor;
  • copper, stainless or polypropylene tubes with a diameter of 25 mm, up to 25 cm long;
  • M4 screws.

For installation of the homemade device, the following tools will be needed:

  • electrolovik;
  • drill;
  • Device for spike parts;
  • screwdriver;
  • Gas key number 1 (for clamping pipes with a diameter of 10-36 mm).

When creating a constant air flow, the performance of the smoke generator and the volume of the smoke chamber takes place. For productivity needs 0.5-2 m3 per minute, the fan with a power up to 10-30 W will be the perfect option. With a greater volume of the generator chamber, you will need a fan of greater power.

Installation work is in the following actions:

  • The electrolovka carries out the hole on any face canister in size of the cooler case. Fixing the device - with bolts. The more tightly it will be done, the greater performance will produce a compressor during operation.
  • In the neck, a tube is installed, which is cut down to 25 cm long, if necessary, with a drill. A complete sealing of lumens achieves due to the adhesive mass of the composite material.
  • Mounted a resistor into the power supply unit using a soldering iron.

If the first test of the homemade compressor is unsuccessful, one of the presented methods should be rationally to replace the structural elements. For example, change the fan to the unit more powerful or find the capacity of greater volume.

What a smoking smoked smoked depends on the volumes of the treated raw materials. If you decide to equip mini smoke at home, you will need an industrial option. This is a permanent high performance apparatus. It is designed for cooking at a large number of smoked smoked (from several tens of kilograms). It provides all technologies for creating dishes from different raw materials and smoke parameters.

Industrial generator for cold smoking can be purchased in specialized stores or on the Internet. There you can also choose and household settings designed for the preparation of the session to fifteen kilograms of delicacies. These are portable devices, it is easy for them to find a place in the house, simply removing in the box or in the closet. Such structures do not require a large consumption of chips and sawdust, and the quality of smoke is not inferior to industrial fellows. Main differences - size and performance.

 The homemade smoke generator with an electro-element, as well as used in industrial enterprises, implies a long work, because the cooking process can take more than a day.

For uninterrupted operation, the device must have certain technical specifications:

  • Driveted from a 220V outlet and consume electricity not more than 4 kW per day;
  • Have an adjustment toggle switch to turn off when the desired temperature is reached;
  • The heating element must be a power of about 1 kW;
  • The volume of the bunker for sawdust is at least 1.5 kilograms so that work can continue until one and a half days;
  • The optimal size of the camera is 1 cubic meter, in it future delicacies are well soaked with fragrant smoke.

The smoke generator must be equipped with an automatic shutdown system in case of malfunction.

 The main elements of the device are camera, ejector, compressor (pump) and raw materials for smoke. Modern devices are equipped with additional structural devices, for example, thermal sensors. The smoke generator works for this principle: the air flow arising due to the compressor takes the fragrant smoke from the furnace chamber and directs it to the smokehouse. At the same time, the combustion product is cooled to 19-25 degrees fit for cooking smoked.

Homemade smoke generators are different in their constructive features. But all of them can be divided into two groups depending on the method of heating.

Source heating Principle of operation
Open fire The simplest option: the metal box is taken, the sawdust is covered inside it. In its upper part, the conclusion is embedded with the corrugated tube for the removal of smoke. The design is installed on an open fire, under the action of which sawdust is smolder. The use of compressors here is usually not provided. With the apparent simplicity of the device, it has certain disadvantages: control the selection and temperature of the smoke, and also impossible to add sawdust. Yes, and the long process of cold smoking is difficult to ensure, open fire must be constantly monitored.
Electric element It also uses a container with a solution for smoke, but an electrical element is installed inside. If the heating of the smoke base is carried out using electricity, it is recommended to embed a thermal sensor that turns off the device when the desired temperature is reached. It is possible to adjust the chip arson process using an electronic control unit. Fan block will be booped up. Such a device does not need constant attention to the smokers, it is only necessary to periodically add sawdust or chip.

When using electrical equipment for smoking, especially homemade, it is necessary to comply with all safety regulations when working with electrical appliances.

How to make himself

As a smoke generator, you can use a bubzhuyk furnace. At the same time, a stove with a winding pipe is used for cold smoking smoking. Due to the number of knees of the pipe and its length smoke is cooled naturally. Accordingly, for hot smoked, use the pipe of the minimum length.

You can create a smoke generator with your own hands from girlfriend. For the manufacture of the device you will need:

  • Pipe with round or square cross section 10x10 cm stainless steel;
  • a metal sheet;
  • Cut pipes about 40 cm and a diameter of 2.5-4 cm;
  • 3 m corrugated pipe or metal sleeves;
  • welding machine;
  • Bulgarian.

The most difficult in the work on creating a smoke generator without a compressor is your own hands is the welding of chimney fitting and the manufacture of the door.

The thick pipe is intended for the manufacture of the housing of the furnace. The bottom of the metal is cut and the camera cover of the corresponding sizes. Several holes drill on the side of the pipe, through which fuel and air for burning air.

In order for the device to be stable, you can welcome the legs to it. If the lid or bottom is removable, then you do not need to make the doors, as the fuel can be loaded through the top or bottom of the device.

In the upper lid no holes are provided. Removable lid is provided by a handle for convenience. Under the lid carved hole for chimney. The fitting comes from the body 5-8 cm to which the chimney is joined.

The length of the smoke depends on the type of smoking, which you will use. If you wish, you can make a chimney with removable and national team so as not to make a smoke generator for different types of smoking separately.

How to make a copper compressor with your own hands

To force the air into the smoke generator, you can use any device capable of creating a stream. In this case, there will be enough device with a power of 4 W.

From cooler PC

The cheapest and simple version of the compressor, which will provide a smoke generator with air, can be made of a cooler, that is, from an ordinary computer fan. With the volume, any fan is suitable for 40x40 mm to 120x120 mm.

Tip! It is better to choose a cooler of maximum sizes to ensure good smoke generator performance.

To assemble air supercharged for smokehouse, you will need to prepare the following components:

  • cooler suitable power and size;
  • 5-10 liter plastic capacity, you can use a plastic bottle or canister;
  • plumbing fittings;
  • polypropylene, copper or stainless steel tube with a length of about 25 cm and a diameter of 25 mm;
  • variable resistor or power supply with voltage regulator;
  • Saws.

The method of producing air supercharged is simple.

  1. Cut a hole in the tank corresponding to the size of the cooler. If a plastic canister is used, the hole can be cut with an electroll q.
  2. Insert the cooler into the hole and secure it either using the adhesive gun, or self-drawing or bolts.
  3. Next, do the hole in the capacitance cover to install the nozzle to it, to which the tube leads to the smoke generator will be connected. All connections must be maximally sealed.
  4. Taking advantage of water fittings, secure the tube on the canister or plastic bottle lid.
  5. Connect the fan to the power source of 5-12 V.

Tip! To adjust the cooler speed, you can use the usual variable resistor, which is installed between the power supply and the fan. An ideal option can be considered a power supply that has a voltage regulator, for example, from a television antenna.

To increase the power of the air flow, you can make a fan unit consisting of several coolers.

From the targeted fan

Make a compressor for smokehouse can also be from the guide fan. The manufacturing process is not much different from the same actions using a cooler from PC.

Only instead of connecting the device to the power supply, the fantal fan for the compressor is connected to the 220 V network as an alternative to the fitting fan, an exhaust cooler for the bathroom is suitable.

Tip! To change the intensity of air supply, you can use the revolutions regulator (220 V), purchased in China at a price of about 270 rubles. (See photo below).

From aquarium compressor

Aquarium compressor can be applied to the cold smoking smoke. But you should know that only a certain type of device is suitable for this purpose, that is, an active compressor. This type of devices is distinguished by an outer installation and have one or 2 output tubes.

The device is connected to the smoke generator is very simple: it is enough to insert the output hose of the device into the ejector of the generator ejector and turn on the device. If there are 2 tubes from aquarium compressor, they should be combined in one channel and the last to connect with the fitting. It will be fine if the aquarium supercharger will be equipped with a regulator of air supply.

From the compressor from the refrigerator

If desired, the air blower for smoke generator can be made from the compressor from the refrigerator. But in this case, the accumulative capacity (receiver) will be connected to the aggregate, which can be made of a metal pipe of a large diameter, an old fire extinguisher or gas cylinder.

Air supply to the smoke generator from a storage tank occurs by means of a pneumatic hose.

From autocompressor

To ensure air flow to the ejector, you can use the usual car compressor. But this unit has one drawback: it cannot work for a long time without stopping because of strong overheating.

But still adapt the autocompressor to work with the smoke generator is possible. It will be necessary to connect to the device the receiver with a pressure sensor, as in the case of the unit from the refrigerator.

After raising the pressure in the receiver to a certain value, the press service will turn off the engine of the machine for a while until the air is spent and run it again to accumulate air in the container. In this mode, the autocompressor will not overheat and will be able to provide a smoke generator of air flow over the day and more.

What compressor install

The compressor is a device designed for compression and movement of air, gas or steam. In the smokehouse, such a device is an important detail. After all, the pressure of smoke depends on the adjustment of air supply, and, it means, the quality of the future delicacy. Consumption of sawdust is also associated not only with the size of the smokehouse itself, but also with the capacity of the compressor.

The compressor used in cold smoking smoke generators is obliged to comply with certain requirements. He must:

  • work continuously long time;
  • be economical in terms of consumption of electricity and acquiring parts for replacement;
  • be able to regulate the incoming air.

The principle of operation of this device is based on the fact that it generates a constant stream of air of low pressure and can create an injection effect. Many home smoking lovers are confident that any pump can serve. After all, a small smokehouse requires a pressure of 0.81 atmospheres, and it is not possible to give even the most powerful apparatus. Efficiency largely depends on the volume of the heat chamber. If it does not exceed three liters, there is enough performance in 1-2 m3 / min. To ensure it is enough a fan with a capacity of up to 100 watts (dispelled heat).

The greater the volume of the chamber, the more powerful the compressor is needed.
