The wood burning Rocket Stove is done and it works beautifully! This is a complete walk through of my design and fabulously successful first burn. After 5 minutes there was no smoke. When it was done there was virtually no ash. Watch for plans to replicate at http://alt-nrg.org/
Here are the critical numbers... * Tank is a salvaged 17gal compressor tank with 1/8" thick walls, 36" long by 12" I.D. * Vertical flue stack is 3 groups of 9" long fire brick, 3.5"x3.5"x27" (12.25 sq-in across, about the same as a 4" round pipe). * Vertical stack surrounded by 8" x 24" galvanized pipe with insulation stuffed in the open spaces. * Gap at the top of the internal flue is 2" from the center of the tank (A little less at the edges because of the convex surface). * Gap between the 8" pipe and I.D. of the tank is 2". * The horizontal burn tunnel is 5.5" long (measured at the top edges), 3.5"W x 3.25" H (11.375 sq-in across). * Vertical feed tube is 3.5"W x 3.25"D x 7.75"H (measured from the top edge to bottom inside).
