Fail-Safe means just what it says.
When the user-operator “Fails” to be present will your system use up it’s loaded fuel supply and slow; heat producing, toxic gas producing, safely to a stop.
J.O. on another topic line put up his whole house wood heating system as intentional designed to be Fail-Safe under any conceivable operating conditions.
He was able to answer multiple question proving this.
A vehicle gasifier system it is assumed the Operator will always be present to make-safe operation. Ha! Ha! And vehicle system it is ONLY the experienced operator that can get them started and working in the first place.
Stationary gas producers such as I’ve done and other do this is not true.
In fact the whole goal is to have systems that require no operator for at least 2 hours. Up to 8 hours.
Then Fail-Safe becomes a #1. More important than performance.
Well. At least it should.
And now I fight on one of my topics too many woo-woo seduced by Rocket stoveing magic unable to even conceive, let alone, try and understand simple natural draft chimney basics.
And thank-you, thank-you JeffD, TomH, and DonM who do seem to understand.
For the majority here it is . . .
Fail-Safe? What’s that? Wasn’t that an early 1960’s movie?
Errr. I think I’ll break my doctor prohibition and just go back to whiskey drinking.
But not just a shot or two a week. Mike LaRosa heavy daily drinking.
You no make Fail-Safe a thought about, planned for, re-designed for . . . .
Then it is YOU who are the single point failure.
