JO, condensation is likely. But l dont quite get it, its a sealed fuel tank system???
Well l was wery pleased with performance, the mistake was all mine. Fixing it wuld only be temporairy, modifying wuld require more time thain building a new one.
Well l plan on retaining the shape of the hearth more of less, with restriction and all. Will see…
Bob, l have. I have no dubt his system will work and only tears shed will be those of joy. But l am personaly not a fan of cooling the nozzles. By coolng them you are stealig heat from the gasifier and even if the heat is used to make steam, there are heat sorces that provide actualy free energy.
The flute works flawlessly as a updraft, but l have no idea how it will s a downdraft. This system will probably have less air preheat, l want to keep nozzles cool.
This projectis kind of a experiment to see how fast and simple can a useable downdraft be made.
Tom, Eddy tryed but gave up the hearth looks kinda like a hybrid between a lmbert and a WK, quite simple. But the way gas and air ways are interacted is way too complicated for us to be able to draw accuretly jast by description and sceches. If you like l can video it thugh.
There will be two oposite flutes about 6" apart faceing each other.
