FIRE IN THE HOLE. got my gasifier type wood boiler Done FINALY, seems too heat up much faster and 85 % less smoke, or i get about 25 % of what i did with old stye burner. works best with both fans running, the fans are only about 30 watt each anyway. Got my transmission drain pan glowing, took about 1/4 load too get the bottom glowing enough too sustain a flame, as my wood is about 45 % moisture. working good after i fixed the top burner doors seal with glass insulation till get new rope seal, the bottom door i built has no leaks at all. .Got the resivoir water tank installed late last night, my return water line is over 8 feet up, and my dish washer 70 watt pump has been doing the job. suprizing how a 20 % duty cycle pump runs all winter long, some years i use two pumps if the bearings get lould. it wasent easy getting it up on a barrel two milk crates and about 6 blocks of 4×4 and 2×4 board.Thats all for now till i think what i missed typeing.BBB.
Got too install insulateing layers metal in front of bottom burn chamber door till i get the heat down below 500 so the silicone on door seal dont turn too powder. Well i built it. I built an ceramic blanket insulated double wall ramp too send the flame blast away from my bottom door seal and it works, so far after running a little over a load of wood out the bottom burn chamber my bottom door plate stays under 400 f and the red silocon i bought is good for 500 f continous. So thought i wood add the last few pics of the flame inside the bottom chamber, behind my flame ramp door insulater
I covered the ceramic insulation with 1/8" ss plate too keep the top insulate up, and dust down, its all glowing in bottom burn chamber, really running clean out chimney.All so i must add that on the other side on the bottom burn chamber and ceramic blanket, outside metal only about 175 too 250 f degrees, so that ceramic is working good keeping the outside temps down.
