Stealth is what this new retort is about. The burn band started June 1. So open fires are out. My double barrow retort just gets to hot, it is okay in the winter months but is not going to fly in the summer months. I need it to be insulated and want it to function like a continuous feed but have a hopper on it. I also want it to empty from the bottom with a augur when cooled.
I have look at a lot of different types that the members and others have built.
I am going to try to incorporate some of the different ideas into this one.
Also this unit when not in use as a retort will be able to become a charcoal gasifier. Duel purpose.
I am using the heavy duty piping I used to build a rocket stove about 3 years ago and parts of my first attempt at building a gasifier.
Packed dirt around it to insulated the bottom.
More to come.
