Hi Mart;
Was that 1" CF blanket that you used ?  

This should work just fine, the ceramic blanket is really good stuff.

What exactly are you attempting to do ? Seems a lot of effort to make a riser with air crete , when you could make a 5 minute riser with thin wall pipe faster, cheaper and easier.
When using the CF products , boards and blanket your high heat issues just went away.

This took me 15 min :-)        Air crete by itself does crack,   I wanted to see if the aircrete would hold the ceramic fiber in place ( which it did )   I want to know how much difference the insulated pipe would rocket, how much air would it pull being so insulated verses a standard pipe.       I was also thinking a  mini rocket stove with this as a riser, perhaps a metal 5 gal bucket upside down with this as the riser.


The blanket I used was 3/4 inch

I had several ideas at the same time :-)    I was wondering if I could put the thermal mass inside my home and have the rocket stove outside with a Peter Van consturction.     I load the stove outside get it going then have it heat the thermal mass via a pipe that goes in the window, then another that comes out to a chimney.    I would love to have the rocket stove outside and the thermal mass inside but I need to do test to see how much draw this will have.        I will test all of this before I do anything inside.


The trouble with rocket stoves is you always think of a new way of doing it and you don't sleep very well till you tested it ;-)

Yup Mart ;  Diagnosis is complete!  You have the dreaded RMH disease !! OH NO nothing for you to do now but spend 1/2 your time designing and building rmh's and the other half will find you regaling complete strangers about rmh's.  

My congratulation's (oops) condolences on your illness … Sleepless nights … complete strangers looking at you like a soapbox preacher … The only cure is what you are doing!  Great Job keep up the good work!
 
If you two don't stop this rough-housing somebody is going to end up crying. Sit down and read this tiny ad:
