Here’s a picture of the updated hot water heater by the showers. The changes included adding an insulated exhaust pipe with clean out; doubling the height on the heat riser; adding an extension to the wood feed to allow covering it with bricks while wood is in it; adding a P channel to the feed; and covering the riser with a nice metal outer skin.

Students learned several types of welding during the ATC and put it to use adding to the riser support.

Additional work was done on the berm shed, replacing a post and adding the additional beams and girders to improve clearance and stability.

Now that the ATC is over I have time to post some pictures! Here are a few from the pressurized rocket water heater rebuild.

Thank you for the great pics and welcome to the forum Josiah!  So good to have you on here!
 
It's a pleasure to see superheros taking such an interest in science. And this tiny ad:
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars
