Hello All,

This is just to let you know that our first RMH is done and after almost 3 weeks of having filled the bench I guess it is dry. I think we did some mistakes as the pipe is too deep in the bench and therefore it does not get that hot and also we should have tried harder on getting 2 pipes under the bench but I just could not figure out how to clean the second pipe and the draft did not seem strong enough due to too many curves therefore decided for a single pipe. The RMH is ok could be better and it is acceptable.

We have the testing team right now on it.

Best wishes and thanks for the help and advises provided.

Carlos and Nara

Carlos and Nara : Congratulations, you have moved from the ranks of 'those doing' to 'them thats Done it !' I certainly learned as much from you two, and am much
more aware of how much easier it is for us (norte`)Americans to dip into our rich waist stream to get supplies that can not be got for love or money outside of the
'States'! Up here 'Doing more with less' is just an expression ! you and yours live it every day ! my hat is off to you ! Big AL ! Open for all comments + questions !
