jacob green : this is certainly an interesting idea, I do not think
anyone has tried it, there is so little Accurate Equipment for measuring Percents of Oxygen,
Dioxide and Monoxides that is affordable at the D. I. Y. level that we are left with no way to measure the true effect, the catalytic converter is thus
a Very expensive luxury item !
The catalytic converter would itself have to come up to operating temperatures, before it would do anything at all, and this is the point our Rocket stove
at its most effective, so there is little room for gain!
There has been some talk that due to the high exhaust temps and 'rich' unburnt wood
gases of conventional wood stoves, a catalytic converter might cause
the Wood Stove
out Various Oxides of Nitrogen, I do not know this for a fact, this is merely what I have Heard ! For the Good of the craft ! BIG AL
