In kerosene stoves, some metals are exposed to the fire and yet they last long. But use those metals in rocket stove and they'll soon burn out. So I'll like to know the operating temperature of a typical kerosene stove and a rocket stove.

More!

Some rockets, as it seems, can reach 1200C° at some peak during the burn.

I for sure can tell you that i've seen my batch rocket back wall and heat riser bottom glow bright orange. That's more than 940C° already if i follow a firebrick glow chart. So the gases in contact must be at a higher temp!

Thanks for thant info. Do you know if red clay (iron oxide) and sawdust will do for the combustion chamber?

Henry, that might be a smidge weak imho.

Red clay and sand. for the inner layer i'd say, then followed by your sawdust and red clay mix. Have you seen Matthewwalker's casting techniques? There's few links in recent posts to his videos.

I'm building a stove with it and not a mass heater (I don't know about the d/f in temperature between the two though). Send me a link to the video.

I just wanted a simple stove for cooking. I want to see if I can commercialize it in my country. It's not popular here.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://richsoil.com/wood-heat.jsp
