A warm HELLO to all folks at permies!
I've been studying the information about rocket stoves for three years now and I'm finally preparing for my own build here in the western side of Romania.
The following questions appeared: what is the Max distance of a 6" (15cm) system exhaust? (Ianto Evans and Leslie Jackson are mentioning a minimum of 6 meters of duct and 3 tons of mass heater for a 15 cm system). Should I cut 1.5m length (5 feet) for each 90 degrees elbow?
And can I run it horizontally for the first half of the total length and than in a vertical S shape towards the chimney? It will connect to an interior chimney about 7 meters high (of which 0.5m are above the roof edge). Chimney interior diameter is 15 cm, round shaped. Can I use black stove pipe for the duct in the bench? I will also attach a sketchup of my system as soon as possible. THANK YOU for helping a newbie!
