If it failed, can you describe the failure mode.
Thank you for taking the time to read through my crazy.

Sidney Beauchamp wrote:I have a theory that by adding a secondary vortex combustion chamber between the riser and the port, it would greatly minimize the amount of ashes that get sucked up the riser. Basically the same technology used in Dyson vacuums. It is used successfully in the Cyclone steam generators.

I kinda understand how it works but cant find a lot on exactly where it goes in the batch box design.
Does it enter directly into the riser or just into the steel barrel?
