I am still here and still doing my home works before to start any project.I find this recipe 5 part clay,5parts organic matter,1 part potash water,1 part sugary syrup and half part straw.Please let me know your opinion if this mix could be good for core and heat riser.Stuff like perlite and vermiculite is expensive where I live so I must find some poor man solutions to build my rocket heater.
Here is the link with the recipe http://www.rechoroket.com/%22How_to%22_Albums/Pages/Clay_mixture.html

Hi everybody ,please be patient with my English,is all I have for the moment.
More I read or watch videos about rocket mass heaters more I like the idea to make one,but of course like any beginner will start with questions.
I have done one rocket stove for cooking ,three or for ears ago,is doing he's job very well .I use wood ash for insulation.
Could be wood ash a good insulation for a heat riser in a mass heater?
Or could be wood ash one component in a homemade refractory mortar recipe?

Hy Alistair. My English is poor and your text is to long for me LOL.. but how I uderstand what you need I dare to recomand ....
http://www.traditionaloven.com/articles/101/what-is-fire-clay-and-where-to-get-it here is one.
The amount of water from a heat exchanger usualy is approx. one third from the all amount of water in an installation for heating and hot water.This is important for your heat exchanger coils dimensions.
About thermosiphoning...if you are not using a pump ,in the circuit,than you need to use large diameter tubes let say 3\4 tzoll because of the friction and the heat exchanger have to be in a lower position like all the rest...and don't forget the coils ,I sure is about copper tube and is not 3\4 so I am sure you will need a pump.
I have a simple rocket stove ,for cooking and I use ash for insulation.
I hope I wasn't offtopic LOL
Please excuse my English ,is all I have and I hope is understandable for you.

Hy everybody ,I am Adrian from Transylvania.This is a huge forum and I don't find where to introduce myself so this topic is good like any other.
About LED lights...I started to change all my incandescent bulbs on LED's and I do this with LED strips (SMD 3528) .those are the cheapest on the market ,here where I live.These strips are 5 meter long and I am able to make two lamps with,let say a ceiling lamp and a work or reading lamp . I start with LED's from a few months and I am truly satisfied how they work.
I solved the focusing angle mounting them on a circle shape for ex and this way the light is spread well.
These LED's work on 12Volts and the hall 5 meter long strip can be powered by a small 3 Amp. adaptor.So with every 5 meter I buy two adapters 2Amps each because I make two lamps from each strip.
From my studies I can tell you that if you want to buy LED's ,take care to buy quality ,good brand.mine are chinese but I assume this .LED manufacturers are giving a lot of technical data about there LED's but they never say what are electrodes (anod and cathod) made of ,how pure is the material they are made with.This is the reason why not all the LED's are functioning really 40000 hours ,assuming you powered them corectly.
There is a long story behind the LED's ,but the real examples what are already done by members speaks from it self.
