I have questions tho.
Are the feed tube, burn tunnel and heat riser insulated?
How long have you been running it?
Do you have temperature data for the core? Like burn tunnel and heat riser temps? Anything under 900 celcius in the heat riser i consider not rockety enough.
You don't seem to be close to anybody i know with a Testo 330 II. That would be intresting to see if you can reach better numbers than Peter or Matthew, and make the stove last.
PS: another question, what is your width to height ratio of the burn tunnel?
As I stated in reply to your earlier post. "All of the details are on the original thread". Nothing has changed except the front end which doesn't even get hot enough to burn your hand when placed on top.
As for your temperatures of 900C well, on a six inch system. I call "Bullshit" and on an eight inch system I'll call almost unless we all live in a perfect world of laminar perfection. 6" 600C, 8" 800C. Of course you have to take into account that internet never forgets and I quote.
"Thanks a lot guys.
Well, the next question which comes to my mind, do we realy need the hotest flame to burn everything. If we have a bit more air intake, than the ideal adibatic combustion, the gasses in the burn chamber and heat riser will somehow cool down. The thing would be to find the good compromise between proper burning through the burning lengh, and not too hot as not to melt things
Since i'm a keen user of metal." You said it Satamax. Not me.
