the working height of the Feed Tube " B " will always create Smoke back and flames burning up the wood when it exceeds 1/4 of the height of the Heat Riser " F "
unless the system is modified to run constantly as a forced draft system, this isolates the Feed tube and makes by ear adjustments of the air fuel mix impossible
Hello Rick et all,
Is there a reason a cage would not work @ function B ? Something that would thwart leaners and not affect your pressure / gas dynamics ensuring a smoke-free environ. Allow gravity the honors!
The only concern I might have is back pressure causing the long sticks to light the ceiling - but in a room with 45 ft ceilings, would the cage not work ?
Would also: disnecessitate function A - the air intake / damper while allowing visual assessment of sticks progress to burn chamber from hundreds of yards away.
Alright, here's to hoping my first permies comment is NOTHInG but revolutionary
