Air will be sucked in at that spot most efficiently, violent turbulence just behind will cause adequate mixing of the combustible gases and fresh air. When you feed air in at a later stage this isn't mixed that well. To find out all this costs me the best part of a year, and I tried literally every configuration I could think of, including something similar to yours.

So the answer to your interpretation is, broadly speaking, yes. Feeding in air at high temperature (commonly 350ยบ C or there about, being the self-combustion level of woodgas) is also very important, nicely done by p-channel or floor channel alike.



Hi Peter,
Thanks for your answer. The theme is always more interesting to me. Slowly I get behind the connections. It raises another question for me. As intended in the drawing, I intend to direct the combustion air through a DN 160 mm pipe into the walled wreath.
Is this ok or should the greenhouse be used for combustion.
Greeting Michael

Does that mean 5 metres and 3.5 metres?

If so, I think there is too much pipe.  The stove won't be able to push the hot gas all the way through that much pipe, especially with all those corners.

What is the diameter of the feed tube and heat riser on the stove?  The greater the diameter, the further it can push, but I think you will still need to reduce the length of the pipes.
