Description

The barrel got nice and hot, while the insulated flue stayed cool, and the exhaust really was a little smoke, and mostly warm steam, just like I’ve seen in countless videos. I like the idea of winding tubing around the outside of both barrels to make a wood burning hot water heating system. At TimberIN Hot Tubs, our experts believe in making masterpieces for our clients with excellent quality material, design, and craftsmanship. I'm sure the fire bricks wouldn't hurt if you wanted to go that route, but I've worked at a place years ago that has one of these, and except for it getting a little wavy, it never got cherry red or burned through. These guys sell them, it looks like they are based in holland and sell in the us, maybe you could try them?

The next stage is to built up some brickwork around the base of the firebrick to take a metal cage, within which we can put vermiculite insulation. Normally we have great success in finding materials for nothing, but the firebrick and the sheer quantity of flue required for the mass eluded us this time. Although the basic design of the RMH is a relatively simple one, the devil is in the detail, and after reading as much as possible on the subject, we got ourselves a copy of Ianto Evans excellent book ‘Rocket Mass Heaters’, and followed the dimensions as closely as possible – some of the proportions within a RMH need to be within quite small tolerances to work effectively, and the majority of those builders with problems seemed to be suffering because they had changed some element of the design.Pleased to say that I have found a supply, of once used 45 gallon drums with band held tops, great to work on and seal after, only had acrylic paint in so easy too clean. I've contacted the manufacturer to see if they know of any dealers willing to ship to the UK, but I suspect they may not have any at present.

Please be sure to have available help on hand to assist you with moving the item to the desired location in or outside of your home. Here we are starting to lay put the combustion chamber – the firebrick could be substituted with old red brick, and is joined together using a mortar made from pure clay and very fine sand in the ratio 1:1.I have experimented with this method and must say the energy output required to heat the copper pipes is huge, the efficiency is also very low.

The first five of six firings will need to be gradual with smalls fires allowing the stove to cool after use. So there's already a pretty thick metal shield between the barrel and the studs, and nowhere for flame to go other than out the stack, or the door. Thermal mass could be added by constructing a steel box to enclose both barrels and fill with dry sand. This also faces the outside, so if any heat is absorbed into the aluminum it's lost very very quickly.This stove has passed the requirement of building regulations so that it only requires a 12mm thickness hearth to sit on. I've been reading with interest about using a barrel to burn wood, and then using the radiated heat to heat copper pipes which have been bound around the said barrel.
