Heya folks. Long time no hear. Been busy and now it is time to close old and start new season. As you may know i am from Poland and finally it is going to happen. The rocket stoves with tiles. Mostlikely first KachelRocket:)
I am preparing this design for the workshops that i am going to give in the oldest Kachel factory in Poland. It is going to be held on the January 15th. I am going to publish some picture and the design as well if you wish. Stay tune and if you are around Poland maybe you will like to come for the workshops and build that beauty together:)
Hmmm. I'm from Germany, near Nuremberg, Bavaria. Never been in Poland. Start to think about it...
Do you really say "Kachel" in Polish?
How it is with the authorities in Poland concerning rocket heaters? I started to write something like German/EU guidelines for constructing and controlling RMH through the chimney authorities... I even started the first RMH Association in Germany...

Hey. Mwalimu. In poland we say: Kafel:) In Poland now there is no problem with autorities... so we can build wahtever we can:) At least for now... It would be really nice to make some connections... and if it would be possible to build Kachel_Rocket in Germany than we could think about making small production here... I have an access to the oldest "Kachel" factory in Poland. Please write me an private message... We could do some real testing on the stove and see what is the emission of that... And maybe try to certify it somehow.
Some update on the tiled rocket stove here... We have finished it making on a workshop. It was quite interesting since many professional stove builders attended the workshop. I think it was the first time when Rockets where introduced to the mainstream builders. They were quite interested. And here is some photos from the build:
1. Preparing a heat riser from the special insulative firebrick. The company claims that they can resist the direct flame contact. It is the first insulative material with this kind of characteristic i could find. Hoping this one to be much more durable than the vacumed form ceramic fibre risers. Cost: around 100US for the whole riser.
2. Preparing the first layer. On the picture we can see the StoveMaster builder who was responsible for making the tiles.
3. Preparing the tiles. They are the best you can find in Poland. Also the oldest traditional hand made Tiles. From the oldest working factory in Poland.
4. The old way of preparing the Tiles.
5. The first row.
6. The tiles that are around 6cm are lined with the 6cm firebrick inside which gives the 13cm solid wall of ceramic material.
7. Mounting the custom made doors.
8.And here it is the batchbox made of firebrick. System is 16cm.
9. The riser. We glue it with special kind of refractory glue for insulative materials... It was working very well... Proudly i can say that it was also produced in Poland and it is called MORTALEX:)
10. Riser finished, and we are continue with the walls. As you can see it will be one bell system.
11.Capping the stove only with the firebrick... Later if you are interested i will post the image of the capping system. It is a little bit to thick i think.
12. Modern design of the doors, meets the traditional tiles... Does`nt work well from my point of view. I am thinking about making a retro version of the doors from cast iron for this kind of the stoves, and the new design for some minimalistic stoves... But i will have to change the P-channel into S-Portal i think since somehow i do not like to much the hole on the top of the doors:) BTW the doors can be ordered:)
13. And here it is our finished baby. Mostlikely the first tiled rocket stove. Now i would like to make it from the new modern ceramic tiles... But seems like those new big dimensions of ceramic tiles are quite expensive. So it will become a product for more rich customers which is a little bit contrary to the ideology of rocketstove world.
Thank you veru much for inspiration i got on this forum which brings me to this point where i am right now. Next step i am thinking is to make a rocket stove batch-box certified so it could be sold in Europe and it will become legal... If you would like to help in this please let me know.

daniel: in my experience as I am working now on something of that nature, I have thought of making a heat exchanger and distributing the heat through vents using a slower fan. Now after a few years I realize that mass heaters give out primarily radiant heat, for

vesuvius: Do any of you have experience with using the glass from home oven doors on a rocket stove? I'd like to have a viewing port on my stove but don't want to fork out for new ceramic glass. Any thought as to whether it would take the heat of a rocket stove?
