Your efforts will save people a lot of time (researching, tinkering, building, rebuilding, etc.) a lot of headaches, and a lot of money. Thank you for everything you've done in this area! It's a substantial contribution that is appreciated by many.
Bell with dead-end benches is added to the "Applications" chapter. Text need some corrections so there will be changes in the following days. batchrocket.eu/en/
There's more to come but this will take some time, I need to write the articles in Dutch first. Articles in the pipeline are: cast single bell mass heater in a passive house and a central heating boiler powered by a batch rocket, both in daily use and succesful last winter. Could take a week or more, watch this space.

Greetings all, Each time I think I have something wise to say I find that it has been better covered elsewhere. Peter could you find a space for the temperature colour chart? This very clear chart was included in a thread or comment by a contributor from somewhere like Slovakia. I did not save it and have not been able find it as yet. I think it would fit into the explanation of the temperatures high that can be generated in a good wood burner.
A pizza oven cum pool heater has been added to the "Applications" chapter. Some notes need to be made and Terry need to read through is before it is fit to be declared ready. This isn't a translated article, the author wrote it in English himself. See batchrocket.eu/en/
Peter, I've been absent for a while, but I must say...WOW! You have really outdone yourself, and I am thankful for your contributions and tremendous efforts, and everyone else here that has forged ahead with your batch box design! Bravo, Sir! Eric VW
Jacobus and Jacintoda, could you begin with the offered translation to French, please? The Introduction and Workings chapters are finalized as far I am concerned, so that would be a good place to start. Other chapters need to be read and corrected by Terry first, I will signal a go-ahead when the next one is done.
For good measure: could you figure out who's the better translator so the other can proof read, do corrections and send text to me. Best to do that by email, give a reaction at the new "Contact" menu item on the site so I am able to answer and start the exchange. Try to send text in bare txt format, that's what I need in the website editor. Where in the text links or pictures are incorporated use a signal like <<picture>> to let me know what is required.
At the same time, a Spanish translation will take off, also by email. This website filling is exploding to a major undertaking so it's imperative that we coordinate tightly.
Yasintoda translated a couple of big chunks into French so far, Introduction and Workings are ready. It will be definitely a multi-lingual site instead of bi-lingual as planned, much to my surprise. And , I must add, delight.

Another article has been added, about "Bell sizing" in the "Applications" chapter. Terry, my Australian editor, thought this aspect was sadly missing in the "Bell theory" section. I think he was right. batchrocket.eu/en
Part of the Applications chapter is translated into French by Yasin Gach. Plans are on the way to implement a Slovenian and an Albanian translation. This starts to look a lot like a worldwide project, I need to think about updating the content from time to time.
Two more items of the Applications chapter are translated into French by Yasin Gach. The complete Building and Designs chapters are converted to Spanish by Pablo Kulbaba. Especially that last one caused a flood of new visitors to the site, Argentina shot up from 9th to 3rd place in the ranking and a new day record is reached. I had to ditch the Albanian version due to incompatible differences of opinion with the proposed translator. The structure is still there, so it could be picked up by another volunteer coming by. The Slovenian version has the Introduction done and a Polish version is in the wings. batchrocket.eu/en
TexasGonzo: Sooooo glad I found this site! Its always rewarding to find such a super group of folks! To any and all, feel free to PM me anytime. Thanks for having me!

deadstarsstillburn: Hi there. I was directed this way by folks on the Permies.com website and am hoping I can get some information on how a total newbie can get started designing, siting, building, and not-dying-in-a-horrible-house-fire with a new RMH in a 160-year old home
Oct 21, 2020 6:52:10 GMT -8
deadstarsstillburn: The people over there recommended either a 6" batchbox or an 8" J-tube. I don't know what those are but am going to try to figure that out. What I need is a blueprint that I can scale to fit the need for my house. I have something likne 5000 square feet
Oct 21, 2020 6:53:00 GMT -8
deadstarsstillburn: but I do not need to heat all of it by any means. probably only need to heat half of that, maybe less.
Oct 21, 2020 6:53:15 GMT -8
deadstarsstillburn: moreover, the house has 3 storeys (large attic) so I assume if I get very efficient heating on the ground floor, that will go a long way toward heating the upstairs as well, no?
