Hello ,I had an idea to combine a standard pellet burner with a riser,
and want to know your opinions about this combination and further installation in a rocket furnace or rocket boiler .
Sorry,the picture is not loaded, although it is small.
At the same time, a construct is seen in which a pellet burner can to be installed into an ordinary rocket stove.
It's not only about comfort, but also the possibility of automation of use .
To organize the pyrolysis of the flame and subsequent afterburning in the riser, I think it is necessary to organize tangential air supply to the bottom of the riser, not far from the conditional channel formed by the pellet burner housing.
Maybe, such combination, together with an appropriate electronic control device with feedbacks on oxygen and flue gas temperature, could work well when using poor quality pellets.
There are also thoughts to use a universal flame burner for pellets, stone fruits and coal-peas.
And here's another ... what if a flame pellet burner is installed in Berg's firebox, and pellets are fired from sunflower husks there? It will be valid, one hundred percent. There are constructions in which firewood burns together with a pellet flame burner. And the rocket will burn. For example, make a second entrance in the riser, under a pellet flame burner. Let there be a firebox and a pellet burner.
If you are going to use control devices which I assume includes fans, then I do not think you need to use the rocket stove riser at all.
The design of the rocket stove is to insure complete combustion using sticks and natural draft. If you have an auger to feed a small amount of pellets (seeds, etc) onto a crucible where a fan blows the exact amount of air to combust them, you do not need a rocket stove, as far as I can see. donkey32.proboards.com/post/new/3790
I assumed there would be similar opinions. Natural vacuum in the firebox is good, but to burn mediocre quality fuel,in special pellets, gas velocities and unburned partice pirolisation of fuel in the flame are needed. The riser, due to its design, in my opinion, is quite suitable for these purposes.
The chemical composition of the flame is highly unstable and inconsistent over time.
In addition to incandescent gases, there are also aerosols and simply carried away, non-pyrolyzed particles of solid fuel.
This is of course the basic premise of the experiment. The second is the exclusion of wood slavery, it is one thing to contemplate the burning of wood in a firebox on weekends, and another thing to be a stoker near the boiler.
For example, I am a working man, and I need warmth and hot water in the house, without involving my beatiful half in this process.
I too am interested in this idea. I have both a pellet stove and a batch box rocket mass heater. I love the ease of operation of the pellet stove, but I've wondered if more heat could be reclaimed from the burn by passing the pellet stove exhaust gases through a masonry bell before sending it out the chimney. If the metal box and blowers suck all the heat out first, then there wouldn't be any value. I guess I'll have to put a temp gauge on the pellet stove's chimney at the roof this week an find out.
Its possible different stage. For example Fuel in the firebox can be in the gas generation mode, it controls the process and, in particular, the blowing can to be controlled of the pellet flame burner.

michaelegan: i am unable to open the sketchup files on my mac. I used sketchup a few years back but apparently the company now requires a subscription. does anyone have any advice/instructions on how to use the program or how to view pictures without spending money?

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

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

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?
