PostSubject: long feed tube for pellets   Sat Dec 14, 2013 9:29 am

what about designing a horizontal feed tube to a rocket mass heater that would be filled with pellets or wood that would last a long time and would be easily removed and replaced with a preloaded tube to stop the constant feeding process like peska's designs

The tube would be perforated or a form of grill where air would flow round or through it would be lit at the front and inserted into a long feed tube to give a longer burn so less maintenance of the stove

I saw a video somewhere that showed a guy's stove, modified to burn these formed sawdust cakes that were essentially the size of a 3 lb. coffee can with about a 1" hole down the middle. He slotted one horizontally into the burn chamber, lit a fire in the center tube of the cake, closed the door and set the draft. It burned for a respectable amount of time and produced good heat, but still probably wasn't as easy to deal with as pellets.

Of course, YMMV.

Cheers.

IT can be done, try to make a prototype, and show us the results.
