PostSubject: Hello from Jamaica   Mon Jan 20, 2014 4:23 am

Hi we are a bamboo and goat farm in Jamaica, and we are attempting to build a rocket stove to make bamboo biochar. After watching Ppotty1 on youtube we are going to make a 6 inch riser. Would appreciate any suggestions and advice. We don't have access to stainless steel. Any concerns and advice is welcomed. Thanks

Welcome to the forum.

Images are universal



If you need help, I can translate it for you.

There is at least one thread in the forum about biochar. Use the search function and you will find it.

Welcome !

If you get a chance, talk to James Hookway.  He has experience in the charcoal field.

Thanks this is the system I am making. I am hoping to improve on the rocket stove by using a round 6 inch riser made out of regular steel.Not sure how long the steel will last.

Hi Compass Farms,

I have used ducting pipe as a rocket stove and it did not last one firing :no: So I would use 5mm thick steel which will last a fair while.

Regards

James

Have a look at my discussion at

You will see how I produced a vortex
