I want to make a heater version with a barrel. I was wondering if anyone tried using a terracota sewer drain pipe for the heat riser from the burn box?

this is the terracota system





I can suggest 6 ways to do this

firebrick
stainless steel
perlite cement mix or vermiculite and cement mix
cement mix using silica sand and an additive to the mix
cobb type build but may need to be rebuilt with usage if too thin as cobbs use a mass build
steel can be used but it will degrade fast due to the high heat

Thank you for your input. I am going to fire brick for the burn area and just a piece of terracota sewer pipe for the stand pipe under the drum. I can see it feel apart as the fire box. The sewer pipe is much thicker than the chimney pipe. Do you think it would hold up under this condition?

if you have got it for free and you think it will take the heat of the rocket stove by all means use it

with the barrel you should be fine but i wouldnt advise upon using a vortex within the sewer pipe as i suspect it will shatter with the heat produced from it

if your paying for it id build it the firebrick way or even fire cement perlite mix or vermiculite mix

the barrel stove i presume and from what ive seen be able to reach temperatures of 500f or 600f but may need replacing often

as we dont know where you are
