Re: Cyclone Stoves: Part 1

Yes, you are right, that is one of the things I am concentrating on getting right. Here are the things I see as the most important variables to manage: 1) size of holes in and out (remembering that there is more coming out than going in... -ve accumulation) 2) the depth of the particle bed, and the ...

Re: Cyclone Stoves: Part 1

my mind is thoroughly on these stoves atm! Its really annoying I left my camera at my parents house, I cant post any pics/vids of the fluidised beds ive been making! I have got a good design for getting the powder fluidised and spinning when I blow from underneath, I now need to experiment on how mu...

Re: Cyclone Stoves: Part 1

That looks well cool!

What happens if you have any breeze disturbing either the air flow in or the flame?

Re: Cyclone Stoves: Part 1

I know, I thought about that but it would be pretty smokey I think. Also the sulphur (sulfur if your american) wouldnt be welcomed into my tent! I can experiment with it I guess. I was thinking maybe crushing up fire lighters, or solid fuel tablets. I have no experience with solid fuel tablets, are ...

Re: Cyclone Stoves: Part 1

Ive been tempted by an idea of a solid fuel cyclone stove. not a tablet, but powder fuel. If you could get (and it should be possible with a light fuel) the air intake underneath the fuel then you could fluidise the powder, creating perfect combustion conditions. I am going to have an experiment wit...

Re: Bye Bye gas stove, im an alchy now!

I really like the fibreglass idea, before I stumbled across these stoves I made a few of the "penny stoves" but rather than a penny I used a threaded rivet and a screw. They were pretty efficient, so long as there was no wind, it was warm, etc. if it was any of these things it didnt work h...
