I think I might try to make an IV stove one of these days I have all the equipment. The nice part about using IV bags is that you can have the choice from 50ml up to 2 litres.
Remember that IV tubing and administration sets come in 2 sizes, micro and macro drip. Macro drip is 10 gtt per ml, and micro drip can be either 50 or 60 gtt per ml. An easy way to tell the difference is to look at the drip chamber, if it has a metal tube in it is micro drip, if not it is macro drip.
For regulator valves can't you use a roller clamp, you can get a very accurate drip rate with them, especially since a stove will not move thereby affecting the drip rate.
Yes, we use the roller clamp to regulate, very accurate way to do it. The safest way so far. The drip camber on the ones I'm using is minus the steel tube.
Radio waves, I did not think they had that much energy. Micro waves yes. Lots of things are found out by accident.
I did some boiling tests in the middle of winter in my freezing garage. I used windsheid washer solvent for my water so I could use it the next day and not have it be frozen
Wel I did my test with a pyrex coffee pot so I could see the flame patern from up above the pot through the water. The stove shut down and the test was concluded. I shut the garage light off and looked back to where I did my testing and saw that the water was burning.
yeah, I could not see it burning while the light was on. Freaked me out.
It was by accident!!!! The flames had come up along side the pot and ignited the alcohol vapors coming off the solvent. Whoda thunk it!!!
