Today, I have done some more experiments with 'Magh Utham Woodgas Burner'
and also considering the observations made by Crispin and Andrew Parker. The
performance was excellent.
This blog is updated with latest photos and video clip.
The following steps were taken.
1. A smaller diameter combustion container was taken 2. The central
secondary air supply pipe was placed about three inches lower than the rim
of combustion chamber and sideways secondary air holes are about 1.5 inches
above from the central secondary air holes.
With one simple central steel pipe of about 2 feet in length and a simple
grate, the very low cost natural draft woodgas stoves < $2 can be
facilitated to the poor communities. Because the combustion chamber can be
easily created by potter or can be made up of clay or bricks or
ferro-cement, etc. The removal of char and re-loading can be done many ways
