The engine needs heat to run. We have developed a simple "Fire Box" for providing the external heat to power the engine. Our Fire Box can be configured for wood or propane fuels (solar is under development). The main core of the Fire Box is a 55 gallon steel drum. The wood Fire Box comes bare, but can be covered with fiberglass insulation if area heating is not desired. Both of our Fire Boxes (propane and wood) require good ventilation.
The wood Fire Box includes a "rocket stove" type design for wood burning. This allows the addition of wood to the Fire Box without having to lift the lid of the box. The rocket stove burner elevates the temperature of the burning wood so that the particulate matter emitting from the flue is minimized (i.e. clean burning emission).
Delivery currently estimated at 45 days from order - shipping charges are addition (estimated at $100).
