The spirits run high as Bob’s Bab Lab produces a roaring Babington burner flame at Factor e Farm:
Our next steps are to put a shroud around the flame for flame continuity, and installing a water heat exchange coil in the shroud for hydronic heating, steam generation, and other applications. We are currently considering a CEB masonry stove – the CEB kachelofen – as a center of our CEB additions. We would like to use this stove for hydronic heating, cooking, drying, and soon as a steam source for combined heat and power.Any details on winding techniques for continuous steel tubing are welcome. We are considering a 100 foot coil of 1/2″ or 3/4″ heat exchange coil – which we are trying to wind in a 6 inch spiral. Also, details on a possible masonry stove design are welcome.
