Magh Utham Woodgas Burner ver.2

  1. Dr. Reddy,

    I have very much enjoyed seeing your designs for woodgas stoves. I have a few questions perhaps you can address when you get a chance:

    1. The woodgas potters stoves (circa 2006) seem very artistic and functional. Have they had much success in the field?

    2. What design elements do you feel are most successful at controlling woodgas generation? Have you found that adding a control for primary air supply is beneficial?

    3. How much does heating the secondary air supply help combustion?

    4. Are any of these designs being readily adopted in the field? If not, what is holding them back?
