Interesting Device - DIY Boiler

Post by cyberbadger » Tue Mar 02, 2021 7:08 pm

I'm just showing this because I think there are some ideas that this guy on youtube NOBOX7 user is doing are interesting

Previously He was making various atomizing burners that he was making and selling to customers in Africa who were trying to burn waste oil, primarily for the heat or for smelting/cupellation.

He wasn't originally doing steam, but he made a device called a steam machete, which was basically a steam lance with a coil to make steam from a burner.

I'm not 100% sure he knows what he is doing on the steam side, but I know I didn't really know what I was doing when I started steam either.

He says he can evaporate 40 gallons/hr, there is footage of a lot of steam, I think he has maybe a monotube setup in the one drum he has constructed.

So apparently the steam machetes this gentleman makes are selling. steam machete = steam lance+monocoil steam generator

He is trying to make a higher heat propane nozzle, with a very effective but simple steel flameholder.

It sounds like he is going to get into the business of making and selling larger monocoil steam generators/boilers...

I am going to try to make a flameholder like this for my kerosene burners.
