steel adv combustion

Unread postAuthor: steel spuds » Tue Jun 03, 2008 3:30 am

this is my steel advanced combustion
dimentions
combustion chamber
22cm long
10cm diameter
made from truck exhaust with end caps welded on it the back is off a 44 gallen drum and there some electrical thread on the barrel just has a gas heater igniter on it and a chamber fan out of a old computer.Runs off propane and the bulk of the regulator is some pipe with fittings bronze welded on the ends. If you are wondering what the big patch is it is where i cut the hole to put the chamber fan in because it started off as a very simple combustion and that was the only way i could do it without haveing to weld it back up. The hole thing cost me pretty much nothing as i had most of the materials at home.

probly should clean it up and give it a paint job but i kind of like the look now

I like it, looks like it could eat you and then shot you out.

Only thing you might want to change in the future is your propane tank, you might want to mount it to the chamber to get it out of the way. Other than that good job :D
