Welcome to the Rocket Stove Institute

Honoring Simple Principles of Fire and Introducing a New Class of Wood Burning "Rocket Stoves".

Understanding the way we create and use heat with the principles of science.

Rocket Stove Institute presents 

Principles of Combustion

Rocket Stove Principles are so profound and powerful that they are able to bring  humanity into a whole new age of personal energy independence and more sustainable living.

Working with Dr. Larry Winiarski, the inventor of the rocket stove and author of the Ten Principles of Combustion, the Rocket Stove Institute has designed, built and implemented the rugged forge-like SR100 Rocket Stove Combustion Chamber –Thermal Battery — Radiant Heat System which provides continuous heat and keeps people warm in their homes, heats greenhouses and work spaces, and provides hot water for kitchen, showers, bath and hot tub.

The Combustion Chamber design follows the Rocket Stove “Principles of Combustion” (A. K. A. “Ten Commandments of Combustion”).  This means that the rocket stove uses 90% less wood and the fire  burns as hot as possible to achieve complete combustion andl produce the least  pollution,   The tall insulated chimney allows additional combustion.  An incredible amount of pure heat  is captured in water circulating through copper tubing and heats the water in the “Thermal Battery” which is the core of the Radiant Heat system.    

The first video is one of the early burns of the pellet hopper automatic feeding system and burn.  Larry’s voice in the background is saying that this stove burns pellets in the same heat range as coal.  The pulsing is called the thermoacoustic effect and is used to create refridgeration.  Ben and Jerry’s uses this method to freeze their ice cream.  

The second video shows that we are able to burn wood (biomass) with a blue flame.  A blue flame is quite pure and burns hot.  Refined chimney gases are then able to fuel internal combustion engines and to run electrical generators.  

Complete combustion is when all the carbon bonds are broken and only water and carbon dioxide come from the chimney.
