About this deal

I like the idea of the fire and exhaust heat/gasses passing up through, as opposed to around, the box.

Those high temp paints have been used on headers for years (or at least they were in the 70's and 80's) with mediocre performance. It is easily attached on the chimney pipe without the need of extra connectors, and the unique design increases the heat exchanging area without taking a lot of space. I am not sure overall the extra cost vs expected life expectancy of it would be worth it to go to stainless steel. The two better solutions would be a ducted wood furnace and the top option would be an outdoor wood furnace with heat exchanger - but neither of those are options in our case (both cost and other reasons). Or just make a box with NO fire tubes in it, and allow enough space for the smoke to go around the HE on all sides, and weld some baffles inside to make the air travel all throughout the box (rather than taking a shortcut directly from the intake to the exhaust ports) .

I can get some photos of the boiler itself when I go home if it'd help, I think the printout might still be up at my mum's house, I'll look for it as well but doubt I still have it. half lives meaning they would start going off at random (often waking me up thinking there was a fire) and always when trying food. I was thinking you were proposing adding the heat exchanger thingie you drew to a woodstove, not a fireplace.

Even better I've used no kerosene, burned only wood, which comes free to me via the woods out back and pallets picked out of dumpsters.Old masonry stacks were often laid with "sand-lime" mortar, and over the years, the acid vapors in wood smoke will "eat" or dissolve the lime in the sand-lime mortar, leaving the mortar very thin or even crumbling or gone altogether, leaving "holes" in the stack hidden behind the wood walls in your house.

The pressure in the heating ring main does not now effect the pressure in the property and, for example, a leak in one of the houses will not effect the main system, just that single property.It is easily attached on the chimney pipe without the need of extra connectors, and the unique design increases the heat exchanging area without. Since the tubes won't hold any pressure or load of any measure, other than their own weight and what ever low fan pressure to move the air, I am thinking 6010 or 6011 as they are fast freeze, 7014 would have a cleaner bead appearance. Normal gas path straight up, but when the draw fan kicks in sucking the waste gases past the section with the coil on it. Place the ammonia in a container in a well ventilated area and set the Magic Heat Reclaimer on top of it (covering the outlet) for one to two hours.
