6" Rocket Heater Barrel Build Kit

  • Here is a top plate painted bark brown metallic and a divider plate painted black. The round white gasket fits underneath a 55 gallon steel drum; it prevents the exhaust gases from escaping into the room. Gaskets on both sides of the divider plate also divide the exhaust gases from the incoming air for combustion around the burn tunnel.
  • The kit includes 2 of these; one for each side of the barrel. The latches are attached to the firebrick surface (not the tile) using concrete penetrating screws. They catch the rim of the barrel and prevent the barrel from being unintentionally knocked out of place.
  • This is the divider plate and the 4 gaskets which come with it.
  • The 6" Dragon Burner. The Feed Tube is on the left. The burn tunnel is the base and the heat riser is on the right. There is a gasket between the feed tube and the burn tunnel and another between the heat riser and the burn tunnel. This functioning of the combustion system is described elsewhere on this site.
