Experiment 1


Experiment 1

  • We used a Mayon Turbo Stove prototype constructed by a previous class.

  • We modified the structure securing the base as well as the making and welding new connecting arms for the inner drum.
  • Then we bought rice hulls and tested the burn efficiency of the stove, gaining a better understanding of how it worked and what the ease of cooking on it would potentially be.IMG_0834.JPG

Learnings From Experiment

  • Found the preheating element essential and highly efficient.
  • Stove very messy, ash bed dangerous, required frequent attention (tapping).
  • Emitted vast quantities of potentially toxic smoke.
  • Entire structure unsturdy and the exterior was hot to the touch.
