IFB stainless liner school rocket stove
IFB stainless liner school rocket stove skirt detail

On a recent trip to Haiti, I completed the first prototype of a new school rocket stove. This one has a 26 ga 330 stainless steel firebox liner, 2½" insulating firebrick walls, and galvanized steel outer shell. The skirt is 304 stainless inside, 1" ceramic fiber in the skirt floor and walls, and galvanized steel outer. The mouth and firebox are 6½" x 6½". The pot is 40 qts with the top diameter about 1/4" larger than the diameter near the bottom, and is imported. The locally available spherical bottom pots made skirt construction extremely difficult. We hope to someday produce this stove in quantity at a combined vocational school/stove factory.
