This is the claim made about the very sophisticated wood burning multi purpose heater produced in Texas by “Dragon Heaters”.
The “Dragon Heater” design closely resembles the well known “Rocket Stove” However the design has enhancements and innovations in a number of important ways that collectively, yield results not possible with traditional rocket stoves.
The secret of the Dragon Heaters wonderful performance lies in the design of the combustion chamber.
Dragon Heaters use state of the art wood burning combustion chambers for a wide variety heating appliances. They provide a smokeless burn at an extremely high temperature that is extraordinarily efficient and results in virtually no ash. They require no electricity and do not utilize catalytic converters, so offer the ultimate in reliable low cost off-grid heating.
This design opens up a whole new class of wood burning heaters and appliances. One of the more exciting design features is the ability to have a hybrid heater that includes the elements of both a traditional wood burning cast iron stove and a masonry heater.
This is a very exciting development for the world of Aquaponics. Those who practice Aquaponics in cold climates can easily adapt this “Dragon Heater” technology for low cost greenhouse space heating and system water heating. The “Dragon Heater” uses renewable wood as a fuel source so it is a technology for this time.
Dragon Heaters will be on show and demonstrated at the upcoming Aquaponics Institute event in Spring Texas on September 14, 2013.
See the Dragon Heaters website for more Product Information.
