Tractor exhaust extraction

Recommended Posts

I was not sure at what temp the galv starts to cause problems.

 

Does it actually need melting or just getting very hot?

 

Also dep on how close the pipe is to the engine.

Surely a generator exhaust clamped onto Tractor exhaust is all you need? its just a  tube of correct diameter  fitted to the existing pipe and out to the nearest outside point? 

 

In HGV garage we had roof mounted extractor fans with long flexi 4" tubes to put on exhaust when running engines in workshop these drew plenty of fresh air as well as exhaust gases as weren't sealed just hooked over exsiting truck pipes (which changed location on each unit) but if  this is a fixed install  just the right Diameter tube as long as not to far. Assuming shed roof isn't 10m above the current exhaust stack?

Looking at a 6m length of going straight up into the roof. The roof is a corrugated concrete fibre roof so would have to make a hole. Next question would be how to stabilise the pipe as a a lot of weight on exhaust (straight pipe exhaust) and the against the roof... tractor will be staying there for 10 months of the year needed for hay making in summer

Make a frame to carry the pipe but if it's asbestos sheet don't bother how far to nearest wall? Exhaust tube isn't very heavy but 6m will need support you almost need a old flue stack and feed exhaust into it if 6m+ I would make a frame from unistrut fix to the purlins and the floor 6m lengths of 40x80 aren't too expensive  2 of them will carry the tube no bother then just need a flue outlet kit for the roof
