Woodchip oven/boiler

Recommended Posts

Has anyone seen a woodchip boiler on the market yet that can be used as an oven? I'm thinking the equivalent of an oil fired rayburn that will do hot water and cook.

 

I know you can get one for logs but that will be less efficient and I don't think there's an auto feed one for when you're out.

I've not seen a chip fired one but if you have 9 grand to spare Thornhill do a pellet fired one.

 

In principal there's not  anything special about a chip stoker, Veto used to do one that slotted into a combustion chamber  at the larger scale.

 

A pellet burner burns chips fine as long as they are dry, the problem is that the auger is too steep in the ones I have seen to feed the chips without jamming (this steepness is to allow a long drop into the fire pot that acts as a fire stop).

Thanks, I'll take a look, even if it is a bit out of our price range. I'd heard about the pellet ones but never looked into them as we make our own chip and the pellet price is so volatile. 

 

I guess the reason they aren't made is the storage space required for chip.
