Kon-Tiki Kiln Heat Recovery System
Exhibit Code: OUT-0010
Zone: Engineering Park
Location: Outside (OUT/000) - Unity Quad
Time: All Day
Appropriate for all ages? Yes
The goal of this project is to heat water to a safe bathing temperature, and, if the temperatures can be held consistently, to pasteurize the water. Because the kiln is used in countries where education can be minimal, operator ease and simple setup are key requirements for the recovery system. Biochar kilns also come in various sizes, so the heat reclamation system should be adaptable to those existing kilns.
