SuperCat Afterburner

Postby Blue52 » Fri Jan 21, 2011 5:36 pm

Still evolving stove design I came up with after experimenting with the super cat design. Tinkering with the ports on the super cat design I then graduated adding a a windscreen and heat transfer screen and all in one. Still needs an additional windscreen when windy though as of design right now. So far I have three aluminum large cat food cans, one sausage can and a stainless steel screen. I can remove center can to achieve a less intense flame and gain longer burn time up to 12min on 30ml of meth/ heet yelllow, boiling 2 cups of water at 6:30 -7:30min. Or add the center can back and gain a more intense flame for fast boil times 4-5 min consistently on 30ml of meth for a total burn time of 7:30. Just started testing with Everclear 151 proof Getting good results. Testing head to head with an msr pocket rocket. I'm at sea level testing ambient night time air and water temps below 50 degrees with very little wind. Everclear boil times from 5-6min and pocket rocket 6-6:30 after three head to head tests.

Very nice! The supercat stove took my thought process to whole new level. Look forward to seeing future work!

It's very interesting to see the results of adding and subtracting different factors. Distance from flame to pot, air entering the base of the pot support and the mesh size of the red hot afterburner portion and also the type of fuel. Developing a stove takes lots of time. Sometimes we luck out and get it right in one days time. I once made a supercat stove with one elongated jet slot on one side of the can. It worked, meaning it stayed lit with a pot on top of it. :) Worked great as simmer stove. Made one with four large holes placed every quarter turn, made it a good simmer stove. Made one with 2 rows of holes and when one row was blocked of it simmered. Lots of possibilities with the fancy feast catfood cans. Anyone have a box full of cans they can send me :mrgreen:

I have not viewed all three of your vids yet but will do later. Thanks for sharing them.

Dry food for our cats too. Although every once in a while I buy them a treat so they can have the empty can. Umm, I mean so *I* get the empty can. Ok maybe I am buying me a treat, but they seem happy about it too.

I only buy the canned food when I need to make stoves. 2 dozen at a time, empty them into snack size ziploks and then freeze them. I use them for when the cat needs a treat, other wise it's dry food. She gets her share of mice meat when I take her into the green house for a few hours. Moles just get left to go the way of the earth. :roll: Finicky cat!!!! :D

Sounds like you should be in the market for another cat. :lol: One that catches and eats moles with the more important benefit of doubling your cat tin purchases. :lol:
