Sealed Thermostat Switch and Heat Exchanger

At the core of this innovative setup is the sealed thermostat switch, strategically mounted to a heat exchanger. The heat exchanger is connected to a blower, creating a dynamic system that enhances the performance of the rocket stove.


The sealed thermostat switch responds to temperature changes in the heat exchanger. When the water in the exchanger pipes reaches 100°F, the switch activates the blower, providing an optimal boost to the rocket stove’s efficiency. Conversely, when the temperature drops to 85°F, the switch turns the blower off, ensuring controlled and efficient operation.
