Re: Wood-Fired Steam Engine to Drive Generator?

Clothes drying - not sure what a "dryer hut" is but an old fashioned clothes line works just fine - stuff gets a little stiff and need to watch for bugs.

Here is my proposed "dryer hut" design which will work in a bug infested swamp ... during a hurricane. Clothes go in the top chamber. Fire in the bottom chamber. A few watts to rotate the desiccant wheels at a few rpm.

And soot from the fire plugs up your desiccant wheel after a day or two.

some improvements to the dryer hut:

- separate chimney for combustion chamber
- insulation to prevent recharge in top half of wheel
- simple heat exchanger and small fan for bottom half
