Home Forums General Discussion stove stack generators? Re: stove stack generators?


One of the big name diesel truck makers; either Kenworth or Freightliner offers a 1 kilowatt thermocouple generator to fit onto the exhaust stack 4″ pipe. Essentially its a large block of inter connected thermo-couples wrapped around the exhaust pipe coming from the engine. Given a diesel exhaust is between 750F and at most 1200F this looks like it could be workable for a wood stove stack with temps held at around 1000F or so. It may take a bit to install but looks do able for a handy person.
