Portable combustion device utilizing thermoelectrical generation
Publication/Patent Number: US9844300B2 Publication Date: 2017-12-19 Application Number: 14/602,209 Filing Date: 2015-01-21 Inventor: Cedar, Jonathan N.   Drummond, Alexander H.   Macdiarmid, Monte   Tammer, Olev   Connelly, Timothy M.   Shultz, Kurtis   Burns, Clay   Assignee: BioLite LLC   IPC: F24B1/00 Abstract: This invention provides a portable combustion device that provides a cleaner combustion, provides a more efficient overall combustion through the use of a fan that directs a predetermined volume of airflow over the combustible fuel—typically wood or similar cellulose-based biological solids and provides a cooking surface that is a grill top. The combustion device has a combustion chamber into which the fuel source is placed for combustion. Mounted to the side of the combustion chamber is a housing that encloses the TEG, which generates an electrical output, based on a difference in temperature on opposing sides. Mounted onto the TEG housing and protruding into the combustion chamber through a small passageway is a heat-conducting probe and heat-conducting probe base unit. This invention provides a portable combustion device that provides a cleaner combustion, provides a more efficient overall combustion through the use of a fan that directs a predetermined volume of airflow over the combustible fuel—typically wood or similar ...More ...Less
