It is safe to the equipped outdoor fire worksper person reassuringly. After all, it creates an atmosphere of comfort and warmth. But not all have the ability to build in their own home or at the fireplace area. Perfect alternative to this device can act as Bio Fireplace - live fire without smoke and ash. Unlike the conventional embodiment does not involve Bio Fireplace flue arrangement as in the combustion of biofuel not allocated any harmful substances.
Biofireplaces can safely be called a new generationtraditional wood-burning fireplaces and heating devices. This living flame resulting from the combustion of biofuels, generated from alcohol, it does not emit soot and smoke and leaves no traces of burning and soot.
Modern bio fireplaces have long won the love among a wide range of customers due to the attractive appearance and safety in the use of
They can be installed in open areassuburban area or indoors at home. But as the open fire tends to burn oxygen, the room in which lights up a makeshift hearth must be periodically aired.
Depending on the device's location secrete several kinds of bio fireplaces: wall, floor and table.
Wall - Compact and slim design, the side and rear walls are made of metal, and the front part of the protected glass
Desktop - act miniature imitation fireplace. They have a protective glass screen, through which can be seen perfectly live fire
Floor - mimic traditional wood-burning devices. They are placed on the floor of the open areas, or recesses or corners of the room
Depending on the size of the design biofireplacescan have from one to several fuel units - burners. The fuel most commonly used bioethanol, which leaves the combustion products.
Bio fireplaces have a lot of advantages: easy installation, does not require a chimney arrangement, there is no dirt on the wood, there is no soot or smoke. The only drawback of the popular heating devices is their price. However, the master owning the basic knowledge and skills with construction, will be able to confirm that the Bio Fireplace to make your own hands is not so complicated.
We suggest you watch the video, which is constructed simple model biofireplaces that you understand how simple it is:
we need to manufacture a desktop focus:
- Glass and glass cutter;
- Silicone sealant (for bonding of glass);
- Metal grid;
- Metal box under the base of the structure;
- Capacity for the fuel;
- Non-combustible composite materials;
- Shnurok- wick;
- Fuel for bio fireplaces;
For the arrangement of the fireplace screen you can use an ordinary pane of glass in a thickness of 3 mm or glass picture frames.
The simplest form of table bio fireplaces - with a rectangular or square base. Construction of such a construction will take only a few hours
As a metal base meshperfect for baking ovens, grill or barbecue construction stainless steel mesh. For everything under the fuel tank can be used metallic glass. Fuel block biofireplaces easiest thing to do from a metal planter square or rectangular.
An alternative non-flammable composites can perform sea pebbles and any heat-resistant stones of small size
design dimensions depend only on the wishes ofwizard. However, when calculating the size it should be noted that the distance from the burner to the side windows must not exceed 15 cm. At the same time, the location is too close to the window open fire there is a chance that it will burst. Number of burners determined considering the size of the site or room. On average, an area of 16 square meters is enough desktop biofireplaces single burner.
Having defined the dimensions of the structure and given the size of the bottom of the bio fireplaces - metallic fuel unit, cut 4 bars of glass.
From blanks collect glass cover, which will serve as biofireplaces screen. The glass elements are joined together using silicone sealant
Carefully connect and glue all the glass elements, leaving the screen to complete the sealant dries. The remains of the dried silicone sealant handy to clean off the conventional blade.
To fix the glass blanks are well assembled screen is positioned between fixed objects, and leave it for a few hours
Go to the arrangement of the fuel supply.
In the center of the metal box setjar filled with fuel. If everything Biofireplaces use two or more burners, they are placed in a box at a distance of 15 centimeters from each other
Making the mesh flooring: a metal lattice with scissors metal cut out a rectangle whose size corresponds to the dimensions of the box.
The metal lattice boxes stacked on the walls, design for reliability prihvatyvaya angles in several places welds
Because the lace is twisted wick and immerse oneits ends to the tank with fuel. Samu metal mesh sheltering refractory stones, decorate ceramic logs and other non-combustible materials.
Besides the decorative function of heat-resistant stones will evenly distribute the heat of the burner across the grating surface to the glass casing
Table Bio Fireplace ready. One can only be installed on a metal block glass box and set fire to the wick soaked with fuel.
Corner bio fireplaces option is interesting in that itIt can be safely placed in the corner of the gazebo or porch. Taking up minimal space, it will bring to the notes of the atmosphere of coziness and comfort, offers a friendly setting.
Since the Bio Fireplace is an object of high fire risk, should always leave sufficient distance from the source to the walls and the upper part of the structure
For the manufacture of angled design, we need:
- The guide and rack metal profile length of 9 m;
- 1 sheet of non-combustible gypsum board;
- 2 m of mineral (basalt) cotton;
- Finishing plaster;
- 2.5 sq.m of tiles or artificial stone;
- Grout and heat resistant adhesive for tiles;
- Dowel-nails and screws;
- Capacity for the fuel;
- Heat-resistant and non-combustible stone decorative elements.
Having defined the location anddesign the future home for the calculation of the necessary literacy materials and visualization of the image on a sheet of paper draw a sketch, keeping the aspect ratio. Then you can tinkering, it is best to start with the marking.
On the wall we put markings on which is attached a pre-cut guide profiles. They insert rack profiles, fixing elements are screws
Once checked the verticality of the structure with the help of a plumb, attach the frame to the wall using dowels, nails and screws. Stands for fire safety, it is desirable to seal the webs.
The framework itself is outside is sheathed with plasterboard, screwing it on the screws every 10-15 cm. The furnace area paving the 5-cm layer of mineral wool
In the bottom of the furnace leave a recess in whichthen we will install the burner. Since the operation of the hearth temperature around the burner can reach 150 ° C, the base fuel are often made of hard non-combustible material.
Steering plasterboard construction zashpaklevyvaem stones and tiles, refractory tiles or natural stone, which is organically combined with the other elements of the recreational areas
After the completion of special grout joints will be overwritten.
Fireplace ready. It is necessary to wipe the surface with a damp and then a dry cloth and put heat-resistant stones and decorative elements
As a container for convenient biotovlivause a special tank or cylinder burner. To ensure the safety of loved ones, the front wall can be closed biofireplaces heat-resistant glass and wrought-iron grate.
Fuel for biofireplaces acts bioethanol -the liquid is colorless and odorless, contains alcohol and serving substitute for gasoline. Its main advantage is that it is in the process of combustion does not emit harmful gases and leaves no soot and soot. Therefore, biofuel fireplaces do not require installation of hoods, and thus a wholly heat. And also in the process of combustion of bioethanol by escaping water vapor occurs humidification.
Purchase fuel in specialized stores possible. It is produced in plastic bottles and cans. One liter of liquid is enough for 2-5 hours of continuous burning
Fuel for bio fireplaces can be made with your own hands. This will require:
- Medical alcohol is 90-96 degrees;
- Gasoline for lighters Zippo.
Petrol is able to turn blue laboratoryflames in the living center of orange. It is only necessary to mix the two ingredients in such proportions that the gasoline was 10.6% of the volume of medical alcohol. Ready composition thoroughly shaken and poured into the fuel tank. Fuel consumption is 100 ml per 1 hour of burning.
After igniting the first 2-3 minutes of fuel isa small flame within a few meters away from the Bio Fireplace felt a slight odor of alcohol. But as heating fuel, when couples start to burn, not the liquid, the smell quickly dissipated, and the flame becomes lively and playful.
