Temperature Measurements and Heat Loss

By taking temperature measurements of the surround and using knowledge of the thermal conductivities of the materials in the two installations, estimates were made of the heat loss through the surrounds and their averaged thermal conductivities. It was calculated that the thermal conductivity was approximately five times lower and the heat loss through the surround was about seven times lower for the Stovebox installation. In the latter respect the calculated heat flux through the walls of the "conventional" installation was calculated to be 80 W and that for the Stovebox, 11 W. Although these numbers are small, the benefits of the Stovebox are real in that the heat flux was reduced by 86%.

The results of the test concluded that with an installation with a Stove box the stove will get warmer quicker and resulting.
