Hearth Dimensions

Inverted V Hearth Dimensions

Here are the dimensions of the inverted V hearth for an Imbert style gasifier. The original Imberts didn't use this style, but it came into wider use in the later years of the war. The cone supports an ash cone which is impervious to heat, and self-repairing.
