adding R-13 insulation on top of inswool - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • adding R-13 insulation on top of inswool

    I have alot of owens corning r-13 (the pink stuff) on top of the recommended amount of inswool blanket. But Pizzabob has some over the top calculations that seem to indicate that there can be too much insulation. On the other hand, I have seen time and time again here that you cannot have too much insulation. Now, maybe his calcs served to make him feel better about not insulating more, but hard to think that he could be wrong. I can still remove mine if need be. I can stand on a ladder and reach over the wall, as I haven't closed up the very top. Interestingly enough, the pink stuff does seem to "fill" with heat. I am hoping that after it fills with heat, that it then rejects it. Perhaps this filling with heat is what pizzabob speaks about. A usage of heat, rather like mass. A real low mass version of a alan scott bread oven.

    There is a point diminishing returns when it comes to insulation. In the chemical industry on piping, there is what is called the point of detriment when too much actually creates a greater heat flux, thus energy balance.

    For what it is worth, do what you want as in reality, the heat balance is not as strict in the residential setting as it is in the industrial setting.

      In my experience the fiberglass insulation tended to compress easily, making it difficult to work over, although if you are doing an enclosure rather than an igloo that would not be a problem.
