If you put the damper below the cast iron pipes you shouldnt need to insulate them as most of the heat will stay trapped in the oven.

Greetings
its been long , very long since i posted.
its been over a year that the wfo has been running without a break. we made a few modifications on the oven during the year.
1) i noticed that the supporting wall on the left of the oven was giving way, we replaced it with a 12 inch steel reenforced concrete wall in place of the old 4inch brick wall. this was done in january.
2) during the same time i also replace the canopy above the restaurant and the oven.
3) also replaced the aluminium sheet metal chimney to a stainless steel sheet metal one with an internal dampener.
i shall add a few more pictures in the next post.

Talking Re: Large WFO in India

as promised here are a few pictures of the oven now
the second picture shows a the area behind the door which wasnt used at all and acted as an ash collection area covered up .
the third picture shows the new ss chimney.
added next is a close to 360 degree shot of my restaurant from above the oven.
and the last one is from one of the sides of the restaurant.

How is the bread making going? I know initially you wanted to make several hundred loaves of bread per day.

If I ever am in your neighborhood, I'll make it a point to drop in.

What a terrific addition to your business. Are your other pizza ovens still in use? If so, which oven type do your customers seem to prefer?
