Monotube boiler - length of tubing

Posted by clint conder on March 08, 2010 at 21:53:39:

I'm building quite a unique boiler. It is solar on top and wood buring on the bottom (Pellets, logs). I'm trying to take advantage of the heat and run a monotube through the boiler for safety and also to run a steam engine. The requirements for this steam engine are 125-150psi 360degrees and 22cubic inches of steam per revolution. Can I obtain those numbers from this monotube? And is there a formula that tells me how many lineal ft of 1/4 inch stainless tubing to run to hit those numbers? Any information will be appreciated. Also I do not want to get the heat in the boiler up more than 750-1000 degree F range.

Thanks Clint
