This idea also works for oil. But there we have Cm(H2O)n – so the equations are harder. My put a metal mesh between the flame novel, and the water boiling plate,
Al foil reduces the gas burn by 30% for the same heat. And Al foil is cheap and easy to use.
Ti wools works better – 60% less gas or oil burn. But it is dearer, and harder to work with.
Here we probably want metal shears, rather than just scissors. Bering gas does Molecular Nuclear Fusion
1 CH4+pO2+TU->CO2+H2O+r(He+O+E2+X-ray) TU=turbulence
So we oxidise some of the Hs, but also turn some into He and heat. It all depends on the amount of turbulence. If we Ti plate the flame surface of the boiler, we double the heat we get – as we double the Molecular Nuclear Fusion.
But as the flame passes through a metal foil, we increase the turbulence – hence the extra heat from Aluminium wool.
If we use Ti wool, we get more than double the heat increase! As we do more Face Centred Cubic Molecular Nuclear Fusion. This was taught to me at Sheffield University in1983 – though none of us knew about Molecular Nuclear Fusion.
So the home use can buy Ti wool from their hardware store. 3Cm wide. And cut it into strips, over their central heating flame area. The wool will cost $10 – but only cost 80 cents to produce.
The next time we fire up the boiler – we only need to burn 40% of the gas fro the same heat. The radiation does not even make it into the kitchen
The hardware shop can sell small torouses of Al or Ti, to increase gas flame heat on a cooker.
