Testo problem at beginning of burn.
Testo Raw Data
Oxygen drop at 10 minutes indicates when Testo problem was fixed.
Stack temperature drop at 75 minutes indicates when air supply was cut approx 90%.
The very high stack temperatures compared to earlier runs, indicates that the air slots in the firebox have too much inlet area.
Test MHA-1611 will be a repeat of this one, with the air left wide open.
Then, for test MHA-1612 we will reduce firebox air slots.
